The visit did not start off well. I was driving, and Ajith (the owner) gave me wrong directions, so I ended up in Galle town, not at Unawatuna. The narrow road to the temple has a faded sign, so finding that road wasn’t easy. I had to park my car squeezed on this narrow road, as Hibiscus Villa does not... More

Hibiscus V, Owner at Hibiscus Villa, responded to this review

Hi George - really sorry that the house didn't meet your expectations and that we weren't able to make your stay a more pleasant one. Of course we can't do anything about the Sri Lankan climate unfortunately and the hot weather is a fact of life! The house listing does say quite clearly that we don't have AC or onsite... More

Nice place especially the garden. Breakfast was the best of our trip. Little bit far away from main beach but therefore very quiet. Great hospitality which made in a great stay at Hibiscus Villa. Diving school just a 1min Walk away. 100% recomendAtion.

I would actually give Hibiscus Villa 4.5 stars if possible. but am definitely not giving it 4 stars as it deserves more than that! The gardens are absolutely stunning and we spent a lot of time enjoying cups of tea sitting outside taking in the sheer beauty of the garden. The room was lovely and spacious, although I think one...

Something unique for sure. Great place for those who love animals. Dogs,which belongs to owner, wonderful birds, turtles and monkeys which with bit of chance you can feed. Villa is quite open rooms as well so sometimes you can find some insects in your room so better check your bed before go sleep. Also cause villa is open you can... More

The villa was really tasteful and the rooms facing the garden were lovely. It's not in the heart of the Unawatuna strip but that could be a good thing! Wifi throughout but no a/c. The team here were nice and helpful. Would recommend!

What an entrance! Once you open the gate you stumble into a precious garden, not sure whether anybody is home. The Villa itself is very neat and decorated nicely. We booked the Orchid room, the smallest, but still plenty of space. The roof is very high and the shower is great. The bed is spacious and comfy. Then the breakfast... More

We were lucky enough to stay here for 1 week in January 2015. It is Beautiful, Peaceful and Serene. Ajith and his staff are great and the Breakfasts are amazing! Juice is always made fresh, and it makes my mouth water to think of the fantastic Sri Lankan breakfasts we had. The rooms are great, and the finishing touches amazing.... More

We stayed in Hibiscus Villa for two nights in March 2014. It is such a Magnificent place. Ajith and the staff are extremely welcoming and make you feel right at home, they are very polite, attentive and at the same time operate mostly out of site. The food is excellent, we had a variety of traditional Sri Lankan style dishes... More

My wife and I had three nights here on our honeymoon and it was great. The garden is beautiful with lots of tropical trees, plants and wildlife and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Would definitely recommend.
