Comfortable sun chairs are available by the pool and there is a restaurant and bar right above the beach. The brakfast didn't offer as many dishes as the...

You can swim just as the front of the hotel (the waves stronger, next to the boat) and in 300 meters on both sides: on the left - the lagoon, turtles, even further - surfer beach, right - fish. Good location of the hotel...

This hotel is a good compromise for accommodation in HIkkaduwa. It is located right above the beach and within walking distance of numerous restaurants and bars. The rooms are a good size and clean.

This hotel is in a great location right on the beach. There is no lift in case you don't like walking upstairs. The breakfast is simple but comprehensive with some great curry dishes as well as European style, fruit and eggs. Friendly and obliging staff close to plenty of restaurants.
