SriLankaInStyle recommends Rock Villa, Sri Villas, The Ark, Villa Maggona, Villa Republic and Villa Saffron and Blue.
Fitted with 4 bedrooms, Villa Maggona can accommodate a total of 8 guests. The villa was once a local beach bungalow, though its originality has been preserved within the modern refurbishment. It’s only booked as a whole, to retain exclusivity.

Villa Republic consists of 5 rooms, one of which is a Deluxe Master Suite. Intriguingly, the rest of the 4 rooms at the villa have unique themes, whilst all of the rooms have en-suite bathrooms, and present gorgeous views of the river beyond. The kitchen even has a 1940s retro theme.
