Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is located at the southern tip of India, just north of the Equator and surrounded by the Indian Ocean. Sri Lanka sweeps from mountainous jungle terrain, to vivid green tea plantations, down to fabulous beaches. British colonialism meets colorful Sri Lankan culture, amazing wildlife and nature, and with fantastic boutique hotels, we will craft a perfect luxury Sri Lanka vacation.

Sri Lanka simply has it all: tropical beaches, cooler mountainous terrain punctuated with waterfalls, incredible wildlife, tea plantations, fabulous food and diverse culture featuring time old ancient sites. Sri Lanka's coasts are tropical with many palm-lined sandy beaches and charming towns such as Galle or Bentota. The center is largely mountainous, has a cooler climate and is dotted with tea plantations and architectural reminders of the British colonial era. Sri Lanka has some spectacular ruins in the north of the country such as Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla, and its many national parks such as Yala and Willpattu contain abundant wildlife, including monkey, deer, buffalo, elephant and even leopard. Sri Lanka is great for families and couples alike - whether you want to slowly traverse it in style, or get off the beaten track to some of Sri Lanka's more adventurous regions. It is ideal for a luxury honeymoon, and when combined with the Maldives provides the perfect mix of culture, adventure and beach.
