If you're after total relaxation, in the most beautiful, minimalist, boutique, attentive and well-positioned surroundings, them save time and stop searching further. We are on our last full day at Imagine, where we've been for almost two weeks, as a family of four.
Being an Engineer, the owner Marnix has taken huge pride in personally designing and overseeing the building of this stylish hotel, which is in a stunning beachside location. It's only ��2-3/$���4-5 away from Mirissa or Matara if you've ever got a strange urge to leave this oasis of calm.
Imagine was like a (tropical) home-from-home. It's got only 9 rooms - and Marnix and his staff give you such a warm and personal welcome. Our children (1 & 3) spent the entire time either in the (mini) pool or being attentively entertained by the staff.
An unexpected bonus was the amazing food. Imagine the nicest, slap-up meal you'd pay for once a year for a special occasion. This is what Wije, the Head Chef, delivered each night, with exquisite four-course meals each evening. For this reason, I'd recommend strongly going half-board rather than just breakfast.
We will be sorry to leave tomorrow but would like to come back. If, like me, you'd normally pay slightly less for a hotel in a developing country, all I can say is that it's entirely worth it for this unique place. We've had our best ever family holiday here - and it's set a standard that will be hard to follow!
