Me and my friend are travelling for 6 months and will be in Sri Lanka in december for 8 nights.
We want to stay very near to a beach to chill out and relax as we will be coming from a crazy month in India and will need to unwind before hitting Koh samui for xmas and Koh pangyang for New Year!

We will be seeing Sri lanka but most likely on we will go on tours from wherever we will be staying. so any advice there will also be great!

So can anyone recommend a nice beach to chill out on, which also will have a bit of nightlife?

If any can also recommend any budget hotels that they have stayed in that would be great to, as we are looking to book this before we leave.

Probably you can chill out in Negombo area which is close to airport....Night life? i doubt very much in Negombo.There are many hotels in this area.
This area is a bit far from the city and takes about 1hr to reach the city.

Incidentally, since you will be visiting in Dec, please check visa regulations. Earlier SL government wanted to remove visa on arrival facility but the very next day it has put its order on hold the very next day. So no idea when and what way SL government will take action.
