Hi, we are staying at the Centara Ceysands, so just across from Aluthgama..

Thanks !!

Hi there,

1] Yes any 'saloon' which not specificly says ladies-only will do.

2] Aluthgama will have limited choice of fabric, but basically the men's clothing shops should have a tailor on call too.

3] Nope, only factory shoes and repairing, no made-to-order AFIK.

Sorry no names, stuck to Bentota last time instead of my usual crossing the river bridge.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Sugi has a small boutique 50m from the gates of the Eden Resort. I've bought many clothes from her. Quality & prices are good. She can even make bespoke garments for you.
