“lovely stay”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

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.

We stayed in the King Fisher family suite three people the three last days of our three weeks in Sri Lanka. The hotel is adorable. Clean and beautiful decorated. A nice pool. Quite surroundings. View over Hikkaduwa Lake. 10 min (250 rupees) to Hikkaduwa. Even the music in the radio fits perfect to this place playing old music. The staff is very friendly taking care thar you are well. The owners are just as great and as we had a late flight they let us check out latee so we could take a shower.

Will recommend this to everyone who wants a bit of relax and luxury.

Just read all the other good reviews and take it from us you can believe all of them ! ( Trying to save some typing ). We actually ended up here by default after arriving at a place we had booked but did not want to stay at and needed three nights last minute somewhere. We found this on the old ipad and I rang up after seeing one room was free. It was a National Holiday and the person I spoke to gave me one of the owners telephone numbers and I spoke to Dale who said he would remove the availability of the room until the next morning ( we had already sorted that night out ) so we could come up and have a look before committing ourselves and even said ` if you`re not happy, have a drink and use the pool while we try and help you find something else `. That was typical of Dale and Tanya, lovely helpful people. Anyway we loaded everything on a tuk tuk, arrived and just simply said `yes`. It really is a lovely little place with a nice little garden,a nice pool, great dining area and really nice staff. There are good views out over the lake and even though the last available room had no proper lake view the room was excellent and they moved us next day to a room with massive balcony which did. Food was fantastic, because of the atmosphere all the couples usually ended up having a chat about where we had been or going or just chatting in general. I have to say that Tanya is just mental ( in a nice way ) and we got on great with her and she really looks after you, as does Dale. The gardener was a very sweet old man who kept coming round with aloe vera leaves for sunburn, just everybody there was great with very professional attentive service in the restaurant. I think some of the older staff have spent their whole lives working in big hotels and seemed vey experienced.The hotel is about 10 minutes tul tuk inland from Hikkaduwa and they organise tuk tuks to the beach for about £1.50 each way. All I can say is, if we go back to Sri Lanka we will make sure we stop off here again. Thanks Tanya and Dale and all the staff !! from Paul and Ali.

Room Tip: Dont think it matters much but a lake view is an advantage !
