“Great place to chill out with family and friends”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

From the moment we were met at the airport to the return journey 24 days later it could not have been more professionally organised. The tour manager Chat was extremely helpful in organising island trips and multiple pick ups and drop offs to and from the airport, as well as arranging trips up to the hill country, Galle and Colombo as well as a number of other day trips. All at reasonable rates. The air conditioned mini .bus comfortably seated 10 of us and the main driver Janaka (forever known as DJ) was careful, considerate and trustworthy. The house Chef Lall was truly worth his weight in gold, all meals were planned by our group on a daily basis and Lall delivered the food on time and to our individual requirements, delicious! We didn't even have to wash up,, result! The gardeners and house keepers kept the place clean and tidy and maintained the pool on a daily basis. A few minor house keeping problems arose during our stay but they were dealt with quickly and efficiently. All in all if you're wanting a private get together with friends and family in a well run villa then I would fully recommend Hikkavilla.

“Excellent location and friendly staff made our holiday the most fun, relaxed holiday we have ever had!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have just returned from a weeks stay at hikka villa.

I would just like to say what a wonderful time our whole party had.

All the hikkavilla staff were outstanding and really made our holiday special - chat was a fantastic host and couldn't do enough for us, making us feel welcome, organising trips and tuk tuks making our holiday fun and relaxed, he was so good with our 2 toddlers and even took care of our babies while we enjoyed lunch durning one excursion. Lal the chef cooked wonderful food ( an eh lush fry up and fresh fruits every morning at our request was a fantastic way to start our day!) he also kept the kitchen area clean and tidy. We felt extremely safe with the driver at all times who collected us from the airport and drove us to all our excursions and who was also fantastic with our children.

The villa was kept clean and even though we were there only six nights a team came in to change towels, bed sheets and give a general clean. The swimming pool was perfect temperature with a babies pool all kept clean.

I would highly reccomemded this property for families with young children and the team supporting the villa really made this holiday the best we have ever had and we are already looking to book again for later this year!!!

“Needs Refurbishment”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Villa is in need of refurbishment, it was very shabby, no AC in main living room only a large fan which when on was difficult to hear the very limited TV channels.
Pool was dirty, sun longers very poor.
Disappointment all round.

First of all I am not able to identify this reviewer because I could not find any previous booking under this person's name.

Even if he is a previous guest or visitor, I would like to provide my feedback.

This villa has 5 AC bedrooms and its clearly mentioned that sitting hall, kitchen and bathrooms are not air conditioned similar to villas in middle east countries. even if its air conditioned, renter will be shocked in his life when he receive electricity bill which they need to pay at the end.

we do have various people occupy this villa from different countries unfortunately we may not able to provide all their preferred TV channels similar to 5 star hotels. We have satellite TV channels in English language.

Pool is cleaned and maintained by dedicated full time staff every day. Villa will be cleaned twice a week with complete linen and towel change and general cleaning is done upon each check out.

“Relaxing and comfortable villa which felt like home”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just come back from 14 nights spent at Hikkavilla in Hikkaduwa. We are a family of 6 and found it extremely relaxing and comfortable, in fact it felt just like home.

We were firstly picked up at Colombo airport up by “Chat” a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who very quickly became our children’s favourite person and a good friend to us!! The drive to Hikkaduwa was very comfortable and quick in his air-conditioned van on the new highway from the airport to the south of the island.

After checking in we met “Lal” our cook and housekeeper for the stay. During our stay Lal made us an amazing array of meals from traditional Sri Lankan dishes to more Western dishes for our children. He would discuss the meals we needed throughout the day and go shopping for the ingredients. He kept a very good tally of funds needed for our meals and we found we ate out very rarely as his food was much tastier and more value for money. Lal is a very quiet man who liked to please us and listened and watched what we liked. If we picked out onion in a dish, he noticed and would not put it in the next time!! He made us packed lunches for a day trips consisting of very tasty Sri Lankan style pancakes with banana, coconut and chocolate inside. On coming home we have all missed Lal and his cooking!!

Chat, the local guide who comes with the house is a world of knowledge about his beloved Sri Lanka. He took us on some amazing day trips such as the Maduwa River Safari, Turtle Farm and Hatchery, Elpitiya Waterfall just to name a few. Other days we were happy to explore ourselves the City of Galle by train from Hikkaduwa and also Hikkaduwa itself. Chat is not overbearing at all and is extremely honest and explains everything about costs up front. Chat would also “pop in” to the villa most days to make sure we were ok. Chat has become a great friend to us and we have kept in contact and will see him when we come back to Hikkaduwa, which we plan to often as its such a lovely part of Sri Lanka.

Our stay at Hikkavilla was made even better by being able to swim and relax in the private pool everyday. The gardens and pool are well maintained and are an asset to the villa.

The Villa is situated in a very lovely part of Hikkaduwa. It is quiet with lovely green surrounds and friendly local neighbours. It is easy to walk to most parts of Hikkaduwa from the villa otherwise it is very cheap and easy to get a Tuk Tuk driver to take you to town or further.

We have no hesitation in recommending Hikkavilla to families or groups that want to stay in Hikkaduwa. Chanaker, the owner is a very friendly and honest person who provides a gorgeous villa and staff to look after you.

“Awesome villa with personal touch”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The villa is perfect for a group. There are many rooms and bathrooms, a huge kitchen, a gym, a koi carp pond in the living room and so much more. The swimming pool is huge and invites for swimming in the lovely garden. There is even a little reading corner and a beautiful terrasse. Chanaka made the stay really great. The villa is ideal to relax, get together with friends and family or to explore the island. Chanaka can arrange a tour and there is a cook for preparing traditional sri lankan dishes. We recommend this villa to everyone who is looking for a spacious and clean villa with personal touch and great people to make your stay in Hikkaduwa unforgetable.

“Photos don't do it justice - incredible”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

As mentioned in other reviews, the photos do not do the property justice - it was incredible, there's even a gym and a koi carp pond in the living room!!! Chanaka met us on arrival and gave us a tour, the place is absolutely huge. I would love to come back with more than 3 people because it is the perfect group holiday home. We had loads of fun in the pool and exploring Hikkaduwwa.

We went out of season in May and so the price was incredible - amazing value for money compared to if we had a similar villa in Europe.

We really enjoyed our stay - there were a few teething problems with the villa as the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were newly refurbished, but I am sure these will be sorted soon.

There are lots of people on hand to help you out if you need anything.

Thanks very much, really enjoyed our stay!
