This small, teardrop shaped island in the Indian Ocean is a treasure trove of fragrant spice gardens, rolling tea plantations, ancient archaeological sites, tropical jungle and some truly beautiful beaches.
Take a luxury holiday to Sri Lanka and your tailor-made itinerary could include an exploration of the Cultural Triangle, home of the country’s finest collection of UNESCO-listed sites. Exploring landmarks like Sigiriya, the enchanting ruins of Polonnaruwa and the elaborate shrines of lakeside Kandy may well be the highlights of your trip.
Your Sri Lankan adventure will also likely include a stay in Galle, a UNESCO protected fort town on the coast, where you can visit colonial-era churches, discover Buddhist temples and browse boutique shops for art and handmade jewellery all in one day. Our specialists could also introduce you to the enchanting Hill Country, a land of jungle-clad mountains, tea plantations and misty hillsides scattered with time-worn British settlements. Sip on a steaming cups of the region’s famous Ceylon tea or put on your walking boots and tackle the 2,000-metre summit of Adam’s Peak.
For lovers of wildlife, Sri Lanka’s collection of national parks cannot be missed. See buffalo, sambar deer and huge herds of wild elephant in Uda Walawe, or venture to less visited Wilpattu National Park to catch a glimpse of the elusive leopard alongside crocodiles and an array of exotic birds.
And at the end of your trip, you’ll find a string of palm-fringed beaches that are perfect for recharging your batteries. Get in touch with an expert today to start planning your tailor-made Sri Lanka holiday.
