Sri Lanka

The Pearl of the Indian Ocean

An island home that boasts a culture that reaches back through 2500 years

A culture developed against the backdrop of stunning natural scenery
 

From the unforgettable allure of its palm shaded beaches and lush green tea plantations to the welcoming warmth of its people, it’s easy to see why Sri Lanka is such a beloved holiday destination. Originally named Serendib Taprobane, meaning the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, this incredible island of paradise offers an enticing balance of adventure and tranquillity.

Island wonders

Luxury holidays in Sri Lanka provide wondrous scenic experiences. Bathe in the beauty of the island sun on shimmering golden sand beaches or stroll leisurely through the carefully cared for botanical gardens. Travel out to the rolling high hills and visit the verdant tea estates or the tea loving town of Nuwara Eliya nicknamed “Little England” for its Georgian architecture and Anglican Church.

Rediscover our natural world on your holiday. With Sri Lanka’s 1,600km coastline, there are many chances for whale spotting from the shore. A must visit is the Yala National Park. Its vast expanse is bursting with wildlife of all kinds. Crocodiles, elephants, wild boars and bears all make their home in the park, as well as a myriad of birds visiting from all over the world.

Take a trip back through time at the Rock Fortress in Sigiriya. This ancient citadel was built in the fifth century AD and is widely accepted as the eighth wonder of the world. Discover Sri Lanka’s rich history or walk the beautiful recently-restored water gardens. Another fortress from long ago is Polonnaruwa where you can behold the temples, statues and suites of its royal residents.

Sri Lanka has plenty in store for the more adventurous among us. Surrounded by crystal blue waters the island provides first class dive sites making it the perfect place for underwater exploration. Sporting great breakers, it’s also a mecca for surfers.

Celebrated for its irresistible cuisine, Sri Lanka is a food fanatic’s paradise and its waters bear an astounding array of produce from fish, fruits and vegetables to incredible spices. Choose from slow-cooked curries, mouth-wateringly tender roasts and freshly caught sea-food or eat on the go and spoil your senses with some spicy street food. Whatever you eat, you can wash it down with ice-cold coconut water, served right from the shell all over the island.
