The property is right on the beach with a beautiful view of the sea! The staff were friendly, service was great, rooms are clean. We had the breakfast buffet and the food was pretty good for a buffet. The restaurant has a great view, overlooking the pool and the sea. Overall a great spot in Hikkaduwa.

Chaaya is the branch of cinnamon hotels, very very beautiful place. Nice food. along the sea side so the view is super amazing. You can dine out if you want to sit really close to the sea. Good ambiance

We stayed for one night. Definitely would have loved to stay for 2 nights but unfortunately I had work the next day :(. No complaints at all. The room walls and ceiling could use some touch-ups but it didn't bother us. Internet speed was OK but can improve.

Our experience at this hotel was perfect from start to finish. We booked 2 rooms for 10 nights. The location is stunning and completely relaxing from the moment you leave the busy Galle Road outside and enter the calm oasis of the lobby and grounds. The staff are simply amazing.

Stayed here for one night before going on to Colombo prior to our flights back with my wife. Very big hotel - nice/safe/great pool and beachfront. The only thing that kept me from rating this 5 stars is that the room was a little dated/the hotel seemed old. The balcony was great but hot & stuffy (no fan) even after... More

I can only recommend this hotel :-) Spending 10 days there, very friendly personnel (hello Samanta :-)), delicious food, beautiful sea and beaches. Rooms have A/C and service 2 x a day. I do not have any negative notes. I hope we will visit this area again in future.
