My conclusion for this hotel (after i comfort rooms show have): Bay definitely a comfort room! These are on a level you for a 3 star hotel expected or even a little better. The standard rooms are for three stars in Sri Lanka also good, but a german tourists only very partially happy. ; ) Otherwise there was about the hotel …  read hotel review

    The transfer from the airport to the hotel took 3.5 hours. By the newly built highway, this but reduce. The hotel is right on the beach. Left and right of it you had the opportunity to baden. The place hikkaduwa is very lively but still comfortable. Restaurants, supermarket and shops are located in the immediate vicinity. The main street is right behind the hotel, as at the other hotels on the coast. Bus, train and tuk-tuk are also in direct proximity.

    The hotel is located directly on the sea. One has a wonderful view from the hotel and garden on the sea. To the right and on the left you can directly at the sea to the beautiful beaches are. Just towel from the hotel along. A relatively large supermarket is directly opposite the hotel. The bus stop is a few more meters away. The train station is within a few minutes to reach. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. We dared with the regular bus after galle to drive. It costs 35 Rupees and takes about 40 minutes. The bus ends in galle right office away at the bus station. Nearby you will find also a tsunami museum and 2 smaller lakes. As we had a tour, we only with a local leaders the actual village with its fruits, animals, and so on. Looked at. On sunday morning always with the station a worth seeing market.

    The staff was very friendly. Some spoke german, even our 'cleaner'. Our first room had a good location-direct view of the see -, but smelled very unpleasantly and was a little dingy, we were immediately a new room promised. We had however to the first night in the room, as we also only around 9:30 a. m. arrived at the hotel. Our 2. room was in the 2, floor and we had an even better view. , the bathroom had a window. The air conditioning was even, if we were not in the room. The cups were however only with a cloth wiped out. We have the cups then rather after use itself ausgwischt.

    The restaurant was after three sides to be desired, but with strong wind or rain (we were in september as) with plastic tarpaulins closed. The meals were very varied and tasteful. If the local cuisine tastes not so good, could also different potatoes and vegetables to choose. However, there were no real Cola, only a ' kik -Cola'. The soft drinks such as Cola, Sprite or soda costs 150 Rupees. A small bottle of water 50 Rupees. It was always swept and wiped the tables, the placemat material were only shook out and used several times. Many men in shorts, partly even with swimming trunks, for dinner.

Hotel Information

Information from the hotel

Information from the hotel *

  • Location
    The hotel is located in the small fishing village of Hikkaduwa, approximately 2 hours south of Colombo on Sri Lanka's south coast. The train station is about 2 km away. The village of Hikkaduwa offers inexpensive shopping and restaurants and the larger town of Galle is less than an hour away.
  • One of the top properties in Hikkaduwa, this property is a good choice for those wishing to stay on the south coast but away from larger resorts. The beach hotel consists of a total of 64 rooms. Facilities include a lobby, room and laundry services, and a car park. Guests can wine and dine in the bar and restaurant.
  • Guests overlook the Indian Ocean from their balcony or terrace. All of the rooms feature an individual design that allows guests to enjoy the natural setting. The rooms offer guests a comfortable space of their own to enjoy the beauty of Hikkaduwa. Each room is en suite, whilst further in-room amenities include a TV, radio, minibar and individually regulated air conditioning.
  • The hotel arranges snorkelling excursions for its guests and helps guests book diving trips that catch the highlights of the southern coast. PADI certification courses are also available. Guests are asked to contact the resort for recommendations. The resort also features an outdoor swimming pool.
  • Guests can dine on the freshest seafood. The hotel's culinary director and staff seek out the individual desires of each guest, ensuring them a personalised dining experience that outshines the buffets or one-menu-suits-all approach found in many restaurants.
