Deep Delve Into The Beauty and Luxury of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is the perfect destination to visit for that much needed R&R and holistic healing

Sri Lanka has long been considered one of the best travel destinations in the world. Indeed, its tropical climate, beautiful beaches, water sports, unique wildlife, fascinating history, and culture, not to mention incredible food, are just a few reasons why it is at the top of the travel wish list. With wellness so paramount post pandemic, Sri Lanka is also considered the perfect destination to visit for that much needed R&R and holistic healing. Finally, September and October are some of the best months to visit Sri Lanka.

With this in mind, we wanted to also share information on The Luxury Travel Book, villa rental specialists with an incredible selection of villas on the south coast beaches of Sri Lanka. Each with a very individual style, some traditional colonial whilst others are more modern. Each is very spacious with large grounds and swimming pools. All are staffed and include the services of a chef. Finally, we have included details on adventure tour operators, Wild Frontiers’ new tailor made itinerary. The ‘Sri Lanka Family Adventure’ gives guests to opportunity to hike through the landscapes and forests around Kitugala and Laxapana and explore the Udawalawe National Park for elephants.

Sri Lanka Family Adventure – 11 Days with Wild Frontiers

The beautiful island of Sri Lanka is blessed with a wealth of scenic and cultural highlights. Home to the Sinhalese since the 6th century BC and steeped in the myths and legends of the Ramayana and the Buddha, the island is a stunning fusion of ancient traditions and staggering natural beauty. Little wonder then that Marco Polo called it the finest island in the world. But there is more to Sri Lanka than just Buddhist monuments and tea plantations. Its tropical wetlands, mountains and rainforest present some great opportunities for family adventure activities and priceless interaction. This stunning journey offers a chance to hike, ride, raft and canoe through one of the most fascinating destinations in Asia. Beginning with a boat trip amongst the rich mangrove forests of the Muthurajawela Nature Reserve, guests will then learn how to make palm wine with the locals, climb to the sacred summit of Adam’s Peak and canoe along the idyllic waterways of the Kalu Ganga, before taking some time out to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
