Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
It’s love at first stay - prepare to fall for the incredible JH Villa. A former Portuguese colonial estate, the villa occupies a stunning hilltop location with views out to the Indian Ocean. Containing generously proportioned living spaces and suites, a sprawling garden and a full range of modern amenities, JH Villa is ideally kitted out for groups of 12. As a full-service property, guests will enjoy impeccable 24/7 service throughout their stay.
12 guests are comfortably accommodated in six bedrooms. Grand and impeccably furnished, it is fitting that each suite is named after a gemstone.
Both the Ruby and Emerald suites are outfitted with a four poster canopy bed and sun-soaked verandah. Each suite sleeps two guests.
The Amethyst suite features a verandah, side patio and two single beds (it can be converted into a king bed at your request). The suite accommodates two guests.
The Topaz Suite comes fitted with a king bed, walk-in closet, en suite bathroom, living area with kitchen and built-in dining table and a verandah. The suite sleeps two guests.
Both the Jade and Sapphire suites sleep three guests. Each suite features a four poster canopy bed, a convertible sofa bed and a capacious verandah.
Spread out across three acres, the garden at JH Villa is a lush oasis; the grounds are immaculately maintained, abundant with tropical foliage and stretch out towards the sands of a coral beach (it’s just a 5-minute stroll away from the villa). The focal point here is a sparkling 15-metre infinity pool flanked by sun umbrellas, recliners and pavilions; with views out to an emerald landscape and striking sunsets, it’s unsurprising that this stands out as a favourite among guests at JH Villa.
An open-air pavilion serves as the perfect venue for meditation, yoga or a candle-lit al fresco dinner. Guests will also enjoy access to a private beach house. Perched alongside the coast, the beach house features a spacious sitting area, verandah overlooking the Indian OCean, kitchen, bathroom, outdoor shower and lawn.
JH Villa’s wonderfully appointed living spaces ooze an air of grandeur; the beautifully carved pillars, intricate wooden fixtures and elegant furnishings reveal that much attention has been paid to the details in the process of decorating the home. The lofty, vaulted ceilings add on to the sense of spaciousness within, and large windows allow sunlight to cascade in, creating interiors that are bright and airy.
You’ll enjoy cooking up a storm in an air-conditioned kitchen equipped with state of the art appliances, like a double fridge, freezer, wine cooler, professional oven, 6-burner cooker and more - or leave the cooking to your in-villa chef. A fully equipped laundry room serves the needs of all guests.
As expected of a luxury property, JH Villa offers a full range of services and amenities - so you’ll never be left wanting for more throughout your stay. A villa manager offers ready assistance to your vacation needs, and you’ll also enjoy the services of an in-villa chef, housekeeping team and security staff. Other services included with your stay are: daily breakfasts, welcome drink upon arrival and access to beach house. A cot and high chair will be provided at request.
Services available at additional cost include: airport transfers, daily transportation, laundry services, set menu for lunch or dinner and an à la carte all-day dining menu. Do note that dishes not listed in the menu may be prepared at your request, subject to the availability of ingredients.
Located just 15 minutes’ drive from Galle, JH Villa puts vacationers within easy reach to a variety of local attractions and amenities.
A must-visit is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Galle Fort; dating back to 1588, the fortified town boasts charming streets lined with stunning Dutch colonial buildings and
Churches. You’ll also enjoy exploring its myriad restaurants, cafes, boutiques and galleries.
About 10 minutes’ drive away lies the coastal town of Unawatuna. Its crescent-shaped beach is popular with vacationers; there’s plenty of seafood feasting, along with excellent swimming, scuba diving and snorkelling to be enjoyed.
While there are numerous tea plantations across the island, Handunugoda Tea Estate is one that stands out with its comprehensive tea tasting sessions and well-guided tours. It’s located about 25 minutes’ drive from your villa.
Other well-sought-after activities in the region include turtle hatchery visits and whale watching tours. The Sea Turtle Farm & Hatchery at Habaraduwa (three minutes’ drive) and Mirissa Harbour (40 minutes’ drive) are venues where you can participate in these activities.
We had such a great 5 night stay at the villa. We were 4 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of room to spare! (Literally 2 spare rooms) The villa itself is beautiful and well appointed and all of the bedrooms are stylish and comfortable with lovely en suites. Mr Warne and his team are eager to please - a super friendly environment with good service and lovely food. The Sri Lankan curries were incredible! The villa is a 10 minute walk to the beach where there is a small beach house and a swimmable area of beach, but not a major beach at all...just somewhere to go for a dip. Not far by tuktuk to a larger better beach (Dalawella beach is about 10 mins away and has safe swimming and a couple of places to eat - turtles come in behind the reef most days and you can swim with them which is awesome) The villa is surrounded by jungle and you get a feeling of seclusion and privacy which is nice. Loads of monkeys and monitor lizards lurking in the beautiful and extremely well kept gardens - our 4 year old loved all the nature! Great and sizeable swimming pool which we all loved. All in all we had a fantastic stay. Only consideration is the Mosquitos - there is a lovely pond in the inner courtyard which is a bit of a draw for mossies. Don't hesitate to book this villa as it's lovely and luxurious, but load up on the anti mosquito spray! Food is extra but worth working out how you're going to eat when you get there so you know where you stand. Personally I would prefer the cooking to be included as we only went out for dinner once and most of the other villas seem to work on a full board basis. Not a deal breaker, just something to think about. Thank you to everyone at the JH Villa for our wonderful stay - we wouldn't hesitate to visit again x
