We just returned from a memorable two week trip in Sri Lanka, and would highly recommend Off 2 Sri Lanka for service that is friendly, professional and organised. We worked on our itinerary with Mr. Menaka who also recommended hotels within our budget. While we were on our trip, Mr. Menaka called to check in on us and wish us a great trip.
Our driver Tissa picked us up from Mirissa and we proceeded to visit Tangalla-Hatton-Kandy-Pollonaruwa-Sigiriya-Dambulla and Negombo. Tissa was a gentleman, extremely friendly, thoughtful and knowledgable. He gave us some great tips for local and authentic restaurants, and suggested some great stops to try local curd, quality cashews and tea.
Our trip was seamless- we saw more than what we had planned and had such a wonderful experience overall. Would highly recommend Off 2 Sri Lanka and our driver Tissa, and hope we'll make it back to Sri Lanka again!

Our Turtle Conservation Project

Reviewed By Cwood59

The plight of these lovely creatures from man made cruelty was sobering and saddening. Turtles with limbs missing from fishing nets and blind ones from fishing gone wrong and alarming harm done to them in hunting them for food and poaching their eggs made it a sad testament of human cruelty. The conservativion project requires our support in mitigating this. Do visit.

Bellanwila Rajamaha Viharaya

Reviewed By Randil H - Horana, Sri Lanka

Bellanwila Rajamaha Vihara is a sacred temple situated about 10 km away from Colombo. The temple was built when Sri Lanka was a monarchy. People from all nearby cities visit there, sometimes even from other districts. The temple is situated in an urban area although the place is calm and peaceful. Most of the visitors to the temple are from nearby cities. There is a grand shrine room with a very high standing Buddha statue and also many other images and statues related to Lord Buddha's life and Buddhism.

Reviewed By Jan p

We hired Thilak for 6 days driving us around in Sri Lanka. We never had any unsafe feeling during the trip whilst the traffic can be crazy in Sri Lanka. When needed Thilak provided invaluable suggestions what to visit within our schedule. I personally liked that he is a quite person that gives us all the privacy we needed during our trip but could provide all the necessary information as guide when we asked about. Very honest person and helped us out during our trip. The perfect driver for vacation trip or business trip in Sri Lanka.

Water World Lanka

Reviewed By ChuckOfAllTrades - Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

I've been to several Aquariums and this is one of the best! LOTS of varieties of fish - perhaps a hundred - and lots of care to explain each of them. The experience is great - tunnels, good railings and lighting.
The underwater tunnel is a lovely - if short - attraction. The entry fee is close to nothing. So while it's a bit of a bother getting all the way here, it's certainly worth it.
Highly recommended.

Weras Ganga Park

Reviewed By Anuka C

Nestled in the Bellanvila - Attidiya bird sanctuary, this is a peaceful and relaxing plot of wetland environment known as Weras Ganga Park one of local's famous weekend destination. Conceptually, this is similar to Diyatha uyana in Battaramulla though it is not sophisticated as such.
You can easily get there by Dehiwala - Maharagama road situated close to Bellanvila Raja Maha Viharaya. There are two other entrances from Rattanapitiya and Pillewa temple road. At the very entrance, the park building is situated consisting some Grade B restaurants and juice bars, park office, toilets, sitting area with cement benches and tables under the shade of Nadun trees and bicycle rental center.
The walking and cyling tracks run parallel encircling splendid Bellanvila lake which is filled with water lilies, paddy fields and sacred Pillewa temple.
Open to public on daily basis. Entrance is free. Parking available. Usually weekends get crowed with locals. People visit mostly in the evening. You can rent a bicycle and have a ride around the park while enjoying cold breeze from the lake. They charge about 100 LKR per hour. Unfortunately, you can not have a boat ride since the lake is infested with crocodiles.
Since this is a wetland you can easily spot many aquatic birds including pelicans, cormorants, water hens, kingfishers, eagrets, lap wings, openbills and bee eaters. Bird watchers love this place.

Reviewed By Chathini - Colombo, Sri Lanka

Location - convenient and they have parking.
Service - I got done gel color soak off and a cut and polish. And it was terrible. That person filed the top of my nail (she said she can't remove the gel color without filing the top coat first). This is the first time I have done that as every time OPI people just remove gel color easily using foil.
She damaged one of my nail bed, So I asked to stop it. She couldn't communicate well she is an indonesian I think. And they charged 2500/- or 2000/- LKR for the soak off and for the cut and polish. ridiculous.
In OPI they use all the OPI products and its excellent service. May be they are good for massages, but not for nails. They have lot to learn and they got that potential. And of course they have a manager with a very bad mouth.
