“Beautiful Villa Barbara”

I have recently stayed at this residence with my girlfriend, mother and sister. From the minute we arrived, we were blown away by the natural beauty of the grounds that the villa is situated on and also the lagoon which the property backs on to.

Pathum (property manager) and "Uncle" (groundskeeper) were always on hand to ensure our stay was as carefree as possible. These two gentlemen ensured that everything that we required and every service we asked for was met. Nothing we asked for was too hard or too inconvenient for them to undertake.

The bonus for our stay was a spectacular 3 hour boat ride along the lagoon and surrounding mangroves, which the owner, Upul Gomes, organised for us. It really allowed us to witness the local fisherman at work and also to take in the gorgeous vistas looking towards the mainland that we otherwise would have missed.

Leaving the property for the next part of our journey was quite difficult as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Barbara - Pathum, "Uncle", the food, the people, the property and the landscape are all things that we will sorely miss.

We will definitely be returning to this property again in the not too distant future.
