This immacutely presented hotel is situated away from the hustle and bustle of Hikkaduwa in a peaceful lagoonside location. Guests can enjoy the pristine swimming pool, make use of the expansive book and dvd collection (dvd players in rooms) and dine at the exceptional hotel restaurant (Sri Lankan food is the star here but also do very good Western menu). Attention to detail is second to none- from welcome drinks on arrival to fresh flowers in the rooms and attentive waiting service from friendly staff.

Room Tip: Jasmine room.

we stayed here last summer for 5 nights at the end of our 3 week holiday. it was very restful after lots of traveling around. we really enjoyed the lovely rooms, delicious food and very relaxing pool. Tanya and Dale were great hosts and very helpful organizing tuk tuks for us to the beach, galle and other things to do and see in the local area which were of interest to us. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. We all agreed the breakfasts were amazing! A family with 2 sons 11 and 14 who really enjoyed the pool.

Room Tip: good room for a family - has double bedroom and twin bedroom and a balcony

Beautifully located in quiet countryside with views over a lagoon, Asian Jewel is an excellent choice for a peaceful view days, with an informal friendly atmosphere, staff and really good food. The rooms were lovely and the pool immaculate. Asolutely no problems, we were made very welcome by Dale and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Also like to mention Rock Travel who drove us around during the holiday and were absolutely first class.

I did not have the pleasure of staying overnight at the hotel, but yesterday a group of 8 of us showed up to enjoy the pool, have a few drinks and dinner.

We arrived unannounced, and were received very nicely by Dale and his staff. We sat by the pool, had drinks for a few hours, which were very reasonably priced and the staff was very attentive to our needs.

I was really impressed by the decor of the place, it's really cosy with a lot of unique extra touches to the furnishings and landscaping that give extra charm.

Everyone I was with have been in Hikkaduwa a long time (3-4 months each at least) and were really impressed by the variety and uniqueness of the menu. Almost every beachside restaurant in Hikkaduwa has all the SAME dishes, so it is really surprising to have such a large menu with so many different options that really aren't available almost anywhere else. Everyone looking at the menu took about 30 minutes to decide because so much of it looked good. I had the Asian Jewel Pork Fillet, which was actually probably one of the best and well rounded meals I have in the last few months.

We only sat by the pool, but there is also a really nice inside lounge area with pool table, couches, tv and large DVD collection, so it would also be a nice place to relax and watch a movie one evening.

I read the one (and the ONLY one) negative review about the place with concern to noise pollution from the road and whoever wrote that must have spent no time in Hikkaduwa, This was one of the quietest spots i've ever been here and even remarked that to my friend at one point.

If you stay anywhere beachside in the town the noise from the trains and the constant traffic on Galle Road is easily 10 times as loud. I couldn't hear any traffic whatsoever from where we were

Dale took us on a tour of a few rooms after dinner and they were really nice and extremely clean.

Already planning to spend another afternoon there soon...

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and I am glad we chose to stay here, it's a few mins from town but I was glad of that. The rooms were lovely, clean and tidy, with a lovely balcony view overlooking the lagoon. The pool area was lovely and very relaxing. The staff were all super lovely and friendly. Dale the owner is a great guy, who is friendly and helpful and your comfort is priority for him. The restaurant serves fabulous food, the Sri Lankan special curry was spectacular, the flavours and spices were excellent and they are honestly serving one of the best dahls I have ever tasted, and I have tasted many! The prawn curry, fresh crab etc were delicious as were the breakfasts. They also have Western foods too! This boutique hotel was secure, relaxing, charming and great value. I really loved staying here and would stay again, we rented a moped and went off exploring too, which was fantastic. Suki the dog is also a little gem. Asian jewel just has a lovely feel, and I think Mr Cambridge below must have been reviewing another hotel! This place is just lovely! Best in hikkaduwa..

As you can see from the glowing testimonials on this site, this is an excellent hotel in its price range which covers pretty much all the bases.

I stayed for two nights as a solo traveller, though this is an especially great hotel for couples or families. Very nice welcome, room was lovely and almost spotless, although bath and windows hadn't been cleaned. No biggie since I wasn't gonna use that huge bath anyway. Nice balcony, too.

The hotel has a nice chilled atmosphere, occasional sound of music from somewhere across the lagoon, but no big deal. Breakfast was excellent, and the restaurant serves excellent Sri Lankan and western choices including tasty burgers which pretty much beat any burger I've had in Asia including a gourmet burger joint in Tokyo.

Pool area is super, a great place to do...nothing! And the pool itself is fab and scrupulously clean. The grounds are well-manicured, it's a shame the locals can't take a leaf out of owner Dale's book and clean up their country (same as Cambodia) because Sri Lankans generally don't seem environmentally conscious and are completely blind to the plastic and trash which is littering many of their beaches and rural areas. Shame.

Large selection of dvds which you can take to play in your room, I had one nice movie night when it was raining too much to go out.

The staff are very attentive and friendly, easily the nicest I had in Sri Lanka. What a relief to get away from the hard sell for two nights.

In short, this is a super boutique, safe and secure with great service and yes it's more pricey than others, but you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: There isn't really a bad room.
