“Pure tranquility”

We stayed at the villa for 14 nights in August and can say from booking the villa we could not wait. Tam the owner was very helpful and kept in touch with us.

Firstly the villa - in beautiful surroundings and we felt very much home from home. The villa had everything you could possible want and the space and bedrooms were of a good size. Sometimes we felt like we were rattling around as there were only 2 of us and the villa is really for 6 people.

Thushara and Roshan really look after us. Roshan offered advice of where to go to eat what beaches were best to visit etc. Roshan cooked for us in the evening and made us whatever we wanted. The quality of the food was by far the best we eat in Hikka, Roshan's Sri Lankan curries were fantastic. One night Roshan did a BBQ for us by the pool and visited the fish market to get plenty of fresh fish and seafood for us.

You pay for breakfast which is about £2.50pp and a Sri Lankan evening meal was £4pp, if you wanted anything else then you just paid for the cost of the food from then shops.

Thushara stays at the villa in a room behind the kitchen and is on hand to do anything for you, whenever you need it. Each morning he would set a table up for us in the garden overlooking the pool and then make us breakfast, again anything that we wanted. Thushara comes over as very quiet but he is a really friendly and helpful person who always had a big smile. Thushara also drove us around in the villa's tuk tuk and he was a very safe driver. When we wanted Thushara to pick us up we would just text Roshan and he would then get Thushara to come and pick us up.

The grounds of the villa are fantastic and the number of birds that visit the gardens is unbelievable. We loved nothing more then just walking around the gardens walking down to the pool area and then sitting in the pavilion looking out over the paddy field.

I can not recommend this villa enough, the actual villa is fantastic but add in the surroundings, the pool, the food and the service from Thushara and Roshan and it is a 5 star +++

“Amazing and Incredible place to stay!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This villa is an awesome place to bring friends, family or partners. It has everything. The pool has a stylish negative edge and is part of an outdoor entertaining area with undercover bbq and table setting. Inside the villa is very spacious with 3 private bedrooms all with private en suites plus entertaining area and dining area. It truly is a wonderful place to stay whilst spending time in Hikka. Roshan is the awesome guy and 'sous chef' that looks after the villa and cooks unbelievably good food and contributes substantially to the great experience we had whilst there.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. 5 Stars! A++++

We really enjoyed our stay at the villa. The cleanliness of the villa - pool - rooms is a high standard. The food is also extraordinary good and we couldn't get enough of it :)

All in all our stay was perfect - we will recommend the villa definitely to our friends and we hope to come back to Hikkaduwa soon.

“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

person found this review helpful

A beautiful secluded paradise a short distance from the sandy beaches and bustle of the adjacent town. The house and garden are exquisitely designed and beautifully maintained. Service is simply exceptional and the manager / cook is a graduate of luxury hotels with a culinary repertoire to match! The infinity pool and attached club house are major attractions and were where we spent hours of our time, drinking tea and gazing over the lush paddy fields. If you are lucky an evening poolside BBQ is a treat not to be missed.Fresh fruit from the garden, when in season, is served at meals and free wireless is available. Crisp clean sheets and effective air conditioning. What more could one ask for.
