    Someone else mentioned this is a hidden gem and they are spot on. Driving up to this villa, you drive through beautiful scenery though the local villages. When you arrive to the grand entrance and walk inside you are blown away with the high ceilings, stunning design and hint of bright colour that complete the design perfectly. Honestly the images don’t showcase how amazing the villa is. It’s one of the best in Sri Lanka and the price is so cheap for what you get. The villa comes with a team of staff to look after you so you can relax in style.

    A Rare Gem in The Hills Near Unawatuna/Galle

    Villa Wambatu has incredible style while being surrounded by lush nature and stunning views.
    You can have exclusive privacy while only a short car ride away to various beaches and shops.
    It has a feeling of utter luxury and spaciousness with very tasteful artworks and many areas to dwell during the day. You can have a massage , get healthy in the yoga room, relax in the library, have fun with Chef Anthony in the large well equipped kitchen or relax on one of the many comfortable lounge seatings sipping great coffe.
    The beautiful pool is set in the middle of the villa and is inviting at any time of the day to have a splash.
    The friendly staff was there to meet all our needs without being seen all the time . They are super helpful and happy to chat if one wants to find out about Sri Lankan culture.
    I was watching two humming birds on my balcony sipping nectar from the many glorious flowers while lying in my lush bed .
    I recommend Villa Wambatu to everyone who would like something above the ordinary with an unforgettable experience .

    Amazing Experience to Stay Here!

    I was more than pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the modern and colorful architecture! Gorgeous and stunning everywhere I would look. Gem in the middle of Galle mountains. Only minutes drive to the sea. My bedroom was heaven to sleep soundly, and I loved the 3 nights we stayed. They even had yoga mats and a massage table ready for use. The staff took great care of us and were able to always get our needs, tuktuks, meals, conversations met.
    Definitely would return again and tell friends!

    Birthday Weekend

    What a Stunning spacious villa with wonderful staff and great food! We had such a wonderful weekend at VW. The villa is so spacious that guests have plenty of space to retreat to their peaceful lovely bedrooms, each one different to the other & sizable; as well as a reading room, study space & tv lounge.

    Having the pool next to the living room made it easy for our friends with kids to oversee their activities & feel secure having them close by. Love the kitchen!! Easy for guests to be in the same space and not crowding over each other. The view overlooking the coconut tress on top of the hill gives feeling of space, openness & calm to the soul. Absolute Bliss!

    Extra bonus – Una & Talpe beach is only 15 mins away by car.

    One of a Kind!

    Incredible couple of nights at Villa Wambatu, unlike anywhere I’ve stayed in Sri Lanka. Slightly inland from Unawatuna, its in a beautiful, peaceful location with no traffic noise. The chef is exceptionally talented, with everything from local curries to authentic Italian. Rooms comfortable and stylish with great facilities. Would love to return one day. Thank you to all the staff for a memorable stay!

    We swapped Colombo madness for the verdant jungles near Galle this weekend. Villa Wambatu (eggplant in Sinhala) is a riot of colour reminiscent of Hollywood jet set glamour and a Bond villain’s lair with opulent Scarface vibes. The edgy hues of aubergine and fuschia pink on the coloured walls add a touch of royalty and frivolity. Coupled with tropical palms, vines, frangipanis and splashes of bougainvillea this oasis is a tonic for the soul. Thanks for the warm hospitality.

    Modern villa in Peaceful Jungle Environment with Most Amazing Sunsets

    Villa Wambatu is perfect! It is a hidden jungle and we really had a peaceful stay there. Really love the design of the villa, everything is so modern and nicely decorated. You did a great job. And the pool is really big, loved starting and ending the day swimming. Plus, you have an amazing sunsets from the villa.

    The staff is just amazing. Everyone is so nice and helpful with everything. And Anthony makes the best food ever. He’ll make whatever your heart desires and is also a great person to have a chat with.

    It’s really close to Unawatuna beach which is great for sunrise and sunset, especially the famous palm swing.

    We will definitely come back here and we recommend it to everyone. Stay awesome!

    Absolutely Mindblowing

    Our stay at Villa Wambatu was beyond our expectations. What an amazing villa! The rooms are big and beds are really nice, the living room is so nice. Everything just fits into place and seems to be custom made for the house. You can easily stay here with 8 adults. For families with kids this house is perfect as well. Kids will just love the pool. The people working at the house are really friendly and the food was delicious. If you want privacy and want to stay in a 007 mansion; do not look further and just book this house! We hope to come back one day.

    Stunning Spacious Luxurious Villa

    The villa is so beautiful and so comfortable we hardly wanted to leave even though it is ideally located 5 mins from a fab beach and 10 mins from Galle fort. The staff looked after us fantastically, cooking delicious authentic curry and western food when we wanted it. The rooms give everyone privacy and tranquility with amazing ensuite bathrooms open to the fabulous planting and the tropical skies. The social areas though are second to none – just sublime. The views over the surrounding jungle are magical and the best aspect is the late afternoon light reflecting off the pool onto the vibrant colours of the house and its artwork. This is the perfect venue for a model shoot or a pop video. Groups of friends or family or Yoga retreats would love it too.

    Stunning! Truly Outstanding!

    “Good afternoon Mr Bond, we have been expecting you” is what came to mind as I entered the front door of Villa Wambatu. Having come from the jungle, this house had the perfect union between design, comfort and being beautifully connected to nature. I would awake after a very acceptable night ’s slumber, walk downstairs to the dining area to a feast of fruit and perfectly poached eggs prepared by chef Anthony (one of four members of staff). A very lovely chap who can pretty much knock out anything your heart desires. I can’t wait to be back to this dream home.

    Exquisite Luxury Meets Nature

    We stayed here for 4 days and didn’t want to leave the compound!..The way the architecture, design, color meet nature’s backdrop can’t be captured well enough on photo, it’s magical!.It’s spaced out so well that our group had plenty of personal space and individual privacy as well as a central living/lounge space to really hanging out and connect with each other. The staff was professional and friendly and the food was top notch. Beautiful vision and design in an amazing area of Sri Lanka, we can’t wait to return!
    Thanks for the amazing hospitality !

    Unique. Spectacular!

    Usually we over research every location and place we stay. Came here with kids for a couple of days on a recommendation with no expectations. Oh my, we’re we surprised.

    Felt welcomed and relaxed the moment we walked in. Spacious, inviting, airy, peaceful. Everything you want in a holiday destination. And with a truly unique design and architectural sense. Each room, each bathroom uniquely designed with thought and creativity. So much so the kids had to explore every bit first—even before jumping in the inviting infinity pool.

    And, remarkably, while just a few minutes drive from the beach it was relatively cool and refreshing without the stickiness and traffic of the beachside.

    There’s a great team running it too. We will definitely be back.

    Beautiful, Quiet and Relaxing

    The villa is beautifully designed, with bright purples and pinks on the walls which give it a vibrant, modern feel. There are gorgeous outdoor bathrooms and the decor is classy and high quality. It’s secluded and blissfully quiet and really has a homely yet luxurious feel. The pool is a really good size and very relaxing with great seating around the edge. The staff were excellent and breakfast was great. Overall an amazing place, highly recommended.

    “Stunning experience!!”

    This must be a first for Sri Lanka. A contemporary, stunning villa where the attention to detail is something I have NEVER seen before on all my travels through Sri Lanka The decor is amazing and we loved the location!! A little elevated so always nice and breeze, spectacular view over the paddy fields and tress (filled with birds in the mornings) and very close to Galle s best beaches.

    If you are looking for a villa with some wow factor to rest up in while you explore Galle and the South coast beaches you couldn’t ask for anything more amazing. Anthony the chef cooks really yummy meals and is a lovely guy too. The house had 5 big bedrooms and an enourmous open living room, bordering the large swimming pool at one side and the most divine inner garden on the other site.

    Perfect house for large groups but the owner told us he is also planning to rent by the room soon. There is plenty to do in the area but to be honest you don t really need to leave the house at all to have an amazing holiday.
