Best 3, 4 & 5 Star Hotels in Sri Lanka

best hotels in Sri Lanka

A selection of the best 3, 4 and 5 star hotels in Sri Lanka – according to tourist reviews and value for money. Also our recommendations for choosing a region and useful links.

Sri Lanka is actively developing in the tourism industry: Many new hotels and restaurants are opening, more and more travelers choose Ceylon as a place to stay. The island is also popular with package tourists. However, this is not the most budget destination, even the prices for sightseeing are high, but the country with its luxurious nature and ancient architecture is worth the splurge. Recall that hot tours are easy to find and book on Travelate.

We recommend not to linger in Colombo – it’s a noisy capital with all the consequences. It is better to give it a couple of days and go to a quiet resort – there are quite a few: Unawatuna, Bentota, Galle, Negombo, Waddouwa. Galle settled European expats, it’s pretty neat town with beautiful villas, Hikkaduwa suits the active youth, and the beach Bentota – for older and more respectable. Unavatuna, according to travelers, is considered one of the most beautiful and comfortable vacation beach with children – the bay is protected by coral reefs. Thus, when choosing a place to stay, consider the status of the resort and its infrastructure.

Remember that the “stardom” in Ceylon can be deceptive: for example, among the three-star hotels there are those that claim to be a full-fledged “four”, as well as those that are clearly far away from the “three” – their cost is clearly overstated, so not always the prices for hotels in Sri Lanka correspond to the “stuffing” hotels. This is the island specifics of accommodation.

Selection of the best hotels in Sri Lanka 3, 4 and 5 stars was compiled on the basis of options found on the service Ostrovok, which helps to find the best prices among several leading booking systems. We tried to select accommodation with the following criteria in mind:

  • only hotels verified by travelers with high ratings;
  • the most inexpensive hotels in Sri Lanka in their category (3, 4 and 5 stars).
