Built in Dutch colonial style, this traditional clay-tiled resort boasts over 200 years of history. Set on three acres of garden space, the hotel’s rooms offer plenty of private facilities. The Mountbatten Suite, for instance, features a private garden and plunge pool. This high-minded getaway also gives back to the Sri Lankan community through its gift shop, which sells a collection of unique items sourced mainly from small craft producers in Sri Lanka. The store donates all its profits to charity.
