It was a short stay for me in Sri Lanka end of March 2017 and I was looking for a place for accommodation during this stay. It is not an easy endeavour to find a suitable place though we are familiar with Sri Lankan conditions. And then we found this new haven, the Anarva. In fact, it was my wife who found it and needless to say that she has a good eye for good places, and this time she proved more successful than ever!
When I arrived at this band new hotel right in the heart of the busy town of Mount Lavina, a populous Colombo suburb, I was a little bit apprehensive. However, I was proved wrong! Anarva Siddhalepa is one of the best experiences I had in holiday accommodation in my whole life.
I was greeted at the lobby by a group of staff with welcoming smiles, pleasant gestures and supportive hands and I started feeling at home straight away. Although the hotel was in the middle of a busy town, it was very quiet and peaceful inside. The room is just the right size for my needs and had all required amenities to make my stay very pleasant and comfortable. All services were functioning smoothly notwithstanding certain parts of the hotel were still under construction. There was free wifi, which is almost an essential part of life of the technologically overwhelmed world today! The food was great though the menu choice was limited due to number of guests and under the circumstances it was a great food experience with the culinary features of Sri Lanka.
The staff was always there to help in everything and I never felt for one moment that I was away from home. For me, it was a home away from home!
Keep up the good work and I am confident that Anarva Siddhalepa would become a memorable holiday experience for tourists and anyone who visits Sri Lanka in time to come.
