We spent 3 days in this fantastic small hotel (top ten in the world, appearantly) with views over the lagoon to one side and the Indian ocean to the other. There is a personal touch and feeling that the staff is one big family headed by Nick, the owner and creator of this little paradise. As a family with children...

Unfortunately we did not stay in the hotel, but we were blessed to enjoy two dinners in the restaurant. To be honest, I almost have no words for the incredible atmosphere, the delicious food, the amazing hospitality. If you want to experience a very special evening with the absolute best dinner we had during our Sri Lanka trip, than you...

It was refreshingly different to stay here. The staff were friendly the owner lives on site, attending to all the small details and the location itself is spectacular. For a quiet, relaxed holiday, Buckingham Place is your best bet.

Buckingham Place offered one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. The location is superb in amidst of the nature; you will see lots of birds, monkeys and peacocks. The beach is amazingly beautiful and you most probably see only couple of other people there. The rooms are stylish, spacious and are furnished in a minimalist way. And...

Just enjoyed a 4 night stay at this amazing place. There are so many positive reviews on here already that there is little to be said than to agree. The hotel is so good because Nick Buckingham, the owner and creator wants every guest to have a great time. Prasanna, his travel manager, very efficiently arranged transport from our previous...

I don't quite know where to start. We had a wonderful stay at Buckingham place, and couldn't fault it at all. We were there for 3 days as part of our honeymoon, and were made to feel very special. Our room was fantastic, and we were in one of the simpler rooms, so the other ones must be outstanding. Very...

Thank you for a wonderful review and in particular, for reinforcing what many others have written about the hotel – though into our 7th year, I still can’t quite believe how nice our guests are towards us! I’m especially happy to see further approval of our new facilities and massage team, as you know, the restaurant and pool opened only...
