The rooms were perfectly... More

The Hug inn is very attentive both before and throughout your stay. The rooms are basic but clean, there were some minor issues with having to re-set the toilet flush but did this not impact our stay. The location of Hug Inn is superb for the beach and has a good variety of sunbeds and cabanas. The only downside, as... More

We paid 1750 RF / (2 pax) for dahl, beets, tuna sambal, poppadams, long beans and seafood curry. Everything was prepared from a scratch so it took over an hour (understandable and we were noted beforehand) and the taste of the food was nice (and best in Hikkaduwa) but overall the price is way too high as we had 13...

We had a dinner in the Hug inn based on recommendations in Tripadvisor. Hikkaduwa is expensive compared to other places in Sri Lanka, but here we had fairly good value for our money when ordering rice and curry for two with 1750 Rufiees. Food was tastier than other places we ate and service was personal and friendly. I can recommend... More

Had a fantastic curry ( set deal for two) with a wait of 45 min because freshly prepared! In addition delicious papaya and avocado lassi. Very good food, friendly service and... More

We were staying at hug in for 5 days, so we tried almost everything from their menu. We have to say that it was the best food we tried in Hikkaduwa (tandoori chicken, tai wok, wraps, sandwiches, burgers, fish etc.). The family that owns the guesthouse and the restaurant is sweet and very hospitable. The restaurant is on the beach... More
