My partner and I stayed at Wunderbar for 8 nights in October 2013. Coming from Qatar we were excited to breathe fresh air and see lots of greenery but yet we wanted the sea and beach, we were not disappointed.
When we arrived in Sri Lanka we were greeted at the airport with our personal driver in a very comfortable car as the drive to Bentota is around 2 hours (with no traffic). The drive was pleasant and before no time we were there, when we pulled up to the hotel at 6.30am we were greeted like old friends, Chan (the owner) and his team had already started their working day we could smell breakfast being served.
We were shown to our room and felt at home immediately, nice big bathroom, comfortable bed and plenty of space , the balcony was great with a great view, I felt like I was in a treehouse!!!
After a quick nap we went to the restaurant for breakfast, I was blown away, the view in the restaurant was breathtaking!! palm trees, sand and sea!!! what more could you want!! Then the food came, a plate of the freshest fruit I had ever tasted, a pot a tea and coffee with a fruit juice that you could tell had just been squeezed, then eggs done to your liking, bacon, sausage, toast, butter and jam. It was safe to say we were set for the day!!
We had decided before we got to Sri Lanka that we wanted to go to the elephant sanctuary and go deep sea fishing one day apart from that we just wanted to chill, we asked to speak to someone who could take us on the trips, this is were we met Daggy, he was extremely helpful telling how early we would have to get up, how long the trips would take and what we would be able to see, he had a whole book of trips and we were very tempted to do them all but giving the amount of time we were staying we decided against it and stuck to the elephants and the fishing. both trips were perfect. accompanied by daggy who catered for everything. we never had to pay for anything until the day we were leaving Sri Lanka. we were well and truly spoilt.
all in all, Wunderbar was exactly what you need when on a relaxing holiday. great hotel, great service, great location. perfection.
if your looking to chill out and not spend a lot of money, I insist on Wunderbar. you will not be disappointed.
