We spent two nights here. It's off the beaten track but it certainly had the wow factor and a different ambience to anywhere we'd stayed before. We were treated as special guests from the minute we arrived. It's quiet, relaxing and top quality. Loved the care for the environment such as cold water in flasks not endless plastic bottles.

We are fussy 5 star travellers and not easily impressed. It is not really that difficult for hoteliers to implement certain standard features and thereby achieve a certain star category. What is difficult is making your resort personal and relevant and making it stand out in the ever-growing crowd of great resorts. Even more difficult is engaging with your guests... More

A Spectacular Review... Thank you for making our day... I’m unsure if I can adequately express my thanks and honest pride after reading such an eloquent and spectacular review. I will at least try. To read such an unequivocal, passionate testimonial in support of the hotel and its hard working Team is truly rewarding, not only for me. Already circulating... More

We stayed 8 nights in Buckingham Place. Actually we planed to stay 4 nights but we extend it, because of the delicious food and the terrific kind stuff. The Rooms are very big and we had fantastic view on the rekawa lagoon (suite no. 1). We come back for sure !!

We wanted a quiet getaway near the beach with a superior restaurant - which is exactly what we got and more! Off the beaten path and tucked between lagoon and beach, this super clean and modern resort provides a calm, catered environment for total relaxation. Our bathroom was giant and bed very comfortable. Nick has trained his staff on the... More

On behalf of us all, thank you for coming to stay and, for submitting such a blissful review with your anniversary photo! ...Occasionally, guests are a little surprised by our ‘off the beaten track’ location, though for many it’s the very reason for choosing Buckingham Place – as with yourselves.

Hard to add anything more to all the positive feedbacks. On a round trip through Sri Lanka we spend 5 nights at the end of our trip in the Buckingham Place. After navigating there by GPS (it is really hidden very well) you enter a piece of paradise overviewing the lagoon and a few meters/yards from the beach. We had... More

We just completed a terrific stay with Kalpa and his incredible team. Our family of four (children 9 and 12) thoroughly enjoyed the stay and the local activities. We initially hesitated on BP based on the "child policy" which they will provide in pdf. Through our experience, I believe as a father that the policy is appropriate for the resort.... More

We have just returned from two weeks in Sri Lanka and we had the pleasure of staying in 7 hotels during our stay. We chose Buckingham Place as one of these hotels as we had read such incredible reviews on TripAdvisor. I guess as a result we had high expectations! The positives: 1) The hotel is located near a beautiful,... More

We’re sorry... Firstly, thank you for choosing Buckingham Place and following up your stay with this helpful feedback. Whilst much happier to read ‘rave reviews’ I must take it on the chin if we get it wrong. To my knowledge, not since 2012 has a guest expressed such disappointment on Trip Advisor and I thank you for at least highlighting... More

From the moment we arrived and every day thereafter, you are treated like royalty, but not so that it is overdone. On arrival a flowered garland is placed about your neck, cold damp towels are offered to cool you down, luggage is swept away to your room, a personal guide through the hotels amenities and then a fresh fruit cocktail...

Picture this. You’re relaxing on a chaise longues in an immaculately cultivated garden, carved out of the wilderness. Tall curvy palm trees and an assortment of tropical vegetation surround the property. The swimming pool beckons if you are overheating, and the sound of the crashing waves from nearby Rekawa beach, famous for its turtle hatching, is a constant backdrop. Are... More
