I LOVE this place. I've been there three times now and it is better every time. Staff (Chandra, Roshan and Guyan) are truly the best in the business -preempting every need, want and desire.
First time we went was for a 25th wedding anniversary with a bunch of rugby friends in 2009, second time was family friends and a bit tamer in 2011, last trip was for a friends 50th and Ambalama hosted dinner for 40 people from all over the globe....fantastic. Great location, world class food and service, beautiful vista, amazing beds/linen, beautiful bathrooms/outdoor showers...fantastic value and seriously - the best Sri Lanka has to offer. Treat yourself.
