About Daniela Wolf-Mennen
Anne, my mother, comes from Bad Neuheim, near Frankfurt am Main and bought this gorgeous estate with my father 25 years ago, and created a little piece of paradise in the midst of a jungle landscape. Many of our guests keep coming back, and have even become friends of ours. Anne is currently on-site with Lekha, a close friend of the family, to help our guests. I manage the whole operation from Germany and fly to Sri Lanka twice a year for vacation. Just like my grandparents, I have caught the Sri Lanka bug.
Daniela Wolf-Mennen purchased this House in 1990
Why Daniela Wolf-Mennen chose Beruwala
Even back in the times when Sri Lanka was known as Ceylon, my parents already knew that they wanted to settle down there one day, after having spent several vacations there. The storybook beaches, a lush green rainforest, and a 2,500-year-old civilization with imposing stony artefacts: there are few countries that offer so much culture, beauty, and wildlife as Sri Lanka. And yes - we offer everything up to Bavarian standards. Sri Lankans have been working tirelessly to develop their country, and have yet remained some of the most warm-hearted people. The country is a religious tapestry where the exotic abounds, yet a touch of British finery also has its place.
What makes this House unique
Our estate is far from the noise of the streets, yet is close enough to the sea, next to lovely beaches. We especially love the lily pond in our little Garden of Eden, surrounded with flowers, trees, and wildlife. 150 species of birds visit us, including the Hanuman langur, butterflies, chipmunks, monitors, lizards, geckos, and free-tailed bats.

Definitely paradise and a Seaside Home in tropical garden sadly missed
Have now returned home after a brilliant, excellent, superb holiday at Villa Anna Resort,from the moment we arrived at the villa and were met by Niyas until we sadly left 29 nights later everything was superb.Niyas was brilliant at his job,a mind of information and helpfulness we are proud to say he is now a good friend of ours,that is how much we appreciated his good work.The meals produced by Hamanta were superb,both these gentlemen are a credit to the owners of the villa as are Lekha and Suwarna the 2 ladies who work in the office any queries are dealt with professionally and promptly.I cannot remember the correct names of the 2 gardeners/pool lads,but I cannot miss these two out,every day they gave us a good morning,afternoon,holiday still good ,I could go on ,thank you lads.
Anna the owner was in residence,a lovely lady who always found time to talk to us about our holiday,we shall miss her.
Daniela who was our contact when booking the villa always replied promptly if we had any queries, excellent administration.
For our trips we used Suresh this was arranged by either Lekha or Suwarna,he is a gentleman,a very safe driver and speaks good English.Thank you Suresh for your tips and going that bit extra to enhance our away days.
The beach is a 10 minute leisurely walk away and is beside Ypsylon hotel for anyone wishing to look it up on Google maps.
The abundance of wildlife in the garden is mouth watering,monkeys,mongoose,monitor lizzards of various sizes from small to very large.Tropical birds by the dozen and when looking up to the sky ,eagles , kites and other birds of prey,having breakfast on the patio and seeing all this wildlife makes life great
Summing our holiday up,once again thank on to all involved in Villa Anna Resort for the super holiday we have had,This was our 10th visit to Sri Lanka and ranks up there with the best if not the best holiday we have had in Sri Lanka.
Oh nearly forgot see you all in 48 weeks time,yes the holiday was that good we are returning we have already rebooked.
Good health to you all
Idyllic setting and fantastic service
We were made to feel very welcome. The villa was cleaned everyday thoroughly. The pool was very beautiful set in the tropical gardens. We will come again.
Thank you very much Carolyn for being our guests and we would be very happy to see you again you are always welcome thank you very much Daniela and the whole Villa Anna Team
Fantastic find - will definately return
We stayed over Christmas and New Year 2018 and had a wonderful time. The house was clean and tidy, décor was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for Swarna and staff, we did half board most days and the food was exceptional. Daniela kept in touch via WhatsApp on the run up to our stay so everything was in place and organised.
Swarna organised us a safari at a much more reasonable rate than any where else we found, she also sorted us tuk tuks as and when needed. The pools are brilliant, our kids spent most of their time in there! We had a couple of massages in the Ayuervedic building while we were there and they were the best we've ever had! The gardens an space available are really lovely and a good space away from the hustle and bustle outside. We really liked the wildlife, flora and fauna (monkeys, monitor lizards, mango trees, coconuts etc..) The location is good once you get your bearings and bentota beach is a little spot of paradise - Morgalla beach is a bit more touristy with restaurants on the beach. Nearby Aluthgama is a busy little town but you can get all the bits and pieces you'd ever need. We can highly recommend Pier 88.
We would definitely stay again, not only because the accommodation is fab, but because everyone was so helpful.
Dear Robert and family,
thank you so much for your excellent 5 ***** rating. Your description meets the point. That's exactly what we want to convey to our guests. The feeling of "I want to come back" and many guests keep coming back. We were happy that you were our guests and you are always welcome to us. Please recommend us to your friends - we will look after them like VIP's. Greetings Daniela with the entire Villa Anna team! And again a very happy new year 2019 :-)
Great Villa! Wonderful staff!
We just had a wonderful week in Villa Hibiscus, directly in front of the large main pool and situated in extensive gardens. The villa was situated walking distance away from some great beaches, our particular favourite was Moragalla. Our stay was greatly enhanced by the efforts of all the staff. Lekha was so friendly and helpful, catering for all our needs, including organising trips, and providing a valuable source of local information. We opted for the breakfasts and dinners and can whole heartily recommend the food. Nothing was too much trouble and they happily catered for our every whim. Thanks also to Shian our housekeeper who gave use a personal tour of the many fruits growing in the gardens and was always cheerful and informative. If you plan to explore further afield we can recommend using the services of a local driver Suresh who was organised by Lekha. He took us on an eight day tour round the island organising our itinerary, providing invaluable advice and recommending some wonderful restaurants. Without reservation we would recommend this place for anybody wanting a base to experience the delights Sri Lanka has to offer.
Dear Bill and family,
Thank you so much for you visit!
Lekha and the whole stuff loved you very much. Very nice guests!!!
Please come again when ever you want!
Daniela with Lekha
Lovely property; lovely people; relaxing stay; best pool ever!
Villa Anna was a beautiful and relaxing oasis. The gardens and pool in particular are superb. Daniela, Lekha and the rest of the team are so helpful and willing to bend over backwards to make sure the stay is as relaxing as possible. From booking drivers or Tuk Tuks to providing amazing meals. We would definitely recommend.
Thank you Tim and family! You have been a wonderful guest and we would love to see you again one day! All the best for you and please come again - we all miss you! Daniela, Lekha and the whole team with Bruno the dog!
Small piece of paradise
Our stay at this property was beyond expectations! It is a quiet, in the middle of nature location: can you imagine waking up in the morning next to a pool reflecting the blue sky, seeing the parrots, squirells and monkeys in the beautiful trees around? The property has a few family of varans (don't worry, they are totally harmless) and a secret pond in the back, with water lillies and water birds. The team from the villa is really warm, hard working to ensure you have the best stay: from cleaning the rooms, serving the breakfast, dinners, guiding you to the area around, making sure you will not miss anything. Our tips: while you are there book your massage sessions (Ajith, you rule with your blessed hands!) and, very important, ask for breakfasts and dinners, you won't regret it - srilankan hoppers (appam), fresh fruits (mango, papaya, maracuya, melons, baby bananas), rice, fresh fish and fresh juices, I hope you will thank us for reccommeding it :). From the property gate to the Beruwala Beach is a short walk of 5 minutes. Beruwala Beach is a beautiful, large, quiet beach. Enjoy your stay, we will return, that's for sure!
If beaches are what you're looking for, you'll find an expansive bay on the ocean coast, palms on picturesque slopes, and quaint small islands dotting the coastline. Villa Anna Resort, our estate with four holiday homes, is one on the most beautiful locations in this area, a tropical oasis that boasts an individual holiday offering for everyone. You'll forget your everyday stresses here. Just let your mind wander on the terrace by the lush garden. This family-minded holiday home is peaceful and relaxing, and under German management.
You can explore and experience the grandiose natural landscape, with beautiful tropical plants and undisturbed wild animals, along with a fascinating culture and friendly people. It is a perfect place for athletic activities or relaxation, for you to enjoy and be astonished. You'll find plenty of sun, sea, and happiness. This is a perfect point of departure for excursions that we are happy to organise for you.
We are striving to achieve ever-higher standards in privacy and service. Our villas have a pleasant effect of making you feel just right. Our estate boasts a relaxing vacation - your stay here will be an unforgettable experience.
The beaches are just a 10-minute walk from the property, and are among Sri Lanka's most beautiful.
Our cook will prepare breakfast and dinner for you. How about a nice chili omelette for breakfast? The local cuisine is not only healthy, it is also delicious. Our cook is happy to give you a glimpse of his home cooking. However, he is also perfectly proficient in Western cuisine.
Villa Anna Resort offers you once-in-a-lifetime comfort, charm, and unique relaxation. Here, we greet you with a genuine smile and honest hospitality.
If you want the perfect vacation for yourself, our estate is one of the best-kept secrets around for you to rejuvenate your body, spirit, and soul.
