We loved our stay at Ceylon Olive. Kumudu & Era could not have done more for us during our stay, even when I had made a mistake about booking the wrong room; they quickly helped us move to another. They helped us book excursions and recommendations on where to eat or visit. We would love to come back and visit in the future! Thank you for making our first trip to Sri Lanka so special!

8/10 Very Good

Ceylon Olive, Galle was a secluded place and the room spacious and the shower area was very creative with a different experience. The garden had a lovely green foliage surrounded by trees and local flowers.The owner was very helpful and we stayed in the premises to have dinner there. We enjoyed the delicious food prepared and the following morning we had to leave early and the owner prepared us a local bread with coconut and onion chutney to takeaway for our sperm and dolphin trip.It was amazing the food and we felt it had a personal touch that made our stay a memorable one. Thank you again. The only thing we were concern we had a couple of mosquitoes in the room. Otherwise, we highly recommend this place to stay..

Nice tuck away villa in Galle
We had a fantastic stay at Ceylon Olive. Enjoyed the greenery, natural and relaxed setting with outdoor patio that is perfect place for breakfast and afternoon tea. What makes it special is the owner’s personal attention to make the stay comfortable for his guests. The guest room has all necessities and comes with delicious breakfast - we also liked authentic Sri Lankan dinner made to our dietary needs.

excellent villa with great design and service!
excellent hotel villa, a surprise and highlight of our trip to sri lanka. it's located a distance from the city centre which but only gives a nice feeling rather than inconnvienence. only two villas in a lovely garden where you can find peace with trees, flowers, birds, monkeys and squirrels. the design of the house is one of its highlights, which mixes traditional factors and decors with simplicity and contemporary materials, such as cement. the bath room in the back of the room in half open air is a brilliant idea - imagine you bathe under the starry sky. it is run by the owner and his family, and service and breakfast are excellent, very friendly but also professional. it values more than its price!
