Luxury travel in Sri Lanka is experiencing a well-deserved comeback after the 2004 tsunami and recovering from a long civil war kept visitors at bay for years. Though often simply considered India’s tropical sister, Sri Lanka has a fascinating culture and history all its own. Long known as Serendib and Ceylon, it was a British crown colony until 1948 and officially became Sri Lanka in 1972. Unlike in India, the majority of Sri Lankans are Buddhist, and their devotion to the religion has resulted in numerous beautiful landmarks around the country. Marco Polo was so impressed with Sri Lanka so impressed with Sri Lanka that he declared it the most beautiful island of its size in the world, and after their Sri Lanka tours, most visitors tend to agree.

On every visit we’re astounded by the intense natural beauty — lush jungles where wild elephants and elusive leopards roam, brilliant coral islets, endless coastlines dotted with coconut groves, and the verdant hills of tea country. And then there are the other beauties that color the island: saffron-robed monks, women dressed in brilliantly colored saris, ancient Buddhist temples that dot ancient cities rich with culture and heritage. What is wonderful about luxury travel in Sri Lanka is everything is close! Visitors, even with limited time, are able to experience the many sides of this island on their Sri Lanka tour.
The spectacular properties are another reason we enjoy luxury vacations in Sri Lanka. Whether you’re seeking the ultimate in relaxation with empty beaches and impeccable service, romantic overwater thatched-roof bungalows amongst the rice paddies, or you’d prefer to be based in the middle of a colonial tea estate (complete with afternoon tea and biscuits), you will find all of those options on a Sri Lankan tour. Or perhaps you’re dreaming of a four-poster bed, baby grand piano in a colonial mansion set in bustling for town? You will find that, too, on your luxury Sri Lanka vacation.
