Ranweli Holiday Village
Located on Waikkal, Ranweli Holiday Village is an eco-friendly 84-room resort nestling on an island of mangrove forests ensconced by Dutch canal on one side and the Indian ocean on the other. Very good impression from the beginning. The entry-point to Ranweli...More

With a nice exterior and lot of activities to do it's place with much potential. Front desk and restaurant staff is kind and always helpful. But it seems the attitude set by management to treat locals bad is the problem here. And such a bad...More
This was our 3rd visit and what a shock as snapper5188 has highlighted.

Lovely and clean, staff friendly enough although staff on reception thought they were on a rung higher than everyone else

WE would not have considered taking a trip to The Elephant Ophange from Ranweli as it would be about a 2.5 hour journey each way. It is also somewhere that is not advised to visit due to the treatment of the elephants - not actually an orphanage as such.
Many other places that trips go to are even further away. We had a tour for a number of nights with a car and driver, but if you want to use Ranweli as a main base you could still go off for a one or two night tour and return to Ranweli after that (car and driver is the way to do it - the good hotels have driver accommodation, so you would not have to pay extra for that.
Colombo well worth a visit IMO and that is only an hour os so away from Ranweli and you could even use a train to get there, but would need a tuk tuk or something to get you to the train station.

We did this tour with Walker tours as recommended by the Virgin rep. I believe it was about £80 for the 2 of us including a couple of other stop offs. Ok Anthony offers the same trip slightly cheaper but we preferred to be in a nice air conditioned taxi rather than a minibus . We had our own personal guide ( Ask for Adrian he was brilliant) we also went to the temple of the tooth relic on the same day and our guide was to knowledgeable . Enjoy your trips
