"Just Amazing"

A Villa paradise, 15 minutes walk from the beach and yet set in the most serene and gorgeous gardens. Our 3 week holiday seemed to fly by.From Al fresco dining by the pool to watching the monkeys swinging through the trees in the garden everything was perfect. The staff and Asela in particular are absolute gems. The in house cooking was fabulous giving us hardly any need to explore further afield. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who treated us with kindness and consideration at all times and respected our privacy.
Would we go back? Oh yes, tomorrow if we could.

Dear Jeff and Carol,

Thank you for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and love your comments on the gardens.

Best wishes,

Thanks Lachlan and family for your lovely review. I will pass on your thanks to Asela and the team.

Best time for the beach is December to March/April. That's also the time to go Blue whale watching.

"Get pampered in Hikkaduwa"

Allthough you can book the three seperate rooms via Agoda, Villa Gallindawatta is definetely not an hotel. It's much better. We rented the whole villa for a week in July 2013. We arrived around 9… More
