The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Secluded Indian Ocean beaches, the UNESCO-protected Galle Fort and the untouched wilderness of the south coast combine with the world-renowned luxury of Aman Resorts hotels to ensure a memorable experience. We have included Air Taxi transfers to minimise tiresome road travel.
Arrive in Colombo’s international airport and transfer to the historic city of Galle via Air Taxi. You will stay the next three nights at the luxurious Amangalla. Lying within the walls of Galle’s 17th century Dutch Fort – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amangalla offers a wonderful escape for those wanting the highest possible luxury in intimate, interesting and historic surroundings. Galle Fort is a melting pot of cultural influences. Explore the Fort with its narrow streets, well preserved ramparts, the lighthouse, the Dutch Reform Church, and several houses with the typical manor house style architecture with columns, courtyards, and verandas. The thick, high ramparts that protect and distinguish the Fort are today used for romantic evening strolls and convenient viewpoints to catch international games held in the adjacent Galle cricket stadium. Explore boutique shops and hotels, visit art galleries and museums, or just wander around the Fort’s sturdy ramparts and soak up the special atmosphere of a living walled city.
Journey along the spectacular southern coast of Sri Lanka to Amanwella, a secluded and luxurious beach resort. Amanwella is an ideal base for exploring the southern beaches, cultural heritage and natural wildlife. Visit the tranquil town of Tissamaharama, dominated by lakes and gigantic semi-circle shaped Buddhist temples or Kataragama, surrounded by mountains and perched on the banks of the River of Jewels, a pilgrimage site for Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims and Christians alike. Wildlife lovers can visit Yala National Park, home to the greatest variety of Sri Lanka’s wildlife. Bird lovers will enjoy Bundala wetlands and for a taste of rainforest, travel inland to the majestic Sinharaja Rainforest, another World Heritage Site.
Hop on board an Air Taxi and transfer to the luxurious Wallawwa located just 15 minutes from Colombo’s international airport, for your final night’s stay in Sri Lanka. Relax and immerse yourself in a pampering massage at the Z Spa and relaxing in the beautiful hotel gardens. If you are feeling energetic, explore the coastal town of Negombo with its colonial architectural heritage, catamarans with their billowing sales and fishing villages.
