At the centre of Wathurugama, little more than an hour from Colombo lies a charming boutique experience in the shape of Comilla bungalow. With ties to Sri Lanka’s colonial past, Comilla bungalow is ideal for those seeking to unwind while experiencing Sri Lankan hospitality and all that rural Sri Lanka has to offer.
Sat within a coconut plantation, with lychee trees framing the primary view from its veranda, Comilla bungalow is the perfect hideaway spot from which to take in the delights of Sri Lankan nature. Guests can venture out to any of the three nearby ancient stone Buddhist temples, take cycle trips in the surrounding countryside or unwind with a massage.
Guests can choose from one of two bedrooms situated in the main bungalow, or a detached chalet ideal for those looking for an extended stay, all of which are spacious and comfortable with impressive bathrooms made for relaxing in. Combined with the bungalow’s extensive outdoor and veranda space this makes for the perfect spot to unwind in.
While possibly not the best option for those looking for high luxury and five-star service, Comilla bungalow offers a serene retreat where one can be left to one’s own devices with the option of cultural immersion nearby. Because of this and its vicinity to Colombo, it makes an ideal first or last stop on your Sri Lankan adventure, whether you need to get over that jet lag or reflect on your experiences.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
