We had our last meal in Sri Lanka in this hotel and it was very good. The food was excellent and the table service we got was very good also. We had an issue when we arrived as the day prior we got a price for dinner for two people as we were not staying at this hotel but when we showed up they said they could not provide us with the price originally agreed. This was very disappointing as I value peoples word, it did dampen the experience but didnt ruin it. Read less

We stayed for 10 nights and every time was the dining experience excellent . Especially Amali was really professional, she remembered our favorite drinks even though there are like 200 guests every evening! And the views! We were eating while listening to ocean every night. Beautiful!

Being currently overseas, I wanted to treat my parents for their anniversary in Jan 2020 and chose Hikka Tranz as I had been there before and really enjoyed the stay. I liaised with the head office and the FOM, requesting a couple of things for my parents.Their replies were pleasantly responsive and supportive. Long story short, My parents' stay and experience at Tranz Hikka from start to finish - had been absolutely memorable and special. They had stayed in a lovely room much to their delight and comfort and decorated on welcome. Then to mark their anniversary a cake had been arranged. They were looked after exceptionally well that evening. This was a thrill for me to see, as I happened to call them whilst they were at dinner and I witnessed the entire setting. It made me wish that I was there too! More importantly, it made me so happy to see them receiving such hospitality. Little things like logging in their phones to their room WI-fi had all been taken care of. May I say, I was thrilled by the manner in which the FOM and her team at Tranz Hikka had ensured that my parents were treated with the best of Keells hospitality. They missed nothing on my checklist. In the end, it's all about having a personal experience to remember. I asked that in my absence, that my parents are given a memorable stay on their significant day - and Keells Hotels did that. I will appreciate this for a long time. Read less
