An island home that boasts a culture that reaches back through 2500 yearsA 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.
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.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
