Has anyone reading this been to Galla or Wella in November or December and also January or February ?
Are there significant differences in weather and temperatures between those 4 months ?
Sea conditions ?

I went to the Galle area in January - very hot, one brief torrential rain storm when we were dining at Amangalla, as it happens. I believe the seas around Sri Lanka are always lively and many beaches are unsuitable for casual swimming. Quite unlike the Maldives or the Seychelles, more like the beaches in India.

Nov and Dec can be very rainy. Jan to March is the best time. Itís always going to be hot and humid.

Well , thanks , just as we arranged with you - lots of time in the library , Londonjetsetter . When not by / in the pool or spa at Galla or beach / Beach Club at Wella . Have always appreciated this room at Amans .
Perhaps aim for late January but seems peak times at Tea Trails too .
