We spent an idyllic 4 nights here at the tail end of a two week holiday in Sri Lanka and it proved to be the perfect place to relax. From the moment we arrived, the warmth and friendliness as well as the professionalism of Nick and his staff ensured that every aspect of our stay in this stunningly beautiful location was catered for. So much has been written about the luxurious accommodation and cuisine that it's difficult to add something new - suffice to say everything was delicious. I was surprised to see a comment made in another review questioning the need to place one's order in advance - sometimes several hours before dinner; to me, this was an eminently sensible practice as it resulted in the perfect marination time for meats and spices, less wastage and a freshly cooked meal. As I shiver in bleak old Blighty in February I remember the heat of Tangalle - walking on the near deserted Rekawa Beach to catch the sunsets; sweet Ginger grazing happily by my lounger; the warmth of that sparkling pool in the early evenings and so much more. 'The Voice' is playing as I write and I'm transported back to breakfast at BP, delicious bread and fruit, to the accompaniment of the exquisite Andreas Scholl -my vision of heaven...and Nick's?. And when wearing my silver shell, bought at Nick's ' shop', I have Sri Lanka close to my heart and feel a real pull to return; when I do BP will definitely be on the itinerary.
