Hard to know what to say to give justice to this beautiful house and garden and lovely helpful and discreet staff!! Thank you so much too for the most delicious meals. It is very hard to leave Ocean’s Edge but hoping will return one day. Where to start. We arrived with 4 kids under 3 (one only 11 weeks old) and settled in for an incredible two weeks here. Staff couldn’t have done more to accommodate our many different requests. Food delicious throughout and the house, garden and beach were just superb. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

We spent four days here. Although short, but impressive. Here we spend the Chinese New Year. Here we feel the charming scenery, here we eat authentic food of Sri Lanka, here we feel warm and hospitable of the staff. We are a family of eight, everyone of us is happy. I hope to come back again.

A wonderful place to see in the New Year! We have all enjoyed a great family time making full use of the pool, the garden & the beach. The staff have been outstanding – always polite, helpful and informative. The food was a real delight – when we get home we are all on strict diets! We enjoyed the cooking lessons and the tour of the garden. Excellent! Thanks to the staff at Ocean’s Edge for making our stay so special.

What a magical place! We have loved every moment - by the beach, in the pool, eating fantastic curry in the house, seeing a turtle lay her eggs on the beach and visit rock temples. Pure bliss.

We had a fabulous stay in this beautiful villa. It has been a very peaceful stay even with three young sons (8,6 & 6) who have loved the wildlife here, the food, the pool and especially playing cricket with "the Uncles." We went walking around the garden and saw peacocks, cranes, various other birds and and the adorable puppies from next door. Thamal and his team have all been amazing and chefs food is delicious, especially the pineapple curry, fish curry & Sri Lankan breakfasts. Thank you for a delightful stay and as we say in Hong "Kung Hai Fat Choi." - all the best for you all in the year of the monkey.

We were here to celebrate our dear friends birthday. Moving from Galle Fort to Ocean's Edge was such a treat, from the hustle and bustle of Galle Fort to the magnificent Indian Ocean where beautiful coconut trees and beautiful beaches with the pounding of waves made this a surreal experience. Thanks to Thamal and his team. Loved Sri Lanka food particularly the poppadoms. Our holiday was made by the champagne which we manage to get on the way here for our sunset drinks. A most unspoiled and gorgeous place. Thank you.

We had the luxurious pleasure to stay at Ocean's Edge for almost a week. Watching whales in the sunrise, enjoying the awesome wildlife in the area as well as the local hospitality has made this stay an almost dreamy, film life experience. We will surely miss everything this place has to offer, the food, the beach, the staff, the pool, the monkeys, the extraordinary beautiful view, the sound of the waves and of course the incredibly charming house. It has been a peerless and delightful stay which we will never forget. We hope to come back.

We've been enjoying life at Ocean's Edge for a few days now. We have to leave tomorrow :( All the staff have been wonderful and accommodating. Our cooking lesson was fun. For the foolish two that decided to go on a romantic stroll up the beach instead of learning a couple of local recipes and techniques - we will hold the secret ingredients back. Just kidding. We will share with them. Obviously one can't complain about the wonderful beach out front. The villa is also large enough that we could all enjoy privacy. We could have melted with the pool!! Shockingly warm weather. We brought in the new year on the beach with a fire. Great fun. There might have been a couple of fireworks too. All possible mess cleaned up, so it will remain only a rumour. To guests have fun and enjoy the secluded area. Do have the eggplant curry!!

We had a great stay. Thamel and the team could NOT have been more lovely - attentive, kind, made the children feel totally welcome. The food was delicious, and it was a fantastic place to spend Christmas! The beach is gorgeous and the pool was lovely. We spent hours in them both. A huge thanks to the staff. They made our stay so wonderful! We are so grateful for their kindness and attention! The BBQ was fantastic. The bird life was extraordinary and loved walking and seeing the beach and birds.

Our stay at Oceans Edge was a truly amazing experience. The villa is exquisite and the staff exceptional in attending to our needs. Whilst the location is a little remote it was great to walk along a very long stretch of beach and hardly see anyone. As we had a driver we could still visit different villages, beaches along the coast and go turtle watching. It also allowed us to truly relax after travelling around Sri Lanka for the previous 10 days.

Absolutely perfect and staff was a pure miracle. We had the best 10 days of the year. If a bad point had to be said it is the 4 to 5 hours car transfer from Colombo airport... very long. I recommend Helicopter (but they don't fly after 5PM).
