We stayed at Laihru villa for one night as part of a trip around Sri Lanka and we wished we could have stayed for longer. The owner and his wife are wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome.

The owner was knowledgable about the area and arranged a great river safari one evening which was magical. The accommodation was good, comfortable bed and good shower. Internet access easy. Would stay again

Wonderful place to stay!”
The experience staying here for me, was my best whist travelling Srilanka. Nandena & his wife Salenga made me feel like I was part of their family, and as a lone traveller, that was so important to be welcomed. I did a few trips, as Nandena is a trained naturist guide, & was so lucky to see 3 different eagle, whilst on the river boat trip., which without him, I wouldn’t have seen. I also had scuba diving arranged for me, and did some diving with my host, which can be arranged. I was so lucky thatI was taken to the local fish market, & could be taught how to cook this at where I was staying. So interesting, Salenga is such a good teacher, she is started up a cooking class, which I would recommend, if you really want to know why they use curry leaf! I would absolutely recommend staying here, if you want a true Srilanka experience,

Just perfect”
We still are amazed. Starting with warm welcome even though we came way too early. The Host remembered our names, which was quite surprising, and nice. The room was grand and the view from the terrace just great. The bed comfy and bedding fresh and clean. Bathroom was squeaky clean, and the web strong. It was the best place of all we`ve experienced in Sri Lanka. We shall not forget cooking class, the Hostess made us, and the insanely tasty breakfasts we were offered. The Host also gave us a ride around the town., and hepled us in our errands. You almost feel like visiting your relatives there. We readily recommend Lahiru Villa. The Host and his family are the best ambassadors of the country and its culture. And we`ve learned about wild life of Sri Lanka too. Thank You. Ola and Mirek

Generous breakfast, warm treatment. The owner was very kind and sincere. He took us around Galle and even sent us to the railway upon check out without wanting to take a token from us. We felt safe staying in Lahiru. Its 2km away from the busy area so its peaceful to sleep. Would definitely recommend!

A wonderful peaceful stay with friendly helpful hosts ”
We travelled as a group of 3 couples and had a lovely time for our 4 night stay here. The hosts were so welcoming with fantastic knowledge about the area, on our final day we rose early and our host, a naturalist, took us out on the river for a wonderful bird safari - highly recommended! We ate lovely breakfasts on the terrace and had a delicious home cooked curry one evening. it was incredibly easy to zip into atmospheric Galle Fort on a Tuk tuk. The very nearby jet wing lighthouse is surprisingly reasonable for beers overlooking the crashing waves. The rooms were very comfortable and a good size. We found it to be the perfect place.

Such a cute place! Loved our stay”
This place is adorable! We could choose our room and decided to go with the top one with sea view! The room was brand new and clean. The rain shower was a cool extra. The best was the most comfy one we slept in yet. Also the hosts are super friendly and the nicest family! It‘s a bit outside of Galle but very cute and we would choose to stay there again. The wifi is ok but only on the second floor (we were on the third), so we had to go downstairs to hang on our phones ;)

Great value for money”
We stayed three nights at Lahiru Villa. It is run by the owner and his family, which were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, have a quiet AC and a private bathroom. Galle Fort is a 5min drive by tuktuk. Another plus is that the Jetwing Light House is opposite Lahiru Villa, where you can use the facilities (beach/pool) for a small fee.

The owners are really nice and helpful! They will prepare for you home made curry (yummy!!) and show you best places to buy spices and souvenirs. For those who don't have set plans, they are eager to propose cool activities - turtles preservation spot is quite interesting! And room on the top floor has got amazing view! Highly recommended!

Very friendly hotel Onwer! Feel like home during the stay here! ”
We stayed in villa from nov 13 to nov 20. The warm welcome from the hotel owner made you feel like home. We Knew that there are a lot to do in Sri Lanka. The owner is so helpful, giving us so much advices and helping us to plan our week in Galle. And he is also a professional diver who's familiar with the local sea here. So he took us to a diving center owned by one of his best friends. We had a great diving tour together around the Unawatuna area. It is one of my best diving experience. Then the next day he Drove us to the yala national park for the jeep safari where you can see a lot of wild animals including Eagles spotted deers cocodile elephants peacocks etc. So here is definitely a place you should stay in Galle. Rooms are clean with air conditioner / hot shower and the price is fair. Also the Owner is friendly and easy going. He is able to get all the activities you wanna do here well planned. Also his wife is a good cook, you must try her homemade Sri Lanka curry super yummy!!!

Great stay!”
Stayed here for three nights. Lovely owners who accomodated for any need we had! Lovely breakfast and fantastic river safari at excellent price! Even dropped us to our next hotel for a cheap rate via tuk tuk. Only issue is that if you are staying here you need to get a tuk tuk to get around galle as the walk can be abit much especially in the heat.

One of the best sunset views”
The family that runs the hotel is more than friendly. The owner's wife cooked a lovely meal for us with the seafood we bought from the market. The owner led us to the nearby beach to witness one of the most beautiful sunset. We stayed here only for one night but could have easily spent more time with this very warm family.

If you happen to travel to Galle this is the place to stay! The owner caters for all your wishes extremely knowledgeable regarding history and heritage paired with first class hospitality. The hotel offers some great tour packages at a reasonable price such as Safari at Yala National Park, cooking lessons, whale watching excursions or snorkeling. Thank you Nandana for going out of your way taking us around from Galle to Colombo via Nuwera Eliya and Kandy!a

a very pleasant stay”
helpful informative host
As I had injured my foot prior to our arrival, they very kindly changed our room to a ground floor room so that it was easier to manage, all done within 10 minutes of our arrival.. R ahsuri took my husband on a river trip to photgraph the local wildlife and was a very informative guide. Had a basic cooking lesson in Sri Lankan cooking and ate the dinner with some other guests which was very enjoyable. They plan to expand on the cooking lessons. A young couple that are very receptive to suggestions to improve their services as time and money permit and deserve to make a go of ther buisness as vey keen that their guests get the maximum from their stay. Best bread that we tasted in the whole of our stay in Sri Lanka and good variety of breakfast every day. . easy to get a Tuk tuk into Galle and nicer to stay a little way out rather than in the fort itself. A special thak you to Kamal the tuk tuk driver who returned to the villa with our change after we had paid him far to much in the dark when we returned late after dinner in Galle one evening.
