The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Ultimate Luxury Holidays, Slow Travel, Culture & Beach

You might well have been to Sri Lanka before, and just want to return on holiday to your favourite destinations without the need to see it all again on a long tour. It is very much a luxury holiday, a way to kick-back and let the winter sun completely rejuvenate you, staying in fantastic hotels. Combine the outstanding Ceylon Tea Trails with the two Aman hotels on the south coast in Galle and Tangalle. There is no need for the long drive down to the coast as you can fly in a seaplane from the lake down to nearby Kogalla. All in all, you’ll spend your days just putting your feet up, and we can tailor the day-to-day experience with a collection of interesting experiences such as walks in the hills, maybe learning a spot of Sri Lankan cookery or cycling through the paddy-fields outside of Galle. You can do as much or as little as you want, it’s your holiday after all!
