Hikkaduwa, Galle District, Southern Province
For a totally carefree, barefoot on the beach experience, this light and spacious villa has sea views and direct access to a large sandy beach at the end of the garden. There are no private beaches anywhere in Sri Lanka, and ours is as close to 'private' as you can get. Leave the worries and stress of modern life behind you and relax and unwind at this tranquil location. The villa's friendly and helpful staff will cook, clean and take care of the chores, so allow yourself to be spoiled! They are never intrusive, but dedicated to ensure you have the perfect holiday.

Enjoy cosy comfort in a clean tropical environment with all mod cons. Ideal for indoor and outdoor living and dining, with loads of space for a family (with children), or a group of friends.

It is also the perfect romantic getaway for a couple.

Interaction with guests
We try to personally welcome our guests whenever this is possible. Occasionally, when we are not in Sri Lanka, this is not possible. We then call our guests on the day they arrive to find out if all is well and whether any help is needed in making any special arrangements. Wherever we happen to be, we can always be contacted by phone or email, 24 hours.
The villa staff is available at all times during our guests' stay at Olu Beach Villa.

Our grown up family spent Christmas at the villa and it exceeded all our expectations. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble including arranging bbq's and bonfires on the beach. The sea was a bit rough (we all got dumped at least once :-)) but the pool water was cool and...

Although most of the reviews are so positive we were (to tell the truth) a bit worried about the road noise mentioned in the last couple of reviews but decided to book anyway, and so happy we did. You have to listen very attentively to actually notice the noise, specially if you keep the windows on the street side of...

Hosting you and your lovely family was a pleasure for us and the staff of Olu Beach Villa. Thank you for your kind comments.

We spent a week here at Olu Beach villa in April (family of 5 with 3 young children). What we loved -The proximity to the beach, accessible via a gate at the bottom of the garden. The sunsets were especially beautiful and we have fond memories of our children playing cricket in the evening with the local children. -The owner...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. Be assured I will look into the shortcomings you mention, the staff is employed to do more than just be pleasant and friendly. We have been experiencing unusually hot and humid weather since March and your stay in April coincided with the worst of it. There has been...

About the neighborhood
For those who prefer to vacation away from busy and crowded tourist resorts, Madampagama is an ideal destination. The sea is warm and inviting during the winter season from December to April. Ambalangoda, with its many well stocked antique shops is a treasure trove for those who enjoy antique hunting. This busy fishing town has quaint markets, and shops hidden away in narrow streets and alleys in the older parts. Ambalangoda is also famous for its mask making tradition. There is an old Dutch church and buddhist temples in and around the town, and a forest monastery a few kilometers away. Other destinations for day trips include moonstone mines, turtle hatcheries, a rainforest, a boat trip on the Madhu river. Hikkaduwa is just 15 minutes by car and Galle a few more miles further down t... more
