What people say about us
We have made happy customers all over the world and this is what our customers have to say about us.
We stayed at the Well House in Unawatuna for 9 nights. It is a very stylish colonial villa with a beautiful garden and very close to Unawatuna and Galle Fort. We were greeted by Mark at check in, who shared lots of great local recommendations. The chef Dimuthu and also staff led by Sudath looked after us really well. We had some amazing meals! We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Well House to anyone!

Mark worked for us for many years and I always knew that one day he would set up his own company. A very bright, dedicated and hard-working individual, Mark is extremely capable and never hesitates to go the extra mile. His attention to detail and also his understanding regarding what guests might want, is also impressive. He has always been absolutely honest and reliable, and I have no hesitation in recommending him. I am sure that his enthusiasm, care and dedication will bring him great success. I wish him the very best.

“Mark’s a lovely person to chat with. He greeted us warmly, and sent us off as well. Excellent communicator, and useful with tips! The house is even better live than in pictures. In order to get to the house you need to walk on a path through a beautiful garden. The villa will be right in front of you, and the jungle is right behind it. The house is beautiful, with three comfortable and clean rooms, and multiple lounging areas as well as a dining area. Dimuthu, the head chef, would prepare delicious meals for us upon our requests, as well as his own recommendations. His food was exquisite! We barely had to dine out. The house is so well kept, as there are a few people that ensure it. The pool is cozy and clean, and the beach is a minute away, but we were unlucky as it was monsoon season and the water was dirty. The location is also great, 2 minutes away from jungle beach, 5 minutes away by tuktuk to Unawatuna Beach, and 10 minutes away to Galle Fort depending on traffic. You could also walk, but it’s sort of a main road, so it’s a bit tricky. I can’t wait to come back again!”
Mark has managed my villa in Galle Fort for over 6 years at a level of professionalism that is rare to find. So, when he set up Colonial Villas in Sri Lanka (CVS) I did not have a moment's hesitation following him. I live overseas and have to rely on a management company to run the day to day operations of my villa. I set high standards and expect 100% great reviews from my guests. The reputation of my brand depends on over-delivering on the expectations of our guests. Mark and now CVS continues to deliver for me. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and efficiency in managing the property in the areas of maintenance, staff training, housekeeping, accounting, and customer relations continue to be outstanding. The positive feedback I continually receive from our customers is a testament to this. I am delighted to recommend CVS!
