“A new family for a week !”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

A family management in this pretty and clean resort in Hikkaduwa. We have been treated like part of the family!! We didn't expect that much about the food and it was great to be surprised by the mother of the owner that was is the best sri lankan cook ever!! Try the chopsuey and the soup ;p Rooms are clean and the common space very comfortable. Price is more than ok.

Room Tip: Different kind of rooms. If there's availability ask to see more than one

Star Holiday Resort is clean and offers exactly what you need from mid-range priced accommodation. The mosquito net and fan ensure a comfortable night's sleep. It is also only 5 mins walk or a £1 tuk/ tuk away from the beach and nightlife of Hikkaduwa.

However what sets this place apart are the owner Sampath and his lovely family. We were only there two days but were bowled over by their warmth and kindness (the fact they insist on a photo of them and their visitors upon departure for their scrapbook gives an idea of what they're like).

I would absolutely encourage people to stay in Star.

The Star Holiday Resort is run by a nice married couple who are very helpful.
The rooms are fairly basic but clean. You can request mosquito net, fan and air conditioning in advance.
The resort is set amongst a well kept garden where if you are very lucky you may see humming birds, monitor lizards etc.
The location is close to the bus garage about 10 minutes walk up the first road on your left. At night the road is quite dark but seemed safe, if this worries you tuk tuk's are very cheap.
This end of town is less touristy than where most people seem to stay about a mile away but I liked that the area around the bus station is bustling and interesting.
I was satisfied with my stay

Room Tip: Asdk for mosquito net, air conditioning and fan in advance
