“Beautiful beachfront hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I stayed at Six Degrees for a week in June with family and friends and have to say I absolutely loved it!! The property was actually having some renovation work carried out (which will make it even more perfect) however the lovely owner made me very aware of this and it was never an issue during our stay. The house is both spacious and airy, and the location is awesome, sunset cocktails on the elevated pool deck are stunning. All of the staff onsite and the house manager Udith are all amazing, very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a luxury beachfront hideaway in Sri Lanka, you've just found it. Just beware... you WILL NOT want to leave!!

This is a special experience because of the wonderful staff who are such happy people dedicated to making your stay perfect.
The owner Suzanne was there at the time and she is so lucky to have these fantastic Sri Lankan people there led by Udith, the gentle giant who must be the most hospitable man I've ever met.
Six Degrees North is extending to the property next door which will also have fantastic ocean views,.
The location is perfect - close to Galle with lots of cute beachfront cafes on the way, and south of Colombo along the pretty coastline.
Galle is also a wonderful place to visit with the historic fort, lots of colonial buildings and local characters including the English artist who told us all about her fascinating art collection for sale in one of the lovely hotels.
Thanks Suzanne for your relaxed, happy attitude to life and for creating such a wonderful place that will live long in my memory.

Room Tip: All are set out beautifully

6 Degrees North is quite simply the perfect holiday experience. We spent 10 days there at the beginning of April and had a fantastic time. Our party consisted of two families, four adults and four children. The villa itself is wonderful, located right on the beach with the Indian Ocean a stone's throw away. The villa mixes traditional Sri Lanka with the more modern luxuries that we would expect at a 5* hotel. The garden is superb and impeccably maintained. As wonderful as 6 Degrees North is, it is only half of the experience. What really made our holiday so perfect was the team at 6 Degrees North. This started with Suzanne, the owner, who patiently answered the seemingly endless stream of random questions I asked over email! Then from the moment we arrived in Sri Lanka to be greeted at the airport by our smiling driver, Dumby (apologies for any names incorrectly spelt!). This would go on to be a feature of the holiday as Dumby took us around the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. At the villa, Inoka and Kalyane kept everything in order, including the children! Again, always with beaming smiles that lit up the whole place and with a discretion that meant we did not even notice that everything was being done for us until it was finished! Muna and Daya kept us safe at night, keeping a watchful eye over us...and Kalum, our amazing chef. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, all superb and eaten in the world's finest dining room, overlooking the Indian Ocean, for perfect sunset views and at least 400 photos to remember them by! Last but by no means least was Udi, the villa manager, who can pretty much sort anything and everything. Just from sitting around and chatting, Udi will know what you want to do and will suggest trips out based on what you tell him. Thank you, sir. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you. We took a few trips out to Kandy, the elephant sanctuary and orphanage, the turtle hatchery, Galle and the local children's orphanage. We were so well looked after both inside and outside the villa and I'm still struggling with the return to 'normality' two weeks after arriving home! I think it's safe to say we would love to return one day. I cannot recommend 6 Degrees North highly enough.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments. Inokas beautiful face lit up when we showed her what you had written, Kalum and Dambi and Monni were thrilled and of course Udith was as well. You were all just delightful and we sincerely hope that you will come back again soon.

This review is well overdue. We stayed at 6 degrees north about 6 months ago and it was totally amazing. The staff are just lovely- so sweet and gentle.....and the food was just unreal - breakfast and especially dinner! Udi is a fantastic character,who is very knowledgable and can organise anything. We were 2 families and there was plenty of space in this gorgeous villa. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip.

Called me confused but I also have stayed at 6 degrees North and my experience couldn't be more different from the previous review.... Going on an overseas holiday with three children is always a production. So you can imagine my delight and relief when the lovely Udith picked us up from the airport and drove us directly to the beach front property. The house itself is absolutely amazing. It is a perfect mix of traditional Sri Lankan craftsmanship with modern touches and luxuries. It is a pretty special trip when a very active 9 year old boy was occupied everyday, a 8 year old girl felt like a princess and a 5 month old baby was spoilt with smiles and cuddles all day long. Myself and my husband actually got the chance to read, swim and relax. The food was delicious, wonderful flavours and service. My family are going back with our extended family at the end of the year and we all can't wait. I would recommend this property and holiday location to anybody..

My husband and I stayed here with our daughter and 2 1/2 year old grandson Jan 17 - 25. It was a fantastic second week in Sri Lanka. The owner planned a wonderful itinerary for our first week providing volumes of information, arranging our driver, hotels and tours. We arrived in the evening to a warm dinner and welcoming staff.

We were blown away by the villa. Where do I begin? Udi and the staff at the house were attentive, helpful and friendly. Any problems we did experience were minor inconveniences. The grounds and pool are meticulously maintained on a daily basis. The staff is there all day and I was concerned we'd be uncomfortable but you hardly knew they were there. Meals were prepared to order and they bent over backwards to accommodate the baby. Food was fresh and delicious. Allow the cook a little freedom and you are quite likely to be delighted. Meals are served on the upper deck or wherever you'd like to eat. Inside the villa you'll find a binder full of information from the owner to help make your stay more comfortable and entertaining. Massages at the villa can be, and were, arranged. There are tour suggestions and helpful hints like where to go shopping in Galle for some great souvenirs. You'll also find the menu so if you opt to have the staff prepare meals you know exactly what it will cost. We didn't cook a single meal (hey we were on vacation). It was just too cheap to pass up. We went scuba diving with Blue Deep...also arranged by Udi.

We enjoyed our time lounging on the villa's beach watching the baby play in the sand safely. We also enjoyed the warm Indian Ocean. The surf was too much for the baby but not for anyone else. We loved it. The hammock was used almost daily. So relaxing. Please remember your sunscreen.

My husband and daughter wandered down the road and found an antique store and some other establishments but there are no sidewalks and traffic is kind of crazy. Fine for adults but not so much for little ones. My husband found it easy to catch a tut tut (taxi) down to the closest grocery store and picked up some snacks. ATMs and currency exchange stores are convenient as well. We hired the driver, Dambi, for our outings. Dambi was our driver both weeks and we were very happy.

Udi, Dambi and the entire staff treated us like royalty. Suzanne, the owner could not have been easier to work with. We would recommend 6 Degrees North wiothout hesitation and would stay again in a heartbeat.
