Beautiful secluded property set in a verdant lush tropical garden. Wake up to birdsong. Infinity Pool with a fabulous view over the rice paddies of Hikkaduwa. What more could you want? This is as close to Paradise as you can get. This is the place to relax and be pampered. Privacy guaranteed as the villa is set within large grounds of 1.5 acres . Villa comes fully staffed with a cook, housekeeper, gardeners and night watchman. The cook can produce delicious Sri Lankan meals and has a small repertoire of western meals. A seafood barbeque poolside is one of the highlights of your stay at Gallindawatta (Sri Lankan name meaning stone well garden).
