          Hi, We are trying to book a shuttle through this hotel but we cannot get in contact with them. The phone number on Expedia is incorrect and we cannot find an email address. We may have to cancel our booking if we cannot get a hold of them.

          Hi, I am Sandra from Germany and have stayed in this hotel around 20 years ago with some friends. Is the hotel still locally owned? Unfortunately I forgot the name of that very nice guy and his sister. I am planning to revisit Unawatuna May 2017 once again. Every answer will be very much appreciated. Thanks a lot.
