Located in the Ratnapura District in the Southern coast of Srilanka, Embilipitiya receives very few travelers, and is easily among Sri Lanka's less explored destinations. Travelers who pass through this sleepy hamlet, often stick to the more touristy destinations. Embilipitiya makes a great place to pitch your tents for tours to Udawalawa National Park, which is only 20 km north-east of Embilipitiya.
Embilipitiya has a range of diverse accommodation options including boutique resorts like Centuria Ayurveda Resort, which is located on the edge of the Chandrika reservoir, which is well suited for the modern travelers. The budget travelers too have many options to consider including home stays and guest houses, a list of which is available in our cheap Embilipitiya hotel list .
