Nestled along the coast of Hikkaduwa lies Villa Saffron, an architecturally striking building designed by one of Sri Lanka’s most renowned architects, C.Anjalendran.
Sri Lanka’s first beach destination along the south coast to emerge as a popular tourist hotspot in the 1970s, Hikkaduwa is known for it’s buzzing charm and all embracing approach to visitors from across the world.
Although the centre of town is renowned for it’s vibrant nightlife, Villa Saffron is perched on the quieter end of the stretch which is more of a peaceful haven- suitable for all kinds of travellers from solo, couples to larger groups of family or friends.
Each of the 5 rooms are unique, with 2 suites upstairs including the master ‘Saffron Suite’ complete with a balcony jacuzzi overlooking the pool and sea.
From traditional Sri Lankan cuisine to their signature burger, pasta and seafood dishes, each option is equally delicious and as it’s a boutique hotel, can be individually tailored with ease.
