Hi we are a couple travelling to Sri Lanka from 30 Dec 2012 - 3 Jan 2013
We have booked our stay for 3 out of 4 nights at hotel sumadai through our local travel agent.Our budget per head is approximately 40000 Sri Lankan rupees. I have the following questions.
We arrive in Colombo at 2:30 am (rather odd time) do hotels permit early check-in?
Do i need to book my transfers In advance i.e. Colombo - Beruwala and forward/return.
How far from our hotel are the party areas/lively beach side restaurants/bars/clubs?
Where could we go for new years?
Can i book a self-drive car? Or is it better to hire with a driver?
I would like to scuba dive or at least snorkle is there clear water around Bentota or southwards ?
Any advise and help will be much appreciated.
