About Sonali

As the owner of the properties, I ensure that every villa is clean, spotless and well maintained.

Once the booking is confirmed, a detailed newsletter is sent to the guests outlining all relevant information.

Guests too can respond with their special requirements including any special occasion they would want to celebrate.

We can arrange the airport pick-up and we ensure the smooth arrival and departure of our guests.

On arrival at the villa, the manager and staff will welcome our guests.

I oversee the smooth running of the day to day operations, and I am contactable over the phone 24/7.

2 doctors are available to make house calls. Hospitals available in Galle. In case of an emergency, I will be there to assist our guests to channel doctors and check into hospital.

It is very important to me that our guests have a memorable stay at our villas - just let us know what you want.

Why Sonali chose Galle

The chalet is a part of South Point Villas, luxury beach villas.

Staying at our villas would be like living in your own private beach holiday home.

We provide a personalised butler service to our guests from airport pick-up to the villa and until the airport drop off.

The staff rise early, and will be at your service to brew your morning tea or coffee. They wind up for the day only after the last guest has retired for the night.

The villas and the pools are cleaned twice a day. The beach too is swept and tidied.

The chalet is ideal for families with children, couples who want to be undisturbed, and our staff are very good with children.

Guests will have the privacy they seek.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is reasonably priced, very well maintained and an excellent service provided by our team of staff.

The garden is well maintained.

The chalet is walking distance to the beach, is quite and has a homely atmosphere.

Perect Ambience , Perfect Staff

  • 5 of 5

To start with I was devastated to know I booked my flights during the low season and showed to Srilanka with very low expectations . I was totally wrong even during the low season the weather was very very nice , hot with abit of rain every now and then . Plus the crew in (The Chalet) made my experience exceed expectations . Super service , very friendly staff , amazing ambience , the property was well maintained and well taken care of . the whole thing was just AMAZING . I highly recommend it in low / high season , all year along if you want to relax and disconnect for some time.

Better than home

  • 5 of 5

We came to South Point Villa for the Sun, heat and the ocean but we will come back for the food and friendship. The chefs cooked us curried prawns, curried chicken and fish. Breakfast has been made for us every morning by our house maid Indrani. My wife and I love shopping locally so we go to the small fruit market around the corner and buy bananas, papaya, pineapple and passion fruit. The store by the railway tracks has bread delivered every day so that completes breakfast. We have had the chef make lunch for us a few times as well. The Calamari is great, as is the BLT if you are looking for a taste of home. We have also had butter fried cuttlefish and simple egg sandwiches. Other days we have cooked for ourselves and worked our way through the ample leftovers.

We stayed in The Chalet for the month of March 2018. The house was perfect for the two of us. The Chalet has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a wonderful outdoor area. The overhead fan keeps us cool and the pool is only a few steps away. We have been able to use the villas next to the ocean when they have been empty and the ocean view at all three of them is great. The villas are all meticulously maintained by the army of gardeners and maids. We were offered a free boat cruise on Lake Kogalla where the rental Cottage is located while there we saw monkeys and eagles. A stop at Cinnamon island completed some of our souvenir shopping for friends at home.

We have enjoyed meeting all of the staff at South Point Villas. Mr. Gamini has been a wonderful resource for local knowledge answering all of our questions. Anil (Mr. Fixit) has been ready willing and able to fix any little issues that have come up. Mrs. Sonali the owner has been a pleasure to deal with quickly replying to emails and answering any of our questions. Our house maid Indrani is a treasure. She has made our breakfast, made out beds and kept the house clean. When we moved to one of the other houses for the afternoon, she followed. She made sure we got across the road ok and had everything we wanted when we arrived.

Monkeys, Peacocks and a Mongoose visited the garden as well as many other local birds.

We enjoyed everything about our month here and happily recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation in Sri Lanka.

Charming bungalow in great location

  • 5 of 5

We felt very lucky to find this great place to stay. It was the perfect last stop on our Sri Lankan holiday, ideally situated to explore the coast and Galle, but an equally exciting place to while away a day or two in the lovely pool and gardens. The bedrooms are a generous size each with their own spacious en suite and dressing room. And there's a host of super friendly staff on hand to keep the place tidy, advise on day trips and cook meals if you desire. A real gem. We will be back!

The Chalet at South Point Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet is a lovely property, furnished to a very high standard. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, all with 4 poster beds, air-condition and mosquito nets. But the outside dining veranda is exceptional. Overlooking the gardens and swimming pool this is the perfect place to eat and relax regardless of the weather. We were served high quality breakfasts every morning at our convenience, and our chef took our evening meal orders which were prepared to perfection. The owners and all of the staff at South Point are incredibly helpful and friendly but at the same time un-intrusive. There are dedicated drivers and luxury vehicles on hand 24 hours a day for hire and they again offer a fantastic service. We were taken to a Tea plantation, Turtle sanctuary, Elephant orphanage, temples and several surf beaches. The whole experience, with two young children, was everything we had hoped for and more. We will definitely go back.
