The hotels are ideally situated for exploring the local history of the area, which was once a trading hub fought over by major colonial powers. Visit the Kalutara Bridge, learn basket making and then return to the hotels in Kalutara to try Arrack, a refreshing drink made from coconut sap. Kalutara holidays offer a traditional flavour of Sri Lanka, with luxury hotels and a long sandy beach.
