      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.

      ... cinnamon smell. We saw green bee eaters, blue kingfishers, another bright yellow and green bird, that was highly visible when it flew but almost impossible to spot once it landed. Red legged plover like birds, wild pigeons, small finches in busy flocks and 3 Osprey who were working the area. We spotted another large eagle with a yellow bill and head. Every couple of minutes we saw another water monitor, they were everywhere. We passed under one in a tree and shortly after ...

      ... lane and in to the yard and a welcoming committee. The resort was built on Coco Bay, a shallow bay, not as clean as we are used to, but protected from the main ocean with a headland resulting in gentle waves and no rips. The rooms were sensational, and we had a butler who explained we had many menu's, minibar, room service dining, pillow and soap menu - I chose the Alo Vera, may help the sunburn!! We chilled on the balcony until we heard a lot of ...

      ... the only way to get there was then to take a three-wheeler to finish off the journey. We normally don’t like doing this very much because it is quite costly but the driver wanted less than 10$ for the trip so we agreed of course.

      The homestay we found in Deniyaya has once again the nicest family owners. We quickly get to talk with one of the brothers that will take us tomorrow to Sinharaja forest reserve and that’s about all we can digest ...

      ... but they are yummy little fried bowls made out of ground rice mixture. Fill them with a fried egg or drizzle them with honey for a winning breakfast. Or you can use the mixture to make very thin noodles called string hoppers. Little mounds of string hoppers are good for mopping up your veggie curry or (my favourite!) stuff them with grated fresh coconut and honey!! And did I mention we saw a baby wild close we could have touched ...

      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 ...
