"Perfect holiday villa in Hikkaduwa"

We stayed at Villa Kos for a week and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Asanka picked us up at the train station, on arrival the first thing you see is the gorgeous garden and the amazing pool, which is the perfect temperature at any time of the day. All 4 rooms, each with their own bathroom AND AC AND hot water (bonus!) were just what we needed, and spacious. The living room is well equipped with a flat screen TV and lots of DVDs and a nice sitting area to hang out in after a long day in the sun. The kitchen is also perfect, big enough for cooking if you want to make your own meal. However, we ordered dinner a couple of nights there and the food was brilliant. We asked for local fare and were not disappointed - they even made some dishes out of the mango and jackfruit growing on the trees in the garden (get both, they are delicious!). We ate outside in the garden by the pool which was lovely.

WiFi is available, a tiny bit spotty at times but when you're in heaven you don't really need to connect to the internet!

The staff is extremely friendly - George responds very quickly to all messages and is super helpful, Asanka and Udesh who manage the property are the same. They will order tuk tuks for you to get you to the beach whenever you want!

Hikkaduwa in general is amazing, great food, great beach, great people. All in all, I would 100% recommend Villa Kos to anyone, and will be going back again soon!!

We are trilled you decided to stay at villa kos after your adventures around Sri Lanka.
The team are beaming at such high praise
Asanka says it was a honour to have taken care of you and your guests
Really hope you will return soon
Thanking you George ( villa owner )

"A great place to get away from it all"

With its wonderful garden, swimming pool and alfresco dining area, Villa Kos is a perfect escape for couples, families and friends.

Each of the four bedrooms boasts a four-poster bed with en-suite bathrooms. For those with small children, however, a few well-placed cushions on the floor are advisable – to help avoid things going bump in the night.

In addition, with two of the bedrooms located on the outside of the main villa, the doors to the villa have to be left unlocked at night. But as the place is extremely friendly and safe, the only nighttime visitors you'll need to be aware of are a few small frogs.

The kitchen has most of the basics for you to be able to dine in – gas hob, pans, kettle, etc. Though, a few of the pans could do with being replaced.

The friendly staff are always on-hand (in an adjacent house) to book tuk-tuks to the beach, cars for longer journeys (into Galle, for instance) or for good advice as to where to eat or visit. They can also do the cooking for you - or arrange for local food to be delivered.

All in all, Villa Kos is a great place to kick back and relax in. Or to use a base for day-trips to local beaches etc.

So kind to take the time to send wonderful photos and do review
Thanks for the tip kitchen utensils have been replaced.
Also looking for appropriate position to place cushions.
Pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at villa kos.
Best wishes George
