Fantastic stay!
The team at VUD we’re amazing and went above expectations! They surprised my partner with room lights and decorations plus cake for his birthday just from noting his date of birth for checkin! It was so appreciated and unexpected! The room was huge and had everything we needed. It’s located a short walk for Galle Fort. The breakfasts were also delicious! Thanks VUD team for your kindness and lovely service. We highly recommend staying at VUD!!

10/10 Exceptional

I had the best time staying here. There was something about the open plan space that made me feel so comfortable. There was beautiful music playing throughout the villa and fragrant incense which just added to the awesome feel of this place. The staff were AMAZING! So friendly, so considerate and went out of their way to help and make sure I had a perfect stay. The pool and outside deck are wonderful, the rooms are huge, clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I planned only to stay one night but ended up staying 4 because it was just too good here. I will be coming back for sure.

2/10 Poor

worst hotel ever!!
worst hotel experience ever. they don't tell you anything there and I went out for some drinks only to return at night and they locked the gate to the building and the door to the Villa. I had to climb over gate. bang on the door until another guest opened the door for me and he wasn't happy about it. don't blame him. no staff anywhere. and the key to my door didn't work. I ended up sleeping on a couch. while trying to get my door open the key broke and I ended up arguing with the Manger next day and he made me pay for the key. it was either that or fight the guy which he was about to call the police as well do not stay at this hotel ever!!!

2/10 Poor

Very very disappointing!
Extremely disappointing!! We were more than happy to leave after less than 24 hours at this hotel. Would not recommend others to stay there. Just to mention a few things: dirty, smelly room no wifi (in spite of the manager telling us that there was) breakfast was re-used from a different table. Really disgusting to have old butter and toast that had already been served for someone else who knows how long ago

Nice location
We required a one night stay and this hotel was adequate for a brief stopover. Breakfast ( included) was standard fruit and eggs. Quite okay.
