"For anyone thinking of spending some time in Sri Lanka the advice I have is don't hesitate! The country is stunning the people are fantastic the food is to die for and if you want a quiet bungalow with your own private beach in one of the not so commercial tourist towns in the South, Villa Hibiscus in Weligama is an unbelievable find. It has fantastic snorkeling and safe swimming at the end of the garden, stilt fishermen in the distance, a staff of five at your beg and call with the most delicious rice & curry meals imaginable and all at a reasonable price - what an unbelievable place! Oh and surfing for my boys and a local village just down the road." TR 2011
