When travelling to Singapore with Sri Lankan Airline and choice a long hours transit (19hrs) Sri Lankan Airline provide a free hotel + food. This time me and my wife stayed at the Catamaran Beach Hotel, our room was on the first floor overlooking the pool and the beach from the front door balcony, room was very big and clean, excellent bathroom with shower and clean towels. aircon. This hotel is now under the wing of the government as the previous owner when bust.
The staff was friendly and helpful especially the barman, you can ask him for anything and he will go and get it for you (changing money, cigarettes when shop are closed etc). Few hundreds yards from the hotel there is a massage shop where you can get a full body massage (1hr) for UK £5.
Thank you to Sri Lankan Airline, we don't mine staying there for 19hrs or even more ;-)
