The Kingfisher was recomended and we ended up staying 8 days. It is situated right on the beach and you can hear the sea lapping under the resaurant. The rooms are 5*, large and airy, satellite TV, large bathroom and wonderful sea views from the balcony. There are only 4 rooms so the service is very good. The restaurant is always busy as it is very good. The staff are very well trained and responsive to the customer. There is free Wi-fi. The hotel is situated towards the north and calm end of the beach, good for none swimmers. One unusual feature is that all the staff are given the same day off a week so there is no breakfast one day a week, maybe a consequence of the Swiis half of the owners. They have no staff turnover here! You could try a trip to the fascinating Sinharaja rain forest, try Palitha, 041 2273368 for a guide and Jayantha 0777496490 for transport. Try Nilu for massage 0723381485. Bike ride the paddy fields Alex 0777906156.
