The best way is by taxi, but bus/train is cheaper.

Roughly LKR 14,000-15,000 and take approx. 4 hours.

check www.rentacarsrilanka.com ... price seems about right. You also need reliable service. This company provides official transfers to some reputed and reliable hotels.

We returned from Weligama to airport last week and used Kumar Guest Taxi Services on +94 7759 15593/amila_aryahoo.com. Very comfortable air conditioned bus from Weligama Bay Resort to Airport for 4 people and he charged us LKR11,000 and he paid highway toll.

Crappy info, as it also means one sloooww bus without serious luggage space; either Colombo Fort-Maharagama or Fort-Kaduwela (longer). Public transport in Lanka is not for the faint hearted...

Tnx,
