One of the world's most exotic islands
Sri Lanka is one of the world's most exotic and beautiful islands. You will find mystical ancient cities, thick jungles and miles upon miles of pristine white sand beaches. The culture is warm and the people of Sri Lanka are extremely friendly.
It's an affordable destination to visit in terms of both getting there and the cost of living when you are in resort is very inexpensive.
Many of the resorts have long transfers so we make sure that all of our holidays have private car transfers to make the journey as comfortable as we can for you.
Another excellent way to see Sri Lanka is to take one of the many organised tours we have and combine these with a hotel stay.

The ancient rock fort, Sigiriya, is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. The 200 metre high rock is situated in the heart of the island between Dambula and Habaraue. The surrounding grounds feature the remains of a ruined palace, a vast garden with ponds and fountains, and a network of fortifications. It’s well worth the climb to the top of the rock for spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
The city of Kandy is situated in central Sri Lanka and is surrounded by mountains which are home to vast tea plantations. One of the many reasons to travel the city is to visit the Temple of the Tooth. This fascinating Buddhist temple is situated within the Royal Palace complex and houses a casket containing a tooth of the Buddha.
