Reviewing this hotel as still residing in Room No 119. The Check In was quick and Malsha at front desk was very helpful to get us the room of our choice inspite the hotel being full.

This Hotel i believe has one of the best location and a superb pool overlooking the ocean... Tried the buffet dinner the spread and preperation was quiet impressive and the staff was always ready to help with a smiling face.

And lastly thank you Mr.Chiminda - Resident Manager for the extended hospitality.....

Spa and breakfast not yet tried hence cannot comment but i am sure that it would be at par to the other services offered

We visited Chaaya Tranz last August, Our family party consisted of two adults and four children aged from 16 to seven. We had a superb time there as it came at the end of a seven day trip around Sri Lanka we were ready for some chill out time. The facilities were newly refurbished, modern and clean. The location by the beach is superb and we spent some time in the sea with the wild turtles just outside the hotel. The range and quality of the food was definitely the best we experienced on our trip.
We arrived as a last minute booking as we had to change accommodation while in country due to a problem with the previous hotel and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
I have no hesitation in recommending this property as a destination worthy of the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka. A trip to the tsumani museum and monument is a sobering but very worthwhile experience - it made all of us appreciate our good fortune all the more.

Could only spare two nights to go to Chaaya. One look at the car park we knew it was packed to the rafters with holiday makers :)) We were shown to the rooms personally after a speedy check in. Room was clean and spacious with a small balcony and a cement lounger with colorful over staffed cushions. Meals were use fantastic. The best seats would be closer to the windows where you do not get a lot of foot traffic if you are there on a full day and small kids do not bang on the table ends or get underfoot.
One night was a presentation of International grill with lots of smoky meats. Rice and pasta dishes were good as well as the impressive salad table. This would seriously be a place we would go to see what the chef cooks up the next time.

Room Tip: Not over the pool as it gets to be pretty loud if you are on lower floors

We have just returned from a 3 day trip to Hikkaduwa. We stayed at the Chaaya Tranz. Overall we were happy with the hotel. Check in was quick and easy.Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Service was good as well. Good choice of restaurants at the hotel but be careful when ordering wine.Twive my Wife ordered a glass of wine which was then not available but the recommended option was nearly twice the price which we felt was a possible scam.
Pool is very good as well as the waiters who work there.
Mainly Russian guests at this hotel.We hired a driver for 2 days and he took us all over Sri Lanka taking us to places of interest. Galle Fort,the Tsunami museum and the turtle hatchery were particularly good to see. He did this for around $40 and waited for us for as long as needed so it worked out at $5 an hour for everything.We have his contact details if anyone is interested.He also picks up and drops off at the airport in Colombo.His English is very very good.

My family visited this hotel during the Oct holiday.
The hotel have a beautiful sea view despite the beach is full of rocks/stones.

The swimming pool is lovely and my kids really enjoyed it.
I was expecting a 4 star hotel service however - some staffs were unfriendly and unprofessional.
It was seriously shortage of staffs during the breakfast time hence it took more than 10 minutes to get my coffee and long line waiting for the omelet.
Once, a waitress came and told us we were not entitled for the lunch after explanations and asked her to double check with the reception she returned and apologized.
I was a bit anoint as there were many minor incidents like that (it doesn't match up to a 4 stars hotel standard).

Certainly, the hotel rate is over priced.

- The hotel is using internet TV channels and I have hard time using it.
- There is a strange smell in the room. I read another review also mentioned that.
- The food is average - no surprise or special item like Sushi.
- The management need to seriously looks into security issue - as there is no fence or gate at the beach site - outsiders can easily walk into the hotel compound. Furthermore, there is no CCTV in each floor.

P/S: I had a enjoyable drive using the highway but the village road to Hikkaduwa is really bad;
In my next trip, I prefer drive down to Galle and try the resort/hotel there.

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea view - the west wing is more quiet as it is not facing the swimming pool.

Went there on a private trip on a weekend. The hotel previously known as Corel Gardens. The biggest hotel in Hikkaduwa area. It is amazing to see how they have renovated the hotel keeping the same gran look.

The room was very specious and very friendly staff. They were always trying to keep all the guests happy.

Awesome dinner and breakfast buffet ranging from typical Sri Lankan food to Western. My and my friend from overseas was very convinced from that.

Has a great bar too.

Room Tip: You have three types of rooms. Superior, Deluxe and Suits. What I can say is even superiors rooms ar...
