    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.

    ... Hamilton. Now this vehicle has seating for 6, the two seats at the back being the highest, these we chose. We were the only people in the jeep as it proceeded down the pitch black roads at twice the speed of sound, at every hair raising bend we felt out Waterloo was just around the corner, if you will excuse the pun. Worst was yet to come as the four wheel vehicle and driver, buoyed on by some rain and muddy conditions gave us an exhibition of ...

    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 result was never in doubt. While Jen rested we cleaned up the beer and red, while Pauline polished off the bubbles. We sent off emails and managed to secure a van to Colombo tomorrow at a substantially reduced rate than had been quoted by the hotel. We ate dinner in, on the veranda and the meal was very good, served by Gayan who always seemed to be on duty. Wayne had to check his budget and it was to be an early start so we called it an ...

    ... I honestly will never look at a cup of tea the same way. It is quite a procedure to process the leaves that have been painstakingly hand picked by very courageous workers, that get paid according to the weight they bring on a daily basis (usually at least 16kilos each). As you know tea is very light so it required a huge effort day in and day out. The smell of tea in the factory is very pungent and our tour guide is very good and even quizzes us at the end to ...

    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 ...
