The check-in was served with a welcome drink, friendly staff on the reception and baggage service as normal.

The room is clean with a fruitbasket und a nice figure from towels. The room ist every day clean and just as cold as we need.

The staff is very friendly and efficiency with our wishes and needs. The restaurants are very clean and every day is a new theme in food. Special wishes are quick and fast served and without any problems. Awesome!!!

Every day You can choice from fresh fish, prawns and lobster (extra to pay) but worth every Rupie.

About the beachboys: don't trust them, the want to overcharge You. Siri, on of them tried to sell us a whale-watching-tour over 100€ per person. In the hotel they only charge 85 usd.

Enjoy the Hotel and staff, THX a lot for this awesome holiday.

We stayed in Chaaya Tranz at Hikkaduwa in November of 2012. We booked it online and though a little on the pricier side $100/night it was well worth it. The room was fantastic, five star quality. Each room has a large balcony (we had a sea facing room which had an incredible view as the hotel is right on the beach) with a table and chairs and even a queen sized sofa to sit on.

The property has a beautiful pool and huge front garden that pours on to the beach. We even saw a couple getting married right there, and the staff was extremely efficient and always had smiles on.

Though we only had the breakfast at the hotel (we wanted to try some of the local street food and only had 2 nights there so we didnt eat any of other meals there), the breakfast was a massive spread and was incredibly good. Especially their Sri Lankan breakfast was awesome.

Would suggest everyone to spend atleast a night here!

Room Tip: Get a sea facing room for sure!!!

So, We stay here for Two nights during our stay in Srilanka.

We wanted to stay in Jet wing hotels in Galle and they were not available on the dates we wanted. so our travel agent suggested us this place. After reading almost all the reviews of this place we settled down for this . Was not expecting too much but the Hotel impressed me :).

As soon as we enetered , we were given the Cold towles which was the best part after travelling the whole day in Sun.
The Welcome drink was some Papaya drink which was Nice, Clod and really refreshing.

As soon as we came into the room , We were Awestruck by the view from the Lovely balcony . Our room was on 4th Floor And it had a really clear view of the beach and the pool. It was just fabulous.

The balcont had a chair table and a sofa kind of thing which was really lovely, That was the place where i had my morning teas :).

Good points of the Place :

the view from The rooms , is fabulous.
The pool is really big.
The Bar overlooking the Pool has Sheesha and its open.
Their drinks ( LIIT and the Mojito ) were really good.
The welcome drinks and the Cold towel makes you feel welcome at the place.
They served Wine and fruits in the room ( On house) .
The traditional Show at the hotel was really good. Loved it.
The room services for the Lunch we ordered was really fast and displayed really well .

Bad points :
The Dinner Buffet did not change much in thetwo days which was disappointing as we didnt get much to eat from teh biffet .
The dessert options were many but didnt have many good ones. Disappointing again.
The ground floor area with the restaurant and Bar need some maintenance for sure, The walls are bland , Cement painted . It looks like that the work is still pending.
The funny one hand chairs . Didnt understand teh concept of One Arm rest :D
The beach is a Coral Becah so you cant really go and swim there .

Apart from All the bad points , we enjoyed our time here. so recommended if you are staying in Hikkaduwa , As i"m guessing this is the best place to sya in this area.

Room Tip: Sea view Rooms on 4th Floor.

This resort was the jewel of our holiday: snorkelling in the coral, feeding turtles, excellent swimming pool, beautiful beach, spacious rooms with a sea view, to name but a few - it's all there! Very fitting end to a two week intensive tour of Sri Lanka!

Travelling round Sri Lanka, we chose Hikkaduwa for diving opportunities, chilled out beach vibe and small town feel. We were not disappointed. We chose Chaaya Tranz for location, reputation and service. We were not disappointed. We had close Sri Lankan friends whom we had not seen for 5 years, coming to the hotel to share a meal with us. This is where the staff excelled. Best table reserved in restaurant, celebration cake with sparklers and outstanding service - we thank-you for the most special night! If you are celebrating a special occasion do not hesitate to stay here and mention.

Spa was 10/10. £80 for couple Balinese massage with Balinese therapists. Welcome dink, cold towel, foot bath and onto sheer heaven. Stresses of work and jet lag - gone!

The missing point is lost at breakfast. Would have been nice for staff to service their sections. Guests having to frequently having to repeatedly ask for tea/coffee and look for space. This could be simply rectified. However, all other areas were perfect i.e. housekeeping and reception. Keep up the good work- we will be back and recommend to friends.
