Overview
Things to Do
where TO STAY

The small island state of Sri Lanka is located in the Indian Ocean just south of the Indian mainland, off the coast of Tamil Nadu.

The country is famed for its gorgeous beaches, delectable cuisine, excellent hospitality, rich biodiversity, cascading tea gardens, ancient Buddhist and Hindu heritage and exotic wildlife.

It was formerly known as Ceylon and was an important stopover in the so-called Spice Trade that spanned from the European continent to the islands of South East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand).

It became the theatre of a political power struggle among various European powers, the marks of which it still bears in its heritage.

Today, Sri Lanka is one of the region’s most popular island nations with tens of thousands of tourists flocking to its shores and mainland every year. It is a cheaper and more pristine alternative to the touristy islands of Bali, Thailand and the Maldives.

We offers you the best Sri Lanka travel experience with personalized itineraries that come with imaginative bespoke activities. Our tours are customized for you and cater to your individual style and choices.

We offer 24/7 guidance and support with a team of highly qualified travel consultants, advisors and tour guides.

Beachfront Bliss: Luxurious Coastal Retreats

Coming to a tropical beach paradise like Sri Lanka and denying yourself a luxurious beach holiday at a coastal retreat would be an unpardonable oversight.

The 1,112-mile-long coastline of this island nation contains some of the world’s prettiest beaches. Do yourself a favor and check yourself into a high-quality beach retreat with white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, clear blue skies and just the perfect weather.

We particularly recommend Unawatuna (near Galle), Bentota in the southwest, and Mirissa in the south. All of these beach havens are perfect for swimming, sunbathing, cruising and water adventure activities.
