My girlfriend and I stayed at the Elegant Hamlet Homestay for four days and had a great time. The bungalow is brand-new and clean. Anything you might need is provided (AC, warm water, high standard bathroom, coffee and tea and much more) and there is plenty of room for four people to stay.
The host Chamara and his family - who live next door to the bungalow - took great care of us. Freshly made breakfast was provided every morning – whatever we wished for they made it possible. Anything from Western Style toast and eggs to proper Sri Lankan food – you can get it all. A lot of the ingredients such as coconut milk or fruits are taken from the gardens and could not be any fresher. During the day, Chamara showed us around the area – temples, markets, local stores etc. – explaining the country and the culture to us. Everything was arranged for us and the service was just perfect. We had a truly Sri Lankan experience – away from the mass tourism and the overcrowded sights.
As Chamara is also a tour guide for Sri Lanka, he helped us to arrange the rest of our trip – which was tremendous. We were provided with the best insider tips one could wish for and that made our journey unforgettable.
Dear Chamara, thank you and your family so much for hosting us with all of your kindness, friendliness and happiness. We will definitely come back.
