Sri Lanka 11 nights
July / August 2014
We are now unfortunately home.....We absolutely fell in love with Sri Lanka, we loved the food the people, the wildlife & the stunning beaches!!
Our driver was amazing he taught us both so much about the country, he made us laugh with so many stories! I honestly don't think it would have been the holiday it was without him. He took us to many different sights including to a local fishermans house for dinner near Trincomalee (We asked to go somewhere to eat somewhere outside the hotel & he arranged this!) it was one of the highlights for us, to visit his home the food was so fresh & amazing. They were also so welcoming to us both.
We found all the Sri Lankans to be so friendly & welcoming, and in all the hotel their service & attention to detail was outstanding!
We loved the elephant safari!! One of our favourite days was the elephant ride at the crack of dawn, followed by an early evening safari & then finished with a tree top BBQ! We loved the hotel in this area, and could watch the monkeys while lazing by the pool for hours.
I love the beaches in Sri Lanka.....and the beaches on the east coast were the best I have ever seen!!! I was in pure paradise, our driver took us to one particular beach which was just stunning! We also went to a little island off the coast, Ben loved the snorkelling here.
The hotels you arranged for us in the cultural triangle and on the west coast beach were amazing hotels! But oh my the east coast beach one amongst the jungle was something else, we never wanted to leave here it was just amazing!!! (The breakfast alone was out of this world!!) the new hotel near Trincomalee was stunning ultra modern! It isn't yet finished & the staff seem to not really know what's going on... It will be an amazing hotel, but I think it needs a year to be finished & for them to find there feet. Stunning place though. Just not as sharp with the service as the other hotels.
Thank you so much!!! We adored Sri Lanka, and you have given us both memories we will treasure. We will go back & see some of the places we missed off!! The hotels, and trips you organised were perfect for us.
And again thank you for all your help and support, you really did plan us such an amazing time in Sri Lanka! And we loved it more than we could ever imagine.
