I am very fortunate this trip to be staying the night in Sri Lanka, courtesy of Sri Lankan airlines.
They give you a free 3 star hotel, with 2 meals, refreshments and transfers included. It was only a 90 minutes flight from Goa direct to Colombo, everything went smoothly (but the food was not good).

Before I went through immigration, I collected a hotel voucher and then you proceed to the stop over counter.

I stayed at the Blue Oceanic hotel in Negombo. 12 km from the airport, 40 km north of Colombo city. I had already checked out the hotel on the net and was disappointed when I learned it was not near the city, but in a touristy beach area.

My disappointments faded fast when I arrived, I walked through the lobby and onto a golden beach. I have never stayed in a proper beach resort before with the sand just steps away from the door of the room.

I got some great pictures, I do recomend this hotel. The room was clean, really big, the Air con very cold. The food was really tastey.
