Me and my partner stayed here for a week after voluntering at Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage. After working hard for a week this place was just what we needed. Situated on Hikkadawu Lagoon away from the main roads, it was so peaceful. The hotel was clean, the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly! Tanya and Dale were fantastic...

We stayed at the Asian Jewel Boutique Hotel in October for five days and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is the perfect place to totally unwind and relax. AJBH is a small boutique hotel located by a lake with a serene and tranquil atmosphere as it is away from the centre of Hikkaduwa but only a ten...

This is an absolutely lovely hotel. So much care has been given to decorating the rooms, that they are a joy to look at. The hotel's situation is on a quiet lagoon, wonderful for bird watching. It is away from the busyness of Hikkaduwa, yet only minutes by tuk tuk from the beach. Dale and Tanya are the best hosts,...

We stayed for 3 days as part of a short trip to Sri Lanka, and in that short time were really made to feel at home by Dale, Tanya and all the staff. The level of personal service was outstanding, and all the advice they gave on various topics was spot on. We hope to go back again for a...

The hotel is in a beautiful setting, pretty much in the middle of jungle. You need to get a tuk tuk for ten minutes up rocky and often muddy 'roads' to get there, but that all adds to the experience and authenticity of staying in a hotel in the jungle. The hotel is privately run by a British couple and...

We stayed at the Asian Jewel, initially for 4 nights but extended to 7 nights in the middle of October (after it was recommended to us). We'd previously stayed in Hikkaduwa and it's safe to say that the Asian Jewel is up there, not only as the best hotel we've stayed at in Hikkaduwa but also Asia. Both Tanya and...

We had the smoked chicken salad, jumbo prawns, house chicken curry, banana pancakes and choc brownie. All together (with 6 JD with coke) was around 9k. Possibly the best food I've ever eaten... I wish there was a place like this in Singapore.. Can't wait to be back. Easily the best food in Sri Lanka.

We stayed again for a week after an eighteen month absence in July 2011; we found that July was a good time to visit Sri Lanka as there were relatively few tourists and the temperature was in the high seventies . We (family with two teenage boys) stayed in the family suite which was comfortable and quiet . Vijay took...

We stayed there for a weekend, and I have to say from all the places I have been in Sri Lanka (I am an expat here) this is one of the best experiences I have had. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, the owners are lovely, it is clean, the food is great and the service even better. It was...

After a stay in the chaos of Colombo, this hotel and their staff provided a perfect setting for rest and relaxation. The rooms are all tastefully decorated in true Sri Lankan style, with everything down to the last detail done to perfection. Our room (Lily) has superb views over the lagoon and swimming pool, where we enjoyed an evening drink...
