After an exhaustive 10 day whirlwind tour of Sri Lanka, during which I inspected more than 50 hotels, I am pleased to present my ‘Top 8 Flat Out Best Hotels of Sri Lanka’ and ‘Top 8 Best Value Hotels of Sri Lanka’ and importantly my ‘No No No Award’
Top 8 Flat Out Best Hotels of Sri Lanka (in no particular order):
Ulagalla Resort, near Anuradhapua. Amazing high end property with private villas, ideal for honeymooners or private time
Warwick Gardens, near Nuwara Eliya. Converted tea estate bungalow – secluded but not remote.
Weligama Bay Resort, Weligama. I had two relaxing nights here. Simple but well appointed rooms. Swimming and surfing beach immediately in front of the property
Amanwella, Tangalle. It’s an Aman property – der!
Dutch House, Galle. Wonderful heritage property for discerning travellers
Tamarind Hill, near Galle. A discreet small boutique property, very laid back. Fantastic infinity pool
Club Villa, Bentota. One of the original boutique hotels in Sri Lanka. Still holds up very well against the new comers
Casa Colombo. A fusion boutique hotel. The most interesting rooms I have seen in a long time
