Ceylon Tea Trails HERO

Luxury Sri Lanka and The Maldives Honeymoon

Inspirational cultural and beach honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives

Combine the romance of two islands with this Sri Lanka and Maldives honeymoon. It’s the perfect mix of nature, culture and beach. Sri Lanka will capture your imagination with its heritage sites in Anuradhapura and its photographic tea country, whilst the Maldives is pure honeymoon heaven.

The focus of the Sri Lanka portion of this honeymoon is on the island’s cultural heritage. At Ulagalla Resort in Anuradhapura, you will be well located in the Cultural Triangle. You will visit Sigiriya Lion Rock as well as the Dambulla Cave Temple. A certain highlight will be backroad cycling through the ancient city of Anuradhapura with a guide. This sacred city is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a must for culture vultures. There will also be the chance to stop at the Buddhist hill city of Kandy to see the Temple of the Tooth which houses a relic of the tooth of Buddha. Then for a change of pace, the picturesque Tea Country, and a stay at Ceylon Tea Trails, luxurious, colonial tea-planter bungalows. The area is known for its fertile tea plantations, spectacular views, and wonderful hiking trails. A smooth transition then to an island in the Maldives. Arrive by boat to Gili Lankanfushi Resort offering all overwater suites. It’s a natural ‘no news no shoes’ private castaway island, perfect to relax in after the busy sightseeing in Sri Lanka.
