Hikkaduwa

Hikkaduwa, with plenty of restaurants and shops, enjoys a lively atmosphere lacking in most of the island's beach towns. The diving season along the south coast is November to April and Hikkaduwa has the best diving schools. Nearby beaches also offer great surfing, swimming, water skiing and wind-surfing opportunities
Local attractions include a dive centre, turtle hatchery, river safari, rain forest, surfing and whale watching (from Mirissa or Galle).

“Jungle retreat”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2016

The bungalow is very well equipped and situated in a ideal location for those looking to unwind although it could do with some updating to the interior but aside from that we had a excellent holiday. We were met from airport by Udaya and once arriving met loco his wife who I must say made us more than welcome constantly smilling and served a lovely breakfast every morning on our terrace .Once again I would like to thank them for there hospitality.

“Would give it 6 out of 5 if we could!”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2015

We are now the second generation of our family to stay in "Thilina", my parents stayed for 6 weeks back in 2007. We stayed this visit for 5 weeks and will definitely be staying again. Situation of "Thilina" is perfect if you are not into the beachfront lifestyle which can include loud music till all hours and constant traffic. "Thilina" is situated approx 2km, about a 6 minute Tuk Tuk ride, from the Hikkaduwa beach road, the loudest thing your likely to encounter is frogs after the rain or birds in the morning. Udaya and Loku are the perfect hosts being helpful and considerate at all times without being overly intrusive. "Thilina" has all the comforts you require including a small kitchen should you wish to cook, satellite TV with a selection of English speaking channels. Air conditioning is present in both the main living area and the double bedroom. The veranda is the perfect place to sit in the mornings and watch the resident mongoose or the ever active chipmunks. If we could give it six stars we would!

“Excellent peaceful sanctuary, with perfect hosts”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2014

Located 3km from the beach, Bungalow Thilina provides a perfect peaceful jungle retreat. Udaya and Loku are available and willing if you need any help at all but also manage to avoid intruding on your privacy. The bungalow is very well equipped and comfortable with ideal outdoor furniture for 'nature watch'. Kosala the local 'tuk tuk' driver complements the 'hosting service'. We enjoyed whale watching, wildlife safari, historic tours together with swimming and surfing daily! Amazing seafood in a variety of locations too. We will return - that much is certain. Many thanks to all concerned!

“Relaxing Bungalow in quiet area”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

A wonderful, fully equipped Bungalow with lovley hosts that really take care of you! Little distance from Town, but no problem with transportation with "the own" Tuktuk driver. I can highley recommend this Bungalow!

“Fabulous Villa”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2013

Arrival: Arriving in the early hours after a long flight it was wonderful to be met at the airport by the smiling face of Udaya who took charged and whisked us to our villa quickly and safely and then to be greeted by his wife Loku with flowers. What a joy and fantastic start to our very first trip to Sri Lanka. Accommodation: The beautiful Villa Thilina was exactly as described, clean and not only well maintained it provided all the facilities we needed and more. This is the best equipped villa we have stayed in and we have been to many around the world. The location and the feeling of being in a jungle were superb with the bird song, fireflies, the unusual animals and Henry. Being the best friend of all mosquitoes I found the surround nets and the fan on the patio a great help, it allowed me to sit out at night with little fear of being bitten to pieces. What other accommodation offers you, security, free local and national calls from the villa telephone, free internet access from the available dongle, beach towels, free washing service, free Air Conditioning and free use of the mosquito machines with tables. We have been fortunate enough to travel widely and have never found a villa that offers all this free. Family: The hospitality is second to none; the family (Udaya, Loku and their boys, Tharindu and Thilina) is attentive without being invasive, breakfast delivered every morning with a genuine smile, and information and knowledge freely available without feeling you are bother them. We were honoured to be invited to their son Thilina 15th birthday celebration; it was amazing how they just treated you as part of the family. Trips: We enjoyed many trips, some planned with Udaya to places we wished to see, Safari, Waterfalls, Moonstone Mines and Turtle Farm, Dambulla, Polynnurwaru Sigiriya all stunning and Kandy Temple of the Tooth, amazing, really pleased we went. We found Udaya to be extremely knowledgeable. Others where we were invited to join them on their trips to the fruit and Vegetable market or to walk around the old town and walls of the Fort in Galle. Transport: You could walk to Hikkaduwa and the beach but it is some 3 kilometers away, the sun gets very hot and the traffic can be a little scary. Kosala the smiling one and his Tuk-Tuk is a much safer and quicker way and he is available to be booked or at short notice when necessary. Beach: The beach in Hikkaduwa is clean, long and easily accessible with safe places to swim.
