Sri Lanka

A compact island of diverse scenery, lying serenely in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka offers far more than its beautiful tropical beaches.  The island's long multicultural past means that Buddhist stupas sit side by side with Hindu temples whilst Muslims - descendants of Arab spice traders - still contribute significantly to the island's culture. The national parks are inhabited by a huge variety of birds, reptiles and mammals including leopards, whilst throughout the island monkeys, elephants, monitor lizards and birds of prey are common sights.

Lush tea plantations, ancient ruins and idyllic sandy beaches; Sri Lanka is an intoxicating island. Lying just off the southern coast of India, this seductive nation revels in its own unique identity and geography, with a variety of landscapes and attractions to suit every visitor on holiday in Sri Lanka. Few countries offer such a diverse range of terrain with a lush green interior dotted with tea and spice plantations, wildlife-rich national parks, the perfect habitat for a Sri Lanka safari,  and ancient ruins, a coast famed for its stunning gold sand beaches and picturesque fishing villages.  From the colonial walled town of Galle with its Portuguese villas, Dutch churches and British street names to the Buddhist shrines and Hindu temples you'll see throughout your travels, Sri Lanka is also a place for sight-seeing.  Whether you want to visit ancient ruins and tea plantations, to lounge on the beach or go surfing, white-water rafting or wildlife spotting such as whale watching, there is something and somewhere for everyone planning a Sri Lanka holiday.

Offering an excellent choice of accommodation options, Sri Lanka's hotels range from chic boutique hotels, often housed in beautifully restored colonial bungalows or wallawwas (mansions) to larger resorts boasting every conceivable facility.  There are also some beautiful Portuguese colonial villas, particularly in the south of the island, featuring swimming pools, private gardens and staff, affording a luxurious Sri Lanka holiday. An excellent choice for families or groups, these intimate retreats can be taken over exclusively for a week or more.
