Shereen – The best part for me was the stunning view of the ocean from the room. I loved just how vast and spacious everything was and how the resort is literally on the beach. The adult only pool and the spa was where I spent most of my time.
Trishala – Being such a Safari Baby, I was most excited to visit Yala National Park and experice the River Boat Safari at the Walawe River, both of which did not disappoint. Coming back to a lavish breakfast and a relaxing massage at the spa were of course the icing on the cake!
