Hi, I am Petra Alexander Rambukwelle, worked for Sri Lankan Airlines and now married to a it's pilot ( captain) . I have been experiencing in the hospitality industry from my very little age because my father who is a German speaking tour guide plus a chef experienced in Germany too. He himself running a home stay Ayurvedic wellness center where people can relax in the peacefulness of nature while enjoying authentic Sri Lankan life style. After getting married I started my own career in tourism from this "Captain's Lodge". Further we have extended our service to a safari lodge , an apartment in Nuwara Eliya and Colombo. I love this industry because my first job also was in customer care unit in Sri Lankan Airlines where I gathered vast knowledge in every way. I would not limit our care only in the bungalow, but also from the time you book in to until you reach back your home safely. We would like to join our hands with guests to help as much as we can in various ways. My happiness is your care!!!
