I am travelling to SL from 19 to 30 April with my mum and would appreciate any guidance or tips on our proposed trip.
We have arranged a private tour as follows:
2 nights Colombo ( we only arrive at 5pm on the first day): Galle Face Hotel
1 night Hill country : Heritance Kandalama
1 night Kandy: Hotel to be confirmed
1night: Tea region: Heritance Tea Factory
3 nights beach resort: TBC
1 night Galle: TBC
We are planning on doing a few day trips from each region.
I initially wanted to spend three nights at the Anantara Peace Haven in Tangalle as the reviews seemed great, but our guide has suggested the Mariott at Weligama instead. The online reviews seem good, but it strikes me a busier and more generic feeling resort.
We would like a relaxed, less commercialised beach destination, but one that also has good nearby restaurants .
Has anyone had recent experience with either? Any suggestions on which resort and town would be preferable are welcomed!!
