Buckingham Place, Tangalle
a hotel to lose your cares
Nick certainly knows how to run a leisure hotel. Makes an effort to talk to all his guests. Well designed individual rooms. Restaurant great location for guests and the food whilst a little expensive is devine.

Sri Lankan Paradise
Great stay at Buckingham Place. Nick and his brilliant team couldn’t do more too male us feel at home - exceptional service. Food was great Lots of great personal small touches which set it apart from a chain hotel Beach was beautiful and remote. We didn’t leave the hotel apart from beach walks. Perfect for what we were looking for but don’t expect to stay here and be close to the action (a short tuk tuk drive if required). Would highly recommend and would stay here again

Truly amazing, fully relaxation
* Like: - Location: Situated between a lagoon and a quiet beautiful clean sandy beach with very few tourists. - Room: Super huge. Including a big bedroom with a full set of sofa and a desk. Large area window and door share the view of the lagoon in front of your room and bed. A super large bathroom with shower space, a Jacuzzi and a toilet. - Nick: The creator and owner of this lovely place. He often greets each guest during check-in, breakfast and check-out. To be honest, I’ve never seen an owner like him pay so much attention to make sure each guest is satisfied and happy every day. - Staff: Friendly and helpful. - Food: Truly delicious and amazing, including breakfast, lunch or dinner. - Environment: It’s a small villa with limited guest rooms but it feels like you stayed in a park rather a 5 star hotel. One Pony and four peacocks appears in this villa from time to time and make you feel you are one of the component of this nature garden. - Beach: Golden color sand, lovely sunshine, pleasant wave beat, few people nearby; all these make this beach so lovely and so beautiful. - Pool: Two pools for the customers. Both are clean and staffs are nearby. - Price: Absolutely reasonable comparing to what have been offered to you. * Dislike: - Access: Need to spend some time go through the winding narrow road to reach this hidden gem. * Summary: - This place is also the number one hotel among those 8 hotels that we stayed in this Sri Lanka trip.

Unique, boutique and welcoming
My wife and I stayed at Buckingham Place for 4 nights in Feb 2018. Our expectations were surpassed and then some. The hotel is situated in a quiet corner of Rekawa Beach with miles of pristine sands striped with the tracks of nesting turtles - perfect for long walks on the beach as the sun sets. Nick and his staff are welcoming and created an unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere in luxury surroundings. Beautiful artwork adorns the main areas and the huge rooms and the grounds are roamed by peacocks and a friendly(ish) rescue horse, Rocky-Ginger. The food was excellent with the menu changing daily. I can’t think of having better seared tuna anywhere else in Sri Lanka. As a guitarist, I loved the ability to be able to pick up and play the hotel guitar when I pleased (without disturbing other guests of course). We joined one movie night with popcorn under the stars which was a surreal and enjoyable experience. Buckingham Place helped us organise Safari and transfers to our next destination, all at a very fair price rather then the profiteering you get at some high end hotels. The hotel also focuses on sustainability, we didn’t see a single plastic bottle or needless waste for that matter. Well done to Nick and the team - we would have booked to stay longer if we had known :-) Tom & Justina
