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”.
