Dear hotel staff or higher management of Resplendent Ceylon, With a sad heart I have to ask you whether messages like below (for this and another hotel of yours, I might also post it there) User: Anne H (TA Profile anneh5027) "Hi there, I would recommend Weligama over Mirissa as many resorts/hotels have been demolished due to recent events. However, Weligama is much safer and kid friendly to spend your holidays. I visited Sri Lanka just a few months back with my family and it was just amazing! During our stay one of the locations we visited was Weligama as we had heard many good reviews about the area. We opted to stay at this luxury beach resort called Cape Weligama where they warmly welcomed us in the true Sri Lankan way. We chose to stay at the Ocean Grand Villa which was overlooking the grand Indian Ocean with a large verandah. It was the perfect weather to take a walk along the golden costal of Weligama with the waves hitting your feet. This resort is perfect for a couple or even a family outing. You could check them out on: Hi there, If you are visiting Sri Lanka, Yala is a must go - to tourist destination to spot its exotic wildlife including elephants, leopards and polar bears. During our visit to Yala, we stayed at Wild Coast Tented Lodge run by Resplendent Ceylon hotels as we have got good recommendations on it. This is flawlessly located between the ocean and the jungle and is also very close to the wild animals! I can assure you it’s safe though. Their accommodations are luxury tented camps called ‘Cocoons’ & ‘Urchins’ which I think is a unique concept. While at our stay, the naturalist at the hotel took us around to educate us on the exotic animals that resided in the Yala National Park. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodated to all our needs. You could check them out on: Hope you found this useful!" are in any way linked to you. At least it is a fake tourist (she or he has posted this crappy selfpromotion numerous times over the last 1-2 years, every time with a different username and every time 3-4 Resplendent Ceylon properties). Or is it even an employee? Without a clear and strong distancing yourself from practices like these, which are against TA guidelines and constitute deceipt, I don't think any tourist should consider booking at Cape Weligama or another Resplendent Ceylon property. Tnx for your time, Erik - TA Destination Expert for Sri Lanka
