Buckingham Place is an appealing boutique hotel on a five-acre estate between the deserted beaches of Rekawa, where marine turtles come ashore to nest, and the tranquil Rekawa Lagoon. Rekawa is in a little-explored part of the south, east of the coastal town of Tangalle. The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take about 3.5 hours, or avoid road travel and take a half hour sea plane from Colombo to Dickwella, which is just a 30 minute drive from the hotel.
