Adventure, Gastronomy & Relaxation – the Cinnamon Way

The best things in life tend to come in threes, like health, wealth and happiness. At Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon, we believe the same. This is why we too have a heady combination of elements that bring you to an island edition of the good life. Engage in exhilarating adventures, dig into succulent food and relax to your heart’s content.

 Sink your teeth into our vibrant ocean side experiences from the very setting of our resort by the sea and a list of things to do in Hikkaduwa that will go beyond the standard. Check out some of these ideas and experiences we have in store for you at Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon:

Adventure:

Sunbathing can wait! Here are some big adventures you can immerse yourself in while you are with us:

Whale Watching

Whales remain one of the last magnificent sights that must be seen at least once in life. Our teams of naturalists are experts at revealing the wonders of these awesome beasts to you, and have a good success rate of spotting marine mammals (in the season from Oct to April).

Diving

Diving is a rich experience, and if getting certified is a priority, PADI certified dive teams are on standby. (in the season from Oct to April)

Sightseeing

At Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon, sightseeing can become so compulsive that we may have to remind you to catch up on your tan, but for those adventurers who really want to get to grips with the soul of Sri Lanka, there are endless possibilities.

Nature Trails Excursions

Trained Cinnamon Nature Trails naturalists will guide you through all there is to discover. Go whale watching or hop on the rainforest trail at Hikka Tranz By Cinnamon.

River Excursions

  • Explore the Madu River and the Rathgama Lagoon during your stay.

Other adventures include:

Gastronomy:

  • If our many eclectic dining venues don’t do it for you, ask us and we’ll set up a private BBQ on the beach, complete with your own personal chef for a heady, gastronomic experience outdoors.
  • For the couple on vacation, we can set up a special champagne breakfast for you in your room or private balcony.

Relaxation:

  • While we’re the party central, we also believe that big doses of relaxation are required in-between the late nights.
  • Give yourself a day off and head to the Azmaara Spa on the 5th floor for a heightened experience all the way. Specialized Balinese therapists will immerse you in a series of treatments that will relax and revitalize you.
  • Take a dip in our big resort pool and bring the kids along to the nearby kids’ pool so the whole family can have some downtime.
  • Spend adequate time on your private balconies: The daily performance of sun meeting horizon is bound to do wonders for the soul.
  • We have a host of little relaxation spots and secluded alcoves spread out across the resort. Find your spot, bring a book, order a cocktail and lose yourself in the magic of Hikkaduwa.

Hop on a boat from the Mirissa Harbour and embark on a three-hour journey out to sea in search of whales and dolphins off Mirissa.

During this marine adventure, given the sea condition, you will also witness Sperm Whales and Blue Whales, the largest animal to ever inhabit our planet.
