An unforgettable city, culture and beach holiday to stunning Sri Lanka before an all-inclusive Emirates cruise – includes all travel and exciting excursions

Strewn with cultural jewels and natural treasures, Sri Lanka is a country to spend a little time over - and with this adventure you'll top off a bucket-list tour of cities, temples and more, with an eight-night cruise around the Far East.

You’ll kick things of in the coastal city of Negombo with an overnight stay at Arie Lagoon, before hot footing it to Sigiriya, bedding down at Hotel Sigiriya for two nights. After a visit to Dambulla Cave Temple, ascend the impressive UNESCO Sigiriya Rock Fortress, witnessing its iconic frescoes, before taking a thrilling elephant safari by Jeep through Minneriya National Park. You’ll also have the chance to visit Medirigiriya Vatadaageya in the medieval capital, Polonnaruwa.

Earl’s Regent Hotel is just a 15-minute drive to the city of Kandy. The city is one steeped in history, owing to its status as Sri Lanka’s capital during the time of the kings. While you'll find no shortage of things to do here, make sure to visit one of the city's most popular cultural landmarks, Degaldoruwa Raja Maha Vihara. This ancient Buddhist rock temple is famous for its beautiful frescoes and its unusual construction within a man-made cave in a large rock. Other must-see attractions include the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Buddhism’s most revered temples. Within the city, you'll also find the Tranquil Kandy lake.

Up next, you’ll visit the luscious Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, all before heading to the verdant surrounds of Nuwara Eliya, nicknamed Little England, where you’ll get the chance to witness a traditional tea plantation and tea factory. Before winding your Sri Lanka tour down in Colombo, climb aboard a traditional train for a thrilling ride from Kandy to Rambukkana.

Take a water taxi to visit Dubai's Old Town nearby and dive headfirst into the enticing aromas of the Spice Market before marvelling at the Gold Souk. After a day of serious bank balance-bruising in the city's sprawling malls, return to your hotel to relax in Zaitoon Spa or go all hooray-Henry British over drinks at the Sherlock Holmes pub.

Boarding the luxe MSC Bellissima cruise ship, you'll enjoy an all-inclusive trip from the dazzling skyscapes of Dubai to a world of sun-kissed white-sand beaches in Abu Dhabi and Yas Island. From the UAE, you’ll sail onwards to Oman’s jaw-dropping capital city of Muscat on the glittering Gulf, before heading the pretty port city of Khasab. You’ll end the cruise back in Dubai, where you'll be transferred to the airport for your return flight home.

Alongside two swimming pools, a gym and three blissful spa treatments rooms, you'll find plenty of dining and drinking options. Savour Sri Lankan cuisine at Banana Prawn Restaurant, enjoy fresh seafood and drinks from a swim-up bar at Crab Claw Bar & Restaurant and head to Kalapuwa Wine Lounge for a glass (or few) of wine.

Hotel Sigiriya (two nights)

Earl’s Regent Hotel, Kandy (two nights)


Earl’s Regent sits just minutes away from the bustling city of Kandy, hidden amidst the region’s mountains and swathes of thick jungle. You’ll have a choice between two restaurants – the main buffet-style restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed against the backdrop of the mountains that overlook the resort, and an a la carte eatery where grilled steaks, seafood and burgers are cooked in the restaurant's Argentinean-style parilla char grill. Elsewhere you’ll find a spa where you can unwind with a variety of massages along with other beauty and wellness treatments. The hotel has recently clinched a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice award for 2018.

Zmax Fairway Colombo (one night)


In keeping with its location at the heart of Sri Lanka’s business capital, just 750 yards from the Khan Clock Tower, the four-star Fairway Colombo is a vibrant hotel with a flair for modern design and the latest technology. You’ll also find artwork by Anoma Wijewardene, one of Sri Lanka’s most acclaimed artists and a collaborator with Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Yves Saint Laurent, brightening up the walls. Whether you’re early to bed or early to rise, there’s also a 24-hour coffee shop, onsite gym and a rooftop bar and bistro to top things off nicely.

Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, Dubai, UAE (one night)


Ideally located in Bur Dubai, you're right opposite Dubai Museum and moments from the city's best shopping attractions at this luxury base. Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa is decorated throughout, with a traditional Arabic aesthetic in mind.

There are a plethora of eating and drinking options to try out, like fiery Indian cooking at Mumtaz Mahal and Chinese delights at Chinese Dynasty Restaurant. The 24-hour Ahlan Lounge serves light meals, juices and hot drinks and the Sherlock Holmes Pub is a throwback to 19th-century London.

Deluxe rooms are spacious and Arabian-inspired, with ornate rugs and dark wooden furniture, and you can enjoy views over Dubai Museum, located in the historic Al Fahidi Fort. The hotel scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
