We had a fantastic week at Villa Nisala. We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children and the separate villas somewhat interconnected worked well for us. The kids absolutely loved the pool, the local beach was lovely and while the water is a bit rougher it is lovely for sitting and enjoying the view. The staff at the villa were fantastic and could not have been more helpful with food service (always delicious and they were more than happy to accommodate adult and kid preferences), arranging transport to places and even letting us know when a monkey was in the trees nearby so the kids got to see it - a highlight !
Day trip wise we did trips to mirissa beach, the elephant safari and Galle and enjoyed them all. Some of our party also visited the tea plantation and turtle sanctuary which were also great. Would highly recommend Villa Nisala.
