    The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved. The food is excellent but you may be sharing it with chipmunks and crows as some of the guests insist on feeding them this needs to be stopped. Facilities are second to none, a full gym, spa, two souvenir shops and large swimming pool.

    ... me she wasn't going to die, she just needed to stay put and sleep and that I should go alone, the guesthouse owner promised to look after her so I took a bus to Dambulla to stay there for the night.

    The attraction at Dambulla is the incredible Golden Temple, a world heritage site, billed as the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. The caves are at the top of a massive 150m high rock that looms up, the walk up to ...

    ... hotel. The road is so close to the ocean, I can feel the salt spray on my skin during parts of the ride back to the hotel. Palms, boats, surf and fun in the sun. I love this place. Afternoon cricket and volleyball - fighting to find wifi - I think I got a total of five minutes wifi access in the past 3 days... So I'm having "technical difficulties" providing up to date blogging. Embracing no wifi and 3 of the best, piña Colada's to ...

    Sinharaja Forest Reserve, that mysterious ecosystem located in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka is home to a variety of endemic species of birds, reptiles and plants.

    After an hours drive from Deniyaya, we accessed Sinharaja through the Pitadeniya Entrance, one of three entrances to the forest reserve.

    It was the bird calls that added life to the early morning environment and atmosphere that preceded us, as we ...

    The plan was to make our way over to the East of the country to avoid the monsoon which was due in the West and South. It was going to take at least 5 hours to get there though so we decided to make our way back to Mirissa and spend our last week there as we loved it so much. We even checked into the same guest house as the family was really lovely and rooms were nice. Within about an hour of arriving I had seen a huge snake in the guest house garden. Luke had popped to the shops and I ...

    Our last day with our guide Dhanu who has been fantastic. He has been with us throughout Sri Lanka and it was a shame to say good bye. We drove from the tea plantation to the coast for our final destination Koggala, Galle. We have never seen a highway so quiet and this road is great for heading to the coast. It took us around 6hrs but lots of stunning waterfalls and tea fields before the highway then a gorgeous coastal road for the final part. The resort ...
