Oasis of serenity at Sri Lanka beach communitiy
Posted Jun 3, 2012 on Hotels
Located in a typical Sri Lankan beach community, the visitor finds tranquility as soon as he/she passes through the gates. Accommodations are in spacious bungalows with front porches and private front yards. You are greeted with a large, at least queen-size, bed covered with big tropical blossoms and partially draped with mosquito netting, which isn't necessary (in terms of mosquitos), but looks lovely. Restaurant is excellent, featuring locally-caught fresh fish, and is led by an accomplished and friendly chef - he invited me to witness his preparation of some vegetable curries using local ingredients. It was wonderful and educational. The property is located on the Bentota River, which empties into the sea downstream. The restaurant is riverside, so the ambience is awesome. The staff is welcoming and professional. I will return if ever in the area again!
