Luxury comfort in Sri Lanka

Luxury comfort in Sri Lanka

per person
6 Nights 7 Days

Sri Lanka has more than 2,550 years of continuous written history by means of the Mahawansha, and was also mentioned in several ancient Indian texts. One of the most famous is the Ramayana, in which the island, which was referred to as Lanka, was the island fortress of king Ravana. And over many centuries Sri Lanka has had many names.

The Aryans arrived in Sri Lanka late in the 6th century BC, probably from northern India and mixed with locals to make a Sinhalese ethnic group. Buddhism was introduced beginning in about the mid-3rd century BC, and a great civilization developed at such cities as Anuradhapura (kingdom from c. 200 BC to c. 1000 AD) and Polonnaruwa (c. 1070 to 1200). Other notable but relatively more recent kingdoms are Dambadeniya, Yapahuwa, Gampola, Kandy and Jaffna Kingdoms.

Partially occupied by the Portuguese in the 16th century and by the Dutch in the 17th century, the coastal parts island was ceded to the British in 1796 and became a British colony in 1802. The entire island was ceded to the British in 1815. As Ceylon, it became independent in 1948; the name was changed to Sri Lanka in 1972. In May 2009 government military forces defeated the Tamil Tigers’ separatist movement and ended a brutal 26 year-long war that began in 1983, thus opening up a new chapter in its history. Since Sri Lanka is a tropical country, you can expect rain any time of the year in different parts of the country. However, the two major rainy seasons are the South-West monsoon (May to July) which predominantly affects the west & south coasts of Sri Lanka and the North-East monsoon (October to January) predominantly affects the east coast. The climate of Sri Lanka changes dramatically from the central highlands to the coastal belt. For example, Nuwara Eliya, in the hills of central Sri Lanka, has a temperature around 5-20°C throughout the year, whereas Hambantota, located in the dry zone, has a temperature consistently around 30-35°C.

Day 04 | Kandy-Nuwara Eliya
Often referred to as ‘Little England’, this genteel highland community does have a rose-tinted, vaguely British-country-village feel to it, with its colonial-era bungalows, Tudor-style hotels, well-tended hedgerows and pretty gardens. Indeed, Nuwara Eliya was once was the favoured cool-climate escape for the hard-working and hard-drinking English and Scottish pioneers of Sri Lanka’s tea industry. A recent construction boom has blighted the scene to a degree, and the dusty and bustling centre is a thoroughly Sri Lankan urban tangle, but Nuwara Eliya still makes a fine base for a few days' relaxations. The verdant surrounding countryside of tea plantations carefully tended vegetable plots and craggy hills is highly scenic. Treat yourself to a night in one of Nuwara Eliya’s colonial hotels, play a round of golf or a few frames of billiards, and soak up the town’s unique bygone heritage. OVERNIGHT STAY IN “NUWARA ELIYA”
