I have traveled the world and love to seek out charming, unique, relaxing places to stay. I stayed at Helga's Folly which is the number one of all the places I have been. An absolute gem that you cannot miss! So impressive, so magnificent, so charming. I traveled there with 4 friends but this place would also be perfect for couples or families. It is like a grand museum with so many goodies look at.
I remember lounging in one of the sitting areas; I could hear the Ink Spots "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire" playing. It sounded like is was being played on an old gramophone. My friends and I were treated to tea and scrumptious ginger cookies. Later, we went into the quaint movie theater room where we chose a movie of our liking. We kicked back and drank champagne, that was delivered in a top hat! Then there is the food. The cuisine at this place will delight even the biggest culinary snob. Its presentation, the taste, the dining room - ALL AMAZING!
As eccentric and elegant this place is, one thing it is not is pretentious. You feel at home the minute you start your drive up the curvy, forested road.
Even if you have never wanted to travel to Sir Lanka, you must go if even to just stay at this place. You will never forget.More
