An extraordinary private tour of Sri Lanka, taking in some of the country’s most breathtaking cultural and natural highlights, followed by utter relaxation on a Maldivian island

Positioned just off the southern coast of India, the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka is a paradise of emerald green rainforest and sugary sands. This kaleidoscopic destination boasts some of the wildest, most exotic scenery in the Indian Ocean, with elephants, sloths and leopards all residents of the island. Pack in the country’s best bits with this escape, before blissing out at a stellar Maldives retreat.

You’ll uncover the ruins of the one-time capital of Sri Lanka, Polonnaruwa, and stand in awe of staggering Sigiriya rock fortress. Explore a typical village with a guide for an insight into local life and have your senses stirred at the sublime Matale spice garden. Travel to the cultural treasure trove of Kandy, taking in the glorious Royal Botanical Gardens and the sacred Temple of the Tooth relic, as well as a traditional evening show.

A scenic overnight stay in Nuwara Eliya is next up on your agenda. Dubbed the “Little England of Sri Lanka”, you’ll be staying amidst the luscious tea country, surrounded by rolling emerald-green hills. Trek in the glorious Horton plains before the sun’s too high in the sky and make your way to Ella - a similarly serene and green destination on the way to the extraordinary Udawalawe National Park. On the edge of this renowned reserve, you’ll sleep under canvas at a safari camp, and set off at dusk for an evening Jeep drive to observe the many wild elephants that roam the grasslands.

After spending the final night of your tour in Colombo, you’ll be met with white sand and crystal-clear water in one of the most beautiful regions on earth. Reethi Beach means "beautiful" in the local language, and it won’t take long to see why in this remote Baa Atoll location. Whether right out on the beach or on the private terrace of your traditional Maldivian-style villa, stunning scenery is in ready supply here. There are also five restaurants and five bars offering al fresco dining and cooking demonstrations, plus a PADI five-star dive centre and a beachfront spa with an extensive treatment menu to help tailor your time in paradise.
