    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.

    ... was under the cloths. Beautifully worn old stairs led to the upper level where everyone was lining up to file past the open golden doors of the shrine to receive a blessing and offer gifts. Most were giving lotus flowers but also many had large wrapped gifts. Surrounded by lush lawn and gardens the whole place was very peaceful despite being very busy with people.
    I loved a tree next door to the temple that was a platform built around the ...

Highlight was seeing an Asian guy in the surf with a wind cheater/sheeter and a pair of swimming goggles. If only I got a photo #fashionweekasia The bus drops 5 of the group into the tiny town of Mirissa. I hear music.. Creepy, video game, ring tone music.. It's an ice cream tuk tuk! I'd broken away ...

    One evening as we sat polishing off a bottle of wine, one of the hotel chaps came rushing in asking us to follow him down to the beach. We were in for an impromptu wildlife experience. A turtle had climbed up the beach and was laying her eggs in a shallow dip that she had dug in the ...

    Set off Friday lunch from Colombo to head south to Galle taking in the Sri Lankan countryside and then the coastal road. Dinindu asked us if we wanted to drive but we thought that would be a mistake. We were kindly offered their vehicle for when we travel to Kandy but again we probably wouldn't survive the journey with mine or Steve's driving on these roads. It took us a few hours to get to Galle as we stopped off at different areas including a turtle ...

    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 ...
