“Missing Element - "Hospitality"”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

It's funny I'm writing this review, because I personally have no visited this so called "boutique resort" yet.
Two of my friends from UK were travelling to Kandy, and could not find this hotel, so i went online and managed to find a contact number for this resort. I called [-] and a gentleman by the name of Gordon answered. I asked him for directions to the hotel, and he asks me if i had made a reservation (didn't answer to the point).
then i explained to him about my friend's trying to find the resort. he said he was running late for a meeting, and could not help me...i asked if i can have his mobile number, or anyone else's number so they could help me with directions, and this guy slams the phone on me. I don't know how great this hotel might be, but clearly my first point of contact with it, was a TOTAL PUT OFF!!!! hospitality is what this industry is all about. it's sad that they cannot be courteous.
