One thought on “Bookings

  1. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach front paradise 2 hours south of Colombo. We received a magnificent welcome from Ranjit the co-owner and manager and at whose house, 5 minutes’ walk down the beach we ate breakfast and dinner cooked every day by his lovely wife, Sujeeva. This was a real treat, as we only ate delicious local dishes in the warm atmosphere of his family home and which made our lunches at the local beach restaurants disappointing by comparison.
    Staying in the spacious and comfortable upstairs apartment, we enjoyed the place to ourselves – drinking fresh coconut juice on our balcony, watching the local fishing boats land on the beach directly in front of us and going for a dip in the sea when it all got too hot.
    Ranjit, who is a well-respected member of the community was a constant source of information on tap, helped organize some brilliant day trips and would have been an excellent guide on longer trips if we have had the time. His standing in the community, also I think reduced any over-zealous attention from some of the beach boys who worked some of the bigger hotels further down the beach. He is also an accomplished sculptor of wood and batique maker – his beach front shop attached to his house is well worth a visit.
    The real charm then of the Marigold Beach House despite the relative proximity of some of the bigger hotels either side, is that it feels part of the village. This authenticity coupled with the warm hospitality of Ranjit and his family; make a stay at Marigold an affordable slice of paradise. We look forward to our next break.
