The villa is even better than its website promises...It's best to book the whole villa with a large group of family and friends, the price is very reasonable.

Tropical getaway at the south coast in Galle

The Old Lady at the Indian Ocean is the place to be if you want to relax, enjoy and get away from it all.
Staying there with your children, family, friends and discretely surrounded by friendly and professional staff will give you the impression of being in a completely different world.

I am so glad I managed to discover your property online and truly it was a holiday of a lifetime.
Every aspect of our stay was perfect. The rooms, the location of the property, the food and above all the service.

Unique cuisine concept

You can buy all food and drinks at the local market, shop or supermarket. All food and drinks you can buy yourself and all meals will be prepared to you taste , and served by the staff for free.

Cooking was outstanding – the meals we had were all fabulous. We attempted one meal out, but was nothing in comparison to the meals we had at the villa, and so decided to stay in for the rest of the holiday!
