Wild Coast Tented Lodge HERO

Ultimate Luxury Sri Lanka and Maldives Vacation

Luxurious Sri Lanka and Maldives Vacation

Travel in style through Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle, and picturesque tea country, safari in Yala National Park and then jet off to the island paradise of the Maldives. You will be privately escorted on your tours and stay in ultra-luxurious accommodation throughout.

This memorable luxury vacation begins in Sri Lanka in a luxurious villa at Water Garden Sigiriya, overlooking the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya, one of the Cultural Triangle’s key monuments. You will get to climb this epic fortress as well as visit key sites such as the Monkey Kingdom of Polonnaruwa and the ancient Dambulla Cave Temple. Then, you will head to the hills of Kandy, and stay at Santani Wellness Resort, a soul-soothing eco retreat, close enough to visit the Temple of the Tooth, yet still enclosed in a lush forest. Next, you will board a Vintage local train and travel how the British used to travel during the Colonial times in the late 1800’s. Witness forests, villages, waterfalls, tea estates and sleepy towns in the hills. Your stay in the tea country will be at Ceylon Tea Trails, a historic and elegantly restored tea planter’s bungalow. Discover the intricate art of making tea and venture on walks and bike rides throughout the lakes and mountains. Next is your safari at Wild Coast Tented Lodge in Yala National Park, offering cocoon-like suites scattered in a beachfront jungle wilderness. Spend your days on game drives and other wilderness activities in the park where expert guides will seek out leopards, elephants, sloth bears, crocodiles, and more. Conclude this unforgettable trip at the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, one of the Maldives’ leading luxury hotels situated in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Bask in the views, dine on top-class cuisine, embark on a host of fun-filled beach and ocean activities, and luxuriate in the world-class spa.
