“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I stayed in Cove House, three years ago, and was extremely happy. Staying at Cove cottage did not disappoint. I loved the secluded jungle feel of the cottage and the sophisticated decor and accommodations made it feel more like a 4 Seasons bungalow. I am so happy I discovered this hidden gem!!!

“An Amazing Secret Gem!”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Tucked away from the main tourist traps in Southern Sri Lanka, lies the most beautiful, charming little villa. I travelled with my boyfriend and another couple and stayed for 4 nights.

We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay... From the hassle-free transfer from Colombo, the fresh pineapple juice on arrival, the above-par cleanliness and of course, the incredibly friendly, super helpful staff that were more than happy to go above duty to ensure our stay was nothing short of amazing. The food was ABSOLUTELY, insanely fabulous; we ordered our meals every morning and Roman went to the market each day to buy ingredients.

We were sad to leave and our accommodation later in our trip did not even compare to Little Cove. Dickwella beach, a one-minute walk from the villa, served all our surfing and relaxing needs, and we really enjoyed hanging out with a drink at the beach bar down on the beach.

We will most definitely be back and would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends. Thank you again to the amazing staff who made our stay in Sri Lanka memorable and enjoyable! x

“Awesome place in real paradise”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in January 2015

One of the most beautiful places i have ever been. Nice staff, helpful manager, delicious food, beautiful garden - made for relax :) and stunning beach of course. The Little Cove is nice, clean, comfortable with extraordinary bathroom full of plant - really amazing and provides free WiFi. Ideal for romantic holiday (or honeymoon) - I know what I am talking about... :-))

“Villa with a pool in the most calm beautiful place in down south”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the 21 st century i went to the centuries back in Sri Lankan history since the nice collection of antiques in this nice place. The other most important feature is the pool which is surrounded by the natural scenery. I felt im in a pond in a natural jungle. Im pretty sure once you visit the place you will feel the relaxation in the environment.

“Best exclusive holiday ”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Little Cove is best villa what you can find in south province off Sri Lanka. Superb unique style villa with tropical garden all around the villa. Super swimming pool at front and WiFi connection everywhere. We found there most relaxed luxury holiday, helpful staff make you feel like in home or even better. Ocean just around the corner and most stunning beach what I saw, great for surfers.
