Taru Villas Maia HERO

Honeymoon to Sri Lanka and The Maldives

Inspirational safari, beach and cultural honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives

Offering a mix of adventure, culture, wildlife, natural beauty and idyllic beach, this honeymoon itinerary ticks all the boxes. Explore the ancient temples of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, embark on a unique wildlife safari in Wilpattu National Park and luxuriate on a secluded island in the Maldives.

Begin your honeymoon with your safari in the off-the-beaten-track Wilpattu National Park, staying at Leopard Trails, a luxurious, yet rustic, African-style safari camp. Discover the area’s history and find the ancient ruins in the park, venture through the thick untouched jungle for a true wilderness safari experience and soak up the scenic landscapes blanketed in scrublands, wetlands, and thick jungle. Look out for leopard, elephant, mongoose, sloth bear and a variety of wetland bird species. Move on then to Taru Villa Maia, a private and luxurious boutique hotel, the perfect base from which to ascend the majestic Sigiriya rock fortress, one of the Cultural Triangle’s key monuments. During your time here you will enjoy a backroad cycling tour of Anuradhapura with a local historian, as well as visit the Royal ancient city of the Kingdom of Polonnaruwa and the Dambulla Cave Temple. You are also within reach of Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks where you can spot Sri Lanka’s legendary elephants. After much sightseeing, the Maldives calls. An easy flight from island to island will see you spend the next 5 nights at Constance Moofushi Resort. When you are not lounging by the beach or the infinity pool, the South Ari Atoll is widely regarded as one of the best diving and snorkelling spots in the world.
