"Best guesthouse option in Colombo"
Run by a friendly couple, this is probably your best guest-house option in Colombo. Unless you want a fully-serviced hotel in the busy city center and mind being 10-15 minutes away from the hustle-bustle, I can't think of a better place to stay, in a relaxed, residential neighbourhood by a green lake, with spot-clean rooms decorated with wooden furniture, and some of the best food I had in Sri Lanka, served in a homely hut in the garden. The staff is superb, from the owners to the three family-like assistants who will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant.

Thotupola Lakeside Resort

"Great hotel close to a Lake"
My wife and I came to Sri Lanka for our honeymoon. We found the local language to be a bit of a barrier and couldn't get around as easily on our own. Nayana from Thotupula Lakeside Resorts, genuinely helped us out in a manner, where we have never been helped before. She helped us co-ordinate the rest of the trip as per our preferences and budget and also kept in touch with us to make sure the rest of our trip went as planned. I have nothing but great things to say about the place and the staff, if you are the kind of person who enjoys checking-in and not venturing out, there are numerous in-resort activities that you can indulge in: wall climbing, aerial rope , kayaking and a swimming pool. If you crave Sri Lankan cuisine: the in-hotel prices are comparable to driving outside and eating out. From string hoppers for breakfast with fish curry to Sri Lankan dal, chilli chicken, fried rice and their local desert, all of them come in generous quantities making sure you are not left hungry. The hotel staff are extremely open to your comments and will happily change anything if needed. Since we were on our honeymoon, the staff also arranged to provide us with a complimentary fruit basket, which lead to a feeling of being truly cared for. Additionally, on check-out day we had to leave earlier before breakfast, on notifying the staff they arranged to pack us sandwiches and fruits in lieu of not being able to serve us proper breakfast.

"Beautiful botique hotel"
We stayed in the ground floor "executive suite" for around US$250 a night and loved every minute of our stay. The hotel is very sylish, intimate and luxurious - very much an imitation of the Anouska Hempel style. The room was romantic and huge with a private courtyard, hot tub and walk-in shower room with stone bench seats and oversized shower head. The staff were professional and friendly. Cooked-to-order breakfast was served in a tranquil courtyard. Only drawback was no liquor licence, so we ate out all nights. Great value for money (until the liquor licence comes through most likely!).

The Fortress Resort & Spa

Habaraduwa, Koggala - Map
Wish we stayed longer. My family (husband and 3 kids 8, 13, and 15) loved it. Luxe, spacious rooms with every amenity. Beautiful setting. Large clean pool. Friendly staff and good food. Does not have a great swimming beach. You can wade in, look at the reef and walk the long sandy stretch. Here are my only issues (you will find this at almost all Sri Lankan hotels): 1) any deviation from a service norm causes great confusion. For example, could I have a side of steamed veggies with that entree, double shot latte please, 1 beer and 2 glasses, etc 2) during breakfast most people want their coffee and tea served ASAP. Not here! You will wait, and wait and wait. Or perhaps your coffee will come and no one will bring you milk! It takes so long, the wait bordered on ridiculous. We travel a lot, and I have been to SL many times (and I'm 1/2 Sinhalese). Sri Lankans are not known for their service (unlike, for example the Japanese). This being said, The Fortress had the best service of any hotel I have ever been to in SL. Wish we stayed longer...

"Relaxing Hotel"
Our stay at Uga Ulagalla was by far the highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. Far from the busy roads and honking buses this multi acre property was an oasis. Bungalows are situated all over the property, some with private plunge pools. Rooms are large with an entry way, living room, dressing area, oversized bathroom and bedroom. The food was delicious with a variety of entrees between Western and Sri Lankan. The Sri Lankan food was outstanding. Arrival greeting and check-in is friendly, relaxing and low key. You are met in the lobby area of a beautifully restored old Dutch home. The restaurant is upstairs on the second floor - completely open to the surrounding views. Transportation around the large property is by golf cart or bicycles. Every bungalow is provided the requested number of bicycles. Our children happily explored the grounds at their leisure. There are multiple activities available to you and your family from nature walks to kayaking. Cost: it is not an inexpensive place to stay. Good service and attention will cost you more. However, on the subject of meals: meals are costly (lunch and dinner), and prices rival a fine dining restaurant in San Francisco or New York (US$ 28-35/entree), but don't quite match the quality for that price. A little steep for the middle of Sri Lanka.

"Excellent resort for couples."
Excellent resort for couples. Staff - exceptional, friendly, not overbearing. Airport pickup was pleasant and efficient with an ad hoc stop to pickup some local fruit for us to try. Checkin smooth and fast with a welcome sparkling wine and fruits served on arrival. Room - clean and comfortable with an opened bathroom. Balcony with seaviews (like all rooms) perfect for the complimentary afternoon tea. Delicious and plentiful meals with a good bar. Infinity pool is stunning with excellent views of the ocean. Location of the resort on a rocky promontory means access to 2 beaches which were both beautiful and peaceful. The sea was rough due to the low/monsoon season but fun and warm. Complimentary spa massage was wonderful. We had so many little things added on such as gift sweets and a personalised souvenir which really made us feel pampered and special. A perfect stay at the start of our honeymoon.
