Safe Places to Stay in Peaceful Sri Lanka

- Melissa Mewdell,

Beautiful beaches, great weather, plenty of sun shine, wildlife and culture are plentiful on the island nation of Sri Lanka. And now that the conflict is over in Sri Lanka, and travel advisories are being lifted or relaxed, it is re-emerging as an exciting, safe travel destination in Asia.

Of course, the best part about vacationing in a peaceful Sri Lanka is that it can be much more financially reasonable than other destinations in Asia: a very important factor in today’s economic climate!

If you’re traveling to Sri Lanka, the safest places to visit are in the south and western parts of the country. We give you our top three luxury hotels in Sri Lanka below:

The Regency at The Galle Face Hotel:

Recently refurbished, this luxury hotel in Colombo boasts amazing views of the ocean and provides guests with a lot of value. Each of the 80 rooms at the Regency at The Galle Face Hotel caters to both business and leisure travelers and are well equipped for all of your needs.

Super luxury suites include living and dining areas and are equipped with relaxing Jacuzzis (either placed in the room or on the balcony overlooking the Ocean).

What a way to capitalize on the view!

The good news for people who book this hotel through Kiwi Collection is that they get special VIP treatment due to our special relationship with the hotel. So, guests get complimentary room upgrades when available, the general manager’s VIP amenity, a bottle of sparkling wine, complimentary breakfast, early check-in and late check-out, a welcome drink for two, a welcome letter from the GM, a box of chocolates and a complimentary voucher for the Regency Tea Lounge.


Located in the picturesque town of Galle, Amangalla is a tiny boutique hotel that’s made up of buildings that are over 400 years old! The hotel features seven bedrooms which are right next to the reception area on the ground level of the Middle Street Wing.

Six chambers are located in the Church Street Wing and face the Fort ramparts. The hotel has four Garden Wing chambers and eight suites.

For a special occasion, ask for the Garden House – which is situated within the resort gardens. This two-story house features a private terrace and balcony.

Galle is an extremely interesting place to visit. Not only was it historically the main port on the island, it is full of old colonial architecture and is a good destination for lovers of history.

Guests who book this hotel through Kiwi Collection can take full advantage of our special relationship with Amangalla. Guests will receive a complimentary room upgrade when available and a bottle of champagne upon their arrival!


Amanwella is perfect base camp if you want to go on an exciting safari in Sri Lanka, or go diving in the Indian Ocean. This boutique hotel is close enough for guests to take day trips to Sri Lanka’s Uda Walawe or Bundala National Parks.

At only 30 rooms, you are sure to get an intimate experience here, and you won’t find a nicer setting for kicking back and relaxing. Amanwella sits amongst a mature coconut grove and is right on the beach. The suites at these hotels open on both sides, letting in cooling sea breezes (which is perfect for staying comfortable on a hot day).

Other great features of this hotel are its 45-metre infinity pool and two large sun terraces with sun loungers.

Guests who book this hotel through Kiwi Collection not only get the best available rate for the hotel, but also some added value during their stay, such as a complimentary room upgrade (subject to availability), and a complimentary bottle of Champaign upon arrival.

  1. I agree with you. Sri Lanka is beautiful country and I hope that it is preserved and always nice. If African countries had more money many of the troubles would not happen, just my thought.
