There was some confusion on arrival about our room and we were given a rather strange layout of a room on the top floor; there was an empty unfinished room in front of the bedroom. After one night, we were moved to a room on the first floor. My only complaint about this room is the glass bathroom - there are curtains but it's just plain strange. The TV did not work for the entire length of our stay (one week). You can use the pool in the hotel over the road for not a lot of money. The family that run this hotel are very lovely people and we were even invited for a traditional Sri Lankan meal on one of the evenings. The hotel is in stages of being upgraded and when it's finished, if they get it right, it will be a lovely hotel.

... looking after ourselves a bit better. We took our first real dip in the Indian Ocean, which was like stepping into a bath. Jellyfish swim in these waters but the locals dive in so we followed their lead. A huge TV screen mounted on a truck was in place to show England being decimated by Sri Lanka in the Cricket World Cup. Fortunately we didn’t clock it till the match was over. In the evening the crowds massed to witness the sunset, and this time it made it all the way down ...
... boarded the plane and flew for 50 mins across the national parks and hills to another airforce base near Yala. After a short taxi transfer and another curry lunch at the next hotel we set off for safari on the back of the sort of converted pick up you wouldn't look out of place hanging off the back of waving an AK57. Phoebe really enjoyed the safari, Max not so much initially, mainly because the ...
The day didn't get off to a brilliant start when we got off the boat and couldn't find our taxi? It turned out he was a few kilometres away at a totally different gate! A very kind ( or so we thought) taxi driver helped us about by phoning him and then insisted on driving us to the port entrance which turned out to be about 500 mtrs away to find him. $10 dollars lighter and we realised ...
... the menu, again in my native tongue. It wasquite extensive with both local and international dishes featured and
did not appear overly expensive considering the type of place it was. I ordered a mutton dish and sat with my beer admire the view whilst I waited. Experience told me that I would have to wait a while and so it proved but it was not overly long and indicated to me that at least my
meal was being prepared freshly. I had not made the mistake of ...
... Whilst clearing Immigration / Passport control at the airport the officer had welcomed me very politely to the country and handed me a nice little folded tourist map of the country which I thought was a nice touch. Rather oddly, in the packaging of the map was a free mobile telephone SIM card for the Dialog network which seems to be the largest operator in the country. At the hotel I had taken the SIM card out and it was unlike any I had ever ...
