hotels in nuwara eliya, hikkaduwa and colombo

Hi, I am planning a 6 night trip with my husband and 3 year old son (at the moment I am planning on Colombo airport to hikkaduwa (2nights) then to nuwara eliya (2 nights) and Colombo (2 nights)...do u think its too hectic?? I was also thinking of whale watching, elephant orphanage, apart from the nuwara eliya's scenic place.

1. which is the closest safari?

2. can u plz recommend 2-3 specific hotels to check in the 3 places plz.

3. I am also looking for a local travel guide who will not rip us off.

Would highly appreciate if you could help. Thank you all

1. Re: hotels in nuwara eliya, hikkaduwa and colombo

Hi there,

1] Udu Walawe or Yala, BUT then you'd need to stay overnight there. And better drop one of the other bases. You could maybe swap Hikka for Tangalle, that is _just_ close enough as a base for Yala.

2] Better first give us a budget. 1-star? 5-star?

3] Aitken Spence, Luxe Asia, Red Dot, Tangerine or Walkers are safe but not cheap. Check forum to read how to get details of reliable freelance guides.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
