FROM TEA TO TEMPLES, JUNGLE TO BEACH

Sri Lanka is all about tailor-made journeys, exploring this beautifully diverse island and staying in the finest boutique hotels. Our two week itinerary combines everything from elephants and tea plantations to culture and beach. This itinerary is perfect for our summer when the east coast is at its best. If you are looking to travel during our winter, we recommend adding the beach stay on the south-west coast to the end of your trip.

  • Day 1 Arrive in the Culture Triangle

    Arrive in Colombo and after a 4-5 hour drive to the iconic Cultural Triangle, settle in your stylish Chalet (with a plunge pool) at Ulagalla for 4 nights. Ulagalla enjoys a wonderful location to explore the nearby national parks or cultural attractions, and offers beautiful surroundings to relax for a couple of days.

     

  • Animal lovers will love the National Parks, head to Wilpattu, a lush wildlife sanctuary full of ponds and wild animals. Bird life, bears, elephants and leopards are commonly spotted here. Minneriya National Park is just as amazing and attracts huge herds of Elephants of up to 100-200 at a time!

    For the adventurous we recommend Sigiriya Rock Fortress, a UNESCO world Heritage site. Climb the 1200 steps to the top and enjoy the most stunning views of the surrounding countryside and most dramatic historical location.

    For the best cultural sites and ruins head to Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka’s splendid medieval capital that was established in the 11th century AD.

    Stay: 2 nights at the Ulagalla in a Chalet.

     

  • Days 5-9 The undiscovered East Coast

    Transfer by road to Trincomalee for 5 nights of unspoilt beach-bliss at the charming Jungle Beach.

    Enjoy the pristine, wild beach and a range of water based activities including whale and dolphin watching, snorkelling, diving and fishing.

    Stay: 5 nights at Jungle Beach.

  • Days 10-11 Kandy

    Transfer by road to Kandy, the capital of the Hill Country and UNESCO World Heritage-listed city. Enjoy the exquisite hospitality at Kandy House for 2 nights.

    We recommend a day trip to Kandy Town, visit the most sacred temple in Sri Lanka, Temple of the Tooth followed by the Royal Botanical Gardens. Stop in town for lunch and look around the boutique shops before heading back your hotel.

    Stay: 2 nights at Kandy House.

  • Days 12-14 Hatton, Nuwara Eliya

    Take a scenic road transfer to Hatton and stay in one of the five bungalows at the tranquil Ceylon Tea Trails for 3 nights.

    Enjoy relaxed activities including nature walks, bike rides around the stunning landscape.

    A visit to a nearby tea factory in these picture-perfect surroundings is a must when in the Tea Country.

    For the more adventurous we recommend climbing Adam's Peak also known as the butterfly mountain. Elevated 2243 metres high it is a physically exhilarating experience. 

    Stay: 3 nights in a bungalow at the Ceylon Tea Trails

    On day 15 you will transfer back to Colombo for your flight home.

  • Take me there
