9.0 Excellent
Pros: This is an older property sandwiched between the road and the beach. As such it is thin and long. Many chaise lounges facing the beach; a large pool suitable for lap swimming; a smaller cosy pool; great selection for breakfast buffet; beach-side bar offers tasty snacks. The owner was kind enough to introduce himself and showed us photos of the hotel after the tsunami in 2004. He had to completely rebuild and in the process added more facilities. The restaurant staff is very attentive . Nishan, the Food & Beverage Manager is very personable and keeps everything flowing smoothly. Tips: All rooms face the ocean. Get a second floor room for a better view. Try the Sea View Pizza House a 5 minute walk to the right of the hotel - Sri Lankan run and very good quality and value - good thin crust pizza. Walk left on the beach to the point at high tide to see the huge ocean turtles close up.
Cons: We had reading lamps on both side of the bed which is good but they were VERY dim. Suggest replacing the bulbs with higher wattage. Although there was a sign saying to not reserve your chaise lounge for later use, most people did so very early in the morning. If you aren't up around 6:30 am you will be out of luck.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern and comfortable. All facilities available
Cons: Poor air conditioning function.
6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were very helpful and friendly always with a greeting and a smile. Breakfast was lovely and fair variety to suite all tastes. Nice pool
Cons: Our room 401 was musty and we were right next to the kitchen and what must also be a garbage area as the smell as you walk out of room was horrific. Could not sit outside near our room area. Rooms definitely could do with a refresh as the price we paid was definitely not good value. Location was not what we expected much better to head down forwards the citrus hotel area we’re there were lots of outdoor eating areas and beach much better

Lavanga Resort & Spa - Hikkaduwa - Building
3
6.4 Good (694 reviews)
5.4 Okay
Cons: The gym was terrible, the waiters slow and unsatisfactory
4.2 Okay
Pros: Great manager and staff who were all very helpful and tried their best.
Cons: Unfortunately my room stank of sewage and could not be fixed because of the open drain in the bathroom. Air condition did not work. Gym and pool extremely dated and dirty. Swimming pool full of sand from the beach because there are no foot bath before stepping in. Water very cloudy. New hotel manager who was doing his best to improve things!
6.0 Good
Pros: Delicious and varied Breakfast. Beautiful facade, decor around the hotel. The staff is very responsive and pleasant. Clean beach and pool. It is possible to buy an additional dinner or lunch, if not included in the price. There is always a bottle of water in the room.
Cons: The rooms are not very clean. Air conditioners are old. Often forget to put towels, bath accessories and even toilet paper. I have to run to catch the cleaners.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Pool size Spacious On the beach Tuk tuks always outside ready to take you away
Cons: The whole hotel is leaking so water everywhere including in rooms, hallways, bathrooms and the smell of damp is overwhelming. The smell of damp is in everything including the bedding, their is no escape from the smell of damp. The pictures they showcase on their listing are from at least a decade ago so don’t be fooled. The pool is a great size but not regularly cleaned. Has bird droppings floating in and around it, sand from the beach and broken tiles which hurt if you stand on one by accident. The pool once had a swim to bar but this looks like it hasn’t been used for years and adds to the untidy look of the hotel. In fact, if you are planning on spending the day at the pool, you have to completely dry off and get dressed every time you want a drink or a snack as you have to go into the restaurant to order where swim wear is not allowed. We booked here because it had a gym and this was out of use. Not for refurb but because if you used any of the equipment you would need a tetanus. The machines where very very rusty or out of order completely. The bed had bed bugs, it was riddled with them the first night and they slowly seemed to diminish but still not great. We did not have any food in our room in fear of creatures growing in numbers. Other rooms had room service which was left on the floor in the hallways for days before any staff would remove it. When we complained about all this it was pointless. They take the money on arrival for the room which is unusual for Sri Lanka but after an hour of being at the hotel I understood why. The reception lobby is nice so it draws you in to a false security. On arrival the upgraded our room to a balcony room. We could not use the balcony as it was occupied by a nice pigeon family whose droppings where never cleaned and it was all over the balcony furnishings. After complaining, they said their is nothing they can do but will make note of it.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Not clean
1.0 Poor
Pros: Nothing I like about the hotel.
Cons: Run away from this hotel. Don't just trust me read other reviews. These people ruined our anniversary. You won't get anything you see in the photos. You will get filthy hotel room with bird droppings on balcony and on outside couches. Room with leaky ceiling, bathroom with non functional water system. Drinking glasses with oil marks. Doors that need to work too hard to open and close. You can't even do anything about that as hotel policy is pay upfront and no refund.

Pros: Very good

Pros: Amazing breakfasts, cooked off the menu. Fresh Fruit Beach out the front of our hotel was perfect. Beautiful room with amazing views, great rooftop bar.
Cons: Our air conditioning turned off in the night - guessing due to power overload.

Pros: Everything was lovely!
Cons: There weren't enough sunbeds next to the pool.

Pros: Everything
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Terrific hotel. Wonderful staff
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were all amazing. The pool and beach were in a great quiet location not too far from Hikkaduwa and the food was top class. The room was also great with good air con, lighting and facilities. Didn’t use the spa or gym.
Cons: The lift smelt unclean and of body odour. The music being played was awefull and for a modern stylish place, this should be reviewed based on the type of guests staying there as it really put us off spending time in the bar/restaurant.
7.9 Good
Pros: The food in the restaurant, the pool, the sunbeds. And the view to the sea.
Cons: The XL double rooms did not have a glas-balcony. The hotel is expanding, so forøget about relaxing to the sound of the Beach - all you hear is construction-work. It would have been nice to know or at least get a reduction in the price. The first night they gave us a room next to the construction, but we complained. There were no availability before the day after in our room category, but we got a more cheap room - they would not pay us the difference, but offered us dinner instead. We had to take it, because we did not want to live next to construction. I the gym two of the machines do not work (2 out of 4 cardio machines). The staff in the breakfast restaurant forget about your order, so you have to keep reminding hjem. I had a balinese massage - it was ok, but not worth the money I spend on it. I would not recommend to stay on the hotel for the next couple of months, because of the construction.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was really good. Location was very good. Virtually like a private beach but sea was rough and not great for swimming. The food was good but I would not say exceptional. I came when the hotel opened in September 2018 and the food was exceptional then although they did not have a big variety.
Cons: The service could be improved. For example you go and sit near the bar area with a friend who has already arrived and has a drink. The waiter just stands there and does nothing. You have to call him to get a drink. Bear in mind there was no one else in the bar area other than the two of us (10.00 p.m.).

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from the balcony was beautiful!
6.0 Good
Pros: Good location, proximity to the beach and restaurants, the pool and sunbeds, good breakfast
Cons: Rooms need refurbishing! In my sea-view room (and other ones, too - checked with the staff) there was an irritating sense of vibrations all the time. It took 2 days for the staff to figure it out but at the time they had no idea how to fix it and couldn't offer any alternative, which made spending time in the room an unpleasant experience :(
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location directly on the beautiful Hikaduwa beach with lots of turtles and small sharks in the shallow water of the coral reef. Design of the hotel and swimming pool. Seaview from the room and the balcony. Cleaness of the room. Friendly staff. Reasonable value for money.
Cons: Staff is probably afraid that somebody will run away without payment of the bill- they are chasing you several times a day for some payment confirmation. Dinner food must be better for this price. There is much better food for half price in the beach restaurants just few metres nextdoors.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, clean rooms and very efficient and friendly staff. Stayed during the Coronavirus outbreak and had a few days state curfew. The staff went the extra mile to look after all their residents.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The reception staff was fantastic Amila and Shani area credit to the hotel.
Cons: We used the restaurant most evenings. I order prawns and noodles. I was given prawn rice and tomato sauce. I explained that I ordered to noodles and brought me the noodles and apologised
5.0 Okay
Pros: Locations
Cons: Not cool that my black friend was subjected to questions on if she was actually staying at the hotel as she was heading back to her room after a swim. We all checked in together, you asked her because she was black and not the white couple, who were also staying, and who had been swimming.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Coral Rock by Bansei is in an excellent location. You can walk to both the turtle beach and the coral reef. It is right on the ocean. Definitely get an ocean view room. The staff is wonderful. Breakfast is very good.
7.1 Good
Pros: Location and view
Cons: High price compared to similar alternatives
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location right on the beach - slept really well in my seaview room rocked to sleep by the waves. Clean and very comfortable room. Breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Also very good value - especially as I was upgraded. Loved watching the sunset in the evening from my balcony . The hotel is in a great location with restaurants within walking distance or short TukTuk ride and 5 minutes to the left lovely swimming beach - 5 minutes to the right lovely coral beach - can walk straight from beach and go snorkeling. I would definitely return.
Cons: No beach in front of hotel - either washed away, or due to global warming - photos don't show this - but maybe it only disappears in February! They no longer have snorkeling/diving school on their premises but kindly phoned to arrange this with the company within 5 minutes walk away

7.0 Good
Pros: The staff was really friendly, forthcoming and accommodating. The breakfast is good and ample. The location is a bit off the town but has a really nice beach. The swimming pool area is great.
Cons: The room we got had no windows, the other rooms with a verandah are the way to go. The food options for vegetarians are limited.
6.0 Good
Pros: The pool was nice, breakfast was good and the rooms were comfortable.
Cons: No reception desk as such. We weren’t told any info when we checked in. The staff were very friendly but there wasnt much communication. There is mention of a bar and restaurant. Well I didn’t see a bar and the restaurant was a large dark deserted room. Breakfast was nice but we were never offered anything more than that. The hotel is also far out of hikkadawa so you have to get tuk tuks in and out. I think you can get better for your money in the area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Young manager Hasitha is amazing. Everything did very well. This is more than quite and calm to Hikkaduwa city center. Most appreciated all. Highly recommend here.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff very friendly, food absolutly amazing.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The older waiter was incredibly nice. Food was good.
Cons: We were placed into a dark room with no windows or views. Our room only had one outlet - 4 people to share one outlet - not good. Also, we had to pay up front with cash for our room. We should have asked to see our room first. There are a few nice rooms in a newer building, but some rooms are located in the older run down building. Avoid this place and stay somewhere closer to the tourist area. They are overcharging for the rooms. You can get the same priced room in the tourist area of town. I would not stay here again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Professional Experienced Manager Hasitha was helped to us every time, Also very nice other staff. Everyone were try to do they best.... Hope again come
1.0 Poor
Cons: Terrible attitude of staff when they get to know you're a local. Ordered a continental breakfast the night before and the staff were trying to push the already prepared and on display local spread to us, which was swarming with flies. Asked for the (previously ordered) continental instead and the conversation between the staff went like this: Staff 1 : they want continental Staff 2 : why can't they have local? Staff 1 : no apparently Staff 2 : urgh fine then Aand got a sad omlette, and the leftover non toasted bread (what we call kade paan) from their local breakfast spread. Didn't get a fruit platter, and neither did we receive our tea, which we asked for TWICE. Neither were we served with a glass of water which is just basic. The staff seemed to be doing us a favour by giving us the breakfast we paid for. The rooms are basic, the pillows smelled of Chicken curry for some reason and seriously, just avoid this place all together.
7.0 Good
Pros: Breakfast will be provided basically as per our instructions in previous night they will ask from you what is required and they wont have full comprehensive buffet which we can pick what ever we like to have that moment, and room service and housekeeping is good and its a quite place where you can relax your self without engaging much of activities in side the hotel. they do have a pool which is nice and you wont get private beach in case if you imagining since it is beachfront. beach is apparently other side of the road and hotel is located land side.
Cons: i cant complain to them in terms of what i didn't like, as a frequent traveler i always believe its our sole responsibility to pick a place where you really wanted to be. sometimes you pick a place based on pictures but you might not go through the reviews hence i would prefer always read the reviews in prior to pick a place it will really help you to finalize a place as per your expectations.

Pros: Cute small hotel with only 4 rooms. The owners are very nice, friendly and welcoming. The rooms are not big but have everything, what you need. The position of the hotel directly on the quiet beach is really special and the garden and terrace sunbeds are comfortable and offer wonderful views, that you can watch all day long! Breakfast was good and we also took a nice and tasty lunch there everyday. Hoping to return, a place we can recommend.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff were really helpful and friendly. Place is located beachfront. Room was clean and breakfast was really good! This place is really calm and peaceful
Cons: The room was a bit small and the door worked a bit hard.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good villa in traditional style just in front of the ocean. Consists of only 4 rooms, each for 2 guests. We stayed for 17 days. The room was very nice, tidy and clean. All mentioned facilities were available and worked propely. The cleaning and towel change was on the every second day. The incredible heartly hosts made our holidays great and comfortable. Great breakfasts on the beach, ocean view, relax to the sound of the ocean surf. 30 minutes walk to the Hikkaduwa center by the beach or 5 min by bus or tuk-tuk alow both enjoy the village infrastructure and at the same time feel solitary and quite on the hotel territory. So we strongly recommend this villa for your stay. Feel free to contact the owners for help. They will do everything they can to make your stay remarkable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice property Very kind staff We enjoyed our stay in Oriental Rest
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful house, amazing view, clean and comfortable cool room with AC, beautiful old interior and exterior decorations and nice owners. The ocean is literary in front of the room. You feel like the part of history staying there. It was one of the most pleasant stay in Sri Lanka. Despite the house is on the road - no noise of traffic, because rooms are on the ocean side and all you can hear is ocean voice, that is wonderful. Really relaxing place.
Cons: All was fine, just a description of the room was a bit different. (1st floor rooms has no balcony, but it still has a balcony-like (terrace) area with the comfortable seats and coffe-table.)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved the Oriental Rest because it is a traditional establishment. The building is quaint, the view is exceptional and the breakfast was outstanding! Best of all, the family that owns and operates the Oriental Rest is the loveliest of families! Quality Sri Lankans with big open hearts and warm smiles willing to share their experiences and the natural intrinsic pride in their country.
Cons: I would have liked to stay longer, but there were no rooms available.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I love this place. The property is family run. The owner Indika and his wife are amazing people. True Sri Lankan hospitality. I am a Sri Lankan and I am very detailed oriented on the places I choose to stay at. Indika has decorated the place with really classic antique furniture. The photos online do not even convey half of its beauty. The property has an amazing in house chef . We had food there many time both Sri Lankan and other cuisines. It was excellent both in presentation and taste. You only had to ask and it was provided. I loved the tranquility of the location and the people running the business. I would recomend this place to anyone. I will be going back and booking the whole place. Since it has four rooms it is more like a villa than a hotel. Exquisite! Thank you, Indika, Nadeesha and Ananada for making this New Year extra special.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: A very unique old house converted to a home stay. It's very homely and relaxing with a beautiful garden and sun terrace. The staff were wonderful and so friendly. Breakfast was nice and the location right in a quiet part of the beach was hard to beat. About a 45 minute stroll on the beach to the main part which we enjoyed each time.
Cons: The room is a bit small and dark. Felt a bit claustrophobic. Maybe more space for sun lounger at the front as if all rooms are taken there are only enough loungers for 3 couples. Minor tweaks though.

Pros: Really lovely people running this place. Located right on the beach with some sun lounges on the beach. They upgraded our room without saying anything to a sea view with fridge, TV etc. Room was much better then we expected for the money, that was without the upgraded room.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Hospitality and breakfast for vegetarians. Special shout out to Ranga and team. Hangers for drying clothes. The gardens and planters, lighting and overall decor. Lots of power points. Good amount of lighting. Good shower head.
Cons: The room entrance door is aluminum with frosted glass - lot of light coming in at night. Black ants abound Shower didn't have curtain so bathroom would get wet easily. No toiletries other than soap. Bathroom door had no lock or magnet on the outside, hence when not in use, it would remain slightly open. Same for main door.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great size king room, comfortable & good location. Friendly & helpful staff- we had to leave before breakfast gets served as we needed to get to the airport, and the manager was very kind to turn up earlier to make our breakfast for us so we didn’t miss out! The tour manager the evening before had also recommended a restaurant called Aroma, the food we ate there was amazing, highly recommend! Top marks for customer service!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staffs were nice. They interact the clients pretty well and it seems like a family run property.
Cons: It was quite away from the beach road; if any body likes quiet place may suit this property. Price is bit high and they only take cash currency.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of the best places we stayed in Sri Lanka. The room was so big, cleaned everyday and comfortable. The location was perfect, only 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. The staff were very welcoming and helped with all our requests. We initially booked for 2 nights at L&D, but we loved it that much that we extended our stay here for an extra 2 nights. It’s 100% a must stay for those wanting to visit Hikkaduwa and have a relaxing stay. Big thanks again to Ranga for a fabulous end to our trip.
Cons: Nothing - only thing missing is a pool ;)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at Neela's Guest House was from the beginning to the end perfect. The airport pick up and drop off got organized in advance and worked out perfect. The breakfast is really good and the food at Neela`s beach restaurant is amazing with an awesome view. The room we stayed was really clean and got cleaned up every second day by 2 really nice boys. But the best at Neela`s Guest House are the people. Friendly, kind and helpful in every situation. The guest house organized two sightseeing tours for us which were well organized and corresponding to our ideas and wishes. If we needed an advice or help, there was always somebody helping us or calling somebody who could help. The service stuff is super friendly with personal and really interesting communications. No mosquitos during our stay! We really can recommend the guest house to everybody and looking forward to go there again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, super friendly staff, comfy bed, right on the beach! Best stay we had in all of Sri Lanka
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Five weeks in Sri Lanka have been amazing and we have stayed in some remarkable accommodation, but we certainly saved the best till last. Neela’s is perfect, the accommodation, the staff, the breakfasts, the dinners, listening to the waves crash while falling asleep at night, waking up and going for a pre breakfast swim, another swim after breakfast, then relax in the heat of the day and a final swim late afternoon. Restaurant is superb. Location is great, slightly out of the busy part of town but with plenty of cafe and shops around to satisfy anyone. The walk to the turtle beach was easy and didn’t take long and was well worth it for an early morning stroll up the beach.
Cons: Cannot improve on perfection.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything from asking for directions arriving with a glass of orange, the facilities water pressure, safe in room, location, book stall, beach towel all free. Food very good staff very happy

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice room, clean, well equipped. Hotel with outside showers that you can use after check out Very helpful staff
Cons: We booked a 3 people room with a balcony and "a view" but the view was nothing special- You could see a bit of sand and ocean, but you had also part of the building which made the view not really worth it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely breakfast by the pool. Our room and the balcony was beautiful! Large, clean and with nice furniture. There was tea and coffee in the room. Comfortable beds. Great location about 1 km from the city. Several beach restaurants within 10 mins walking. The pool-area was serene. It felt a little as though we were in a little private jungle, but the beach (beautiful and great for swimming and sunbathing) was just two steps away. Will def come back if ever in Hikkaduwa again.
Cons: The poolbar was closed, but we could still order drinks in the lobby (which is right by the pool). Not the widest selection but great juice and basic soft drinks. My wife who loves icecubes got a whole bucket when she asked for extra ice for her coke
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Was passing through on my way to Colombo and am so glad I paid Hikkaduwa and the hotel a visit! Loved the small and intimate vibe of the hotel and the staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home... everyone from the manager to the restaurant staff, the housekeeping staff and beyond are top notch. Food is amazing, try the local cuisine and the seafood menu. In short - very glad I found a gem in this lovely beach town and will be staying again if I happen to travel to Sri Lanka again!
Cons: Perhaps the only inconvenience is that the property is ~15 mins away by foot from the main surf point so it’s a decent walk - I imagine this will not be an issue for the vast majority of guests however

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, facilities, breakfast
Cons: Noisy airconditioner in room
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Good location right next to the beach. Good variety of food at breakfast and dinner.
Cons: Took a long time to check in, I was first put into a twin room even though I had booked a king. Room looked worn and dirty in areas (especially bathroom) did not look like the photos advertised. Staff were not as polite as I had hoped, especially in the dining hall. No drinks included at Dinner. Gym is very poor, very little equipment and what is there is rusty or dirty. Lots of crows and chipmunks in the sun lounger area which were very loud/annoying. Given the price it was not the luxury I was expecting. Book elsewhere!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location of the hotel is absolutely amazing!! My boyfriend and I swam with turtles every single day it was so lovely! The pool area was nice and so was the restaurant. The staff were really lovely and friendly and usually, really helpful. I liked that the hotel was gated and guarded.
Cons: The rooms were not satisfactory. They were dirty especially the shower. You could see the marks where the screen hadn’t been cleaned for a very long time. The lighting in the room was very poor. Not big lights, only a few small bedside lights. Although the pool and turtle beach was amazing, it was by no means a ‘private beach’. There was a ‘back gate’ that lead from the road straight into the pool area, where passerby’s would walk through and on to the beach people would also walk from the part of the beach that isn’t a private beach, up into the hotel to cut through and carry on down the beach towards Hikkaduwa beach. There’s were security guards but more often than not, they would not stop people from going through. This was frustrating as we didn’t feel as though our belongings and bags were being looked after, like would expect them to at private beach or private hotel pool area. There was a beautiful waterfall shower in our bathroom, that if we used, would flood the entire bathroom. The showers didn’t not drain water very well at all. It meant that we had to turn the shower on and as quick as we could, get it to a normal temperature stand under it was a few seconds and then turn it of. Shampoo and soap ourselves and then turn it back on to quick rinse our hair and bodies.
4.5 Okay
Cons: Had to wait in the lobby on our only sunny day there to continually dispute their tries at transferring us to another hotel despite our wishes to stay with this hotel, the hotel we booked 11 days prior and called three hours before to confirm that all was ready. We called three hours in advance only because we had read reviews online that the hotel chain called Cinnamon Hotels which Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa is a part of, often over books their locations and tries to excitedly "upgrade" guests to a different hotel, despite their wishes. After continual disputes making our long start at the hotel extremely unpleasant, especially after a long day of travelling, we were finally given a room. After that point, we enjoyed our stay, the beautiful views, the pleasant staff, and beachside.
