The Sri Lanka Southern Coast region
Sii Lanka is one of those places where history seems to fade into the mist of legend. Is not Adam’s Peak said to be the very place where Adam set foot on earth, having been sent out of heaven? Isn’t that his footprint squarely on top of the mountain to prove it? Or is it the Buddha’s footprint on Sri Pada? And isn’t Adam’s Bridge (the chain of islands linking Sri Lanka to India) the very series of stepping stones Rama, aided by his faithful ally, the monkey god Hanuman, stepped across in his mission to rescue Sita from the clutches of the Rawana,King of Lanka, in the epic Ramayana?
The first entries in the Mahavamsa – or “Great History” – date back to 543BC, which coincides with the arrival of Prince Vijaya in Sri Lanka. Some 300 years later, commenced the early Anuradhapura Period, with King Devanampiya Tissa as the first ruler. It was in this period that a sapling of the sacred Bo Tree, under which the Lord Buddha attained enlightenment, was brought to Sri Lanka. The late Anuradhapura Period, which began in the year 459, saw the reign of King Kasyapa, and the construction of Sigiriya. The Polonnaruwa period, witnessed the transfer of the capital from Anuradhapura to Polonnaruwa in 1073. Famed explorer, Marco Polo, arrived in Sri Lanka in the period between 1254 and 1324, and, in 1505, the Portuguese landed, and occupied the island’s coastal regions.
Royal and sacred cities, colonial strongholds, temple caves and virgin forests – with no fewer than seven World Heritage Sites declared and listed by UNESCO, Sri Lanka is one of Asia’s richest treasure troves of both natural and man-made wonders.
Six of these marvels span some 2,500 years of history – from the sacred city of Anuradhapura and the cave temples of Dambulla, to the magnificent temples and palaces of the royal city of Kandy. The Dutch fortification at Galle has the added distinction of being a living World Heritage Site.
But the seventh jewel in Sri Lanka’s heritage crown owes nothing to man and everything to nature: the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a biodiversity hotspot, with its own unique eco-system consisting of protected birds, flora and fauna. The country’s former royal capital, Kandy, the archaeological sites at Polonnaruw, Sigiriya – the palace in the sky – form Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle – a world of ancient wonders.
Spiritually inspiring, year after year, visitors from around the world make their personal pilgrimages to the seven World Heritage Sites of Sri Lanka.

"A truly memorable experience"
We have just returned from a fantastic month's holiday at the Villa Hiru Sandu. This was a truly memorable experience in this beautiful country. The villa is charming and the beachfront location is stunning. But above all, it was Lakmal and his team who made this a holiday to remember. Always attentive yet never intrusive they kept the villa,grounds and pool in pristine condition. The three of them were friendly and helpful and we miss them!
It is difficult to sum up such an experience in a few sentences but who could forget such memories as sitting on the verandah watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean whilst sipping on a gin and tonic or an ice cold beer? Or sitting under a palm tree watching the wildlife that came to visit on a daily basis? Or an early morning, barefoot walk along the picture postcard beach watching the friendly,local fisherman land their catch? And then of course there were the delicious meals Lakmal prepared for us. And so the memories go on!
We so enjoyed our lazy days at the villa that it was difficult to drag ourselves away. But when we did we visited some amazing places and sights. We saw wild elephants and other wildlife at Uda Walawe National Park and the bird life at Bundala. We went to Ella and the Tea Country, to Kandy and the historic fort of Galle. For these trips we had a friendly, safe and reliable driver and guide in Upal whilst for local trips we had Lakmal and his tuk tuk.
We had a wonderful month and I will certainly be repeating the experience!

"The problem with Hiru Sandhu"
The problem with Hiru Sandhu is that wherever we go in the world now will feel like Disneyland. This included our next stop after our two week stay at the villa which should have been a delight given its ratings on the world's best hotels websites. It wasn't and all we could think about at Amangalla in Galle was being back on the beach with Lakmal looking after us at Hiru Sandhu.
What made it so special?
Why would we re-visit at the drop of a hat?
Why will everywhere else in the world feel like there is something missing from now on?
Here are 5 reasons to stay at this villa (they all end in -ity... Is this relevant?):
The garden is alive so you won't need television. The beach can entertain you from the early morning until late at night. Lakmal is the only friend you will ever need during your stay and the food is served just how it should be. We wouldn't have changed a thing. Of course this might not be what you're looking for which is fine too as we didn't really want to write this review in case too many people get to hear about it!
