If anyone has any info on this resort I would love to hear from you! My fiance and I are off there for our honeymoon next August, have read some superb reviews about Sri Lanka in general but if anyone has any reviews on this particular resort that would be fab!
Thanks for your comments. We booked our honeymoon thru a travel counsellor, I believe the tour operator is First Choice.
Altho we have been told that Marawila is fine after the Tsunami disater (it's on the west of the island), we are still deciding whether we should go or not
If you are not sure you should go because you might feel a bit guilty about living a life of luxury so soon after the disaster I would say go. The people of Sri Lanka are very friendly and they all know how important tourism is to the economy. I think you would help a lot by visiting, spending money there and restoring confidence. I'm thinking about going back towards the end of the year. firstly because it's a lovely place to holiday but I would also like to do my bit to help the county and a visit would help a lot more than the donation.
Having said that of course it's not my money and it is your honeymoon. Congratulations on your wedding. Are you getting married over there?
And it was Mercury Direct I wish I had travelled with not Virgin.
We're marrying in the UK and then flying to Sri Lanka 3 days after. My fiance adopted me an Elephant thru Born Free for my birthday, she's at the Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home, I would really still love to go to meet her!
You hit the nail on the head there regarding my concerns, but you are quite right, they really on Tourism so we should keep it up.
