Galle bungalow description

'Thilina' is a well-equipped and comfortable detached bungalow located 3 km from the scenic, palm-fringed beaches of Hikkaduwa, a busy tourist metropolis on the south coast.

'Thilina' is a peaceful retreat located in a tranquil glade about 30 yards from the main house where the Sri Lankan family who will be hosting your stay live.

Cooked breakfast served daily on the verandah included.

Transport from/to Colombo International Airport:

The head of the Sri Lankan family, Udaya, who lives in the main house near to bungalow 'Thilina', operates a tour guide/transport/excursion service with his 4WD vehicle and, should you wish, he can collect you from Colombo international airport (Bandaranaike International Airport at Katunayake) on your arrival and take you straight to Hikkaduwa. At the end of your stay, he can also return you to the airport.

The distance from the airport to Hikkaduwa is about 130 kms and the journey can take up to 3 hours at peak traffic times, although the opening of the Southern Highway (the first highway in Sri Lanka) in November 2011 has reduced the time. The one-way charge for pick up at the airport is Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR) 9,000 (approx £45); the one-way charge for drop-off at the airport is Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR) 8,500 (approx £40).

Any tours of the island can also be arranged and conducted by Udaya according to your chosen itinerary and duration.

Welcome Pack:
For your arrival, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, two bottles of water and a box of biscuits are provided.

                  Hikkaduwa lies at the heart of the palm-fringed South coast, conveniently placed for the historic town of Galle. This small beach resort sprang to prominence as a favourite haunt in the Sixties backpacker trail. It is now showing signs of regaining its youthful, informal feel, with one of the best surfing beaches in Sri Lanka, a good scattering of decent beachside bars (particularly lively at weekends), restaurants, night clubs and great-value fish restaurants. The Kosgoda turtle hatchery and Sinharaja rain forest are among nearby attractions.

                  About 20km from Hikkaduwa is Galle, the most important town in the south. Its Dutch fort area, with its ramparts, encloses some wonderful examples of colonial architecture. The diving season along the south coast is November to April and Hikkaduwa has the best diving schools. International surfing championships in November are a special attraction.
