Thank you - you've overwhelmed me this morning. Having logged onto Trip Advisor for the first time this week, it occurs to me how fortunate we all are, that the hotel seems only to attract, fine, decent people with whom we can feel privileged to share this life with. In case you don’t know, 64 of us depend on the hotel moreover you for our livelihoods. As do the 240 or so family members of the team. What drives all of you and others to write so eloquently and passionately I will never know, but I remain humbled and in awe. Your reviews read more like fan-mail than hotel appraisals; your every word, much more about support for us than simply tipping-off fellow travelers about the merits of our hotel or restaurant. In your own words, these ten 5/5 reviews are Juste splendide – in fact I’ll go one better, they are Outstanding!!! THANK YOU. All of us owe our Amazing lives in this Absolute Paradise to our patrons - whether first timers, regulars or friends. You are all remarkably kind and thoughtful, Utterly Fabulous and Completely Unique. Without any doubt, my own life is now Everything I ever dreamed about before I built this ‘Hotel/Cinema Paradiso’ – all thanks to you and people like you. And, you should know this too; this Awesome place, this Fabulous hotel with stunning Infinity pool as one of you generously describes it, was built for YOU, not only so I could dine out on Fantastic Dinners whenever I want - though one may reasonably deduce, I eat more than my fair share! These thanks go to each one of you; for your excellent good company, valuable good custom and outstanding Trip Advisor review. The way we see it is, we couldn’t live without you. Extra thanks go to those who arrived laden with goodies from the ‘outside world’ and the remarkable offer to add to my music collection and meet up the next time I’m in New York – you cool folks only dropped by for dinner! Fabulous, thanks, I’d love too. My final extra thanks go to guests who submitted reviews for the hotel AND its restaurant Oceanfront, thus helping ramp up its profile I hope. I sincerely hope we have the privilege to host and make you smile all over again, in the meantime PLEASE keep spreading the word and going anti-plastic - if we’re to continue our journey you really must I’m afraid!! From us all… I wish you blissfully happy lives and fond memories of Sri Lanka, Buckingham Place and its Team. Until we meet again… Our warm regards and respect, Nick & the Team.
