Single female Club Hotel Dolphin


I am thinking about booking 2 weeks at Club Hotel Dolphin as a single female, in Sept.

Will i be safe? I'm pretty chatty so will make friends easily but i certainly don't want to find myself in any difficult situations.

And could anyone advise me on the weather in Sept?

Any infomation would be really helpfull

Thanks in advance

My boyfriend and I went to the Dolphin in June, but I have been on many holidays on my own as a single female. I did not see anything that would have worried me about going alone. From what I saw the sri lankans are friendly but not pushy towards women. The only thing is they may think it very odd a woman going on holiday alone. They struggled with the idea that I was not married and always refered to me as Mrs!!

Cannot comment on weather in September, June was delightful supposed to be raining everyday according to the forcast, but we only saw rain twice in two weeks. Very hot in the evening but the air con helps you sleep!

Have a really good time.

Hi Jo JO

While we stayed at The Dolphin last August/September we made friends with a Scottish lady who had travelled there alone, she really did have a great time and always seemed very chatty. She felt very safe and was great company to us and others.

Hello heather if your reading this...!!!

As for the weather when we arrived at the Hotel it was pouring down and this more or less lasted for the 1st 2 days, then we had fantastic weather with the odd short shower.

If you decide to book you have made a good choice...

Have a great time.

Hi Jo,ive been to the dolphin as a single female 3 times and had no problems at all.I found it was the english that had more questions about why you have gone alone. The staff are so friendly and the dolphin feels like home. The worst time i found was eating in the evening alone but you will always meet people. I was there in June and never ate at night alone but did in the day by choice. Go for it,its great. By the way if your out and about you may have men interested but they are harmless. Anna
