AI or HB suggestions for Sri Lanka?

Jump to last reply

May I prevail on the collective wisdom of this forum for advice on our holiday to Sri Lanka? We're thinking of going around 27 April to 11 May. I understand this is a good time to go.

My friend requires an all-inclusive arrangement (or at least half board) at a classy 4 or 5 star resort. The really tough part is that it also has to be very affordable. (I know, it's a contradiction. But that's just what I'm working with.)

I only require proximity to a nice clean beach and great snorkelling (so calm water).

Using this resort as our base, we'd like to do day trips to see as much of Sri Lanka as we can. The resort should be within striking distance of things worth seeing.

However, we are not backpacker types and not particularly good at travelling independently in third world countries, especially if the traffic is bad. Self driving and bus trips are out of the question. Perhaps train trips?

At home, it's just cold and rain, and rush, rush, rush. The only time I can kickstart my fitness routine is on a holiday in a warm country. Preferably the resort would have, or be close to, a good gym with free weights. A 50 meter pool, if possible, would be a huge bonus.

Clearly we have become too picky in our travelling needs, but if anyone can help us identify the right resort it would be appreciated.
