WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
THE BUCKINGHAM STORY
Nick Buckingham’s relationship with the island is a love at first sight kind of thing. He first set foot in Sri Lanka back in 1998 and knew he had stumbled upon something truly special. A paradise island with old fashioned ways and new ideas waiting to happen.
Nick’s enchantment with paradise strengthened and his connection to the island grew deeper with each passing day. Settling here in 2002, he discovered a hidden gem of a property on the edge of Tangalle and went on to build the property of his dreams, infusing the island’s south coast charm with his unique personality. The result? Buckingham Place, a boutique hotel in Tangalle that’s bound to take your breath away.
Today, Nick calls Sri Lanka home. His continued enchantment with hidden corners of this island and the good-heartedness of its people have helped shape Buckingham Place and the soul with which it operates. Nick is living his dream in paradise and offering others a chance to experience it with him.
