to feel space, tranquility and nature...
“We stayed as a couple for 5 nights in this charming property. When we arrived we were more than overwhelmed by the beauty of this property. The location is just outside of Galle, in the middle of a tropical garden with a variety of animals, plant fruits and spices. It was a pleasure for us to walk through the garden with Dinesh and Sumudu and to admire the biodiversity. The accommodation is many times more beautiful than in the photos. The private pool is wonderfully cool (the pool is actually on the roof). The room had an air conditioning system, but we hardly used it because the temperature was very pleasant. Dinesh is a superhost who really organizes everything, transfer from the airport to Katagerama, Tuck Tuck everywhere in the vicinity, to the beach .... The breakfast was sensationally delicious and every day there was something different ... delicious, Dinesh tried very hard to serve us something different for dinner ... there was absolutely nothing that could have been better .. many thanks for that wonderful days with you .. with kind regards Angelika and Klaus”
to feel space, tranquility and nature... Very Spacious suite with a private plunge pool and modern comforts where time stands still as you enjoy the space nature and tranquillity in this very old Dutch colonial villa.
“Get ready to reach paradise. The accommodation is a gem hidden in the most beautiful green jungle with the sounds a birds, monkeys and squirrels. And yet, only 10min drive by tuktuk or bus to Galle. The room is extremely well and beautifully decorated. The pictures on the accommodation are beautiful but the reality is much better. The bed is comfortable and lovely dressed with beautiful white linen. The bathroom well equipped, and the fresh plunge pool was calling for us after a long warm day. There is a little fridge with ice cold water, small candlelights to enjoy the evenings on the terrace. Local breakfast served on the terraces by smiley and friendly staff. Lovely and interesting discussion with Dinesh and Sumudu. Extremely nice and helpful hosts. They really went beyond a hosts normal and expected attributions with food, guidance and assistance in any way. Our stay here, was definitely the best in Sri Lanka as being so authentic and so charming.”
* Note: Cassia Hill has implemented the full COVID-19 health & safety protocols from the Sri Lanka Tourist Board, and has successfully passed the SLTB inspection and audit. * Cassia Hill is a grand colonial villa with modern luxuries on a secluded hillside with sweeping views, 8 minutes from the coast. Sumptuously appointed, the villa is fully staffed to serve you. A peaceful haven free of the coastal railway noise of beachside villas, but close enough to enjoy all that Sri Lanka has to offer!
“We were recommended Cassia Hill from a few friends that had stayed there a few years ago. They couldn’t speak more highly about the property and the location so we thought we would book it for a small weekend getaway. We were not disappointed. From Colombo, it was an easy drive (even with Friday evening traffic) and took us under 2 hours. The Google Maps pin was accurate and the property was well signed. Some of our party had arrived a little earlier and had already been enjoying the facilities and the service. Even though they staff were busy attending, we were greeted by Manoj and another staff member who promptly collected our luggage and showed us to our rooms. They explained that dinner would be ready as per my order that I had made the day before and that breakfast had also been organised for the next morning. Like all our meals which we ate in the villa, dinner arrived on time and piping hot. We ate Sri Lankan for all our meals. It was good quality and never lacked for quantity either. Chef Silva did an excellent job, a result of working at high class hotels like Amangalla. The bedrooms were all spotless as well as more than comfortable. They were all large and most had their own bathrooms. All were beautifully decorated like the rest of the house. The features we loved the most about the property were the lovely gardens, beautiful high ceilings and the amazing outdoor entertaining area which resides around the beautiful infinity pool. This looks out over an amazing jungle view which makes you think that you almost have the whole hillside to yourself. All in all, it was an amazing stay. So good, in fact, that we decided to extend our stay by another night. That says a lot about this property! I would have no issues recommending Cassia Hill as a property or our hosts LeeAnn and Pete to anyone as it really was a dream stay in a well managed property. Highly recommended!”
