It is coming to that time of year again when much like migrating birds, you plan to escape the harsh winter in search of more sunnier climes! If your idea of a perfect vacation includes spending hours of fun in the sun, lazing about the beach and even embarking on a thrilling wildlife safari then definitely consider an island getaway like Sri Lanka. The island may be relatively small, but it is packed with adventures with something new to discover on every visit. An ideal option would be to plan to stay at a hotel chain that offers resorts in Sri Lankain various key parts of the country from the coast to the central highlands. Theme Resorts & Spas is well worth considering in this regard since it has accommodation options in the East Coast, the Cultural Triangle and the Hill Country.
Beach hopping adventures abound in Sri Lanka and depending on which area you visit you can experience something different. The South Coast is the most famous area and golden sand beaches full of exciting water sports and nightlife are readily available along with activities such as whale and dolphin watching. Also gaining popularity is the West Coast where one can watch magical sunsets, while on the other side, the East Coast gives you a chance to take in enchanting sun rises.
If you are looking for an excursion in the mountains, then a relatively short drive (around three and a half hours) from the commercial capital will bring you to the hill kingdom. Kandy where you will find the famed Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Nuwara Eliya with its traditional colonial charm are ‘must visits’, while nature lovers should plan a trip to the Knuckles Mountain Range where you can enjoy camping in the great outdoors.
Want more adrenaline pumping action? How does a safari to the wild sound, where you will come face to face with leopards! Sri Lanka is one of the best places in the world to spot leopards, at the Yala National Park in particular. At the island’s other parks you will also have the chance to see the iconic Sri Lankan Elephant along with a wide range of wildlife from crocodiles to cuckoos!
