Train, if you have the time for this. One transfer at Colombo Fort station, and about 6 express trains per day. See www.railway.gov.lk for the timetable. Would be around 7-8 hours one way including wait for the transfer. Car with driver would cost 20 x the price (for 1 person) but take 6 hours.

All the best,
