Beach Villa - perfect pool - great garden - superb staff. PURE PARADISE!



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Villa in Gintota, close to Galle. Very tasteful & comfortable, with peaceful beach

Totally renovated asian art deco villa with original features. Stylish, charming, comfortable. Breakfast with views of the Indian Ocean. Our talented cook Pushpa can prepare lunch and/or dinner too if you like. No problem at all: you just give some money so staff can go to the shop and afterwards you get receipts and your change. Comfortable mahogany sunbeds. Sound system for Ipod, Iphone and laptop. Wifi. Dvd player and tv. Hammocks in the garden, for complete relaxation. If you require a soothing massage or a yoga session in the garden: no problem.

Our driver is available for transport from and to the airport, and for any other trips you require. A boat trip on the nearby river, whale watching, snake farm, etc... Lots of restaurants nearby. Our staff can arrange everything for you, they are amazing!

Villa Golden offers you everything you desire (and much more) to have the most wonderful holiday!

About the Owner

My name is Bart. I am Belgian and live in Brussels. I first visited Sri Lanka in 1986, and immediately fell in love with this beautiful, magical country and its inhabitants. Since then I travelled to quite a lot of other exotic countries, and I know now: Sri Lanka is the best, in every possible way! A few years ago I managed to buy a beach villa near Galle and had it renovated. It's a real gem! I go there 3 times a year and I just LOVE to be there. And the staff have almost become like family. They are so devoted. I hope you will enjoy and love Villa Golden as much as I do. But I'm quite sure you will.

Guestbook comments from the owner


It's starts with an easy pick up from the airport, their driver waiting for you with a big smile. No hassle finding your way etc... You arrive at the villa, where the staff is waiting for you. Nicely decorated, 3 bedrooms, all the space in the world. You go to the patio, where you discover a HUGE garden, looking out on the beach, which is so quiet!

Whatever I needed, it was taken care of. Just tell the cook, whatever you feel like eating, WHEN you want it and take the toughest decision of the day: Should we have breakfast at the beach? Or on the patio?


I have never had such an amazing holiday experience in my life! Stayed over Christmas with my wife and 4 year old daughter and loved it more than I could ever put into words. Beautiful villa, unbelievable garden right on the beach. The staff are the best I have ever known. Basically it was an overwhelmingly amazing time. We will be back!

Whaley Bridge

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Villa, it's lovely garden, pool and access to the beach cannot be faulted. However, it's the staff that really make a difference. They add a sprinkling of magic dust. They have the balance just right. Attentive but not intrusive. Always smiling and Pushpha's food is amazing.

The Villa is spacious and has comfortable beds. It is rustic and for me the bathrooms are quite dark but this seems to be the typical Sri Lanka style. The water pressure in the electric shower is rather slow and it would have been great to have access to a washing machine but now I'm being picky. We have only just returned and I'm looking at flights again for next year as it has been one of the best holidays.

The Villa is next to a busy road but it's hardly noticeable as the sound of the ocean waves right on your doorstep drown out any road noise. Galle is 10 mins away in the Tuk Tuk. It's great fun and it's easy to find your way around.There is a little beach bar about 5 mins walk on the beach that serve snacks n drinks and it's a good spot to stop and chat. The beach is really quiet just you and the local fishermen who are very friendly. We had planned to do more trips out and about but we just loved being spoilt in the Villa. It was hard to leave.

If this is your first time to Sri Lanka then this Villa and the staff will make you fall in love with the place. We are looking at flights again for next year.

Thank you all for a wonderful time!

From the Owner

Villa Golden is Asian art deco, and has lots of charm. The garden is very large, and it ends right at the beach which is so peaceful. Almost no tourists. It's so private and calm. But on the other hand: in a few minutes you are in Galle, with it's world famous Dutch Fort. And - in opposite direction - in fifteen minutes you are in busy Hikkaduwa with its fabulous reefs. The place to be if you like surfing, snorkeling or diving. Villa Golden offers you everything to have the best holiday!
