coral sands would be a good choice for location though it isn,t luxury .

but if you choose the deluxe rooms you should be happy .

tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g304134-d477930…

another choice is the the asian jewel boutique hotel which is the number 1 reviewed hotel in all sri lanka though it is 2 km away from the beach and restauarant area though that is only a few minuites in a tuk tuk.

Thank you for your reply I will investigate Coral Sands and Asian Jewel. You say the latter is 2 kms from beach would it also be far from restaurants and is the Amaya Hills as bad as reports on trip advisor. Would you say Coral Sands wins over Amaya Hills ?

I really do appreciate your input.

Thanks

Hi ,

We stayed at the Asian Jewel last year and it was a short Tuk Tuk ride into town (5 Mins). it was nice to stay there away from town in a peaceful environment. Its near a lake and we went for pleasant walks at night around the area. The Coral Sands is a bigger Hotel right on the best part of the beach in the middle of town.

Good luck

the few negative reports on the coral sands are due to the standard rooms which would be poor value.

the deluxe rooms in coral sands would be better than the amaya hills but i don,t know what they will be charging for them.

the asian jewel is even better and also has its own excellent restaurant. but is 2Km or more from other restaurant choices

feb is an excellent month .
