After a long journey, we landed to hot tropical thunderstorm. Greeted by a friendly driver we were safely transported to what seemed like heaven. This was confirmed when the sun came up the following morning. Waking to a fruit platter and cappuccino. Elephant palace and its wonderful staff were therapy for all of us. Run, yoga and and loads and loads of swimming and surfing. Some fun tuk tuk rides to plantations and temples and shops. My boys were in heaven. At 7 and 4 and of corse hubby, not to mention myself, there was something for all of us. Thanks you Lara and Rob. I still meditate with the view in my minds eye. Xxx

Elephant Palace – is a dream holiday in Sri Lanka. Located right on the most beautiful clean sandy beach, it gives both privacy, and the easy access to places of interest - if you choose to! We often found so spoiled by the tranquility of the villa, that we would rather stay there and fully enjoy the experience. Very child friendly, it’s got a lovely pool cleverly designed for both kids and adults. Ample living area provides lots of space and air for everyone to chill out. Impeccable service from the houseboys and the cook made us feel welcome and spoiled. We definitely would come back to enjoy it again.

We had a fabulous time here in the EP and hate to leave. We will be telling all our friends about your fantastic place and Danushka and Sampath. They were a great help and did their jobs very well. We feel very spoiled and our stomachs are full of good food. We have no complaints at all, just great things to say. Hopefully we can come back again and enjoy a longer stay, now that we know where to go! With much appreciation,

We had the privilege of being the first to rent Elephant Palace and it was sheer pleasure. With more than 30 years in the travel business it's a welcome surprise to find something that's better than described. We thoroughly recommend it.

The villa fronts on to the loveliest beach we saw in Sri Lanka and one which is both swimmable and surfable. The house staff were delightful and attentive and we loved the design and light of the home. A fantastic place for our family Christmas in 2013.
