Sri Lanka is a fantastic destination all year round, I’d recommend visiting the South West Coast region between October – April and the East Coast from May – September. Sri Lanka offers amazing culture, history, nature, wildlife, cuisine and beaches!
Stay at the Geoffrey Bawa properties spread throughout Sri Lanka to get a unique experience which combines the islands architectural heritage with natural landscapes - Heritance Kandalama, Kandy House, Lighthouse Hotel, The Villa Bentota , Lunuganga just to name a few. The 98 Acres Resort in Nuwara Eliya is another hidden gem surrounded by a tea estate up in the hillside.
There are so many things to see and do while in Sri Lanka, a few top picks include: Sigiriya Rock Fortress, Anuradhapura Ancient Capital, Sacred Tooth Relic a Buddhist temple in Kandy, tea plucking and blending in Nuwara Eliya, Yala National Park and a river safari in Bentota.
You can’t go past delicious, local Sri Lankan cuisine! Ministry of Crab at the Dutch Hospital shopping precinct in Colombo is well-known for seafood - make sure you try a fish curry. Kottu, isso vadai and hoppers are popular street eats and traditional samosas, fish rolls and vegetable roti will have your taste buds tingling.
