This was our eighth visit to Sri Lanka but the first to Buckingham Place - it won't be our last! We arrived after a seven and a...

I've been stalking the Buckingham Place website and tripadvisor reviews for close to 1 and 1/2 years so there was no surprise when I booked it for my honeymoon and was I impressed.

As a guest foreigner in Sri Lanka, it is especially pleasing for me personally, whenever we make a good, lasting impression on our Sri Lankan guests who, are equally welcome at this hotel. Thank you for choosing Buckingham Place for your honeymoon and, for telling the world on Trip Advisor. I’m flattered and delighted too, that we lived up to...

We were very lucky to have stayed at Buckingham Place for 6 nights. We arrived mid morning, well in advance of the check-in time but were shown immediately to our room. We were greeted by several smiling faces, given a garland of flowers, a cold flannel and a cold juice drink, which were very much welcomed after our long drive....

Buckingham Place is a slice of perfection on the south coast of Sri Lanka. The grounds are superbly manicured, the rooms are stunningly designed and the food, wow....the food.

Arriving in the dark and oblivious to my surroundings, the welcoming staff and fireflies dancing about gave me a sense that I would awake to something quite special the next day. The morning revealed beautiful lush surroundings, colourful birds, peacocks prancing about, and fluffy grey monkeys with bushy black eyebrows, which evoked a feeling of being in a Henri Rousseau...

This place is a gem. Especially after you arrive from the moutains. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the service is flawless. Its a peacful athmosphere all day long. I have enjoyed the food too - a small menu always freshly prepared. You can see the turtles of Rakawa beach which is just by the hotel too.
