We booked 5 nights at Asian Jewel after reading the TA reviews so we had high expectations and they were well and truly exceeded. What a beautiful hotel! The attention to detail in the rooms and around the property make it a really special, classy place.
We stayed in the luxury room with a four poster bed and raised bathtub big enough for two and it was a gorgeous room (having looked in all the others they are all beautifully furnished and very appealing).
We got married during our stay and Dale was an absolute star organising everything for us. We had some issues at our end with the required paperwork and Dale was endlessly patient (and prompt at answering our many emails) and managed to get the wedding organised despite everything.
As mentioned in other reviews, Tanya is a talented chef and her food is fantastic. The presentation is simply the best I’ve seen – 5 star hotels and fancy restaurants included.
I had reservations about staying inland away from the beach but I’m so glad we did as Asian Jewel is much nicer than any of the other hotels we saw and Dale and Tanya can get you a tuk-tuk into Hikkaduwa no problem so it’s really not an issue to be a little out of the town.
Thanks Dale and Tanya for making our stay so wonderful and for making our wedding happen! We were honoured to have you as our witnesses and we are very much looking forward to our next visit.
Many thanks also to the hardworking and charming staff, Sunny, VJ, Dinesh and Sarath who also helped make our stay so enjoyable.
