These hotels are all excellent options for a base to enable you to see a particular area or region of Sri Lanka. They might not offer the kind of personalised service or unique architecture that some of our deluxe & luxury or boutique & character hotels do - but quality can be patchy in Sri Lanka, and we ensure you'll be in a good quality hotel wherever you go.
You might wish to plan your entire your trip around hotels like this or fill in gaps: as usual, we'll tailor your entire trip to suit you.
