Sri Lanka, Colombo, Negombo & Around
Info : Villa Araliya
Set back from the main beach, designer inspired Villa Araliya Negombo is a great option for those on a budget. The village feel of the property makes one feel instantly at home and the great location means that you are moments from the beach without any of the extra noise and bustle that comes with it.
Consisting of 8 spacious and stylish rooms and 5 suites, there is plenty of room, making Villa Araliya Negombo perfect for families. The 45ft floodlit turquoise pool is great if you want to enjoy a swim away from the crowds, and there is always the poolside cafe if you get a little peckish.
The rooms are great for families, with twin beds arranged to optimise that sleepover feel making it an absolute favourite for kids. Only fifteen minutes from the airport, Villa Araliya Negombo is a great spot for relaxing on your last night before your flight home.
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.
We stayed in Villa Aspara. Awesome. I am not telling you why, as I want to go back there and it will get fully booked. (sorry Andrew - we can't keep a secret...)
