This was my First Hotel Check-in In Srilanka. I found the place so solitary. A great escapade from the bustling city :). The five hour travel from airport to Balapithiya was exhaustingly fun. we were the only guest for that time being. so the staff manage to really pamper us. The manager and staff were so helpful and friendly they even picked Fresh Mangoes for me for a quick snack :). We stayed for 3 days. and was well accomodated. we Took the second great suite which is in the ground Floor "GIN" which has an Open flowing Living, Dining and Bed Area. the Bathroom was huge. thou we had a small private Jaccuzi.we actually booked the Best suite that they have, which was at the 1st floor of the hotel.unfortunately they didnt booked it for us. They have a pool few steps away from the suite. we managed to have a tour to different suites that they have. i love the local designs and Interior.The food were great. just the pancakes wasnt that prepared as i was expected.
