After a long flight from Europe we finally got to Colombo and instantly travelled 4 and a half hours to get to hotels Camellia, so we were exhausted and frustrated as well when we arrived. However, from greetings to check-out everybody was nice, helpful, and happy. We arrived late at around 11pm, but since there was a large group having late dinner we could join and have some food as well. On the dinner buffet I counted 15 different chafing dishes full of food, and a huge number of other items even sushi. And it was like that every day for breakfast and dinner. Amazing amount of great food. The hotel itself looks like many hotels in Bali, Thailand or Egypt. Large garden with pool, an open restaurant area and several 2-story bungalows with 4 rooms each. It is perfact for relaxation. The rooms are very large, bright with classic colonial furniture. We stayed 2 night in this little paradise and would definately stay there again.
