The Paradise Nursing Home

We are staying at the Club Dolphin Hotel, where everything is included in the package...This includes drinks and food.
The first day or so resmbled a feeding frenzy, but self discipline is slowly kicking in.


Very slowly...


The staff here are very chatty and friendly. One of the cleaning men gave me this bouquet.


The buffet restaurant is a very dangerous place to be.
Just look at the patisserie.




These little chaps are lychee tarts. I cant remember the names of all the others but they were things like "eat me and get really fat with all the cream and sugar'














The standard of the food is mainly excellent, with authentic curries on offer along with Western food. Being a buffet, it means you can select a bit of everything...and oh dear, I do.
Just as well the standard is high. Today they had an inspection by the authorities (she is the lady in the hair net)




It is a good place to relax but , perhaps because everything is available on site, there is a kind of institutionalised feel to it. Like a posh Butlins...or nursing home...
I expect we will be ready to leave on Wednesday to go South to the tsunami zone.
Meanwhile, if we want anything, we can go to Tesco's for a bit of a change. It's next door...

Lovely post - I am ALMOST glad not be there and tempted by all those unnecessary calories.

But that bouquet buckled my ridiculous resolution!

Looks fantastic (and filling) - how nice of you to post some photos, I was wondering what it as like.

No! Not Tesco!
even in paradise...
They'll be installing a MacDonalds in the Louvre next

That Tesco sign is really mystifying - is it just that someone got hold of it and thought it added a bit of western cachet?

It looks really heavenly, anyway. Kind of weird being offered as much of everything delicious and bad for you as you can eat available on demand, like a dream. What are the breakfasts like? The lychee tarts look a bit rude to me, but I always think that about lychees...

Better stop there I think, before I embarrass myself.

Wow, Sri Lanka! How did you choose it? I just get preoccupied for a few weeks, and there you are in Sri Lanka already. I see you are having a great time, and I hope it continues as it began. I'm eager to learn about your next adventure.
