“Nuwara Eliya”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

I went with selectsrilanka as one of a party of 9 for a week-end in Nuwara Eliya. On the way we visited the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, a wonderful experience, and made our way into the hill country where it gradually became cooler.resulting in some of our Sri Lankan friends wrapping themselves in blankets when we arrived at the house which had been hired. On the road up we stopped at a tea factory and sampled both tea and chocolate cake. There were many vegetable stalls at the roadside where we bought lovely fresh produce which was turned into a wonderful meal on arrival. Victoria Park in Nuwara Eliya is very pretty and could have been in Western Europe. On the return journey we stopped by a river and cooked a very nice meal. Altogether the trip is to be recommended both for the beauty of the countryside and the quality of service.

“Great Holiday”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

I loved the trips i did which were away from everything and amoungst the palmtrees etc. The waterfall trip which is not that far away from where the hotel was is lovely, its off the beaten track and quiet. The waterfalls were lovely and the walk to them was beautiful amoungst the greenery and rubber trees. You can see the hairy lychees growing and tea also. Just beautiful.
The turtle farm was good and they work hard to preserve them, buying the turtle eggs that people find and incubating them in the farm in sand beds. I held a 2 day old turtle, they are so sweet.
The spice garden was interesting, doesnt take long but amazing seeing the tree that cinnamon comes from and ginger growing. I got a massage there also which is free but you are encouraged to tip the trainee who does it. (He has been learning for three years).
The river boat trip was enjoyable if you havent seen water monitors before or crocadiles, i have been to Kenya so was spoilt with what i saw on Safari there. I had a boat and guide to myself which was lovely.
Shri Lanka is a lovely place to go, the people are lovely and very friendly. The driving is mad but if your not behind the wheel you can close your eyes. Its funny driving along the road and see cows just walking down the middle of a really busy road, alone, no owner, crazy.
A very enjoyable holiday and would recommend it.
