“Beautiful Villa but not very private.”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
3
people found this review helpful

The villa itself is brand new and looks beautiful, it has good facilities and the manager Udi is very friendly. One thing we weren't quite aware of before we booked was the distance from Hikkaduwa; it takes about 20 minutes in a tuktuk to get from the villa to Hikkaduwa.

Meals can be purchased from the main complex which is a couple of villas up the road, the food is pretty good but we thought it was very over priced. Transport can also be arranged for airport pick ups and drop offs, but again this was very overpriced. You can get transport for more than half of the cost if you book a local taxi company.

If you want a bit of privacy then that's not going to happen here, the fence between the garden and the beach had been destroyed by the sea prior to our visit so quite often you would get random people standing on the beach and staring at you when you are in the pool or sunbathing in the garden. There is a security guard at the property 24hrs a day and another guy who tidies up for you who we found to be rather over attentive. The outside areas of the property are monitored by CCTV.

In summary, yes it is a nice place but I think it is too far from Hikkaduwa and not as private as I would have liked.

Thank you for taking the time to review our villa.
I'm sorry you misunderstood the distance to Hikkaduwa, however in an e-mail to our guest we accurately described the time and distance from the villa to Hikkaduwa. Plus we have a map on the website.
We offer transportation as a convenience to the guests and we are very careful to offer competitive rates. All our vehicles are like new, clean,reliable, and have licensed professional drivers. We have found when renting a cab off the street you are never sure of what you will get.
We offer delivered meals to the villa as a convenience. The villa has a beautiful new fully equipped kitchen and there is a restaurant across the street that offers an alternative to cooking or ordering meals delivered. We do not charge extra for delivery.
We maintain a minimal small picket fence along the property line at the beach so as not to obstruct the beautiful view. (This fence was washed out to sea by a storm recently) The property has a fairly high masonry wall on the other 3 sides for privacy. The security guards are more than happy to ask individuals to move along if they are bothering the guests.
Uncle (our yard and pool man) is always very helpful. If he was too attentive all a guest has to do is ask him to be less attentive. We have found most people like the attention and help he provides.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We live in Sri Lanka and tried many hotels and villas on the Western coast. The Palm Villa is certainly the best of all. What makes it so special? Location first. Its located right on the beach, you can step out of your gate and feel touch of the ocean. Its also located close to the town Ambulagoda and its easy to go shopping for your snacks and drinks. Its also 20 minutes away from the Hikka beach where we did snorkeling and even surfing. There are many nice attractions around for adults and kids as well such as tortoise hatcheries, interesting temples. Beach is super private and you almost don't have any strangers wondering around. Certianly nobody there to try to sell you something.
Second thing about that villa is comfort. Everything is organized and arranged for a great comfort so you don't need to worry about anything. If you want to cook your meal, in the kitchen you can find gourmet equipment, juice and smoothie maker, toaster and you name it. If you don't want to cook you can either ask cook to come from neighboring villa to cook for you or just order food from that villa "6 Degree North" which we did and enjoyed food from it. We also use that villa for great massage and transportation to Hikka and around.
Rooms are huge and cozy. Master bedroom has a full view of the ocean so you can sleep with the soothing sound of waves on the background. Its very luxurious. Everything is done with a great taste and attention. Villa is brand new and spotless. Aircon did not work first day but next day it was fixed.
Infinity pool is huge for a villa on the beach and kids loved playing it all the time.
Dinner table set outside, living room is fully open to the ocean so you can enjoy ocean full time.
There is a guard and a gardener there which could be less imposing (wondering around villa without prior or any notice) but its a very minor discomfort.
That was an amazing experience and I wanted to go back already but unfortunately was not able to book it.

Thank you for your gracious review, I'm delighted you found everything to your satisfaction. It's takes a little while to get use to "Uncle" our gardener, but he is very helpful and always willing to help in anyway.
Hope to have you back soon.
