Something special

Hello,

My hubby and me will be reaching Srilanka at 6 am on the 24th. Its his birthday and I would like to do something as special as possible for him.

We will be going to Pinnawala from the airport and I am aware that Pinnawala is more of a village so there is very little to do. Is there anything special anyone can recommend on the way from the airport to Pinnawala? Is there a recommended bakery where I could place an order for a cake? Or a particularly good restaurant for lunch? Is there a café next to the river where we could relax all day? Any ideas with the resources available here?

Hi.

In ambespussa there is perera & sons (P&S) -specialist for cakes and pinnawala itself has a couple of restaurants by the river for viewing elephants bathing!

Advance wishes for your husband!

Good luck

IMO, P&S is not great for special cakes. But they are affordable.

Assuming your next stop is Kandy, I'll wait for that to do something "special". But hey, watching elephant baths should make it a pretty unique birthday morning

Thank you both!

Its Anuradhapura next, then Polonaaruwa and only then Kandy..... I was thinking of linking up with one of the restaurants here and check if they could reserve their nicest table and request a cake to be made in advance so they could bring it out at the end of our meal perhaps. But I would need advice on which restaurant might be able to help me with this request

Try make a reservation at Ulagulla. They usually cater for in-house guests, but is one of the best restaurants in the country.
