Ranmal Rest & Tourist Hotel Sri Lanka

Overview of Ranmal Rest & Tourist Hotel

The "Ranmal Rest & Tourist Hotel" is located on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka in the southern suburbs of Hikkaduwa.

Hikkaduwa is one of Sri Lanka's great tourist centres. Unlike many other tourist centres, there are many very good restaurants, beach bars and small snack huts on the beach serving refreshments and fruit juices.

The "Ranmal Rest & Tourist Hotel" is located just off Galle Road, right on the beach front. There are 21 bedrooms in five different price categories plus two cabanas, providing pleasant accommodation for both comfort and budget-conscious visitors.

The tourist centre is 1 km distance, or a comfortable ten-minute walk. The old town of Hikkaduwa is a 20-minute walk away, or you can take one of the inexpensive three-wheeler taxis, which are available virtually around the clock.

The Ranmal Rest & Tourist Hotel was established in 1981 as a small guesthouse with five simple rooms and in the following years refurbished and enlarged several times.

In 1992 the Ranmal Beach Restaurant was opened at the first floor with look onto the ocean and in 2003 two Cabanas at the seaside were added.
