“A First Class Holiday”

We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to most areas in the world, but when we arrived in Sri Lanka (having researched it thoroughly) we were shocked. It is beautiful! You can travel past Caribbean quality beaches, rainforest, lagoons and mountains - all in a single day. We met amazing people, with amazing stories, but they were never demanding in any way.

But now to the best. The villa at Hikkaduwa is incredibly undervalued. We travelled as a family of 4 and didn't even need to use the top floor of the house! The house is open plan for modern living and had the most amazing pools. We were supported by a chef of 30+ years experience who could make us absolutely anything. After 3 or 4 days we just said "surprise us!" - all of the food was of exceptional quality (fish a speciality). All for circa £ 70.00 a week (full board). On average we spent only £ 10.00 a day for ingredients (and at times we requested separate food; western for the kids and incredible Sri Lankan curries or seafood for us). Included in these costs was a shopping and housekeeping service.

And then there is "Chat" - the icing on the cake. Chat looked after us (and pretty much carried our 3 year old son) from the start of the holiday right until the end. Chat can do anything; and is the least pushy "tour rep" I have ever met. He would pop in and see if evrything was ok, and when he didn't we really missed him! He organised some spectacular tours with prices we simply couldn't fathom how he did it! We spent 10 days in the villa and then 3 days touring the island....both were spectacular in their own rights. Chat has become a firm friend.

Although we are a family that typically likes to go to new places and try new things; we will be going back next year. For obvious reasons I'm loathed to suggest that this Villa with support staff is spectacularly undervalued - but, simply put, it is.
