Visit this place for quick visit and I was pleasantly surprised. Hidden away from busy Hikkaduwa town and located in a calm neighborhood. Rooms were quite new, clean and all appliances and a small kitchen in every room. Clean serene beach was accessible in 2-3 minutes walk. Staff was very helpful and supportive would go an extra mile to meet my needs. Had a nice swim in the evening in its crystal clear (and warm) swimming pool for much needed relaxation. I would definitely visit Athithi Villa if I visit Hikkaduwa again!
This accommodation offers clean rooms with a small kitchen facility. The swimming pool is also well maintained and opposed to many other hotels opened until 21:30! We didn't read the hotel regulations and found our room uncleared the next day. One is supposed to leave a 'please clean' label which could maybe better be explained upon check in instead of expecting guests to read the leaflet in the room. Nice bathroom with a generous amount of towels. Staff is very friendly and ready to help with questions.
The images on the site somehow gave me the impression that the hotel is located at the beach which is not the case. It is actually a little hard to find and near the railway. The beach is close by but offers no shade, cafes etc. The sea there is wild and unsuitable for swimming. The Hikkaduwa town beach is located 2,5 km further up the road with very nice beaches, facilities and calm water suitable for swimming and snorkling.
We had a lovely stay here. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Small balconies overlooking the pool also. The staff were always helpful and keen to be of service. Food orders are a bit slow, but very good for the price. One of the cheapest food options we found in Sri Lanka in fact, and brought right to your room!
We stayed here for the last few days of our trip. The staff are absolutely fantastic, they couldn’t do enough and were so happy and helpful at all times. The pool is great and has a children’s part too. The rooms were so comfortable with a/c, wonderful bathrooms and a small kitchen area. We enjoyed sitting out on our terraces for drinks next the evenings and breakfast. Breakfast is nice too, we had Sri Lankan some days and American on others. A stone throws from the beach, ideal.
