One of the most beautiful properties I have ever experienced!
Teeming with butterflies and birds, the magnificent bungalow in the jungle setting was perfect for our very brief honeymoon. Service was the best I've ever experienced in a Sri Lankan hotel and the training of staff certainly shows. Bandara was our waiter for the most of our stay and really added to our positive experience at the property.
The rooms were beautiful and the most well-appointed I've come accross in the country. The attention to detail in the rooms was excellent, from appliances to milk in the fridge and hair conditioner (thank you!) - and the outdoor shower, spectacular!
The food was amazing and it is apparent that this Sri Lankan chef has also had overseas experience which was apparent in the flavours and beautiful presentation of the food. I was also so happy that there were NO BUFFETS! Please keep it that way. The seafood meal we had was one of the best I've ever had and the rice and curry delicious. The cocktail menu was also a refreshing change from the usual standards. The barman explained that they were all his own creations and he should be commended. They were beautiful!
The only negative aspect of the trip was only have two nights there but we'll be back... can't wait!
