The Nasi Goreng that I had was really delicious... and the variety was there. Better if you could add a few more options into the menu though. But not complaining as the food was really good. Good customer service as well.

Hi, This hotel is located very much in the city and very close to shopping areas as well as restaurants. The nearest one is Crescat mall which is less than a km from the hotel. The next one is the newly opened Colombo City Centre which is also within 10 minutes distance. The other ones are also nearby. There are plenty of restaurants in nearby distance. Thanks

They have which will cost you around 5000 LKR (that's for a 4 seater car) but I would recommend hiring Uber for 2100 LKR . They have Indian Food and a lot of option for Vegetarians but not sure for Jain food. But I would tell you that the chef is very cooperative and will make things as per your specifications

I would suggest bentota to be last as it is closer to Colombo. First could be Kandy as it is closer to Colombo. However you will have a challenge with Check in to your hotel as you are reaching very early. So please check with them.

Colombo is a good place to park yourself in. From there you can go anywhere in the island by road. In Colombo, Amaravati on Galle Road is a pure vegetarian restaurant. The Taj Samudra offers excellent vegetarian food. Most top class hotels receive Indian visitors, and make it a point to provide vegetarian Indian food and snacks like idli, dosa, vada, upma etc.
