I prefer boutique or clonial-style hotels or guest houses in Sri Lanka. Those are the best way to touch the country's folk culture and past glories. But you gotta try Jetwing chains - supposed to be the biggest and one of the most luxurious hotel chains in the country - for once during ur trip. Again I booked Jetwing Kurulubedda...

Only stayed here one night but had a great experience. Staff amazing, great sunset. Restaurant overlooks the ocean with great food and service. Beautiful pool sits alongside a small beach area to walk and explore on. Rooms are of substantial size with plenty of space
