Very nice place with awesome food”
If you want to enjoy sights like sigiriya, dambulla or polonnaruwa, but without the hustle - Rice villa is the place to be. Very nicely situated in a rice field, you can enjoy nature and tranquility. The owner can arrange easy transports to all the sights of the region as well as tranfer to colombo airport. THe staff is very friendly and we really felt at home; they where awesome with our kid (4 years old) and last but not least - Rice villa had hans down the best currys that we ate in Sri lanka. We stayed at many guesthouses and homestays with homecooked meals, but rice villa really had the best food.

Rice Villa - Great”
Our stay was lovely and the owner and manager both very hospitable throughout. However we had a massive hassle settling the bill at the end, having booked under the advertised info that credit cards were accepted (plus it being posted everywhere). The owner insisted on cash and it resulted in an awkward and time-consuming (2h) check out. very appropriate and peaceful rooms fully detached. food is excellent (Nalaka was our cook) and location is good. partly because it is so secluded. It is a few km west of Pollonarua off the main road. we would go back

Excellent hotel if you want a quiet out of town hotel.”
I wanted a quiet place out of a city but convenient to the ancient city of Polannaruwa. The Rice Villa was perfect. The owner was very helpful and all of the staff could not have been nicer. The setting was spectacular. The food was excellent. I highly recommend the Rice Villa. Susan Goodwin

Really good service location idyllic”
We stayed at the Rice Villa Hotel for three nights and had a simple but very pleasant bungalow with a veranda overlooking the paddy fields and from which you could watch the significant number of fruit bats flying over at dusk. The manager Dilshan (I hope I have his name right) was unbelievably helpful and diligent. He arranged us a trip to Sygyria (unmissable) using a tuktuk with a lovely driver who was the father of the owner of the hotel. Dilshan even came over to our bungalow the night before to tell us the history of Sygyria which made the trip even better. Also on offer were jungle tours and tours of the ancient city of Polonnawura. The food was very nice - eaten in the outdoor restaurant - watch out for the mosquitoes - they were as hungry as we were. Don't expect luxury toiletries or a place to hang your clothes but the location, atmosphere and service make that all irrelevant

Charming rooms in the middle of the rice fields”
Magic, fantastic view, very kind staff
It was a magic night we spent in that villa. It is basic but in line with the price. The staff (i.e. The family) organized a nice dinner in the middle of the rice field. Food was absolutely great. Great experience

Spectacular view of paddy views”
Paddy fields, nice owner, decent breakfast
The room itself is basic and the shower provides only weak hot water in the morning. However, the view from the room is spectacular given the paddy fields outside. The owner is friendly and the breadfast is decent. Good value for money.

It is all about the location and view”
The view, the food, the hotel small size
I cannot say our stay was bad. The hotel is located in a beautiful place, with view over the rice fields. However, the comfort is minimal: the bed is very small and they provided weird sheets, in an uncomfortable heavy cotton. The place is infested by mosquitos and we got a mosquito net but it was full of holes! We asked for a new one and got another one, again with holes. The staff was nice as everywhere in Sri Lanka but their level of English was not that good and which led to frustrating situation (my husband orders a tea and got a coke...). Overall though, we had a good time, but for the price there are probably better value hotels.

Beautiful place, delicious food, friendly staff
It is a very lovely place with interesting architecture (rustic style) and great view overlooking the paddy field. The landscape is well designed. The food was very delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a good time in Rice Villa. It's worth the money.
