New Food Frontiers in Sri Lanka
The luxury hotel scene is on the rise in Sri Lanka which means food fans have even more opportunity to explore the country’s rich and varied cuisine. At the Owl and the Pussycat Hotel, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection, guests can enjoy fine dining as well as casual beach fare in a historic setting near ancient forts and Buddhist temples. A new upscale addition is 94-room Jetwing Lake Resort offering a contemporary design with views of Dambulla, home of the famous Dambulla Cave Temple and proximity to the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. This property features authentic Sri Lankan cuisine, such as curries prepared from local ingredients, as well as an open-air bar set within the forest tree tops, complementing its focus on eco-friendly architecture and commitment to environmentally sustainable tourism.
