We booked to stay in a deluxe sea view bungalow for 9 nights. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We felt that it was very private and it wasn't looked over at all. We personally would have preferred to be slightly further away from...More
This was our first hotel in our 2 weeks vacations. After long long flights we were exhausted and first great discovery is when you get out of a car and step on "boat" that takes you " there" . It feels like you are stepping...More

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.
