        Perfection - a hotel with a difference ”

        This place is so much more than a hotel - we had such an amazing couple of days here that we ended up extending our stay by one night as we couldn’t bear to leave! It has a cosy and personal feel whilst retaining a sense of luxury. The pool area & view onto the beach is breathtaking, the restaurant excellent and the personal welcome from Nick & his staff unforgettable - I’m already dreaming about when we could return!

        Outstanding Gem....”

        Possibly the best resort hotel we have ever visited....from he first moment until we said our "au revoir"....because we will, without doubt, be coming back again.....this was the real deal....vision superbly thought through, planned and delivered.....superb staff, wonderful location....brilliant accommodation.....attention to detail 100%......owner's presence (literally) and approach so wonderful to see.....adding to the overall experience..... The marvellous unspoilt beach and turtle nesting just adds to the overall experience ....pricing just right to catch exactly who is required to make this really special....but not exclsuive....as I said this has been well thought through..... So many extras that I haven't even mentioned....but there needs to be some surprises! Your only mistake would be to look elsewhere.....and I've never said that before....see you there!

        Buckingham Place Hotel is in a stunning location on Rewaka Beach in Southern Sri Lanka. Nick Buckingham is your owner/host and the friendliest hotel owner we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. The rooms are spacious and clean, the restaurant serves a delicious new menu each day, the infinity pool is amazing and the beach is perfect to stroll along and watch the waves. All the staff were kind and helpful and we really wished we could have stayed longer. An incredible place!

        Lovely stay in Sri Lanka”

        My family and I had a wonderful stay at Nick Buckingham's lovely boutique hotel. The hospitality was outstanding and personal, the staff friendly and vey helpful. Our preference is to stay in smaller hotels in general as we prefer the personal connection, but this can sometimes be at the cost of variety or quality. This is not the case as Buckingham Place where the rooms had everything we needed (a very nice touch was water brought fresh every day to save on plastic bottles) including a view, the pool was spectacular, the food varied and delicious to the point that we had all our meals there for a full week, and there were plenty of relaxing places to sit and read, play games and relax in the sun. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back, as apparently many guest do. Thank you for a lovely holiday. Ward family

        A place to unwind and just be... with a personal touch”

        Having spent 3 weeks travelling around Sri Lanka, we wanted somewhere on the coast to relax and indulge ourselves before heading home. Buckingham Place gave us just that. A beautifully tranquil location by an unspoilt beach where turtles lay their eggs and return to the ocean. Set in grounds where wild peacocks roam and a myriad of birds pass through. Nick, the owner, clearly cares 100% about his guests and their holiday experience. We wish him well, he deserves every success.

        Great few days at Buckingham Place!”

        The rooms are fabulous, really big and tasteful decor. The resort is peaceful and perfect for just chilling out. The service is impeccable and the staff are really nice. The swimming pool is quite warm which makes it difficult to sit out at and while the nearest beach is 100m away you can't swim there so have to take a 15-20 minute tuk tuk ride to a beach you can swim at and cool off. The food in the restaurant is excellent but sometimes limited for dinner if you don't like shellfish although the kitchen is very flexible.the owner nick is very helpful pleasant and friendly. We would highly recommend a stay at Buckingham place!

        All of the many compliments are fully justified. Nick has created something unique and everything could not have been better: room, food, staff, service and overall ambience. He should be very proud of his achievements and hopefully we will have the chance to revisit the Place before too long.
