Aditya
Ranked #1 of 27 Hotels in Hikkaduwa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2010

We came from the Villa Bentota to Aditya and spent most of the time wishing we hadn't moved. The Aditya is an ok hotel but worth about a quarter of the price it charges. We started in a room with no view and a passageway used for (as far as we could gather) delivery lorries, rubbish bins and air conditioning units running alongside it. After an evening here we moved (at additional, although discounted cost) to a suite that was far fancier, split level and with a fabulous view.

Both rooms, however, suffered from bathrooms that were completely open to the elements (I don't know if they have rooms without this feature). While this might look exotic when you first see it you quickly realise some of the downsides...no temperature control and absolutely full of mosquitoes.

The other major disappointment was the plunge pools that each room, I believe, have. Again, a fabulous enticement in a brochure but a freezing cold (again no temperature control) plunge pool isn't what you want unless it's sweltering outside and otherwise you are paying for a fancy feature you don't use.

The food was fine but not great and very pricey, as was Aditya in general. It is also about 30 minutes from Galle so not great for sightseeing and the beach outside is almost non-existent (a very steep drop down to the sea caused by treacherously strong current) so you are confined to the (average, not overly new/clean) pool.

We have a large number of friends who have since been to Sri Lanka and have stayed at nicer, far far cheaper hotels.

I’m running out of superlatives to describe our hotels in Sri Lanka. Again a beautiful setting, lovely room with lots of space and goodies that all worked. Great staff and lovely food.

The only criticism of the hotel is that there are no mossy nets in the rooms. This was the only location like this. We both got bitten to death during the night on our backs, arms and legs. Good job we had the antihistamine cream!

We spent last 3 days of our honeymoon in Aditya Villa in Sagara suite. And how we wish we spent our entire honeymoon there.. the place is as good as the reviews I had read claim. The food was the best in Sri Lanka, simply amazing. I am a vegetarian and they were nice enough to tweak any dish i picked into vegetarian. The rooms, spa, food.. the resort is worth every penny they charge. And not to forget about the service - simply suberb! Thank you Aditya!

One minor suggestion however, heated water in the plunge pools would be great. sometimes we found the water too cold.. but we still did use it on all days.
