Singlehandedly the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Pure luxury. The rooms, the food, the lobbies, all the staff - all excellent. Fantastic location right on the very clean beach. Definitely 5 star all round. We were made to feel special for our entire 5 night stay and were upgraded to a designer suite. Honestly the most luxurious room we've ever encountered. The ultimate honeymoon suite - even though we were not on honeymoon! The breakfast is a la carte and fantastic - especially the granola yogurt. We had dinner in the restaurants and room service - both excellent. The sea bass, steak and pork belly were our favourite choices. The Japanese roof top restaurant is also excellent and chilled out. The Manager Rockshi was so attentive to our every need, even the ones we didn't know we have, offering natural health tips. Definitely stay at this hotel - you will not regret it and will not want to leave. We are very sad to no longer be there and will be returning as soon as we can.

The hotel staff acts very weird showing no respect to their guests. We especially came to this hotel beforehand and asked if we can come the next day and buy a day pass to spend a day by the pool. But! The next morning the hotel manger Indigo didn’t even let us in because the hotel suddenly became full. Even if it so, it was definitely not our problem that the hotel staff was not well informed upon their availability the day before. This is not the way a proper hotel management should treat their guests. Felt like in a low level guesthouse.

We've been in Sri Lanka for 5 weeks, visited nearly every city, cheap and expensive hotels and BNBs but the only time when it was impossible to drink alcohol is at NY 2022 party at Riff. Very strange decision to provide unlimited cheap boose at NY Party in the most expensive hotel in Hikkaduwa :) We were ready to pay for normal cocktails but it wasn't just available at NY night, only cheap awful cocktails. Very very strange decision.

The Riff in Hikkaduwa makes every effort to make your stay memorable. Rockshi the sales and marketing manager is exemplary and a true professional. All staff in this hotel welcomes you and provides excellent customer service. The food is fantastic. Make sure you visit the Japanese restaurant on the roof top. Watch the amazing sunset and eat the best sushi. We will be back here on our next visit to Sri Lanka.

We were stayed for 15 nights from end of November and beginning of December 2021 . We had the most fantastic stay at the Hotel. The amenities, helpfulness of one and all, comfort levels, privacy, Our room was nice and amazing ocean View 😍 We stayed manny of different 5 star hotels in Sri Lanka, and came to the Riff just to have a cup of coffee. Understandably wait for the coffee so we decided to expore the property and came across to the room, requested if we can have breakfast oat with soya milk while we wait for the coffee to be ready from then onwards chef Pradeep for 15 days looked after us so so well, we are gratefull to him. We had breakfast and dinner always at the main Restaurant near the pool, literally everyday and chef Pradeep and restaurant team treated us with respect and care and made our all dining experiences memorable ones. And Asoka and security team done a great job, also front office team make us feel like a home, and the housekeeping was very helpful(Amath darshana and he’s team) the Balinese massage at the hotel was really great 😎 I suggest and recommend for all, the best hotel I have ever stay in Sri lanka 🇱🇰 we had the most enjoyable time and hopefully return soon 😍 Marry Christmas 🎄 and happy new year for all in advance, cheers 🥂 Kumara and Oksana
