      Fantastic Villa”

      I would highly recommend Villa Tara. It's in a great location mins away from the main strip and beach, nestled in a jungle like environment. Good food and staff can't do enough for you, which really makes this villa what it is. Really nice pool clean and comfortable rooms. Would definitely book again if returning to Hikkaduwa.

      Wonderful”

      Stayed in the Junior Suite with my wife and a friend. It was the perfect size and super luxurious. You could pick fruit off the trees overhanging the balcony. The staff were kind as haaaaaaayyylll. Breakfast, tea, hot shower, pool, surfing and snorkling arrangements, and tuk tuk rides for good prices. I can't imagine there is anything better for this price. If you're in Hikkaduwa, forget the big hotels... Villa Tara is the place to be.

      Location, Friendly and helpful staff, Cleanliness

      The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. I had reached the place about 2 hours before check in time because of the train timings, but they got my room ready quickly. The place is beautiful, well maintained and in a quiet location that makes for a perfect peaceful getaway. They have a swimming pool and all the rooms overlook the pool. Makes for a perfect place to enjoy the breakfast. It's also in close proximity to the beach - about 10 minutes walking distance from the main road. The town gets pretty quiet and the street isolated in the night. Although I had no unpleasant experience, as a solo traveler I preferred hiring a scooter so I am mobile in the night as well.

      Perfect stay!”

      Beautiful hotel, well-appointed room, close to beach

      We were glad to have chosen this hotel for our last two nights of our 15-day trip to Sri Lanka. It is about 5-8 minutes walk from the beach, which to be frank, was nothing special. For that reason, we spent most of our time relaxing by the pool or on the balcony. The property was quiet, our room was clean and well-appointed, and the staff were helpful and kind. The breakfast was fantastic - one of the best we'd had on this trip. For lunch and snacks, we would grab roti from some local restaurants nearby. The nearest one is this small roti hut nearby the railway, a few minutes from the hotel. They serve amazing fish roti balls that are dirt cheap but they're only open in the late afternoon (around 3pm). No complaints whatsoever about this hotel, except a couple of obnoxious and scantily-clad eastern European women who ruined the serenity for us.

      stilvoll, gepflegt, ruhig und erholsam”

      gepflegte Anlage mit tollem Ambiente und großzügigen, geschmackvollen Zimmern; sehr nettes, motiviertes und hilfsbereites Personal; sehr sauber

      Statt der geplanten 2 sind wir 4 Nächte geblieben- und hätte die Heimreise nicht angestanden, hätten wir es noch gerne länger genossen :-) Villa Tara ist ruhig gelegen, dennoch gelangt man zu Fuß schnell zum Strand bzw den Shops und Restaurants, und mit dem Tuktuk problemlos wohin man möchte (wurde immer super schnell vom Hotel organisiert). Die Anlage ist sehr geschmackvoll und hochwertig gestaltet, die Zimmer sind sehr großzügig und sauber. Wir haben insbesondere auch den großen Balkon genossen, wo es sich selbst bei einem vereinzelten Regenschauer in der Regenzeit wunderbar relaxen lässt. Das Frühstück war toll und abwechslungsreich, und der Kaffee war für uns der beste unseres gesamten Aufenthaltes in Sri Lanka- was wohl dem aus Wien stammenden Eigentümer zu verdanken ist ;-) Ansonsten entsprechen die Hotelfotos tatsächlich der Realität, was ja leider nicht immer der Fall ist. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen :-))
