Three nights of bliss to start Sri Lankan trip
The service here was fantastic. The breakfast was amazing. Roof top swims a delight. Yes, a few things needed fixing up in our room but to be honest this is five star luxury at UK bed and breakfast prices. It felt special to be there and everyone treated you as such. If you get the chance seek out tuk tuk driver Jenudeen too. He is outside the hotel most days and has great prices for day trips and will take you everywhere all day.
