Three days ago (27 June) me and my wife headed out on a road trip and Hikkaduwa was our choice of destination of over-night stay. Upon arriving at Hikkaduwa around 4pm, we checked few places and arrived upon 'Chaaya Tranz' as well. We were greeted with a smile and upon hearing our request, we were given 2 Papaya drinks and...

Having recently returned home from the Chaaya Tranz, I must say this is one of the nicest and friendliest hotels that we have stayed at. On arrival we were greeted with warm towels followed by a welcome drink, check in was hassle free and very pleasant. The rooms are very nice and clean with pool and ocean views. The whole... More

This hotel is a really nice surprise and if you can get it during the off season you can get some amazing deals. A friend and I shared for 7 days in June at a great rate (although we didn't do the all inclusive) and everything was perfect. As far as I can tell, all the rooms are ocean view... More

I stayed in Chaaya Tranz in May 2015. The highlight of the hotel is that it is located right on the beach. The rooms are quite spacious and the balcony offered a beautiful view of the vast ocean. The pleasant sea breeze in the evenings was awesome. The ambience was perfect for a calm and relaxing holiday. The buffet dinner... More

Old rooms, poor designs, outdated facilities. Badly need a refurbishment. Good dinner and breakfast buffet - preferred more quality than quantity. Front office staff - inefficient and untrained. It took more than 1hr+ to check in and at check out they were not aware of of the room booking basis.

We visited here as two families, and both families loved the place. The check in was smooth, the rooms were spacious and had a nice balcony facing the sea. The buffet was great - but I thought the one in Cinnamon Bey (another unit of the same chain) was better with a larger variety. The staff were friendly and efficient.... More
