The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Ultimate Luxury Holidays, Culture & Beach, First Time Visitor

This is our way of doing Sri Lanka in style; hand-picking the best hotels, cutting down on the long drives by using private helicopters and including exceptional, unique experiences that showcase this amazing country to the fullest. Combine the amazing historic ancient cities in the north, the city of Kandy, the rolling tea plantations in the hill country and ending on the palm-fringed beaches of the south coast. The drives in Sri Lanka can be fairly long, so we have included private helicopters to get around ensuring you spend longer at each destination. The only drive we think is worth doing is the drive from Kandy to the Tea Country, as you pass lush green tea fields. The hotels on offer are superb, and it goes without saying we use the best suites that they offer, rather than their entry-level rooms. Put simply, this is Sri Lanka showcased in the best possible way.
