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.

We walked back to the fort and wandered thru the narrow streets checking out the shops, many of which were closed over lunch and not opening until after 2pm.

... serene and the monks happy to see us and show us around. The first one is impressive because of its tree and the frescos on the inside, the second because it feels as if it was carved inside the rock. There are red face monkeys to greet us and we watch locals lighting incense and candles. The Lumbini tea factory is a winner. First we get a free tour and some tea, which is way better value than most places that charges you and gives you nothing. The tour is so ...
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 ...
... led through the steps for 7 different dishes including 2 tuna curries, a breadfruit curry, dall, a radish curry and a salad. I tried to get value for money and eat as much of it as humanly possible, which was instantly regretted once we started our 2.5 hour journey to deniyaya which was an extremely twisty and windy climb into the hills. Sat and chatted to a retired English couple who had been on the road for a year and a German couple who were keen mountain climbers and were quite good ...
