If you’ve decided to make Sri Lanka your destination of choice for your upcoming honeymoon then I think you’ve made a wise choice!

The tiny island nation is surrounded by a stunning coastline that is home to many pristine beaches. Then, inland its national parks are filled with wildlife including over 10,000 wild elephants! And further up in the mountains, the vast tea plantations make for some pretty spectacular views!

It’s a small country with huge potential and with the right hotel, you can turn your trip into the most romantic honeymoon ever!

To help you plan your post-wedding getaway, I’ve outlined the best and most luxurious honeymoon hotels in Sri Lanka. Of course, there’s a wide variety of choices for all budgets, and locations from the beaches to the mountains!

But why trust us?

Well, Bailey and I have stayed in over 250 hotels together as a couple since we began traveling full-time. We live in them, so our opinions come from experience and our keen eye knows what to look for!

amazing breakfast, private beach, luxurious
and modern rooms.
Price range:$144 – $317 per night

Our first hotel perfect for your honeymoon in Sri Lanka is located a short drive from the town of Mirissa. Mirissa is a great place to enjoy a honeymoon because of the sprawling white sand beaches and coconut tree filled hills.

There is also a lot of amazing things to do in Mirissa especially for a newlywed couple. Imagine seafood dinners on the beach and late-night cocktails before retreating to this stunning hotel!

The hotel itself is in a quiet area well out of town so you have all the peace and quiet a honeymoon deserves. The rooms are private and purpose-built for couples.

The pool is oceanfront and comes with comfortable lounge chairs for soaking up that Sri Lankan sun. They also serve amazing cocktails by the pool and the food is really something special.

This is really a great choice but honestly, don’t take my word for it and check out their reviews or to book here!

Also, book some awesome activities while in Mirissa…

Cape Weligama is arguably the nicest hotel in all of Sri Lanka. This place is for those wanting a true luxury vacation in paradise. Again, it’s located near Mirissa so you have the option of doing some daytime activities such as whale watching if you want.

However, if you’re here to enjoy the breathtaking cliff views and stunning infinity pools that’s ok too. There’s not one, but three restaurants on-site as well as bars and a spa and wellness center.

If your feeling like a romantic dinner then have your food served on your private dining terrace included in every room. There’s also an onsite fitness center for those who want to burn off all that delicious food!

Aditya Boutique Hotel is a small but luxurious hotel in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka. Similar to Mirissa, it’s another beautiful beachside town and there are plenty of things to do in Hikkaduwa! Some of the best activites include swimming with turtles, surfing, or eating fresh seafood.

The hotel itself has very large and spacious rooms that are both modern and well designed. Each room comes with its own private pool and that feature alone makes it the perfect romantic getaway.

Be aware, this hotel does have family rooms so it doesn’t solely cater to couples. However, with such a large living space and private amenities, you won’t want to leave your room.

Location: Unawatuna Beach
Star rating:5-star hotel
Booking.com rating:9.5 / 10
Highlights:Stunning pool, well priced, close to
Unawatuna, surrounded by nature, spa.
Price range:$100 – $200

Sergeant House is located only 150m from Unawatuna Beach. It’s not a beachfront property but it’s pretty close! This hotel is still surrounded by nature and the trees give the hotel a very private feel despite being close to town.

Although on the cheaper end of this list, it’s still a great hotel that has a very interesting vibe to it. If you plan on doing daily activities on your honeymoon then the hotel is perfectly located just off the main road to Galle and Mirissa Beach.  

I love this hotel but do worry that some may find the amenities a little underwhelming. So, my advice is to only consider this place if you’re into the simple decor and want to spend some time away from the hotel exploring Sri Lanka.

It’s not the type of hotel you’ll never want to leave, but, it’s a beautiful place to start the day! You can check the reviews, more photos and book your stay here.

suits, wellness center, very well priced.
Price range:$65 – $130

Amaranthe Bay Resort and Spa is located right on the river mouth near the beach of Uppuveli just north of Trincomalee. It has one of the cheapest rooms on this list, however, I could only recommend booking the junior suite. The junior suite comes with a spa bath perfect for a romantic getaway and stunning views of the river.

The hotel has a huge pool with a view, a wellness center, and a restaurant and bar by the pool. Being so close to Uppuveli means you enjoy all the amazing things to do in Trincomalee including visiting Pigeon Island, a marine national park filled with turtles, corals and even reef sharks!

As far as hotels close to Trincomalee in Sri Lanka go, this is one of the best rated! Overall a great budget option for those wanting a quiet but romantic honeymoon!

Star rating:5-star hotel
Booking.com rating:8.7 / 10

restaurant, rooms are private cabanas, large
private porch.
Price range: $260

Jetwing Surf Cabanas are a very well-priced luxury hotel right on the beach near Arugam Bay on Sri Lanka’s east coast. Each Cabana is set out in its own little area for maximum privacy and the traditional building methods make them absolutely stunning.

There are a few issues with this 5-star hotel though. The hotel itself is eco-friendly which means there is no air-conditioning or fridge in the room. Another issue is the beach here can be a little rough and swimming is only safe when it’s calm. However, with the large pool, it’s honestly fine.

This hotel is beautiful and anyone who loves environmental conservation will enjoy the effort this hotel makes to ensure they make ass little impact on the environment as possible.

The hotel serves amazing food but unfortunately doesn’t serve alcohol, however, they are happy for you to bring your own from a nearby shop. This will save you money and with their budget room at only $100 a night, it’s a great choice for those not wanting to break the bank.

Now, I haven’t saved the best for last, but, Jetwing Yala is pretty close! Here, you have the perfect variety of a beach resort on the doorstep of Sri Lanka’s best national park.

One day you could be relaxing on the beach having cocktails, and the next making unforgettable memories spotting elephants and other wildlife in Yala National Park.

As far as the hotel goes its very good value for money considering the price range. Even their cheapest room is large and luxuries with everything you could need for a great stay. However, for the small upgrade, you can enjoy a place with a sea view and spend your nights listening to the waves crash!

This hotel is a favorite of mine and when you take in its location, rooms, service, and price, its sure to be a tempting choice!

Why we use Booking.com

Everyone has a booking website they know and love. It can be hard to change, I mean you get used to the website and know how to find a great place. To be honest though, I’ve used them all and Booking.com is by far the best when it comes to price and selection (with the exception of using Hostel World for budget party hostels).

Here are a few other reasons:

rel=”nofollow” Booking.com

They price match

They also price match which means until you’ve checked in you can send them a price on another website and they’ll match it. This actually happened to some friends of mine. This one website had a sale so I emailed Booking.com to match this sale pice and my friend saved $500 on a $1500 booking (30% off)!

It means you can check prices last minute and if they’ve had a cancelation (and decide to put it on sale last minute) you get that same deal even months after you booked.

They have a “genius” booking rewards system

Make 3 bookings (and complete them) in one year and you’re a “genius.” This means up to 15% discounts, free breakfasts, and early and late check-in’s on participating hotels. This literally saves us so much! Many of the hotels above have genius savings!

Before you go!

If you’ve already decided Sri Lanka is going to be your destination for your honeymoon then you’ve made the right choice. I’ve traveled a lot but Sri Lanka is still one of the best places I have ever been to.

I hope this article on the best honeymoon hotels in Sri Lanka helped you pick out an amazing hotel for your romantic week away. If you need help planning your trip or just want so expert advice send us an email and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you have!
