    I stayed here many years ago, in the 90s. The owner might remember me as a guest who donated a bunch of Dhamma books to him. Is the same owner still in charge here?

    Has anyone used Blue Hav Travels for a tour? We are looking to book a car and driver for a week in Sri Lanka and would like to know of other people's experiences. Did you pay at the start of the journey? They are picking up at the airport - has anyone else done this and if so, was it ok?

    You can also asked for a packed breakfast (ask the night before) if you need to leave really early. We had a 5 am bus trip one morning and they prepared us breakfast to take on the road...an egg sandwich and some fruit!
