This was my 4th visit since 2006 and it never disappoints!
I look at the Asian Jewel as home, as the staff remember returning guests and even remember how you like everything, my first morning down my pot of coffee was brought to me in the lobby, there is no doubting the professionalism of this boutique hotel. All your needs are taken care of down to where is good to visit as well as transportation to get there so you can get on with your holiday without stress and worry! This visit I visited Galle fort, did a little shopping and ate lunch in the peddlers cafe inside the fort, the hotel tuk tuk driver was very helpful and spoke good English so I learned a lot about the area!
I ate dinner every night in the Asian Jewel Restaurant, it was hard to choose as it all is so good, I didn't eat the same dish twice as wanted to try everything! Highly recommended and seeing the amount of outside diners the word must be well and truly out how great it is, even with people coming from other hotels to eat there.
The hotel is in a tranquil setting so you can really relax but know you are not far from the beach and town which is a lovely walk or tuk tuk ride away. An excellent location for photography and bird spotting.
I really liked the fact that the owners are always there to assist and make sure all is well, this is a real plus, Tanya was on hand for the whole of my stay to recommend where to shop and prices I should expect to pay which again was extremely helpful
I am already looking at dates to revisit in a years time. Thank you Asian Jewel x
