We had a really great time. Everyone was so kind and made sure we had a comfortable time at the bungalow. Great hospitality by Sathish, Lawrence & Mahinda. We are so happy that we selected Netherleigh Bungalow. Hoping to spend our time here once again in the future. Thank you for letting us enjoy a great holiday.
