There was a lovely pool and I was right on the beach.
The people of Sri Lanka are some of the nicest in the world. I made a reservation at the seafood restaurant (they bring in the catches of the day and you choose what you want, they weight it, you choose how you want it prepared and then you eat!). They set me up with a beach view restaurant and treated me like a million dollars: the chef even came out and chatted with me for a bit.
I had a delicious jumbo prawn in a butter garlic sauce.
I went into 'town' one day and walked around. I almost caused an accident because a driver was staring and not paying attention to the road. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Some guy even tried to holler, he was sad when I didn't give him my number, 'you don't like black?'. Ummm, sir, I am black too.
