"Amazing place, staff and country!"

"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 )
