Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Indisch is a stately colonial villa reminiscent of days gone by. It is located in a lovely tranquil garden by the sea, offering its visitors a relaxing retreat. The villa offers guests a peek into the grandeur of the past, with its opulent collection of colonial antiques as well as more modern abstract art.
There are 5 classy and spacious bedroom suites in the Indisch villa, each with romantic vintage four poster beds, elegant furnishings and fully fitted bathrooms. Guests are assured of restful comfortable sleep. The suites also open up to private verandas where guests can take in the refreshing cool air of this tropical paradise.
Guests at Indisch Villa can look forward to an array of culinary delights. Guests can choose to take their meals in the beautiful formal dining room, on the breezy veranda, or go for a unique experience in the traditional curry hut. Choose from traditional Sri Lankan, Asian and Western cuisine, or opt for fresh seafood harvested directly from the sea. The high quality dining will certainly be a highlight for many guests.
Went there with two families, excluding myself and I must say the staff are really amazing - very attention and friendly but a tad too quick in keeping away stuff at times. I would have a half drunk glass of whiskey at my table and after I come back from the ladies, it would be gone. The stay there was good, with the unfortunate issue of the daily thunderstorm but for the price we are paying, I am amazed that the internet doesn't work on the second floor. Also, it is most unfortuntate we miss the previous review but with at least two meals, there would be desserts given to us without asking if we wanted them. In the end, they charged us for desserts per pax and for other stuff like a whole bottle of sesame oil etc. They give us fruits everyday without asking if we wanted them and charge us all for the fruits though not all of us had fruits. We didn't mind paying but at least prepare us for it or give us the option of having or not having it. We were told that it is all meals inclusive but just as I expected and warned my partner when we first arrived, it was too good to be true.
This place is amazing. It is beyond clean. The many staff spend all day making sure it is spotless and it truly is immaculate. The food is the best I have eaten on my trips to the area and the service is faultless. Over all one of the best places I have ever stayed.
I stayed at Villa Indisch in December 2014 as part of an eight-person group, and the experience was utterly terrific. The villa itself is amazing (see photos), and the beach and pool are amazing. But the real reason was the staff: these dedicated, fun, smart, detail-oriented people made our week at Villa Indisch far better than we had anticipated. First, the food: the in-house chef, Ajit, cooks up anything you'd like. His Sri Lankan food is authentic and delicious, but he's well-educated and has worked at hotels abroad, and knows how to make almost anything happen. He cooked us a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast one day, then scrambled eggs and bacon the next. Grilled lobster outside on the lawn for dinner. He whipped up homemade ice cream, and learned our favorite dishes so he could supply them regularly during the week. Every time we ate offsite, we regretted it: why didn't we just get Ajit to make us lunch? He's awesome, and his crew in the kitchen were accommodating and talented. I also can't speak highly enough of the crew in the Villa. Our stewards, Sangheet and Dedunu, tended to our every needs. Ice-cold rosé delivered poolside on a hot afternoon. Laundry whisked away and returned. Accompanied bike rides to the nearby tea plantation. And we loved that they were not wallflowers: we really got to know them, and got to have fun cultural moments, trading jokes and language tricks, seeing the personalities behind the uniforms. When they see you tipsy at night and help you to your room, and then tend to your morning-after ailments with coffee and a greasy breakfast, there's not much to hide behind. They laugh with you. You're on vacation. The rooms are impeccably clean, thoroughly swept and reset every morning when you're by the pool. There are plenty of flying and crawling critters around in the humid tropical heat, but we had zero in our bedroom. A nicely-done mosquito net around every bed helps keep the inevitable bloodsuckers at bay while you sleep. The pool is gorgeous. The beach is gorgeous. The villa decor is gorgeous. I generally tire of a place after a week, but on my eighth and final day at Villa Indisch, I wanted to stay another week. Or two. I asked the head steward, Sanjeewa, about their annual rates. In his characteristic dry humor, he responded with a wry smile, "Yes, sir, I will check with my management and inquire about a discount." I could tell a dozen stories, but I'll stop. I don't usually get this effusive in a review as it is. Villa Indisch is great for groups who want to chill by the pool. It's also well equipped for families with kids (outdoor play areas, and the staff will tend to the children all day).
We loved Indisch’s setting on a sweeping curve of coastline; the ocean panorama made all the more interesting by the waves crashing onto rocks just offshore. Indisch is incredibly spacious, and with plenty of places to enjoy privacy it’s ideal for a couple of families, friends travelling together or even for big family reunions. There’s a wide veranda to the front (with sun screens that are very effective at reducing glare without blocking the garden and sea from view) where we dined most of the time or sat quietly and read. We liked that there’s a music system built into the living areas (although it doesn’t connect with an iPod), and the TV in the study is a good distraction for kids – and us, on a rainy day. Run with the efficiency of a hotel, Indisch has a big attentive staff team and an excellent chef who dazzled us with his repertoire of dishes – Sri Lankan and international. The kitchen is principally the domain of the staff but parents needing to prepare children’s or babies’ meals are welcome to use it on request. Indisch is 30 minutes’ from Galle’s dining scene, but the villa food is so good that this doesn’t matter. This slightly away-from-it-all location might be just what many people are looking for. The villa has a vintage Mercedes which can be used to take guests on nostalgic rides through the neighbourhood (recommended), and there is also a van at the villa which can be made available to guests (charges apply). We’ve stayed in lots of villas over the years, and it’s fair to say that Indisch is one of the most immaculately presented and staffed in Sri Lanka. On our recent visit, we were impressed by how well the villa has been maintained - it still looks new, and the dedicated staff team seemed to be constantly cleaning. We visited as a big group and the excellent chef managed to pull off a spectacular dinner every night – we requested Sri Lankan food most of the time, and he managed to make every meal different. The villa’s garden has matured beautifully and forms a natural screen from the beach, ensuring privacy
We have been to this with a group of 10, this absolutely fabulous place cannot expect anything more than what has been offered. Staff is very good well behaved kept the place really clean and were always greeting with a smile. We had a nice time only thing is need to make sure if you are using the chef and having them cook the food by paying only groceries just check before you order any food and ask for grocery bill and tell them what exactly you want to eat else you can be in for a surprise seeing the grocery bill.
