Well what can I say……………. Luxury boutique hotel concept taken to the clouds! I stayed at this absolutely stunning concept hotel for only one night and, as the manager himself pointed out, one needs more time to let oneself sink into the rhythm of the tranquil decadence that permeates this place. From the exquisitely detailed bungalows to the almost Olympic size pool, the place is just perfectly designed. The food is quite good (I think the asparagus soup though was from a can) and the people are just amazing accommodating. For an example I did complain about the soup and suggested a soup made from a local herb and guess what they served for the next meal?
If I was to complain I would say that the staff can be over bearing (but this could be just my sensitivity) and as a Sri Lankan feel that the theme may be somewhat contrived.
