I was only supposed to stay here for three or four days but I loved it so much I ended up staying for about 10 nights. I was unwell when I arrived at Norlanka (something I had eaten at a different place) and when Anoma found out she was so sweet she gave me a local tonic to try to help get me better. I couldn't have asked for nicer hosts, Helge and Anoma are both so considerate and so easy going.
Their hotel is so relaxing and so comfortable and quiet - really secluded despite being literally only a 30 second walk to the most amazing beach ever. The food in the hotel was superb - the best dahl I have ever had and the best curries ever. The staff were all incredibly sweet and helpful. We went to Yala with their driver Roshan and he was a real gem - he took us on a bit of a culinary adventure afterwards feeding us proper curd and honey from his favourite supplier as well as plying us with loads of mini watermelon (the tastiest I have ever had). He was fantastic in Yala as well - spotted leopards for us and went way above and beyond the call of duty.
I am already planning my next trip and I would recommend Norlanka without hesitation. Helge and Anoma have created an amazing spot and you would be losing out if you didn't stay there!
