Imagine waking up on a lovely sunny morning, stepping out onto your private balcony and surveying the mini-jungle and pond below with birdsong, peacocks crying and the glimpse of a monkey or two. Then you go down to the open-air eating area for a delicious breakfast (many choices available). This in part describes our experience of the beautiful Dunes Hotel. The owners, Gayan and Jenny, and Roshan their elegant helper, were all so friendly and accommodating, helping us in so many ways, including packing us a lunch for our long train ride to Kandy. The location is central yet just off the main road so really quiet. A/C in the rooms and better reading lights would make it perfect. Highly recommended.
