I just got back from my much awaited honeymoon at Aditya. Despite my high expectations from reading its reviews on Tripadvisor, this boutique resort outshone itself in every single area.
First off, I had casually mentioned in an email to the hotel that I was staying at the hotel for my honeymoon. Sure enough, once we checked into our room, a delicious chocolate cake awaited us with the words "Congratulations" written on it. The hotel room was large and elegantly designed and it's clear that plenty of thought has gone into its architecture and interior design. The outdoor bathrooms and plunge pools are exposed to a breathtaking panorama of palm trees and tropical shrubbery filled with birds.
The food here was fantastic. We had a candlelight dinner in front of the swimming pool one evening and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the drinks and food. The breakfasts were sumptuous with freshly baked bread, home-made jams, king coconut water and delicious tropical fruit. For those with ethnic tastebuds, the Sri Lankan food here is just as enjoyable as eating at a local Sri Lankan restaurant.
The hotel staff takes great pride in their property and are always cleaning up or refurnishing the property throughout the day. Their service is top notch and they were always around to serve us without being intrusive. On one occasion where I requested a larger size of rubber slippers and even though they didn't have my size at the hotel, they purchased a new pair from the neighboring town before evening.
The hotel spa offers great massages and my wife and I felt totally pampered by their service. The pool was another wonderful place to relax in the evenings after a day of sightseeing.
The Dutch town Galle is about 20-30 minutes away from this hotel and definitely worth a visit. We visited the fort, dutch church and numerous gem stores in the area.
I've staying in many hotels around the world and I have to admit that when it comes quality of accommodation and service, Aditya is currently 'numero uno' in my books. I felt fully relaxed during our stay at this spectacular honeymoon destination and I look forward to going back here again.
