Tropical weather and unlimited holidays Sri Lankan families mean one thing: more vacations! When it comes to looking for family friendly hotels there are few things we ought to consider. When travelling with kids be sure to look for at least one amenity or activity such as a playground, kiddies club or swimming pool. Of course we all know that travelling with kids can more often than not be a “trip” and not a “vacation”, but by occupying your children in an activity would give you free time to read book, relax or even go to the spa. If you are travelling with elders be sure to keep an eye out for facilities such as wheelchair access, lifts or ground floor rooms and especially a hotel that provides room service. So to make life easier we have put together a few places for your next big family vacation.
The ancient city of Anuradhapura is a great place to holiday at if you have children still attending school as it can also double off as an educational holiday. Let’s start off by saying that there is a LOT to see in the city of Anuradhapura. Also when travelling with families properties such as Yoho Galwalla Road become a favourite choice as it comes with a swimming pool, restaurant and is also located in close proximity to Kuttam Pokuna, Eth Pokuna and a few kilometres away to the other main attractions.
Popular among the tourists both local and foreign is the city of Hikkaduwa. A city that never fails to disappoint with its beautiful sandy beaches and safe waters. Accommodation in the area can be plenty to suit different budgets and Hikkaduwa has plenty of things to do when travelling with family. A favourite recommendation for family travel is Yoho Wewala Road that comes with a swimming pool, restaurant and other activities such as snorkelling, being located nearly 2.2.km to the Turtle Hatchery and 900 meters to the coral reef. For the adults looking for some R&R, there is spa facility just round the corner.
When it comes to travelling further East, Trincomalee would be an excellent location for a family holiday. Our property Yoho Post Office Road is great for families when travelling with toddlers or elders as it offers room service and an in-house restaurant to accommodate those might be tired after a long drive. A few of the city’s main sights of interest including Konesvaram Kovil, Fort Fredrick and Kanniya Hot Springs are also located close by.
