We ended a two week holiday in SL with a few nights at fantastic Villa Sunbird. The architecture of the villa(s), the art, furniture and textiles were beautiful! Close to the airport and a good place to begin or end a visit. Very attentive staff and the food excellent! Nice walks along the beach watching fishermen at work, some bird spotting as well as a trip to the fish market and local churches (but mainly drinking tea and reading books).
We stayed here (two families/ 5 kids) at the end of a three week trip and absolutely loved it! A beautiful house with loads of open space and tasteful interior. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and supportive with all our needs and requests. It was a home from home! There is a sweet small plunge pool perfect for our kids and enough for us to cool down in. The beauty of the place is really that its in a village and its a working beach. There are hardly any tourists and there is a lovely vibe when you walk at sunset along the beach and back through the village with every day life going on around. A lovely last Sri lankan experience. Thank you.
