Most amazing hotel, elegance from the minute you drive up to the gates! In the evening it is really romantic when they light the whole place up for you with fairy lights. Everyone speaks perfect English and can't do enough for you.The rooms are huge and really keep you in touch with nature yet are totally clean with comfy beds....

Buckingham Place, Rekawa, Sri Lanka We finally found what we had been looking for: A place, where we could enjoy total relaxation under the warm sun at a time when it’s cold and dark in Europe. A place, that was not yet another anonymous luxury hotel with a lot of modern conveniences, but without soul. At our stay at Buckingham...

Great location, wonderfully quiet, nice empty beach, attentive staff. Honeymoon suite well worth it for the wildlife views and the palm tree growing through the roof! Easy to arrange transport, and the best food we had in Sri Lanka. We'll be back!

Thank you, all of you… Each Christmas/New Year season brings us too few hours with too much to squeeze in; so much so it’s all we can do sometimes to feed and look after everyone properly before waving them off with fond memories and a great sun tan!

We had been so looking forward to staying here based on the reviews of others and this lovely place delivered everything expected, plus some. We knew as we drove through local villages and rice paddies (and saw signs about wild peacocks) that this would be just what we were looking for. We didn't realise the small resort had been extended...

There should be a different type of rating scale for a hotel experience of this caliber. Five stars doesn't quite explain how special Buckingham Place is. The service is top notch and perfectly balanced. The staff seem genuinely happy to be working there, and it shows in all of their interactions. All of your needs are constantly met by the...

Buckingham place is every bit as special as the other reviews here suggest: the service is exemplary without ever feeling forced or too formal, and the idyllic setting, well designed rooms and beautiful gardens make sure you never want to leave.

We have just returned from a repeat visit to Buckingham Place. We were lucky enough to be the first returning couple to experience the new facilities and - wow! The new restaurant is spectacular. Very stylish with clean lines and bright decor. We loved the artworks - especially the proud birds - so much so that we returned home with...
