Buckingham Place



Owner Nick Buckingham has done what many of us dream of, but are too afraid to do.  Change direction.  Such was his love of Sri Lanka he adopted it as his country in 2002 and hasn't looked back since.   Located in southern Sri Lanka his boutique hotel Buckingham Place puts the local village of Rekawa firmly on the ‘must visit’ list for those who may not be staying at Buckingham Place but just passing through or visiting the area.  Off the beaten track in a sleepy, unknown place, Nick has created an oasis where guests can kick off their shoes and forget the rest of the world.


All activities at Buckingham Place can be arranged within a day or two so don't worry about pre-booking.  There are many on offer including visits to Heritage sites, whale watching, visiting an elephant sanctuary, exploring tea estates and day safaris at the National Parks.   Alternatively you can explore the surrounding area by canoe and bicycle or take a stroll or an early morning jog along the beach. There is currently a plunge pool for guests to use whilst the larger pool is being built, but being so close to such a beautiful beach you will find yourself spending a lot of time by the sea, enjoying the sea breeze.


The open-air restaurant at this gem is an absolute treat.  Serving Sri Lankan and international/fusion dishes, foodies, including vegetarians, will delight at the flavours and freshness of the mouth-watering menu. A new, sea-facing restaurant is due to open in 2011.
