Virgin Holidays View
Set in 3 acres of tropical gardens with extensive lily ponds and easy access to a glorious stretch of beach, Reef Villas & Spa is undoubtedly one of Sri Lanka’s most luxurious residences. Palatial suites with four-poster 7' long canopied beds, soaring ceilings and beautifully crafted furniture will delight, ensuring your utmost comfort from the moment you arrive until you bid a reluctant farewell. All are named after the famed water flowers of Sri Lanka with private furnished verandas on which to sit and admire your stunning surrounds. A host of facilities include a beautiful infinity-edged swimming pool to lounge by, a yoga pavilion and a tennis pavilion. There’s also the tranquil Reefresh Spa offering so many tempting treatments you’ll wish you’d booked for at least another week! Opt for a detoxifying clay cocoon or an herbal salt scrub. Alternatively, relax in the secluded outdoor bath scattered with fragrant frangipani petals – sheer bliss! For those intent on active pursuits, Bentota is approximately 25 minutes away and perfect for water sports. The water is warm and clear with diving particularly rewarding from mid-November to the end of March. Cycling is also popular so hire a bike and explore narrow lanes bordered by lush green paddy fields and swaying coconut trees. The main restaurant serves delicious international and local la carte dishes which can be eaten al-fresco by the pool. The bar is also well-stocked and perfect for lingering in with a cocktail whilst marvelling at dramatic sun sets.
