Sri Lanka Honeymoon


Call 01242 546 624 to speak to a specialist

Sri Lanka offers so many wonderful experiences and a perfect balance if you like a smattering of culture balanced with plenty of relaxation. The Sri Lankan people are friendly and welcoming, there are stunning boutique properties which won't break the bank, and, being a relatively small island, nothing is ever too far away. 

If you are looking to explore Sri Lanka's rich historical past, the Cultural Triangle is a must. There are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and ancient cities, as well as national parks where you can witness some of the largest gatherings of Asiatic elephants in the wild during the late summer on their annual migration. The cities of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura are easily explored by bike –a great way to discover ruined stupas, palaces and monasteries surrounded by jungle. Whilst the climb up the imposing rock fortress of Sigiriya can be a challenging one, it's well worth the effort for the dramatic views of the area, and the Dambulla Cave Temples located close by are home to impressive Buddha statues and cave temples dating back to the 3rd century BC.

Honeymoon Highlights in Sri Lanka

  • Racing through the jungles of Yala National Park in search of leopards is made all the more fun by a Champagne breakfast.
  • No visit to the hill country is complete without staying in a luxurious converted planter's bungalow –with log fires, sumptuous afternoon teas and spa treatments on the menu.
  • When in the Hill Country, try climbing Adam's Peak at night –either on foot or by car –for breakfast while watching the sun rise over this beautiful landscape.
  • Floating over the Cultural Triangle by hot air balloon is a truly memorable way to see ruined cities and rock fortresses.
  • While in Sri Lanka, why not have your marriage blessed in the traditional Sri Lankan way?  

A short drive south through the spice plantations takes you to the bustling market town of Kandy, home to the famous Temple of the Tooth and the annual Esala Perahera Summer festival, which culminates in a procession involving hundreds of decorated elephants, dancers, drummers and fi re-eaters. A leisurely train journey will take you up into the tea plantations through small villages and past tea pickers in their colourful saris.

On the south coast, you can go wildlife spotting in the national parks, head to the beach at night to see turtles lay their eggs, or take a boat to see blue whales, spinner dolphins and sperm whales. The southwest and northeast coasts are also renowned for picturesque palm-fringed beaches where you can end your honeymoon with time to relax on the beach, spoil yourselves in the spa, and spend your evenings eating seafood on a romantic sandy beach.
