Sri Lanka and The Maldives Holiday

This amazing holiday sees you visit the very best of Sri Lanka on a boutique tour, before heading to the Maldives for true relaxation, luxury, and indulgence.

Sri Lanka is the emerald isle of the Indian Ocean and is bursting with diverse landscapes and marvels to be explored. Enjoy the rolling hills of the tea plantations, the diverse wildlife including leopards in Yala National Park or the largest gathering of Asian elephants at Minneriya National Park and a mixture of religions and cultures in places such as Kandy and Dambulla. The city of Colombo is becoming an ever-growing social hub, with a great selection of luxury hotels, boutiques and shopping centres - as well as local markets to pick up authentically hand-made crafts to take home.

To see as much of these stunning and fascinating locations in one memorable trip - we recommend touring Sri Lanka. A trip we highly recommend is our Splendours of Sri Lanka Boutique tour this is the perfect way to experience all of Sri Lanka's 'best bits' whilst staying in unique and boutique properties, showcasing their authenticity before a short hop over to the geographical wonder - the Maldives for a well-earned beach break. The best view is from the air and well worth a seaplane trip across the crystal clear waters - see these dotted island atolls from the air to take you to your hotel resort. Spot pods of dolphins and some of the best snorkelling and dive sites in the world.
