We had the most wonderful time at the Boat house, Dickwella. The three days we spent at the Boat House with four kids was very enjoyable. The villa is new, specious, comfortable, exquisitely furnished and is located near a beautiful beach/ bay near Dickwella town. The food and the service we received from Elaine, Prince and the staff was absolute gold. They made us feel welcome,comfortable and were very accommodating to all our needs during our stay. The kids enjoyed the large pool and close proximity to the beach. A big thank you to the Boat House team.
We spent a night with friends here. Awesome place, very private and just perfect for the family! A must for a family break!
What a fabulous place I loved loved every moment!!!
From our arrival into the two villas - boat house we had such a welcoming arrival. That staff where so friendly and had a lovely midnight meal waiting for us after our long journey. The rooms where so delicate and inviting along with their rest of the Villa with its family feel yet so luxurious. We enjoyed so many lovely meals by our personal chef and he could arrange anything we asked for. Along with having pince the house manager if anything was needed he would make sure it world be arrange, a very attentive young man indeed.
There is near by local shopping if you fancy a walk around... but it is local !! If you want a bit more arrange a driver to take you to ( can't remember the name ) fort about 1 hrs drive for some fab shopping and food. Close to the villa is a fantastic sure beach where you can learn to surf, stand up paddle board or just go for a swim or snorkelling. I didn't do any of this but enjoy a chilled meal in a very laid back beach bar watching the waves and people.
Thanks for a fantastic holiday and I look forward to coming back.
I have just returned from an absolutely fantastic trip to The Boat House, one of the 2Villas. It was just spectacular. It has been so well designed both inside and out. From outside you can literally just relaxe on a sun lounger by the pool, and look out over the water across to the sea. You can hear the ocean from the house. It is blissful.
The interior is so special. It has been designed to such a high standard. Ultra modern but a mix of colonial meets modern minamalism. The concrete bar in the house was a favourite point for us to hang out at as we were a group of ladies lucky enough to escape home together for a few days, but the villa would also be ideal for a family with the lovely sitting areas downstairs as well as another living area upstairs where kids could easily escape their parents!
The villa is a 5 minute drive from a really chilled, surfers beach which was also fun to visit, especially worth it if you want to try a spot of surfing. I think they also do yoga here.
I must also say that the staff were also so helpful. In particular Prince, the Boat House day to day manager, who was there to meet our every need, no matter what time of day. The food was also seriously delicious. In particular the BBQ lobster, chicken and prawns! Yum. I just hope I have a chance to go back. Next time I will bring my family! Thank you Boat House!!
The grounds of this recently completed beautiful villa lead directly onto the beach of the stunning bay in Dikwella. The wide verandahs, balcony and fans give a colonial feel and the modern interior design and air conditioning give you every comfort. The family make it feel like a home from home, but with an on site staff who will give you a great welcome and provide delicious meals of local fresh food, specializing in seafood (lobsters, prawns and tuna) freshly caught that day. Add to this a beatuful 25 m. pool and you have all you could want for a perfect, relaxing holiday. We stayed a week - but it should have been two!
I stayed at Two Villas with my husband, son and my son's partner. We had a wonderful stay. The staff were fantastic. The food was cooked perfectly. We ate our evening meal on the veranda whilst watching the fishing boats go out for their night catch. it was perfect.
All you could ask for in a full service villa that sits on the beach.
This is a lovely villa with large bedrooms and a superb open plan living area that goes out to the patio by the pool. It is right on the beach of an idyllic, sandy, palm fringed bay. The staff a were polite, professional and the food was excellent, definitely the best Sri Lankan curries and seafood i had throughout my trip.
