We arrived in Hikkaduwa with no prearranged accommodation. We dropped our bags at a restaurant and went searching. We were delighted to find the Turtles Rest. The building itself is beautiful with fantastic views out the back. Room 7 was spacious with A/C and hot water. We slept so well here listening to the waves crashing at night. There are... More

+Nice, clean rooms +The guy who welcomed us was extremely friendly. He gave us a cheaper price and some advice what to see nearby. Location is at the end of Hikkaduwa beach, towards Narigama beach. The beach near the guesthouse is not nice, but its not a long walk to Narigama beach. -No hot water -The restaurant is not cheap,... More

ideal place to stay in when visiting Hikkaduwa. its right on the strip and has beach access. they are currently in the process of adding more rooms but for the moment they offer beach front rooms at a much lower rate than most of the other inns in the area. also the food is very good

The A/C was not working. which was inconvenient but me and my friends (4 of us in total) didnt want to spoil our... More

We had just landed in Hikkaduwa and one of the first places we landed in was Curry Bowl. The rooms are neat and clean but AC in the room we had taken, was not working. The non-AC rooms looked quite ventilated. Didnt have a chance to have the food as it didnt look quite appealing, but the view from the... More

II stayed at the Curry Bowl several years running before the tsunami. It was a great place to stay; right by the beach, friendly staff, reasonable prices and great food. I thought the tsunami had been particularly bad on that part of the coast, and that this charming hotel must have been swept away; but I saw someone else's review... More

We decided to take a risk and stay at curry bowl, despite not being able to find any reviews on this place. But the name itself sounding promising. We had to call to make a booking which was quite interesting with the language barrier, as they have no email or website. I think the Manager liked it this way, and... More
