We stayed at Palmyrah house in Dec 2013. Sold as a bird watching paradise but there was no guide and no maps or direction! It is the only location in Sri Lanka to see flamingos but these had left the lagoon 2 weeks before we booked (in Colombo) but we were not told. Nor were we told that another highlight, a boat trip to Adam's bridge had been cancelled some weeks before we left. The Colombo Agent (Little Adventures) had never visited this hotel.
No alcohol served and beer could be bought 5km away. Rooms not cleaned unless requested but we were not told! Room well furnished but no windows.
Food was good
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palmyrah House is the first of its kind on the island and offers travellers five very comfortable en suite and air conditioned guestrooms. The style is simple and welcoming and uses local resources and artisans where possible. Guests are encouraged to meet and join each other on the verandahs for meals where local specialties are the pride of the house. A separate Games pavilion is the perfect place for an evening game of pool, carom and family board games or to catch up with the latest sports results or DVD. ... more less
