Savio Dsouza Trip to lanka and Maladives on 17th Dec 2014
It was my third trip with Nik n Ami Travels and as usual it was one to remember. My wife and I had taken a 3/3 nights package to Maldives/ Sri Lanka. At Maldives, we opted to stay at Sun Island, of which 2 nights were at a beach bungalow and 1 at the water bungalow. The hotel, built on an island had many activities in general, but we mostly chose to admire the beautiful scenic views of the white sandy beaches and the turquoise blue crystal clear waters (which one rarely finds in India). There were many good restaurants to eat out and shops for souvenirs too in and around the place.
What took us to surprise though was the beauty and vibrancy that the tiny island of Sri Lanka offered. We had a very helpful local tour guide named Daya who picked us up from the airport to our hotel, Hotel Ramada. The following day being a Sunday, we opted to go on a road trip to visit the seaside coastal towns of Galle and Bentota. While both had their charm, we were really impressed with Galle seeing the blending of the Dutch and Portuguese cultures and even the old heritage sites like the fort, the lighthouse, a 1755 built Dutch church, etc. The remainder of the time we opted to explore Colombo city, basically eat and shop ;) .
Overall both the hotels we stayed at had quality and Amit's service right from the pick up till we checked out of Ramada was classy and cannot be matched.
