Top 10 things that makes a luxury hotel luxurious! 

We love luxury hotels. Whether we are traveling as a couple or a family we always look for somewhere luxurious to stay. But what makes a hotel luxurious?

Wandermust Daddy and I have very different opinions about what makes a luxurious hotel. For him it’s all about the shower.  For me it’s all about the bath. But we both agree that open bathrooms with a view are the bees knees!

Buckingham Place – Best Hotel Ever!

I am going to start with a disclaimer – that despite the sheer number of superlatives I am about to use in this review, I promise I have no affliation and was not paid or given products to do this review. I genuinely feel this strongly about this hotel.

Buckingham Place on the South Coast of Sri Lanka, is literally the best place I have ever stayed at. So much so I am reticent to tell others about it. However unfortunately for us babies aren’t allowed so we won’t be going back for a while. Buckingham place is a couple of hours down the new highway, you reached a small village called Rekawa. As the main road ends, your taxi takes you down a dirt road, wide enough for only one car, that snakes around padi fielda before eventually arriving at the gates to Buckingham Place and entering paradise.

The name is full of whimsy as is the owner, Nick, who doesn’t want stuffy guests but guests that will see the beauty and fun of life in Sri Lanka. He can be often found in the dining room, talking happily to guests with stories from his life both before and after he moved to Sri Lanka.
