Colombo. Sri Lanka Destinations | Sun, 16 Sep 2018 : Travel is food for the soul. It is through our travelling experiences that we learn something new about the world, and our place in it. Everyone wants to take a break from their monotonous, stressful lives and catch a few moments of peace, adventure and novelty. Travelling offers that and much more.
One of the topmost priorities for those planning a vacation is comfortable accommodation. In the day and age of the internet, browsing for hotels which match your needs and budget is rather child’s play. However it is only recently that travelers have negotiated with themselves to choose experience and uniqueness over the structure and commercial setup of a hotel. Travelers looking to experience the local flavor and culture are cozying up to the idea of choosing Holidays homes or Home stays.
Home stays are ideal for travelers who enjoy exploring remote, less travelled locales, away from the bustle and chaos of the city, yet staying close enough to places of interest. Hotels definitely cater to your demands and treat you like royalty, but do you really learn anything worthwhile?

In life, wealth can be calculated by the number of experiences, memories and friends you have earned. Hotels provide equal treatment to all their guests, from the food to the room service; they follow a strict rule book, one for all.
