We booked this hotel for our last 3 nights in Sri Lanka and it is disgusting!! Our room stinks of mildew and sewerage. We have asked reception to check our room multiple times and they haven't! Stay away from this place!!

Hikka Tranz is the best resort in Hikkaduwa and the only place there where you can easily sim in the ocean. Swimming in all other places in Hikkaduwa is almast impossible because of waves. Pros: nice cozy spacious rooms, all rooms have terrace with sea view, very good breakfast, green territory, a lot of sunbeds, giant turtles coming from the ocean. Cons: none. Highly recommend.

We had a dinner arrangement with access to the pool and afternoon tea. The pool and surroundings is nice, so is the atmosphere. We were a bit disappointed about the tea and coffee buffet, with only a small piece of cake. It was a bit minimalistic. The dinner buffet was good, good choice of fish, meat and vegetarian. And: with a good wine sommelier, she gave us good advice.

Due to an overbooking of Villa 46 in Hikkaduwa we were offered to stay in this place as an alternative. I only can say it is the best thing what happened to us. The hotel has a beautiful location and is directly situated at the sea. Although there is no private beach you can reach the sandy public beach by a concrete stair from the garden. Although there is no fence around the garden, guards are making sure that everything is safe and that you are not disturbed by sellers of all kind of stuff. The Hotel has it own surfing and PADI diving school on the premises with a flexible and friendly staff. The infinity swimming pool is very beautiful and is deep enough to swim but not to dive. In the garden of the hotel there are sunbeds for which you can get matrasses and towels as of 06:00 AM which is really convenient given the fact that the sunrise is at 06:15 AM. The hotel has also a spa on the top floor and a very well equipped gym in the basement. Two restaurants: one a la carte and one buffet both of very high quality and diversity of food (western, eastern, Sri Lanka style). We were very lucky to be located in a corner suite (suite 301) which gives you a 180 view on the sea. Be aware that only 3rd and 4th floor gives you a direct sea view because 1st and 2nd floor view is blocked by palms. The suite has a kitchen, living room, bedroom and a huge terrace with a jacuzzi and a relax area. But still without a skilled and friendly staff this hotel would be one in a dozen but that is why this hotel is really standing out: the best staff in the world always friendly, caring and attentive. In short this is the place to be in Hikkaduwa !

Though rooms are not so spacious but the location is its awesomeness. Less current in the sea around this hotel in Hikkaduwa. Lot of water sports like snorkling n diving available. Food is one of the best.

Been for 3 nights, the location is great the rooms are very nice, the view from the room is fabulous. The meals are tasty and have great choice and range, the pools and the beach are very nice. Very good choice !

Came on holiday with the family late evening. Was greeted by the bell boy and two lovely ladies. We were offered cold towels and a selection of juices as a welcome drink, which was most welcome. The check-in was fast. After which we were taken to the room by the lifestylist, who did an excellent job. We wanted 2 extra beds put in to the room, which was done very fast. The room was on the 4th floor which is overlooking the gardens, the beach and the sea. When we went to the restaurant for dinner we were greeted with a warm welcoming smile by the lady at the entrance to the restaurant who escorted us to our table. The buffet layout was fairly large and had a very good selection of food. They even had a chef making salad for special orders. Very nice touch to a buffet I would say. The food was nice, they had two action stations with one of the action stations making Pizza and grilling Lamb Kofta, the Lamb Kofta was amazing. The restaurant was clean and the service was good. All in all, had a very good evening.

Came for a wedding function on 23.11.2017 and I have to say that food was amazing .... service was excellent ....! Rooms were not bad looks littlenout of fashion. I will definitely come back for a holiday. Thanks to the Hikka Tranz team

It was an amazing weekend so far it is the best place I have ever visited. Amazing view, superb buffet, helpful and excellent customer service, good accommodation and etc. The most interest thing is buffet with so many varieties and all meals, dessert are yummy..

We have just returned from a wonderful place to spend vacation: Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon, Sri Lanka. Putting aside for a moment the beauty of the inn and its location, this place simply has one of the consistently best restaurants we've eaten at in this country... The crab restaurant, we have been there on Halloween party, and everyone has been pleased if not delighted. Everything was excellent! Happily, though, the cost is quite reasonable for the quality - and that includes 3 amazing starters!!! 1 main course and dessert! The food is truly innovative, sophisticated, and delicious, all prepared by executive chef Saman Kumara. This is no hype! And the service is equally amazing, completely professional and yet warmly welcoming! I highly recommend it!
