10 days exploring Sri Lanka from Colombo and beyond

Cape Weligama Sri Lanka

10 days exploring Sri Lanka from Colombo and beyond | Sri Lanka | I have just returned from a 10 days trip to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. Such a magical experience. But most importantly, given the latest tragic events, myself and my two clients – traveling along with me – we felt totally safe. Sri Lankan’s are such warm, welcoming and friendly people – a true feeling of a predominantly Buddhist Country.

Ceylon Tea Trails

ITINERARY & HOTELS
During my 10 days, we moved by private land transportation. I explored Hatton and the Tea Plantations with a stay at the breathtaking Ceylon Tea Trails. From there I move on to YALA National Park with stay at Wild Coast Tented Lodge. While in Yala we did a Safari searching for Leopards, Elephants and lots of monkeys. From there we moved to the beach district of Cape Weligama with stay at Cape Weligama Resort – here was total relax and unwinding. All 3 properties mentioned above, by the Resplendent Hotels Group and under the Relais & Chateaux group. Next destination was Galle and the UNESCO World Heritage Galle Fort. There I stayed at the very charming Galle Fort Hotel, but also spent sometime at the Amangalla by Aman Resorts, both located within the fort walls. From there, before heading back home, I spent 24 hours in Colombo with a stay at the Shangrila Hotel Colombo.
