"Villa Wardhana" was built in 1936 and recently restored to modern standards. The house is set back from the coast road and a short walk from the beach, shops, restaurants and a surf break. The town of Galle and its famous cricket ground and heritage listed fort is only 19km away as are many other top class local attractions. The house is divided into 2 distinct living areas by a central courtyard with a fish-pond. There are 3 main double bedrooms and 2 loft style bedrooms. The large kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and equipment. The property gardens are well maintained with a fantastic paved pool area, complete with umbrellas and a BBQ. This property is ideal for a family of up to 8 or up to 4 couples who are looking for a hassle free and relaxing holiday by the beach.
I am an Australian living in Singapore. A keen surfer with a long association with Sri Lanka and the region.
"Villa Wardhana" was a project designed to create a great family environment where my family and friends could meet regularly to enjoy Hikkaduwa's laid back lifestyle in a private and relaxing setting.
Klaus Gohra purchased this bungalow in 2006
Historical bungalow close to the beach
A relaxing and peaceful garden area with a sprawling house and a pool.
The house is minutes to the beach, a great pizza bar only minutes away as well as beach bars for evening sunsets.
My good friend Ranjith and his family looks after the house in Hikkaduwa and manages the day to day running of the bungalow and provides excellent local advice as well as daily food deliveries, etc.
We spent 5 fabulous days in Wardhana - the villa is lovely, the location couldn't be better and everyone was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The villa is very close to the beach where there are plenty of laid back restaurants serving delicious food and bars as well. Not too many people at the beach, comfy individual huts to snooze and read. Perfect for sun bathers, surfers and also sundowners during the gorgeous sunsets! A great Italian coffee bar and yoga studio nearby. In the evenings we hung out in the pool, and even had our own barbie on our last night. I'll be back!
Villa Wardhana: In one sentence, 'Its simply the best place for a quality family holiday'. The couple that maintains the place therein (Ranjith and Chandrani) are really a nice couple and they actually make the experience that much more memorable.
