About the property

House in Hikkaduwa, Galle, Sri Lanka - Beach Restaurants And Surfing Just A Short Walk Away Or Just Relax By The Pool

“Villa Wardhana,” built in 1936, is an idyllic, ideally positioned luxury property. Recent restorations have elevated the house to a refined, modern villa, the perfect location for relaxation and recreation.

The interiors, exteriors, and surrounding attractions of “Villa Wardhana” are all equally appealing. Inside, the house is divided into 2 distinct living areas by a central courtyard containing a cosy sitting area and idyllic fish-pond thriving with vibrant koi fish. There are 3 main double bedrooms, each featuring grand king-sized four-poster beds and attached ensuites, as well as 2 loft style bedrooms. The large kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and equipment.

The exterior is no less impressive. The property gardens are well-maintained, lush lawns and foliage complementing perfectly the fantastic paved pool area. The sapphire water, the soothing, muted colours of the pavers, and vibrant emerald greenery combine to create a picturesque tropical paradise. This area is as functional as it is attractive, the poolside experience enhanced by umbrellas and a BBQ.

Should a resident ever be compelled to leave this fantastic house, “Villa Wardhana” is surrounded by the best Sri Lankan experiences. The house is set back from the coast road and is a short walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and a surf break. The town of Galle and its famous cricket ground and heritage-listed fort is only 19 km away, as are many other top class local attractions.

This property is ideal for a family of up to 8 or up to 4 couples who are looking for an idyllic, hassle-free and relaxing holiday by the beach.

About Klaus Gohra

I am an Australian living in Singapore. A keen surfer with a long association with Sri Lanka and the region.

"Villa Wardhana" was a project designed to create a great family environment where my family and friends could meet regularly to enjoy Hikkaduwa's laid back lifestyle in a private and relaxing setting.

Klaus Gohra purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Klaus Gohra chose Hikkaduwa

Historical bungalow close to the beach

What makes this bungalow unique

A relaxing and peaceful garden area with a sprawling house and a pool.

The house is minutes to the beach, a great pizza bar only minutes away as well as beach bars for evening sunsets.

My good friend Ranjith and his family looks after the house in Hikkaduwa and manages the day to day running of the bungalow and provides excellent local advice as well as daily food deliveries, etc.

Wonderful villa in Hikkaduwa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 fabulous days in Wardhana - the villa is lovely, the location couldn't be better and everyone was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The villa is very close to the beach where there are plenty of laid back restaurants serving delicious food and bars as well. Not too many people at the beach, comfy individual huts to snooze and read. Perfect for sun bathers, surfers and also sundowners during the gorgeous sunsets! A great Italian coffee bar and yoga studio nearby. In the evenings we hung out in the pool, and even had our own barbie on our last night. I'll be back!

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Wardhana: In one sentence, 'Its simply the best place for a quality family holiday'. The couple that maintains the place therein (Ranjith and Chandrani) are really a nice couple and they actually make the experience that much more memorable.
