    Extraordinary

    This was my favorite hotel experience in Sri Lanka. The beach is amazing, and that us not all. The rooms are lovely with modern yet warm feel. The balcony and spectacular oceanview is worth the extra cost. Service was top notch. Food was delicious. The best location and beach in southern Shri Kanja and worth the added price. If I were to do this trip again, I would stay in this hotel longer.

    one of our favorites!

    Beautiful hotel on the quiet side of Hikkaduwa. Great place to enjoy the beach without the packed in feeling of the center of Hikkaduwa. Gorgeous pool and rooftop and the food is fantastic. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only negative was construction going on right next door. Our room was just on the other side of the wall from it so it was loud at times. Never at night however. All in all, an excellent choice for Hikkaduwa beach!

    Centrally located, the Riff is a great place for a short getaway. Beautiful rooms with a gorgeous view of the beach and extremely friendly and helpful staff is what you can look forward to. What stood out for us was their amazing fresh breakfast.

    Best hotel of the honeymoon

    This hotel was the best of our honeymoon. The staff were brilliant, the hotel was immaculate and it was the one place that actually does some of the small things to be that little bit more eco-friendly - e.g. glass bottles of filtered water versus 8 plastic bottles a day. The food was also the best we experienced on our trip, especially the seafood/sushi.

    I’m not sure where to start. AMAZING! Pure bliss. The staff were amazing, location is right on the beach. FOOD (omg!), proper 5 start quality. The ingredients are locally sourced, the chef has worked at some of the top restaurants in London. Presentation was amazing. We could not fault the service, it’s obvious the staff have been trained professionally. The owner is such a sweetheart and really looked after us. This place is somewhere you can really unwind. The view from the rooms was breathtaking. The sunset from the rooftop was perfect. Perfect in every way.
