“Delivers exactly what you want from a Sri Lankan getaway”
Reviewed 23 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

The Lookout is very cleverly positioned in an area that provides for complete privacy and an almost (very quite) private beach literally on your doorstep (With a gorgeous pool to overlook a quintessential sri lanka postcard backdrop). Whilst at the same time being a convenient 2 minute tuc tuc from Hirikitiya (a.k.a Blue Bay) Bay that offers more action with surf schools, cafes, and a spectrum of waves for the beginner through to more advance surfer.

The villa itself has been well thought out and beautifully designed an furnished. A luxurious space that is pet friendly and enough square footage to comfortably allow even for larger families and/or groups of couples.

The hand picked (and exceptionally well trained staff) are what really make the difference here. The kitchen are capable of a variety of dishes and cuisines and especially skilled serving traditional Sri Lanka plates (highly recommend their freshly caught sea food specials). The head butler is knowledgeable, polite and understands the right balance of presence according to your tastes.

The Lookout is also located in the stunning Southern tip of the country that has not yet been over developed and still a practical distance to other nearby attractions (both waves and historical areas of interest).

Couldn't recommend the Lookout more.

“Luxury villa in beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The Lookout in DIckwella is an amazing place to stay. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by owner Nicola and housekeeper Ash who provided amazing hospitality throughout our stay and made us feel truly welcomed.
If you love luxury and the finer things in life, personalised service and privacy- then this is for you.
The villa is located on the beautiful Dikwella Beach, around 3 hours from the capital. Nicola has used her impeccable taste to create a beach house with stunning interiors, thoughtful decor and real character. The accents and decorations really speak to guests and remind them of the beach location & Sri Lanka's heritage with old photos, vintage maps and traditional decorations such as the Buddha statue greeting you as you enter.
The house is brand new, and all finishes have been executed to ensure perfection. The pool is the best place to spend your day lounging around, with the housekeeper Ash bringing you cocktails and snacks as you desire which are all cooked by the in-house chef.
The chef himself is amazing, creating traditional Sri lankan cuisine such as curries & breakfast dish hoppers which are a MUST TRY, down to seafood feasts of fresh produce gathered from the market that day and on your plate for dinner.
The beach is deserted and wonderful for privacy, and great for surfers, windsurfers and swimming. Walk 15 mins over to the next beach Hiriketiya full of surfers, cute little beach hut restaurants selling food & drinks or renting surf boards.
This property would be ideal for WEDDINGS, CONFERENCES, FAMILY VACATIONS and GROUP HOLIDAYS- with The Lookout catering to 12 people & its next door counterpart under the same roof also the same.

“Pure goodness, epic food, staff and super fun surf right round the corner!”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

First off, the location is incredible. Situated in the corner of the Dickwella, the foot fall on the beach minimal, giving it that extra private feel to the whole place. You can view the sea from all of the rooms, not to mention the super comfy mattresses and well designed interior. As much as I wanted to just kick back and chill in the house/garden/pool all day, the next bay offers an epic surf break for all levels. A super fun left hand point for the more experienced, and a mellow beach break right next to it for beginners.

Ill definitely be back! On top of this, the food was delicious and the staff were all friendly and on point with the service. Bravo The Lookout !

“Luxury, secluded villa for relaxing and indulging.”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a beautiful, well designed villa with everything one would need for a relaxing break with friends or a perfect family trip. All bedrooms en-suite. Efficient and friendly staff including a Sri Lankan cook for traditional food right at your table. Location is wonderful with a few steps down to the beach which is safe for swimming. Set on a lovely bay for sunset walks.

“A secret paradise ”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Down a long unsuspecting driveway in the middle of a busy street sits the grand entrance to their amazing property. Every aspect of the design has been well thought out with wide open living spaces and high ceilings. Every room has a view out towards over the infinity pool and out over Dickwalla beach. I was lucky enough to be there when hosts Nicola and Matt were on site. Both were incredibly welcoming and ensured I was quickly relaxing with a cool drink by the pool. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for something a little special in Sri Lankan gorgeous southern coast.
