We have spent 2 nights in this beautiful and peaceful place and it was hard to leave it. The Manor is amazing, very vibrant and authentic, and the owners are incredibly nice and helpful, they made us feel home. The entire place calls for calm and harmony.
It is not easy to find, like every piece of Paradise :), but the drivers are used to call the owners and we have always found our way back home! The rooms are very spacious with a lot of charm, not luxury though but comfortable enough to have a great stay. And the food is fantastic! The WiFi was random but, hey, this is Sri Lanka ;)
I can only recommend this place and I will certainly go back if I have the occasion!
