Your Destinations

Sri Lanka

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.

Maldives

The Maldives archipelago consists of 1190 tiny islands scattered across the Indian Ocean. Only 185 of these islands are inhabited, while the others are used largely for tourism and agriculture. The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars perched atop a 960km submarine ridge, while the land features lush tropical vegetation with abundant local coconut palms.

The Maldives is renowned for its incredible diving opportunities. The crystal clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, while the reef walls offer a kaleidoscope of sea lifefor more experienced divers. The Maldives have an amazing diversity of sea life, with corals and over 2000 species of fish, ranging from reef fish and reef sharks to moray eels, rays and whale sharks.

The local culture features a lively mix of South Indian, Sinhalese and Arab influences that is reflected in the traditional music, cuisine and art of the island.

During the tour portion of your stay, you will follow the itinerary as seen below while you stay in 5* hotels and enjoy a guided tour with a private driver.

Day 1: Airport - Habarana 
Upon your arrival at Colombo International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed by a representative. After the formalities at the airport, you will be escorted to your air-conditioned vehicle and thereafter you will proceed to Habarana (approx 4-5-hour drive). Upon arrival check in to the hotel and spend free time at your own leisure.

After breakfast at the hotel, proceed to visit the Sigiriya Lion Rock Fortress with the optional excursion, booktabl eat the second stage of the booking process (approx - 15 to 20 minutes’ drive).

Afterwards, venture to Hiriwaduna Village and thereafter proceed on a village trek. You can enjoy a traditional lunch during the village trek.

Hiriwadunna is just 2 km drive from Habarana, and you will have a chance to trek through the archetypal Sri Lankan villages. The trek begins with an awesome walk along a bund of a Wewa or manmade reservoir. The reservoir itself, the surrounding scrub jungle, the marshland and the village, are a hive of early morning or an evening activity. The amazing bird life, butterflies and possible sightings of crocodile only add to the charm of seeing the villagers as they go about their early morning tasks of fishing, or washing clothes at the periphery of the lake.

After this, return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure, enjoying the hotel amenities. Dinner and overnight at your hotel.
Day 3: Habarana - Matale - Kandy - Nuwara Eliya 
After breakfast at the hotel, check out from the hotel and proceed to Nuwara Eliya via Kandy. En route visit Dambulla Cave Temple and Matale spice garden (approx. 25 to 30 mins).

Dambulla Cave Temple is a vast isolated rock mass, and it was here that king Valagambahu took refuge in the 01st century B.C. He later turned the caves into a rock temple. Dambulla is a world heritage site and is the most impressive of Sri Lanka’s cave temples. The complex of five caves with over 2000 sq. metres of painted walls and ceiling found here are over 2000 years old and is the largest area of painting found in the world. The caves contain over 150 images of the Buddha of which the largest is the colossal figure of the Buddha carved out of rock and spanning 14 meters. Dambulla is a massive rock from the surrounding plains of Dambulla of 600 feet high which include climbing of steps as well as walking on the plain boulder.  

On completion, proceed to Kandy. En route take a visit of a spice garden in Matale (approx. 1-1.5 hrs).

Matale is famous for its batik production and spice gardens. Batik has been an ancient art of painting cloth and today Sri Lanka is among the world leaders in the design of batik. Batik galleries and factories offer batik from simple single-colored designs to intricate multi-colored masterpieces. For centuries, spices have been one of Sri Lanka's celebrated exports. Spices are mostly grown in home gardens (as a home industry) and used not only to flavour food but also for medicine and cosmetics. 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. 

Thereafter, continue to Kandy to do some shopping and to visit the Temple of Tooth Relic  (approx. 1-1.5 hrs).

Visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic, a Buddhist temple in the City of Kandy. It is considered the foremost sacred place of worship in the Buddhist World. According to legend, the tooth was taken from the Buddha as he lay on his funeral pyre. It immediately became an object of great reverence and was enshrined in a series of nested jewelled reliquaries. On the outside, the temple buildings are not magnificent or elaborately decorated. While with red roofs, they cluster around Kandy Lake. In striking contrast to the plain exterior, the interiors of the temple buildings are richly carved and decorated with inlaid woods, ivory and lacquer. The relic of the tooth is kept in a two-story inner shrine fronted by two large elephant tusks. On completion, proceed to Nuwara Eliya and check into your hotel for dinner and you overnight stay. 
Day 4: Nuwara Eliya - Ella - Udawalawe
After breakfast, check out from the hotel and proceed to Udawalawe via Ella. En route, you'll take a small sightseeing tour in Ella (approx. 1.5 - 2 hrs). 

Ella is a small sleepy village positioned high in the mountains, on the southern edge of Sri Lanka's Hill Country. Most visitors are happy to be there for many days as you can find plenty of things to do to keep you occupied. Ella is situated in the middle of the beautiful countryside, with small vegetable plots in the valleys, tea plantations on the hill slopes and forests on the top.

On completion, proceed to Udawalawe and check in to your hotel (approx. 2-2.5 hrs). Once here, you'll get to visit Udawalawe National Park for an exciting safari. 

Udawalawe National Park is located approximately 200 km south-east of Colombo city and is a major eco tourism destination in Sri Lanka. Another important habitat for the elephant (a herd of about 250 is believed to be permanently resident) and a recorded number of 12 amphibian species, 21 species of fish, 33 reptiles, 184 species of birds and 43 mammals. During your visit, it is not unusual to see whole herds of adults and young elephants feeding or bathing and playing in the water! In addition to this main attraction, the park is home to many water buffalo, water monitor lizards, sambar deer, monkeys and the occasional leopard, as well as being an exciting location for bird enthusiasts.

Thereafter, you'll return to your hotel and relax. Dinner and overnight at your hotel. 

Day 5: Udawalawe - Airport - Maldives
Today, following breakfast, you will be transferred to the Colombo Airport for your flight to the Maldives. After the arrival at Maldives airport you will be met by one of our representatives and thereafter you will be escorted to the resort representative in the airport.
