You’ll remember the remarkable hotels in Sri Lanka long after you return home. The country’s range of boutique accommodation is exceptional, with both modern and traditional designs to suit every aesthetic. Our favourite Sri Lanka hotels tend to have a dash of luxury, seamless service, and a lot of character.
MORE THAN APLACE TO SLEEP
In our view, Sri Lanka has some of the best hotels in Asia. There are eco-friendly jungle lodges, lovingly restored tea estates, beautiful beach resorts and intimate villas oozing with Sri Lankan style. You’ll also find the upper echelons of luxury, with a selection of 5* plus hotels to make your luxury holiday extraordinary.
We look for hotels that offer more than just bed and board. Bland, impersonal chains are not for our travellers. Instead, we work with Sri Lankan hotels that have a sense of place. We believe that the right accommodation can enhance your connection with the destination, especially when combined with brilliant service. We’d love to help you find hotels in Sri Lanka that stay with you, for all the right reasons!
CHOOSE YOUR CATEGORY?
Boutique and character
Sri Lanka’s boutique hotels are often our favourites. The use of local architecture, design, and Sri Lankan style hospitality brings a real sense of place. Most hotels in this category will have 20 rooms or fewer to give that personalised, intimate feel here too.
Deluxe and luxury
Our pick of the best deluxe and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka are all 5* plus, with an extra special quality to get a place here. Whether you just want one indulgent stay or to go all-out luxury throughout your trip, we can help you decide which luxury experience is right for you.
Eco and Unique
Over the past few years, more and more hotels have started to offer a genuine commitment to sustainability. These unique properties won’t be for everyone, but they are a fantastic option for those looking to explore some of Sri Lanka’s most wild and remote settings.
Best beach hotels & resorts
With miles of glorious coastline, Sri Lanka has beachside resorts along every side of the island. From boutique hotels to laidback cabanas and luxury resorts, we’ll help you choose the seaside accommodation that’s right for you.
There is a brilliant selection of family hotels in Sri Lanka. Whether it is an adventure or a luxury hotel or resort that your family craves, we always look for one outstanding feature in our family accommodation - whether it’s amazing interconnecting rooms, an excellent child-safe pool or just a host of fun experiences.
Villas and Hideaways
If you’re seeking an even more intimate experience, perhaps when travelling with friends or extended family, Sri Lanka’s exceptional range of villas and hideaways might be perfect for you.
Best of the Rest
These hotels don’t quite fit neatly in with another category, but they each offer something unique. They might be in a remote region or just provide a different kind of experience, but we always ensure you’re in a good quality hotel wherever you go.
HOTELS WITH EXPERIENCE TRAVEL GROUP
At Experience Travel Group (ETG), we understand that the right hotel can make your holiday. That’s why every hotel in our collection has been personally vetted by a member of our team - we have our own rating system and pretty exacting standards, too (for every one hotel you see, there may well be five that haven’t made the cut!). Our main touchstone is that each hotel we work with genuinely enhances your experience of the destination. What might work for one traveller might not suit another, so your dedicated travel consultant will work with you to find properties that tick all your boxes.
