The hotel is located right next to the reef and has a great pool. It has all the facilities. The service is a little slow, but is understandable given the expanse of the hotel. The balcony next to the room is huge and a great place to hang out to watch the sunset ( as well as dry your bathing... More

Good food, friendly staff, comfortable, cozy and nicely maintained rooms and most of all, nearby sea where you can walk in the morning watching small fish and sea cucumber etc and spend hours just watching them - that it self is wonderful and beyond imagination. Local crowds coming in groups can be too noisy and a nuisance in and around... More

This is a huge hotel, with very good service. It has extensive grounds, lots of loungers, a very nice pool and is situated on the beach. The Indian Ocean is fantastic, but must be treated with respect! The restaurant was the outstanding part of this hotel. The breakfasts were huge buffets, with anything anyone could want, but dinners in the... More

We spent one night at the Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa Hotel. The Checking in process was a bit longer than necessary. The rooms were clean and comfortable - a little tired but not a problem gine the price. We stayed in rooms 127 & our sons stayed in 129. Both overlooked the pool and beach. The buffet breakfast was extensive and... More

A very BEAUTIFUL destination after hopping from city to another in 5 days. We arrived at Colombo , stayed one night before the rest of the group arrived. We hired a driver and visited Anuradhapura, Kandy, Sigiriya and pollunaruwa ! Beautiful country for backpacking and Chaya hotel was the cherry on the top.

Well they rest ethos hotel as 3 star plus. The plus bit must be the warm and friendly staff and the nice entrance and restaurant facilities. The room is where the three star bit comes in. They are a bit tired and could do with a total refurbishment. They are adequate and comfortable. Our bathroom flooded the first time we... More

This was our last stop in Srilanka. We wanted to experience its coast and wind down after a 7 day tour. And Chaaya Tranz, Hikkaduwa was just the right place for it. Right from the rooms to the variety of amazing food, to the beach and the fun feeding turtles, it was enjoyable. We stayed in the chaya hotel chain... More

Just got back from 2 weeks at the Chaaya Tranz and feel totally relaxed. It was a lovely time. The staff in particular are very friendly, attentive and so nice and deserve some recognition as it was their efforts that made the experience special.

I had read mixed reviews of this hotel. We enjoyed 6 nights here after touring Sri Lanka. This is probably the best hotel in Hikkaduwa. Beach location, rooms with balcony views, excellent frontage with large swimming pool, pool bar with good food and abundance of sun beds. You literally can step onto the beach from the pool area where beautiful... More
