If you are planning a visit to south Sri Lanka, guys head to Hikkaduwa and stay at Amaya,.
The hotel is a perfect vacation. And for the rate, I would think it puts a lot of questions on the rates a lot of big brands charge for luxury.
From the airport taking a bus is simple but time consuming, took 7 hrs for the 120KM and 3 busses. Otherwise, Costs about 70-80 USD for a van for 5 ppl. Reaching the hotel will take 4 hrs by van.
Stay: i booked thro a site, which is far cheaper than actual over the counter bookings.
There are 2 types of rooms, one side faces the road-Strict NoNo.
Other side faces the Beach+Pool. and its a wow!
Room was awesome, modern rooms and amenities.
Had a good AC, super white beds, and a very functional washroom.
All kits provided in the washroom...
Guest service was good. Breakfast was decent.
There is no other hotel that is 5-10 mtrs from the beach. There are many other hotels, better looking/charging, but this is the only one so close.
We went in a good season which was off season for the city, October 2012 and the place was silent, went well for us asking for silent relaxation. Take a bike to the neighboring locations and enjoy the water sports, take a van and goto Galle and whale watching, all with ease of this location.
Would think its a sure shot winner!
Wud love to go bk!
