A luxury honeymoon in Sri Lanka gives you blissful Indian Ocean beaches, but compared to Mauritius, the Maldives, and the Seychelles, there’s so much more to explore in this intoxicating country. From its fabled Cultural Triangle - real Indiana Jones territory that's home to five UNESCO heritage sites, to its lush Tea Country and astounding National Parks - home to the highest density of leopard in the world, Sri Lanka offers plenty of options for a honeymoon of adventure and intrigue.
Sri Lanka’s beaches are your quintessential tropical island coastlines; think palm borders, untouched sands and brilliant turquoise seas. Unlike many of its Indian Ocean neighbours though, Sri Lanka’s coasts have been left wonderfully untouched, with a distinctly wild feel for that once-in-a-lifetime trip. Visit the south coast beaches on your Sri Lanka honeymoon and you’ll have whole stretches of beach to yourself, starting married life in style as you sip cocktails under the shade of hanging palms, head out for whale watching excursions, and take night-time dips beneath starry night skies.
Yet Sri Lanka is far more than just a beach destination, with a rich history that makes for a fascinating beach and culture combo honeymoon. See this country at its most colourful in the vibrant yet gentle city of Kandy, where ornamented elephants star in the world’s largest festival - or, for a snapshot of Sri Lanka’s colonial past - and to learn the role that tea and spices played in its history, head to the Dutch colonial peninsula of Galle. Our classic Sri Lanka honeymoon takes you to all of the country’s cultural hotspots, upon which you’ll visit enchanting Buddhist temples, and stay at ancient colonial hotels.
Channel your inner spiritualism on a honeymoon in Sri Lanka, with Buddhism a popular practice in the country. The luxurious Amanwella property is the perfect place for a serene retreat, sitting nestled among a mature coconut grove that backs onto the beach. Enjoy a chilled out honeymoon in its peaceful grounds, opting to spend your time practicing yoga, surfing the waves and enjoying couples’ treatments at the spa.
