Sri Lanka, Negombo – Aradhana Lake View Residence

As we arrived in Sri Lanka in the very early hours of the morning, we just wanted a simple room for a few hours sleep near the airport before beginning our Sri Lankan tour and Aradhana Lake View Residence fit the bill.

We booked a ‘family room with balcony’ and the hosts kindly checked us in at 2am and we promptly went the sleep in the comfortable beds. The two double beds were comfortable with good quality linen. The bathroom was large with an open shower, sink and toilet.Aradhana Lake View Residence_Negombo_Sri LankaThe balcony had a table and chairs with a nice view over the lake, unfortunately we weren’t there long enough to enjoy it.Aradhana Lake View Residence_Negombo_Sri Lanka_1We had confirmed a breakfast time of 9.30am and it was served on time, although we wouldn’t have described it as an “English breakfast” as advertised but it was still tasty with eggs in tomatoes, rice, toast, fresh fruit with tea and coffee making facilities.

We were kindly given some information from our hosts about our possible travel options down to Bentota and we were on our way by 11am.
