Sri Lanka - Hikkaduwa

A travel blog entry by leanne.baker


What LP says: Hikkaduwa has long been among the most popular of Sri Lanka’s beach spots. Its proximity to the capital (98km from the Fort) helps – many people come here direct from the airport to start their classic Asian beach holiday. And it’s got a definite fun vibe, especially at its southern end, where there are dozens of …

Turtle Power

A travel blog entry by lionelrishi


We got up early this morning with the intention to spot some turtles off the beach outside Chaaya Tranz, as so many locals have kept reminding us about this phenomenon that has happened ever since the Tsunami destroyed the whole of this coastline on that fateful boxing day of 2004.

So we managed to get out of the hotel and onto the coarse …

Under the Sea

A travel blog entry by lionelrishi


Having left our previous hotel this morning, due to exorbitant fees for using the air con, it was nice to come to a hotel only a few doors down, where the room was twice the size, had a sea view balcony and a/c all at a much more reasonable 3000 rupees.

It was also great to know that today we'd have the chance to walk out onto the beach …

... this. and crossed the first alley way to the main road. I am not sure if it was much better because now I was trying to not get run over by busses, tuk tuks, motorcyclists, and cars. There is not really a sidewalk. Then I over shot the hotel a bit, and realized that there was no more white people, and I was surrounded by local shops, food, and people.. so I turned around and ran back hoping I wasn't lost. I figured it out eventually! ...

    Nice beach hotel

    We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

    Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

    We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

    As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

    Good stay

    We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
    Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
    Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
    Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
    All in all, a good place to stay.
