Cape Weligama HERO

Luxury Sri Lanka Solo Vacation

Inspirational Luxury Sri Lanka Solo Vacation

A comprehensive solo itinerary, this trip takes in the best of Sri Lanka’s cultural sights, includes a safari in Yala National Park, and features a beach stay in Welligama. The hotels included have been specifically chosen for their solo discounts as well as their central locations and excellent service.

After a night in the country’s capital Colombo, you will journey with your private driver to Anuradhapura in the heart of the Cultural Triangle. From the luxurious Ulagalla Resort you will explore the area with your guide including a visit to the Dambulla Cave Temple and Sigiriya Lion Rock. There will also be a unique backroads cycling tour of the ancient city of Anuradhapura with a historian. Next up, the Buddhist hill city of Kandy, staying at the eco-wellness resort Santani. You will experience an evening city tour which will involve some cooking and a delicious meal. For a complete change of scenery, your next stop will be the picturesque Tea Country and a stay at Ceylon Tea Trails, a historic tea planter’s bungalow. Here you will have the opportunity to hike a portion of the Pekoe trail, a 300-kilometre walking trail that runs throughout the Central Highlights of Sri Lanka, one of Asia’s best-kept secrets. Then you will embark on a safari whilst staying at Uga Chena Hills. This area blends tropical beaches and exotic wildlife, a unique location bordering the Yala National Park. With a leopard density reportedly higher than anywhere on the planet, and a varied landscape from dense forests to moist wetlands, you will experience Yala on safari drives. This solo adventure ends at the luxury clifftop resort, Cape Weligama Resort on the south coast of the island. You will have 3 days here to relax by the pool or head to the watersports centre. Nearby you will find cycling trips, surfing, whale watching and diving. Galle's 17th-century fort (a regional highlight) is a 40-minute drive away.
