Brides magazine in the US says that “a Sri Lankan honeymoon guarantees an epic journey because nowhere else in the world can you experience such a wide array of cultures and experiences in one compact destination”.
Writer Katie James reports that our paradise Pearl of the Indian Ocean tropical island “has been the subject of much buzz in recent years, quickly becoming one of the world’s most up-and-coming destinations”.
“Everywhere you go leads to discovery: ancient temples in the Cultural Triangle, artist havens in Kandy, tea plantations in Ceylon, palm-lined beaches in Tangalle, colonial-era buildings in Galle, leopards on safari in Yala National Park, and metropolitan grandeur in Colombo.
“Couples can spend anywhere from 10 days to two weeks exploring all this island nation has to offer, but most of today’s honeymooners pair a Sri Lankan itinerary with a stay in the Maldives, the Indian Ocean archipelago famed for its luxe private-island resorts.”
Katie is particularly enamored with the Wallawwa “set in a 200 year-old manor home, once owned by the commander of the British Royal Air Force, the has been expertly restored and converted into an intimate boutique hotel.
“Waking up in your room’s airy four-poster bed, surrounded by perfectly manicured tropical gardens, will immediately get you in a peaceful Sri Lankan state of mind—as will the alfresco breakfast and dip in the gorgeous outdoor pool.”
