For: Intentions to Relax gone wrong...
Stay: Jetwing Blue (near airport), Earls Regency (not near airport), Vivanta by Taj (really really far from airport - but really really nice)
I did a driving holiday (Earls Regency was the nicest hotel out of the gazillion hotels that I stayed at during my driving tour around Sri Lanka).
Sri Lanka is sweet, super nice for tea lovers who like long drives.
Bring insect repellent…and bird repellent...as the first present I got was on my head from a bird...nice...did I mention bring wet wipes too? They're the next best invention to post-it notes.
For someone like me with a very very short attention span, taking a driving tour around Sri Lanka and moving through multiple hotels was not exactly a holiday. Choose one beach resort and stay there...
