What an amazing stay at the Why House and Villa 23 Palm !!! THANK YOU Villa-Bali.com !!!! My booking was the perfect combination between the jungle at Why and the front sea at 23 Palm..The all team there are doing their best to make your stay a dream come true...After traveling around ASIA during the past 20 years, i have never experienced such an heaven; Fantastic food, great rooms, top services.. and also Wijaya Beach with great snorkeling, Paddy field bike tour, great visit in Galle and a cruise on Kogolla lac are highly recommended. I cannot wait to go back.
The wonderful photos of this property can never prepare you for the understated luxury that awaits you. The staff are amazing, so friendly and attentive, they are always there when you need them and never intrusive. Sanath and his team are the best!!! We were looking for a relaxing holiday with friends, the team ensured every minute was memorable and catered for all our needs well above any expectations we had. We were incredibly lucky to meet the owners and hear of their visions for the future and their excitement for Sri Lanka We had such a fabulous time we are booked again for this year and planning another visit in 2016.
From the moment you arrive your in pure luxury. The grounds are stunning and house is absolutely beautiful inside. The staff is top notch, not over bearing. They own a local hotel called Why House and the manager Henrietta is just the best. The food comes from their chef at Why House and it was very good quality, the menu each day is tailored to your needs. The Villa came with a doggie named Ginger, we love dogs. The pool is beautiful and very clean. There is not the best internet at the house, so you can do work, oh well.
We were booked into 23 Palms for two nights. Four of us had been on a fairly intensive tour of the highlights of Sri Lanka and were in severe need of some chill time - which we certainly received. We arrived after a long drive from the hill country, and were greeted with ice cold lime sodas, exactly what was needed, although I did follow it up with an ice cold Lion beer. The staff were unobtrusive but had the knack of being present whenever we needed anything, sometimes even before we knew we needed it!. The two main bedrooms are huge with enormous beds, and had all that we could require. The food was delicious - Sri Lankan curry and rice on the first night, and a Japanese selection on the second night. The breakfasts served on the verandah were far more than adequate, and also very tasty. We were left alone (apart from the security staff) later in the evening, but were shown where to find the beer and wine. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep, and the sea views in the morning are spectacular. The pool is delightful. I guess this must be what it feels like to be royalty and have your every whim catered to.
We stayed here for a week. Those used to 5 star hotels will be upset .... With the 5 star hotels. The service was second to none, they literally read our minds and offered food and drinks. The view is incredible and having run up and down the beach I can safely say this it the best villa around by a long way. Whilst the shore is rocky the swimming pool is large so you can swim if you don't feel like going in the ocean. Food wise... Equally amazing... And cheap as we were only charged for the ingredients. In all... This is underpriced and while not cheap it's probably the best value for money around. Giving a tip was actually a pleasure as it was well deserved. *** hopefully the new owner will maintain this property as it is, it is a unique gem.
Palm 23 is without doubt a place to getaway from it all. Located 20min from Galle (by tuk tuk) it occupies 2 acres of prime real estate facing the Indian Ocean. Set amongst palm trees (naturally) the colonial style villa takes one back to another time! I can only agree with comments in previous reviews, especially the pool (salt water / 30 ft from the ocean), the staff, the food (you gotta try the ash bananas and fish curries) and the fact it has no tv - really there is no need for one. You won't go wrong with this place. Thx Jack and Sri Lanka in Style!
