Hotel is very cute and beautiful!
Beach has a lot of palm with coconuts 8)
A lot of old coral reefs with funny fish and two big hand turtles ( U CAN JUST TOUCH THEM & FEED THEM SOME OF sea grass)!!!
All rooms are perfect (and have a sea view) and beautiful terrace with sofa.

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...

Easy access via the highway from the capital which takes less than 1 ½ hours !
Warm welcome given and lovely location and ambience and the best part was the beach. Many options available to be relaxed…. especially the pool. I must say I did not enjoy the food as there was not much of variation and lacked flavor. By dinner on the first day I was able to predict the spread for meals to come in the days to follow with high accuracy.
I loved the private balcony and the choice of seating there, very cosy! However in the room the throw cushions (or the covers) were either not properly dried or damp due to sea breeze and was cold! (this I doubt as never before I have had similar experience in a sea side hotel room of this status)

What a fantastic hotel, although I agree with a previous reviewer that it is not the most beautiful looking hotel from the street side, but once beach side the pool and garden area is beautiful . The staff were so helpful, attentive and friendly. The breakfast buffet was superb and a special mention for The Crab restaurant. Our party included teenagers and there were plenty of activities to keep them occupied beyond the usual pool and beach eg Squash, table tennis, pool, gym and volleyball. The hotel is located in a great location for exploring Hikkaduwa and although you can't surf from the hotel beach as it is on a reef, you can walk 5 mins to a suitable surfing beach. Every room has a spacious balcony where you can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset. Excellent!!!

Room Tip: Rooms with lower numbers ( eg 200 to 215, 300 to 315 etc) are nearer the beach and therefore further...

Lovely beach front location with very friendly and helpful staff. View from the room overlooking the ocean and beach was impressive. Good selection of food at reasonable prices. Hotel pool large and clean. A great place to relax by the sea. The one negative is that it is along slow trip from the airport at Colombo (allow at least 3.5 hrs to travel 100km), and make sure you organize some comfortable transport with air-conditioning that works!

Outside needs major upgrades. Looks like a dump from the street side. Beach side is amazingly nice however. Rooms were okay at first until realizing there is an ant infestation. In fact ants were crawling through our bags which were zipped close! I read many reviews on this hotel but they were very misleading. I'm dissappointed, particularly for the price.

Chaaya Tranz was the last hotel previous to leaving Sri Lanka. We did not enjoy our stay at this hotel due to a couple of reasons some of which are shared in this review...

When we entered the dining area for our buffet dinner, one person just requested the room number and then left us wondering off in the dining area!! There is no such service where you are dropped appropriately to your table, and at least mentioned what and where is the food being served! On the other hand, waiters came late for the drinks selection! All the staff were running around everywhere and there was a complete kaos! The food was not that great, the pasta offered was kind of tooo much al dente and the noodles had no mixture to them whatesoever!!

2nd thing, the room smelled funny on check in, not a pleasant smell at all. We did request to be moved to another room, however there was no room appropriate with our requirements.

One positive note, the view and location is amazing being exactly next to the beach!!

Room Tip: Facing the ocean ....
