How easy to find budget accommodation in Bentota ?

We are two students planning to stay in Bentota area for two weeks in October during our five week holiday in Sri Lanka.

If you have any information or contacts, please share.

Thanks heaps.

Hi there,

WHY Bentota? It does have some budget acco but a bit remote, more riverside (--> mozzies galore!) than beachside. Induruwa, 6 km south, could be closest option for affordable beachside acco.

But Hikkaduwa or Unuwatuna are a lot more suitable for budget acco, also beachside...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

My friend insists that Bentota has a nice beach but unsure if the accommodation is affordable.

We want stay very close to the beach.

Well then it's either Induruwa or Hikkaduwa. Not Bentota main town, sorry for the friend and his not-too-complete-research...

All the best,

Prices in guide books are usually outdated before the books hit the streets;-)
