          It appears that you can't buy Sri Lankan rupees until you arrive in Sri Lanka. I assume the hotel has an exchange facility. Has anyone used this or is it better to use an ATM? Does the hotel have an ATM?

          Sorry wrong advice. Exchange at airport,there are two kiosk as you are exiting airside. Then you can change large notes at reception in hotel, for tips.
