Just a short note to say very many thanks for organising yesterday for Kathy and I.
We really enjoyed our city tour and it was lovely to meet up with you after all this time swapping e mails with each other.
Your restaurant choice was perfect and we really enjoyed our meal and chatting with you.It was a wonderful start to our holiday.
Our boat trip from Negombo was amazing and we saw lots of birds. We thought Lords restaurant was go good we went for a second evening. So great reccomendation!
There was slight issue checking out because they had not included the cost of our boat trip. But all now is sorted.
Yathra was fabulous, two lovely bird walks before breakfast and a very interesting sunset cruise. We had one dinner on board and at Tharindu’s recommendation he took us to Amal Villa where we had a seafood dinner. Please special mention to Charm our butler he did everything to make our stay memorable.
The transfer to the Taj went well. Please pass on our thanks to Tharindu he has been great. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay in Bentota. The hotel facilities were very good and the staff were very welcoming. A number even thanking us for making the effort to visit Sri Lanka after the torrid time your tourism sector has faced over the past 2 years. We ate mainly at the Taj but had 2 dinners on your recommendation at Pier 88. A great place just on the banks of the Bentota River. This place is like paradise, didnt want our stay to finish.
Now we are safely ensconced here in The Lighthouse Hotel in Galle, I thought I would drop you a line to let you know how we are getting on. The transfer went well as arranged by your goodself to Galle. Dersika and her GM were there to greet us. Room 323 is as good as it was 2 year’s ago! We went down to the Fort yesterday for a look around and returned last night for dinner at A minute by Tuk Tuk. Another great recommendation!
Also we had great mornings birding on our boat trip on the Madu river. Again thanks for telling us about this trip.
Everything so far is perfect and your planning has worked out 100%!
Jan & Kathy
