Bedroom Or Suite?

16 bedrooms & suites as follows, offering 7 floor layouts overall…

  • 7 BEDROOMS ARE DETACHED AND DIFFER IN SIZE
  • 1 SUITE IS DETACHED
  • 4 ADJOINING SUITES ARE LINKED BY BALCONIES AND VERANDAHS, TWO UPSTAIRS TWO BELOW
  • 4 HIDEAWAY SUITES ARE PAIRED AND FEATURE INDIVIDUAL GARDENS

All accommodation is furnished in a timeless style and equipped similarly, but all have different names and personalities, which are personal to Nick Buckingham as they relate to his coming to understand Sri Lanka and its people. By all means ask him what inspired him, and about his challenges during the construction period, it’s quite a story.

First up is ‘The Tree House’ which was built around an existing coconut tree and meant to be Nicks own. Early site visitors persuaded him to complete it for guests and ever since, it has been the most sought after and talked about suite.

Differentials between bedrooms and suites are fairly opaque to be honest, discreet at best. Levels of equipment and comfort are identical, so it’s really about some extra space, or a slightly more special view or personality perhaps that sets them apart. To this day I don’t have a favourite, I still love them all! | NICK
