Hi there,

Hardly in Waikkal itself. In Negombo however, 10 mins by (frequent) bus or by tuktuk, there's plenty of shops, bars, restaurants etc.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Just outside the hotel there is a seafood restaurant, and if you turn left from the hotel there is a couple of small shops selling gifts etc.

If you go out of the hotel from the beach there are three shops one to the left Tesco, and two to the right Asda & Sainsburys again selling gifts pop etc.

Asda also make clothes to order we did not have any made but people who did seemed pretty happy.

You can also book tours at Sainsburys Asda & the small shop up the lane from the front of the hotel.

Hope this helps if you want to know any more please ask.

One more thing the hotel food & staff are fantastic.
