Hi all - have been reading your reviews and Q&A's... some very helpful stuff in there :)
I have booked a Deluxe Beach Villa with Jacuzzi on the a la carte AI... to make sure of that extra luxury needed for a Honeymoon. But I was wondering if there is more I can do... (bearing in mind I am now skint until 2013).
I have a couple of questions that you may be able to help me with...
Which, if any are the best DBVJ's to chose? specific numbers or ranges would be appreciated - I have heard some are open to the path while others are hidden under vegetation... We would like to tan on our deck - but also like a little privacy too ;)
What restaurant should I book in advance for our first night? Want to get a feel for the island - the romantic meals can wait a day or two :)
From a DBVJ - can you take your lounges onto the beach? have been reading mixed reports on this topic...
Is there somewhere on the island I can buy a lilo or something similar? - The Mrs has a thing for them and we are coming in by sea plane so the luggage restrictions mean we can't bring one from the UK...
Any island restaurants, wildlife(bugs), etiquette, excursions or packing do's and don'ts - or any Kuramathi advice in general to help me ensure a smooth, 'once-in-a-lifetime' trip?
Thanks in advance! we leave this Saturday with Sri Lanka Airlines from Heathrow... any tips on getting an upgrade?
