The Old Lady at the Sea

The Old Lady at the Sea

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

The Old Lady at the Sea offers excellent value for money, especially when filled to its full capacity of 20 guests. The villa is also very well situated – right beside the sea and only a short drive to both Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna beaches, as well as Galle’s famous fort.

Despite touches of modernity in the form of terrazzo floors, air conditioning and TVs/DVD players, we thought that the ‘Old Lady’ felt more old-fashioned than fashionably colonial. It is, however, kept spick and span by the friendly staff who are led by a manager who made every effort to help and please.  The female staff and the manager share the cooking, and each has their own speciality dish. Guests may also self-cater as and when they wish.

We also noticed that bedrooms and bathrooms in the ‘Old Lady’ were a little smaller and darker than the ‘Young Lady’s’ rooms, which opened straight onto the pool and garden. For in-villa entertainment there’s a good stock of DVDs and CDs, as well as five iPod docks, and for things to do beyond the villa there are a number of restaurants, shops, activities and beaches within a 15-minute drive.

Old Palm House

Old Palm House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

Old Palm House is easily one of the best inland properties near Galle. Perched on a hilltop with views out over a leafy valley, it’s tropical, tranquil and one of my favourite places to stay. This hidden oasis offers the best of both worlds – easy accessibility to the beach (five minutes’ drive) and the opportunity to experience life (and explore) inland. The house is designed very much for succumbing to the easy, relaxed pace of life of the tropics. Polished cement floors keep you cool underfoot and oversized sofas are a delight to melt into. Being open on three sides, the dining area to the front of the house is light and airy, and makes a lovely venue for a meal, by day or night. Housekeeper Chinteka whips up a mean cocktail or two and kept us very well fed - you can ask him for just about anything. The other staff members were always enthusiastic, smiling and eager to please. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Although this is a four-bedroomed house, one of the rooms (the single) is very small and best suited to a child or a nanny. The master bedroom definitely overshadows the others in size and outlook, so you may have to draw straws for it; but for one family, the villa layout is superb – and the pool’s shallow lounging shelf is ideal for little paddlers.
