I spent 14 days at the Dalmanuta garden, and was very well taken care of. From the first enthusiastic mail to my final drop off at Galle. The yoga with Chamal was a good way to start the day. Not too advanced, which suited me fine. The treatments were good. I stayed full board and received approx. 2 hours of... More
