Skylark's Marketing and Editorial Associate, Arushi Mehra recently visited the picture-perfect town of Tangalle in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka. After a week of indulging in mouth-watering curries, sailing through lotus-filled lagoons, Instagramming dancing peacocks and visiting a 200-year old temple—the newest addition to our team is ready to report back on this Southeast Asian gem!
When was the last time you were impressed by a mint on the pillow? Yeah, we can’t remember either. Not that we’re complaining: High-end hotels have been engaged in something of an amenities arms race for years, with guests ending up the winners. We’ve all come to expect—and usually receive—niceties like flat-screen TVs, crisp duvets, multiple charging ports and high-end bath products. That’s why we’ve created the Skylark Originals: a list of innovative amenities that show a spark of creativity or thoughtfulness, and special experiences that bring a destination to life in a new way. Along the way, we also discovered airlines, airports, and apps that made us feel like V-VIP’s, so we included those, too. Hats off to them and the other travel providers that are Making Amenities Great Again!
