Sri Lanka ended upu being a short detour on our honeymoon to the Maldives. I had an unfortunate passport issue and had to visit the US Embassy in Sri Lanka for resolution before continuing on our trip. The US embassy highly recommended Tintagel for our two night stay in Sri Lanka. We spoke to the hotel manager directly that afternoon, and he assured us they'd help get our honeymoon back on track with our stay that very evening. And that they did! We were exhausted from the long flight and immigration issues, but were greeted with a huge welcome from the staff. They treated us like royalty, and had a beautiful suite ready including roses and a very nice card for our honeymoon. The Northwest suite was beautiful -- very elegant and tastefully decorated, complete with a patio and our own private plunge pool. Quite the hidden gem in Colombo! We ate dinner on their patio restaurant that night, and were delighted to discover the food at Tintagel was equally excellent to the decor. The next day, the hotel manager arranged a driver to take us around the city to some key locations, a lovely lunch on the beach, and then down south to the sea turtle hachery. Our driver, Sherman, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful (including taking us on a second detour to the embassy to finalize my new passport). So all in all, what could have been a painful trip to Sri Lanka to deal with passports turned out to be a delightful trip in and of itself thanks to the Tintagel hotel. We would highly recommend this beautiful property to any of our friends traveling to Colombo. Thank you for helping get our honeymoon back on track!
