This place I really can't rate highly enough, probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed hotel wise. The welcome by Nick and his team was very warm and all the staff were so nice and helpful, the best service we received at any hotel during our whole 2 week holiday. The food was absolutely amazing, we had fresh tuna, curries, seafood pasta and the best breakfast! I really can't rate the food more highly, it really does compare to top London restaurants, possibly better.....
What is so great was the team have taken all the annoying parts of a hotel and removed them completely, so for example; breakfast you can have whenever you want from 5am up to 1pm, no signing after every drink/thing you order (unless you want to) -there are loads more examples of these little touches that in our opinion are genius!!
We stayed in a suite, it was beautiful and clean, had a massive balcony, wonderful lagoon views, a bathroom which was bigger than our whole bedroom (possibly including kitchen as well) at home! Great room.
The only downside (which is being changed) is that you can't see the sea from the hotel, restaurant, pool etc, this is the only thing this hotel is missing although as i said you can walk and see in 2 minutes! However this is being changed /built and when this happens we think you couldn't get a more perfect place. One day I hope to return to Sri Lanka and Buckingham place, as our stay really made our holiday.
(We stayed at the end of November 2012)
