I stayed there for 6 more nights after my wife went ahead of me to Maldives. The owners are very accommodating. The house is very nice, with natural ventilation. It also happened that a movie scene was shot in the house the whole day of April 8. I had the oppurtunity to see Sri Lankan celebrity. Nice place, highly recommended.

I am having amazing time in Palm Nest in Sri Lanka. I definately recomend this place to others. The couple here is so helpful, friendly and lovely. They always welcome you and take care of people with smile. :) The place is very clean, tidy and nice. Also, Anomi's homecook curry is excellent. I am going to miss them.
