Date of stay: October 2017Trip type: Traveled with family
Villa Birdlake is a place to witness rustic Sri Lankan architecture, in the middle of a well maintained "nature" full of surprises. Hikkaduwa lake is an additional pearl to Villa Birdlake where you can find wilderness and birds of many kinds...
Road to Villa Birdlake: When we enter the Villa Birdlake lane, the view was surprising and it instigated inquisitiveness to know more...
Booking: I booked family room on the Villa Birdlake website and received a call within couple of hours from the Management. During the formalities on a light note I asked it would be better to have fishing rod as my Son loves fishing...
Check-in: The management and staff were caring and the welcome was indeed "Warmth" and is something different from other hotels or resorts. Guess what, the management handed over the fishing rod to my Son and I was shocked; also, they gave bait for fishing in Hikkaduwa Lake. The happiness I saw in my Son's eyes cannot be explained through words but to be felt.
Stay: Villa Birdlake is the best place to visit in and near Hikkaduwa, if are looking for a calm and peaceful place.
Food: You can order the food from their "A la Carte" menu and you would taste good food which is value for money.
Turtle feeding: It takes 15 minutes drive to reach a wonderful location of beach, where everyday morning "Sea Turtles" come to shore where hundreds of visitors feed them with their bare hand. The experience is breath taking!
Walk through: The walk ways would give you view to one of the precious and best birds of Sri Lanka. Also, when you climb down to the lake either in the morning or evening you will spot monitor lizards...
Villa Birdlake is a unique place and one should visit to witness serenity and warmth complementing nature's love.
Room Tip: best views, clean rooms, peaceful, warmth, lovely

Response from Chrishanthi P, Owner at Villa Birdlake
Responded 19 Oct 2017
First and foremost, we want to thank you for taking your valuable time off in forwarding us a descriptive review on your stay. We at Villa Birdlake are ever so grateful to you for doing so. Adding on, it is an indescribable feeling of contentment we find in knowing that our guests found our hospitality satisfactory and found our accommodation to their expectation. As you have suggested, the misty labyrinth mud road leads to something that is quite surreal. A mix of pure Sri Lankan warmth combined with a panorama that is just out of this world. To know that we have delivered more than what you expected, makes us just feel that we have lived up to our core values. Being warm is rather a human quality.. That warmth and hospitality combined, now that is something rare. Thank you for choosing Villa Birdlake once again and we look forward to seeing you once again. Team Birdlake
