    “Amazing villa!”

    This place is such a little hidden gem. We stayed for 3 nights but could have spent a whole week here.

    The location is great, just a 10 minute tuk tuk ride to all of the beaches and in a quiet area. The surrounding beaches are really good with good places. Not that you need to eat out as the chef will cook you some amazing food here. Traditional or not.

    Our room was beautiful. It was so spacious we had an area to watch tv and an area to read. We loved sitting with the double doors wide open. The decor makes it feel very luxurious which we really loved.

    The garden and pool are lovely always so clean and well maintained. You could spend days here just relaxing or catching some sun.

    It really was faultless. We highly recommend.

    “Peaceful and full of charm. Pool perfect for family volleyball!”

    We had a three night stay at The Well House in April 2018. We were worried about the location but the house is peaceful and beautifully decorated by its Norwegian owner.

    There were 7 of us as we were on holiday with my inlaws and they kindly put a proper extra bed in one of the rooms for us. The Chef was also excellent. Near to Galle Fort and Wijaya beach.

    “My favorite place!”

    I have just arrived after three weeks at the Well House. I love this place! This was my 6th visit and I’m already looking forward to the 7th visit next year. The staff, especially Dimithu and Sudath, takes very good care of the guest. And Dimithu makes very good food. My favorite place on earth!

    Wonderful house. Nice big garden, close to beach but with own pool. We had most of our dinners in the house, prepared by the staff. Tasteful and good. If you want to dine out, there is a famous hotel with good kitchen just a minute away, Coco Bay hotel. We recommend The Well house for those who young and old people. We miss it already and hope to come back again sometime.

    “Simply delightful”

    Just spent five nights at this beautiful place. The style and elegance is utterly stunning. I just sat looking at the place most of the time. The staff are very professional and helpful. The garden is just beautiful , with monkeys coming to visit most mornings.

    Mark was exceptionally helpful and we had great communications. I was very sorry to leave but will return without hesitation. A real slice of heaven.
