Situated facing the beach this is a stunning older style private house (about 100 yrs old) which has 4 bedrooms. An excellent and very filling breakfast is included with double room costing approx $US 60. Couple running are young, very friendly and helpful.Rooms are quite small but adequate, having both AC and overhead fans. Bathrooms are basic but functional. Place is charmingly decorated in local style suiting the age of the house. Place has easy access to the beach with seating overlooking it. If you want 5* luxury then this is not for you. But if you want stunning location in quiet, unpretentious place then this is certainly worth a visit.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome here. Great place with Ocean View rooms. The food is also great here. We had a nice breakfast every morning. Also we had dinner at Oriental rest one night. And it’s the best rice & curry we’ve tasted in Hikkaduwa. Beats all the so Called “top TripAdvisor” restaurants in town. And belive me we’ve traveled around Sri Lanka and tried plenty of Rice & curry. Would recommend this place for those who are looking for a calm relaxing time on the beach. You can walk along the beach all the way to other cafées and restaurants.

Very nice place to stay at a quite part of Hikkaduwa. The rooms are good with a nice bathroom, bed and balcony with two chairs and a small table. A good place to relax after a day of swimming etc. Would really recommend this place. The new owners are really nice!

Lovely, small guesthouse with 4 rooms, all with ocean view. Terrace and chairs to enjoy the evenings. Located at a calmer part of Hikkaduwa beach, so no party place, but loads of restaurants and bars in walking distance. The service is very good, and the host couple that lives there are always helpful. Beautiful breakfast with lush fruits, coffee/ tea, and lovely bread and a choice of egg/pancake. Will warmly recomend the place for couples who want to relax!

The Oriental Rest is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the wonderful location - right on the beach. Our hosts were truly lovely and breakfast was delicious. We were also offered an evening meal which was extremely good value and also delicious. Our room was cleaned regularly and had a lovely balcony looking out towards the sea. We would definitely recommend this little characterful, boutique hotel to anyone looking for a place to relax and unwind and we are really hoping to rerun one day.
