As one of the most romantic destinations in the world – Sri Lanka has too many honeymoon locations to easily fit into one itinerary. At Experience Travel we would always look to talk in detail about your trip and ensure that what we put together is right for the both of you. After all, we would want this holiday to set the tone for your future family holidays with us!
Not all of these places are right for everyone, and nor could they all be squashed easily into one holiday. However, here are my top 5 Sri Lanka honeymoon locations in no particular order: 1: A luxury camping safari in Yala National Park. It doesn’t get too much better than this – sipping a cocktail by the side of a lake after a long days safari drive – spotting elephants, leopards, all manner of water birds and much more. Early to bed, wake with the dawn and then off again on safari before returning to your own fantastic jungle breakfast!
2: The Mudhouse, Anamaduwa. I’m biased I admit – I was there at the inception of the Mudhouse and my wife and I stayed very soon after our own wedding in Sri Lanka in 2004 – just before we returned to live in the UK. Still, The Guardian Newspaper can’t be biased and they named it one of the 100 most romantic destinations in the world! So far from the cares and stresses of everyday life – The Mudhouse beats to the rhythm of a slower drum. 3: The Tea Trails, Hatton. Re-creating the nostalgia the colonial planters felt for the homeland in a fairly nostalgic way is an interesting starting point for a hotel – but one that works absolutely. Simply wonderful and the staff will include a magnificent picnic lunch at a nearby viewpoint and set it all up for you to enjoy together and alone with the view. Wonderful.

Your own private space in which no one will come unless invited? Gorgeous infinity pol? Magnificent food cooked to order by your chef? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then get in touch and we will make sure we include Lansiya in your honeymoon in Sri Lanka. (see also The Teak House, Tangalle on the same beach) 5: Amangalla, Galle Amangalla, has all the hallmarks of an Amans property – superlative service, amazing finish and a brilliant location. Located on the site of the old ‘Oriental Hotel’, this building oozes romance and history in the heart of the old Dutch Fort on the seafront in Galle. There is so much to see and do here and a blissful escape from it all too.
