New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island paradise, known to ancient Greek mariners as Taprobane. Arab traders called it Serendib - hence the word "serendipity", meaning discovery by happy accident. It was famously described by Marco Polo as "undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world". 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.

This is an environmentally diverse country, with 9 World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd century BC), 86 species of mammals (including elephants and leopards), more than 400 bird species, a colourful array of flowering plants and trees, a Hill Country famous for tea, and 14 national parks.

The complex of five caves with over 2,000 square metres of painted walls and ceilings is the largest area of paintings found in the world.
