We visited Hikka Tranz in the latter part of June. After the Easter attacks we were pretty scared to go out of Colombo however I must say that we felt very safe and secure in this property as they had a very rigorous security procedure. The property looks fabulous and it was absolutely full to the brim. One thing that I need to commend is that though there were so many people the food and the service was very good and we indeed had a really good time. However the fact that there were alot of crows around the pool made us question the hygiene of it yet we had a really good time. It's one of the best hotels under Cinnamon it is absolutely beautiful and worth it. Read less

Buffet breakfast and dinner were amazing a huge variety to choose from. The cleaning of the rooms was second to none. Staff were so friendly and accommodating, especially Thilakasari in the pool bar! Pool was spotless and perfect temperature! Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning in the future.

Pros - location and beach front - Action stations - Menaka was friendly and knowledgable. - Tharindu from F&B at your ADD restaurant was very attentive. Cons - the security guard at the entrance was busy chatting to his friends. We waited patiently and since he was otherwise occupied we drove in. I think he realised his job description and then started pounding on the car vehemently. Who does that? - customer service is abysmal. Checking in took a while. Despite being busy, it’s rather rude to focus your attention on a foreigner WHILE attending to another (resident) customer’s check-in. When you visit Jetwing properties they treat you equally and sadly, this was not the case. If you are running at full occupancy you need the relevant front office staff to manage it. - Security check: two ladies and one without gloves. I understand city properties have the relevant luggage scanners, however even without one, it’s absolutely unhygienic to wade through personal belongings ie clothes without gloves. There’s zero privacy. How do you think a woman would feel when openly checking luggage with men standing there peering into it? - Room: 234 and 225: the tv was broken. Do you not ensure that on check in the basics are up and running? We had someone from engineering fix this. Phone was broken. - Cleanliness : Good heavens! Attached pictures. On check in the room was dusty. Bathroom shower glass separator has dirt and mould. Now that’s disgusting. Balcony- the ledge is covered in dried up crow faeces. Not cool. I’m sure housekeeping can perhaps clean up a little bit. Coffee mugs at the ADD- coffee was served in stained mugs. - Food : mediocre. The desserts (picture attached) - almost all the desserts consisted of the same base. For a cinnamon property the pastry kitchen needs a little more creativity. Overall not worth revisiting.
