Helen_RosemaryB
We’re planning to go to Ceylon for a portion of our honeymoon (in May 2019) and will be booking through a travel agent as it’s part of a larger trip. The travel agent has told us that we can’t book a specific bungalow, and can only give our preference but we’ll only find out if we’ve got it a couple of weeks before the holiday. Has anyone been told the same thing by a travel agent? We’re not sure what to make of it as it seems you can select the bungalow if you book direct through the Ceylon website, and it’s an expensive part of the trip not to be able to choose. If anyone has found the same, did you manage to get the bungalow you requested or did you get put in a different one? We’re thinking Dunkeld as our main preference and then Castlereagh as second - anyone have any other recommendations? We’d particularly like good views of the lake. Thanks in advance!
