About Coca - Mari Beach Villa
In every room of this breathtakingly beautiful villa in Hikkaduwa, you will find an intriguing painting of a coconut by the artist Anup Vega.
The story goes that when Ithquan, the owner of Coco-Mari was on a safari trip to Yala and many other rural parts of Sri Lanka off the beaten track on a fourteen day tour many moons ago, his friend and renowned artist Anup Vega who joined him on the trip, was asked by Ithquan’s beloved wife to make a painting for her. What Anup Vega eventually came up with was an intriguing paintingof a coconut and subsequently he did a range of them, Ithquan purchased the remaining and held on to them closely for years and when the idea to build a villa by the beach came to him, these paintings were the inspiration for its name. The villa surrounded by coconuts was aptly named Coco-Mari and being the family man he is, the second part of the name is part of his daughter’s first name.
Ithquan’s interior designer wife lovingly designed the villa and her personal touch has made the property exceptionally homely and its patrons often call it a home away from home.
The property was in fact first built as a home for Ithquan and his family, when he discovered the recuperating effects of living by the beach following a bleak period in his life back in 2007. Ithquan wanted to then share the joy of living by the beach with others and so opened up the property to the public.
Coco-Mari’s day to day operations is run by Anura who has been with Coco-Mari since its inception and will make your stay at the villa as pleasant as he possibly can. He is a man of many talents and will wear many hats, be it the one of chef, concierge or the butler. Coco-Mari promises to make your stay by the beach very special.
