Airport - Negombo
At the airport you will be greeted by your chauffeur guide who will take you to the fishing village of Negombo to the boutique hotel Villa Hundira. Enjoy your stay at this restored home which once was that of a local headman overlooking the lagoon.
Negombo - Anuradhapura
Visit the fish market in the morning if you wish. Set off from coastal Colombo to experience the inland delights of Sri Lanka. Enjoy lunch at a delightful local restaurant en-route. Arrive at the boutique hotel Ulagalla Resort, set amidst a village near the ancient kingdom of Anuradhapura and resting beside the lush landscape of the Ulagalla lake.
Explore Anuradhapura and Mihintale. The ruins of Anuradhapura are one of South Asia’s most evocative sights. The sprawling complex contains a rich collection of archaeological and architectural wonders: enormous dagobas (brick stupas), ancient pools and crumbling temples, built during Anuradhapura’s thousand years of rule over Sri Lanka.
Mihintale, the sleepy village and temple complex, holds a special place in the annals of Sri Lankan lore.
Anuradhapura - Sigiriya
Rising dramatically from the central plains, Sigiriya, the enigmatic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya is perhaps Sri Lanka’s single most dramatic sight. Near-vertical walls soar to a flat-topped summit that contains the ruins of an ancient civilisation, thought to be once the epicenter of the short-lived kingdom of Kassapa, and there are spellbinding vistas across mist-wrapped forests in the early morning.
Pidurangala Rock is a massive rock formation almost directly opposite Sigiriya. Pidurangala has an equally majestic view as the former of rolling lake-and-land vistas.
Kings ruled the central plains of Sri Lanka from Polonnaruwa 800 years ago, when it was a thriving commercial and religious center. The glories of that age can be found in the archaeological treasures that still give a pretty good idea of how the city looked in its heyday.
Grab a cooling king coconut en route to refresh yourselves!
Anuradhapura - Hatton
After a leisurely breakfast transfer to the hills of Hatton
En route visit the Matale spice gardens to see how Lankan spices were cultivated. At the end of your journey, check into your luxury bungalow.
Enjoy traditional and luxurious tea planter lifestyle with your very own butler and fantastic tea estate views. Take a tea experience with the hotel residence planter and learn how Ceylon tea is made and how it is tasted and passed on for inspection.
Hatton - Yala
From the pleated hills of Hatton descend to the jungles of Yala. En route visit the gorgeous Rawana and Diyaluma waterfalls. You night’s residence at the exclusive luxury jungle resort is set up within wild of the Yala National Park
Go on morning and afternoon safari today via 4X4 jeep. The Yala National Park is famous for the elusive leopard and has one of the highest densities of leopards in the world. The sloth bear and Asian elephant that are also part of Sri Lanka’s Big Five can be spotted. With some good luck you will witness all these creatures over an evening jeep safari accompanied by a naturalist guide.
Yala - Bentota
En route you can visit the Hummayana blowhole which is a natural phenomenon and if lucky see the stilt fishermen. For those curious about Galle which is famous for its fort that was first built by the Portuguese and then destroyed after Dutch conquered the town of Galle before building one of their own. Take a walking tour along the cobbled pathways to hear tales of the colonial era. Then drop into the turtle hatchery before checking in to your luxury beach getaway.
Have the well-deserved ocean getaway at Saman Villas. Spend an idyllic afternoon watching the crested waves as they bounce off the sun-kissed sands. Blissfully spend your time as you wish whether it be indulging in fine spa and wellness programs, mesmerized by the Indian ocean brushing the soft sands of Saman Villa. You will find that the coast at Saman Villa is fairly secluded giving you privacy.
