HOLIDAYS IN SRI LANKA

Beautiful and beguiling, a true rising star on the travel to-do list, a must on the bucket list - is a luxury holiday to Sri Lanka. This wonderful island nation bursts with a warmth, diversity and colour like no other destination: from its golden sands to thickly forested mountain peaks; from vivid prayer flags fluttering in the breeze to acre upon acre of lush tea plantation; from emerald lakes to the turquoise Indian Ocean, there's a visual and unparalleled vibrancy throughout, waiting to be explored.

WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LOVES SRI LANKA

‘Fascinating history, awe inspiring architecture, jaw dropping scenery, untouched beaches, mesmerising wildlife - Sri Lanka has it all’ - Carl, Sri Lanka Specialist

THINGS TO DO IN SRI LANKA

1. Boutique Hotels. Each and every Sri Lanka hotel that we feature has been handpicked in order to bring the region and experience to life in a truly unique way - it is all about subtle luxury and relaxed local living. Click here to see our hand-picked selection of accommodation.

2. Untouched Beaches. If you have been to Sri Lanka you will know the south and west coastline is beautiful yet fairly well trodden. However, visit the unspoiled and unexplored east coast during May - October – for a totally off the beaten track experience.

3. Wildlife. However long you intend to spend in Sri Lanka, make sure you fit in a visit to one of the stunning national parks and if time permits stay in one of the luxury safari camps in either Yala (south east) or Wilpattu (north west). The island is famous for its abundance of Elephant and Leopard as well as countless numbers of bird species. Click here for our guide to the national parks of Sri Lanka. 

4. Tea. Tea remains one of the major exports of Sri Lanka. The main tea hills surrounding Nuwara Eliya and Kandy boast a number of stunning converted tea factories in which you can stay, or visit one of the working factories whilst staying at a boutique retreat such as Ceylon Tea Trails, Camellia Hills or Ellerton

5. Cultural Triangle. However in to (or not in to!) your culture you are - any visit to Sri Lanka should include at least a few nights within stones throw of the Cultural Triangle. Not only is the jungle clad landscape mesmerising in itself, the ancient cities of Sigiriya, Anuradhapura, Dambulla are fascinating and 100% worth visiting - you won't regret it!

Sri Lanka Family Holidays

Family holidays to Sri Lanka are all about quality accommodation, well-planned travel route, comfortable vehicles and lots of fun things to do as a family. We recommend staying only in a couple of hotels and do day trips, so the children don’t need to move from one hotel to another every other day. One of our favourite hotels is the beautiful Ulagalla, which has a two bedroom chalet for families and lots of fascinating places to visit nearby. Not forgetting the cheeky monkeys who reside at the estate! For a great coast location we recommend Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle. Click here to read more about family holidays in Sri Lanka

Our favourite hotels in Sri Lanka

In true Turquoise style, we have handpicked all the properties we work with in Sri Lanka. Ulagalla, Water Gardens and Jetwing Vil Uyana are our favourites in the Cultural Triangle, whilst EllertonKandy House and Ceylon Tea Trails are perhaps the most iconic Sri Lankan luxury hotels for those visiting the Hill Country. For the ultimate, low-key beach chic on the east coast, check out Jungle Beach or Uga Bay and then heading south look at KK Beach or for families, choose from Anantara Peace Haven or Cape Weligama. There are also a number of stunning villa properties on the south coast and in Galle that are brilliant for larger groups or families looking for a private experience with their own space - talk to our consultants for their top recommendations.
