      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.

      ... as nutty as a fruitcake but now a year older too! We celebrated in style by being taken on a day long tour around the Galle area in a tuk tuk! We met 3 Richmondites - our driver and two of his friends were at Richmond College in Galle together many years ago - very bizarre! One of his friends is a tea plantation owner called Guasoma Wa****sekara who gave us the most enlightening tour of his beautiful plantation. He even sells his ...

      We decide to hire the services of a friend of the family that has a three-wheeler. For a small fee, he takes us most of the day around the sights surrounding us: Kolawe****ma temple, Lumbini tea factory and Katopola, the home of the rock temple. Both temples ...

      ... serving them really early in the morning. Rice and curry was our only option, but what an option it was. The table was groaning under the weight of the curies that they brought out to go with an absolute mound of red rice. There was dhal, some sort of green veg, potato curry, aubergine and tuna. It was sensational food and it cost 200 rupees (1) a head! It was also an experience that I will never forget - I don't think they get many tourists in ...

      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 ...

      ... Mirissa and would definitely go back for a few days if I came to Sri Lanka again... especially to visit this man's little shop on the beach. He tailor made us some bunting and we each bought a huge indian style patchwork throw for less than 8 pounds! I would have got the Warden one but space will definitely become an issue when I hit the markets in India like a mad woman.
