If you are looking for a blend of romance, rustic Srilankan architecture, in the middle of a dense forrest close to a beach and in the middle of a lake surrounded by wilderness and birds of many kinds... You just came to the right place. And yes, did I speak of hospitality? It is warm and caring. Villa Birdlake is...

I stayed at Villa Birdlake for 4 nights in the last week of Dec'16. The property is a little drive off the main road, and may take a while to locate, especially in the night. The place can look a little unassuming at first glance, but the rooms are clean, spacious (we even had an extra cot put in one...

The accommodation is directly on the lake side, about a quarter of a mile from the main road. My room had a balcony with a lake view, slightly obscured by the trees and bushes. The room was well equipped and clean. Bugs are around but that is to be expected on a lake. There were monkeys and some birds in...

This a very good and clean place, right next to the lake. Must go for bird watchers. The host is a lovely woman with sweet staff assisting her. Food is also very simple and good. We had a great few days there. The host helps in organising autos etc when asked.

2 miles from one of the worlds most beautiful beaches you will find here, at the bird-lake, the best cheap hotel in Sri Lanka. The rooms and the view from it is fantastic, the food (you have to order upfront) is amazing! Try the Prawn-curry with Drumstick-leaves! We love it!

My girlfriend and I spent our first 2 days in Hikkaduwa at Villa Birdlake. Being only 7-8 minutes away from the beach/town in tuktuk (LKR 200-250 each way) this is a great place to stay if you would rather sleep somewhere quiet, peaceful and secluded than on the beachfront. The rooms are simple but nice and have stunning private terraces...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Introducing the newest hot spot! Or rather one of the first hotels to be erected in Hikkaduwa over 35 years ago now comes with a complete makeover! The villa has been put back to its glory days! Taking you back to the 1960's, when the old fashion values were still intact. Over at Villa Bird Lake, we put your requests at the forefront and make you feel exceptionally special from the moment you walk in to our dwelling. Hospitality is not our profession. For us it’s a way of life, a passion, which is rooted into our very last vein. Situated in a suburban corner, down south in Sri Lanka, just 2 kms away from the busy Hikkaduwa town (right along the entry/exit road way to the southern express highway) we are the true essence of an escape from the usual – to a surreal world where, amidst lush foliage, one would be exposed to tranquil surroundings with a panoramic view of the Hikkaduwa Lake. Surrender yourself to the enchantment of an enriched land where wild flora and fauna cascade effortlessly into the surroundings; where myriads of different varieties of birds wander along in blissful ignorance enjoying the true pleasures of a tropical paradise. ... more   less
