Honeymoon Sri Lanka - 11 Nights and 12 Days tour

Whether you are on your honeymoon or looking for a rendezvous to rekindle the love, this journey will bring you closer as you step foot together on the soils of Ceylon. Fall in love with the beaches of Negombo in a night, then experience the heart of the cultural triangle, after which stay in the more modern city of Kandy, before giving into the temptation of Nuwaraeliya tea plantations and the soft sands of Hikkaduwa. Our specially designed Sri Lanka honeymoon package takes couples to some of the most romantic destinations on the island.

Day 1

At the airport, you will be greeted by your chauffeur from Sri Lanka Travel Tours, who will take you to the modern beach town of Negombo. Once in the comforts of your hotel, relax and recover from any jet lag. 

If you have spare time, your chauffeur will introduce you to some of Negombo’s curious sites, such as the Dutch churches; perhaps take a boat ride along the Dutch canals; or laze on the golden sands.

Enjoy your stay at the hotel overlooking the lagoon or sea.  

Day 2

Set off from coastal Negombo to experience the inland delights of Sri Lanka.

Your journey will take you along a picturesque route, passing rice paddy fields, to the town of Kurunegala. Look out for the towering Lord Buddha statue upon a rock, which from afar is the town’s landmark!

To begin, drop by the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage to get your first introduction to Sri Lanka’s most infamous inhabitants. Here, you can watch these giant animals up close as they feed and bathe in the shimmering waters of the Ma Oya River. After lunch, continue to the town of Sigiriya, within the country’s rich cultural triangle. Late afternoon, mount the mesmerizing rock fortress of Sigiriya, a 5th-century “Fortress in the Sky.” 

Day: 3

Today, learn about the better-kept ruins of ancient Ceylon—the UNESCO World Heritage City of Polonnaruwa, which was a medieval capital of Sri Lanka from the 11th to the 13th centuries A.D. Take a walking tour of one of the ruins of ancient Ceylon, which includes a visit to Lankathilaka, Thuparamaya, the Royal Palace, Rankoth Vehera, and Gal Viharaya.

On your return, take an exhilarating jeep safari with the company of an expert naturalist guide to Minneriya or neighboring Kavdullah National Park. The Vast Sanctuary is home to about 250 wild elephants, buffaloes, sambar deer, crocodiles, sloth bears, and more.

In the evening, perhaps you can surprise your partner with dinner atop a tree house or alfresco dining under the rustling canopies of a secluded hill. Aurveda spa treatments in Sri Lanka are highly recommended. 

Day: 4

Today you will arrive in the hill capital of Kandy, surrounded by greenery and the great Mahaweli River. Eminent as the center of Buddhism and the capital of the last Sinhalese kingdom, the name Kandy evokes romantic notions in people of a lost hill kingdom, a lake, and a famous temple.

At your convenience, become acquainted with the city and pay your respects to the golden-roofed Temple of the Tooth Relic, which houses Sri Lanka’s most sacred relic, a tooth of the Lord Buddha. Admire the delicate hill-country breezes that urge the mist to gently part, revealing colorful houses amid Kandy’s forested halo. Visit the lively market places and the Upper Lake Drive. To step up the tempo, attend a dance performance featuring traditional dances from the different regions of Sri Lanka.

Day: 5

Spend a lazy day at the hotel. We suggest dipping in the pool. If you wish, during the day, take a short drive to the lush Royal Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya for an introduction to tropical flora or to take a short hike at the Udawatte Kele Sanctuary, a forest reserve located in the heart of the city. Perhaps you can also surprise your partner with a picnic lunch. 

Day: 6

Welcome to Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka’s tea-growing region! Visit a tea estate and factory to see how Ceylon tea is made.

Afterwards, drive around the town to see the same. 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. Do also indulge in a guided stroll of the town; pass the 18-hole golf course, the colonial members-only Hill Club, and English-styled country homes. 

Day: 7

Hop on board the afternoon train and journey through the tea carpets of Ceylon to Ella. The slow descent through the tea fields and hill country, with its winding tracks and misty panoramas, offers an unmatched perspective and wonderful experience.

Day: 8

Welcome to everyone’s favorite hill-country village and the place to ease off the travel accelerator with a few leisurely days resting in your choice of some of the country’s best guesthouses. The views through Ella Gap are stunning.

Visit the beautiful Rawana waterfalls in the morning. Later, trek to Little Adams Peak and the 9-Arc Bridge. Have an opportunity to unwind at the Rawana Pool Club or the restaurant Caffe Chill.

Day: 9

The beautiful, 1000-year-old, rock-cut Buddha figures of Buduruwagala are the region’s biggest attraction. The gigantic standing Buddha here still bears traces of its original stone robe, and a long streak of orange suggests it was once brightly painted.

Drive southward toward the southern coast of the island to Galle. Galle is the country’s oldest living city and is sure to capture your interest with its historic sites and its unique fusion of European and Arabic cultural and architectural influences. In the afternoon, explore the Galle Fort with its low-lined streets and history behind its rampart. The Fort remains a hive of activity and is one of the few World Heritage-listed sites in which a bustling population continues to thrive. Walk through the alleys lined with stores and restaurants. After you have explored the city, you could proceed to do some shopping in the very heart of Galle. You will come across shops with a fine variety of gems and jewelry, antiques, art galleries, and design stores.

Day: 10 and 11

You may also take a tranquil boat trip down the stunning Madu River, a wetland inlet covering 900 hectares, if you want to venture outside. Travel through vast mangrove forests, float through tunnels in the forest’s canopy, and observe the region’s extraordinary biodiversity, which is home to hundreds of different species of fish, plants, and animals. The excitement of water sports on the Bentota Lagoon is a must for the more daring!

Enjoy a leisurely day beside the tranquil ocean. 

Day: 12

As all good things must come to an end, we bid you farewell as our chauffeur transfers you to the airport to meet your departure flight home.
