Going to Sri Lanka was a last minute adventure. You would think, that planning such a trip takes a month as there are so many things to think of like injections, visas or places to stay. Sri Lanka is located in the Indian Ocean and is an island country of South Asia ( just below India on the map). We have booked the trip 2 weeks before flying there, so it was a very last minute decision.
A quick search on the internet about current injection situation, I learned that these are not required unless you planning to stay for longer than 2 weeks and planning backpacking. If you staying in hotels, then these are not required ( however advised) You can get your visa online ( currently 2019 around $25). Read more about my Sri Lanka adventure.
We had a bit of a problem finding the right hotel but Loveholidays came to rescue and we found our dream hotel! Loveholidays is a fantastic website where you can easily book all-inclusive hotels. You have also quick options
The hotel is located right in the middle of jungle with monkeys jumping on the trees. especially after the rain. Most rooms has own pool with a view over jungle. It’s real paradise. This is a boutique hotel with 12 individual Villas ( all different). They offer a real luxury experience and with all honesty and I have never seen a better customer service as in this hotel. All staff was attentive, yet discreet as sometimes staff can be overwhelming in some places but they were excellent. A real 5 star service.
To get to Galle Fort only takes a short trip by Tuk-Tuk( which is on its own another fabulous experience ) as well as plenty of things to do around from visiting the local beaches, tea plantations to experiencing Stilt Fishing.
We stayed at two Rooms in the hotel as we wanted to experience the secret garden of
Helliconia room was such a fantastic experience. Secret garden with its
Another room we loved was the Hibiscus. it was a very large room with also 4 posts bed and infinity pool but we got a bath in large bathroom
