Your Destination

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found in 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 of the Indo-Asian best-kept secrets. Visit their ancient sites and marvel over their 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. And if 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, and 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 life for more experienced divers. The Maldives has 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.

Your Itinerary

Day 1: Airport - Habarana
Upon your arrival at Colombo International Airport, you will be met by a designated chauffeur guide. After the formalities at the airport, you will be escorted to your air-conditioned vehicle and proceed to Colombo (45 mins - 1 hour). On arrival, check in to the hotel and free for leisure. Overnight at hotel.

Day 2: Habarana - Sigiriya - Minneriya - Habarana
After breakfast leave for the Sigiriya Rock Fortress where you could climb the 1200 steps and admire the fabulous frescoes on the walls of the ancient rock fortress (20-30 mins). The Sigiriya Rock Fortress is known as the 8th wonders of the world. This rock fortress was built by KingKasyapa in the 5th century A.D. and was a royal citadel for more than 18 years. In a sheltered, a pocket, approached by a spiral stairway, is the famous frescoes. The summit of the rock, with an area of nearly one hectare, was the site of the palace and the outer wall was built on the very brink of the precipice. The UNESCO sponsored Central Cultural Fund has restoredSigiriya 5th-century water gardens to their former glory.

On completion proceed to Minneriya National park for an exciting wildlife safari! Minneriya National Park - Minneriya national park is one of the best places in the country to see wild elephants, which are often present in huge numbers, and wading birds. Dominated by the ancient Minneriya Tank, the park has plenty of scrubs, forest and wetlands in its 88.9 sq km to also provide shelter for toque macaques, sambar deer, buffalo, crocodiles and leopards (the latter are very rarely seen, however). Elephants, which can number 200 or more, come to feed and bathe during what is known as ‘the Gathering’; and flocks of birds, such as little cormorants, painted storks, herons and large pelicans all fish in the shallow waters.

You will then return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure, enjoying the hotel amenities. Overnight at hotel.
Day 3: Habarana - Matale - Kandy
After breakfast at the hotel, check out from the hotel and proceed to Kandy. En route make a visit to the Spice Garden in Matale.

Matale is famous for its spice gardens. 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. On completion, continue your journey to Kandy and check in to the hotel. Overnight at hotel.
Kandy is a lovely city, the Hill Capital and the last stronghold of the Sinhala Kings retains an aura of grandeur, which time has not affected. Encircled by hills, with a tranquil lake in its centre, it is the site of the renowned "Temple of the Tooth". Kandy and its satellite villages are at the centre of the island’s handicraft industry and its traditional dances are the most spectacular in the country.
Later in the afternoon, visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic after a small shopping tour in a Gem Lapidary. Considered the foremost sacred place of worship in the Buddhist World, according to legend, the tooth was taken from 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. Overnight stay at Tree of Life or similar.
Day 4: Kandy - Peradeniya - Kandy
After breakfast at the hotel, proceed to the Royal Botanical Gardens. This was originally the King’s own royal pleasure garden that was later converted into a botanic garden and opened to the public. At the Royal Botanical Gardens at ‘Peradeniya’, you could treat your eyes to an amazing, wide and rare collection of tropical and temperate, exotic and indigenous flora, and an orchid house with the largest collection in Asia. You will then take a city tour of Kandy and then return to your hotel to spend the rest of your day at leisure. Overnight at hotel.
Day 5: Kandy - Maldives
Today after breakfast you will be transferred to the Colombo International Airport (approx 2-3 hrs) to catch your flight to the Maldives. After the arrival at Maldives airport, you will be met by a representative and thereafter you will be escorted to the resort representative in the airport. Then you will be transferred to the resort by speed boat (approx 40 mins). Overnight at hotel.

Day 6-7, 9, or 11: Maldives
Enjoy all the facilities at the hotel and spend your days at leisure by the beautiful beach or making use of the hotel's facilities. Overnight at hotel.

Day 8, 10 or 12: Maldives - Departure
After enjoying a fantastic stay in paradise, you will be transferred to the Maldives Airport to catch your flight back home. Overnight at hotel.
