Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found on such a small area of land and a 2,000 year old culture, Sri Lanka is as fascinating as it is beautiful. A destination that is often skipped by many a traveller on their trips to India or Asia, Sri Lanka remains one on the Indo-Asian best kept secrets. Visit its ancient sites and marvel over its legendary temples, or see the sacred home of the world’s oldest living tree, Anuradhapura.

Take a safari tour in one of Sri Lanka’s national parks to encounter elephants, leopards, water buffaloes, and exotic birds, or spend the day relaxing on the dazzlingly white, often untrod, beaches. Try your hand at a little surfing or retreat up into the Sri Lankan hills to experience a more temperate climate and the lavish greenery of the tea plantations. In addition, you can even trek through the rainforests with an experienced guide or just take in the breathtaking vistas on a spectacular train ride. With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations, where the charm of the people will simply enchant you.

Your Itinerary

During their tour, our members will follow the itinerary as seen below:

Day 1: Arrival in Colombo - Dambulla
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by a representative and escorted to your air-conditioned vehicle for a transfer to your hotel. Upon arrival, check-in and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Overnight stay in Dambulla.

Day 2: Dambulla - Minneriya - Dambulla
After breakfast at the hotel, visit the Dambulla Rock Cave Temple. The beautiful Royal Rock Temple complex sits about 160m above the road in the southern part of Dambulla. Five separate caves contain about 150 absolutely stunning Buddha statues and paintings, and some of Sri Lanka's most important and evocative religious art. Buddha images were first created here over 2000 years ago, and over the centuries subsequent kings added to, and embellished, the cave art. From the caves there are superb views over the surrounding countryside; Sigiriya is clearly visible from some 20km away. Dambulla is a massive rock from the surrounding plains of Dambulla of 600 feet high which includes climbing of steps as well as walking on the plain boulder. *Not recommended for clients with walking difficulties.

Afterwards, proceed to the Minneriya National Park. Minneriya is yet another haven for the elephants that migrate from surrounding jungles to enjoy the lush grass fields on the banks of the Minneriya reservoir during the dry season. Reports of elephant sightings range from an impressive 100 to 200. The central feature of the park is the ancient Minneriya Tank (built in 3rd century AD by King Mahasena). This tank is generally known as a place to observe the elephants that come to bathe and graze on the grasses as well as the huge flocks of birds that come to fish in the shallow waters. Depending on the movement of the elephants, your chauffeur will decide the best park to visit among Minneriya, Kaudulla and Eco park. Upon completion return to hotel and relax. Overnight stay in Dambulla.
Day 3: Dambulla - Hiriwadunna - Matale - Kandy
Today after breakfast, check out from the hotel and proceed to Kandy. En-route visit Hiriwadunna Village for an authentic Sri Lankan experience. A tour to Hiriwadunna - a beautiful village shaded on either side by a dry zone shrub forest, with unpaved gravel paths and humble village folk - will give you a chance to witness the environment of a typical Sri Lankan village life. A ride on a bullock cart along a dirt track and through rice paddies down to the picturesque Hiriwaduna Lake will leave you with a sense of peacefulness. A catamaran ride on the lake with its large variety of dry zone bird life and views of the surrounding forest, marshland and vegetable plots of local farmers, will be an unforgettable experience for visitors and will most definitely be one of the places they feel most at peace, during the time spent in Sri Lanka. Thereafter, visit the Matale spice garden and proceed to Kandy. Sri Lanka has always been renowned for its spices. Over 15 different spices call Sri Lanka home and many of them are traded in the international spice market. Cinnamon especially is endemic to Sri Lanka, and highest quality ‘true cinnamon’ can be obtained here. The A9 Hwy between Matale and Dambulla is famous for its spice gardens, with over 30 dotted along the road. All offer free tours of their gardens with an English-speaking guide who can explain the merits and health properties of herbs, spices and plants including cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, coffee, nutmeg, pepper, cardamom, aloe vera, iriweriya and the henna plant.  Overnight stay in Kandy.
Day 4: Kandy - Perideniya - Kandy
In the morning, visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic (A World Heritage Site). In the crown jewel of the city, Kandy is the famed Sri Dalada Maligawa, also known as the Temple of the Tooth. The golden-roofed Temple of the Sacred Tooth houses Sri Lanka’s most important Buddhist relic – a tooth of the Buddha. The entire complex is over three centuries old at least, and has seen many a king’s rise and fall. It has seen bloody wars and peaceful reigns and is one of the most historical places still standing in the island. The entire temple complex, from peaked tiled roofs to white walls with large airy windows, is built using classical Kandyan architecture. In the afternoon, visit the Royal Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya. Located in Peradeniya near Kandy, the gardens are noted for their rich and varied collections of tropical woody plants. Occupying 59 hectares (146 acres), it has about 4,000 species of plants. The most important specimens of the garden include palms, some of which are planted in impressive avenues. Significant, too, are the collections of orchids, gymnosperms, and flowering trees.  Overnight stay in Kandy.
Day 5: Kandy - Colombo - Bentota
After breakfast, check out of the hotel and proceed to Bentota via Colombo where you can enjoy a city tour. Colombo, Sri Lanka‘s bustling commercial hub, is located on the country’s west coast and with a population of between 800,000 and one million is by far the country’s biggest city, as well as the most developed. Its natural harbour at the mouth of the Kelani River was a magnet for successive traders and conquerors – initially the Arab merchants, then Portuguese, Dutch and British imperialists.Originally named Kolomthota, Colombo was the main seaport of Kotte, the country’s 15th and 16th century capital. The Fort is still a focal point of government and commercial activity and Pettah has become a district of small shops, markets, and sidewalk stalls, with all the characteristic features of an Oriental bazaar. Upon arrival, check-in to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure, enjoying the hotel's facilities.  Overnight stay at the Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa 4*.

Day 6 - 7, 9 or 11: Bentota
Enjoy the hotel's facilities and spend your days by the pool or the beach in beautiful Bentota. Overnight stay at the Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa 4*,

Day 8, 10 or 12: Bentota - Colombo - Departure
After breakfast, enjoy free time until you are transferred to Colombo Airport for your return flight home.
