Gorgeous home. There is incredible attention to detail from the breakfast options (which were vast and all delicious) to the layout of the rooms and the bathrooms. Spotless, no bugs or mosquitoes in sight as she has the place fumigated once a month which was a welcome change from the rest of Sri Lanka! The bed was hugely comfortable and I had the best nights sleep of my trip here! One thing to be aware of which is neither positive or negative, just something I didn't realise, is the fact that there are multiple rooms spread over two floors so the photograph of the room on here may not be the one you get - this doesn't matter at all as they're very large, comfortable and spotless rooms so zero to complain about! Thank you to Chitra for your hospitality and for recommending things to see and do in the city :)

It was a pleasure to stay in this luxury apartment, the room was amazing and the view was mind blowing, the location is also perfect! Out host was very welcoming and charming, with a small complimentary breakfast at our last night, which was a nice touch, it feels more like hotel stay, but still in an apartment - if a price is fine for You definitely go for it! Worth it :)
