Win­dow Seat

WE’VE all ex­pe­ri­enced the thrill of a drunken im­pulse buy while on hol­i­days - but it’s usu­ally a hand­bag or jew­ellery.

A new­ly­wed Bri­tish cou­ple have def­i­nitely taken it up a notch, pur­chas­ing the Sri Lankan ho­tel they were stay­ing in on their hon­ey­moon last Dec.

The Lon­don cou­ple were so­cial­is­ing with staff at the beach-front B&B in Tan­galle, and af­ter 12 glasses of rum found the lease was al­most up.

For about US$1,000 a month, the woman said “we thought it would be a bril­liant idea to buy it be­cause we were so drunk”.

So far so good - they have re­named the seven-room ho­tel as the “Lucky Beach Tan­galle” and are re­port­edly see­ing a “steady flow of cus­tomers”.
