average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Stunning villa in a beautiful tranquil location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Ganganada and it was just as good as the first.

This is such a modern, spacious villa. It's lovely having 3 bedrooms, huge living area and private pool rather than being cramped into a hotel room.

The staff are all great and really helpful ( the villa comes with a chef, pool boy and cleaner. A manager lives close by to be on hand to organise day trips and transport.

Food was great - marmalade and passion fruit jam at breakfast are so good that this time I preordered 4 jars to take home with us!

As I mentioned, the food at the villa is fantastic, however the last night we went to Mangrovia Lagoon Restaurant, just outside Hikkaduwa, right on the Lagoon- one of the most memorable meals I have had in a long time. Absolutely stunning location serving gorgeous homemade Italian food. A Sri Lankan lady owns the restaurant and she does all the cooking and service. She worked in a restaurant in Italy for over 20 years so she really knows her stuff.

Back to Gangananda, I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Great for families or for a small group of friends. Total relaxation, a great place to unwind and recharge the batteries whilst watching the water monitor lizards swim in lagoon and monkeys jumping in the trees. Bliss
