This is a small time boutique hotel with amazingly comfortable rooms Facing the Indian Ocean. The interior is just beautiful and unique. The food is a must try in this place and is the best we tried in Hikkaduwa. The service is very welcoming and personal.

My wife and I spent 3 amazing days (2 nights) at Roman Beach. We came here, after our 3 night stay at their sister resort Roman Lake (which is extremely beautiful and relaxing in its own way). This hotel was in a perfect location (away from the busy Hikkaduwa town), offering abundant privacy and seclusion for its customers. They food... More

I actually stayed there back in 2012 shortly after it opened and it was without a doubt the warmest, friendliest hotel during our 2 week trip. The staff were exceptional and the food was excellent. I can't say enough about this place other than look no further for a couples hotel. Didn't have kids with us so can't say how... More

Really cosy, clean and quiet. Great rooms and view with all the needed facilities. Has access to beach and the walk down coast is amazing. Also the food was by far one of the best places to eat in the area. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

From the minute we arrived here we knew were somewhere special. Lakshan and the staff couldn't do enough to help us, they were above and beyond what you would expect. We asked for coconuts and in 10 minutes it had been cut off the tree and with a straw in it for us.....that's customer service!! The rooms are gorgeous....spacious, clean,... More

A pleasant hotel in a nice location and right on the beach. The rooms were comfortable enough with very large bathrooms. There are only 6 rooms so the place does not feel overcrowded. The food was excellent and well prepared by the chef. The menu is small, but diverse, and the staff are flexible when it came to slight changes... More

We have tried meals in many places in Hikkaduwa but this was exceptional from Dinner to lunch the next day. Even the rice and curry served... More

Even after reading all of the excellent reviews, I was still pleasantly surprised by this little gem in Hikkaduwa -- so much so that this was my second stay at Roman Beach! The rooms and decor are modern and very tastefully done. The Sri Lankan breakfast with appam and fresh juices was the highlight of my daily dining experience and... More
