The property near Bentota is very nice and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and have a balcony which is very comfortable and usable. The buffet breakfast also has a wide spread though the quality is average.

Having travelled around a great expanse of Sri Lanka in a short time frame, my friend and I cancelled our booking at another place and opted for something a little special for our last few days. We were however faced with an awfully long check in of over 2 hours, when they weren't actually busy and an extremely rude service... More

I was very disappointed by this hotel. This is one of the dearer hotels I have stayed in and expected the facilities and service to reflect the price, not so. We arrived prior to the 2pm check in and were offered a twin room, we advised we were happy to wait for a double, however after waiting until 2:30 they... More

I visited this place a few days back as part of a company organized retreat. The hotel had a strict 2pm check in policy which meant we were forced to wait for almost half a day since we had arrived in Colombo at around 4am. The rooms were neat, the breakfast and dinner buffet menus were just about the same... More

It started with a bad check in experience and did not get in room until an hour after check in time. Rooms have a great view but are dated and not four star. Hotel is in a great location, in the middle of Hikkaduwa strip. Grounds are nice, pool is okay and beach is great. A good breakfast is on... More

By all accounts, this is reputed to be the best hotel in Hikkaduwa. Likely true, but it really demonstrates how far Sri Lanka has to go in their tourism industry. We selected Hikkaduwa as we are keen snorkelers, and Hikkaduwa is supposed to have a nice reef, and we selected Chaaya Tranz based on our experience with Cinnamon Hotels in... More

This is a resort with quite a lot of rooms so with quite a large number of guests. I wouldn't call this a luxury resort but not bad for 4 star, especially considering this is Sri Lanka. The best thing about the hotel itself is the staff were quite friendly and helpful. The pool area is large and has access... More
