Since I'm about to pack for my next asian adventure I decided to throw in a post about my 2 favorite hotels in Sri Lanka.
Casa Colombo in the capital - West Coast
Hands down the most excited I've ever been about a hotel was when I convinced my boyfriend we absolutely must stay at Casa Colombo. There are only 12 suites and I have never felt this private in a hotel before. I have a thing for these colonial buildings (though filled with hi-tech accessories and modern bathrooms). This one was renovated exactly to my taste and I could totally imagine myself spending weeks in there… with my own butler who was more like a PA. Sigh.
Having the luxury of a double vanity is a must for me and my boyfriend in order not to kill each other
Hastens beds are the kind of treat I very much appreciate.
I fell in love with this phone so much that I got one for my birthday. You could say Casa Colombo brings out the playful you...
The dining area features these super cool yogis that levitate above you while you indulge in your breakfast.
Maalu Maalu Resort&Spa in Pasikuda Bay - East Coast
My second option for Sri Lanka is the free-spirited Maalu Maalu resort. It was built away from pretty much everything so it is the place to go if you enjoy running along the beach with only the sea next to you and the sky above you. I, as the representative of a hard-core city girl, loved being sort of trapped in a wooden chalet for a couple of days. Our daily activities didn't vary too much but swimming, running, eating delicious food and catching up on sleep seemed more than enough to get me ready for another hike, safari adventure or just crazy busy city life. My favorite part though was the rain shower. There is nothing like taking a shower when you can literally feel the monsoon rain.
I always liked having the beach close to the pool. Or the pool to the beach?
