Doha and Sri Lanka Multi Centre

From the pearl of the Middle East to emerald isle of the Indian Ocean

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Doha holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Qatar's capital Doha is becoming increasingly popular as a stop over city. Doha has all that you expect from an Arabian city, from wandering the cobbled streets of the Souq Waqif to the gleaming city skyscrapers in the evening. After your stop in Doha head to Sri Lanka, and continue a journey of culture, heritage and wildlife. Enjoy a couple of nights on the golden sandy beaches before heading off for your guided private tour to Kandy the cultural capital, Nuwara Eliya's green hills and tea plantations and then back to the beach for rest and relaxation. A Doha - Sri Lanka combination ticks all of the boxes for a city, cultural and beach stay, if you're looking for luxurious and awe-inspiring holiday then look no further. For this multicentre we have incorporated the cultural Kandy and tea tour, in our opinion it's a great mix of culture and wildlife. 

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Luxury hotels in Qatar
  • Souq Waqif shopping in Doha
  • Enjoy the company of a guide in Sri Lanka to learn about the countries culture
  • Temple discovery in Kandy
  • Relaxing days on beach

You'll fly into Colombo and be whisked 90km down to the beach resort of Bentota for a couple of nights of relaxation, where you can choose to take on exhilarating watersports, pamper yourself with traditional Sri Lanka spa experiences or simply laze by the water with a good book and a cocktail.

Wake up feeling refreshed and ready to explore the cultural capital. Your guide will take you to the famous Temple of the Tooth, the local markets and the arts and crafts and gem museums. In the afternoon head over to Peradeniya Botanical Gardens for a leisure stroll, before enjoying a Sri Lanka cultural show in the evening.

The town is known as "Little England" where quintessentially English traditions have stayed in the town since the tea plantations were opened. You'll visit a tea plantation in the morning to learn about the manufacturing process before tasting a cup or two. The afternoon is yours to explore.
