Trip Report Captivated By Beautiful Sri Lanka.

Jump to last reply

When we first considered visiting Sri Lanka, our intention was just to find a cheapy package holiday and spend some relaxing time in the sunshine at a beach resort. But it very soon became clear that this country had so much to offer so we set about planning a tour for our twelve day stay.
Firstly we booked our flights. Jet Airways provided the best deal so we went with them. Outward to Colombo via Mumbai and returning via Delhi. All round very good service from Jet and we will not hesitate to use them again.
After much researching and investigating we ended up with a plan to stay at Habarana, Kandy, Nuwara Ellya, Galle and finally Colombo.
For Habarana we booked the Cinnamon Lodge, for Kandy the Ammaya Hills, for Nuwara Ellya the Heritage Tea Factory, for Galle the Jetwing Lighthouse and for Colombo the Galle Face Hotel. All the hotels were booked through Agoda.
Our next job was to work out how to get around. At this point a huge thanks goes to Craig for his great report on his and Jeans’ Sri Lanka trip and in particular for his recommendations for tour director Rammuni. We researched other opinions about this guy and could only find high praise. So after contacting him and agreeing a price for his services for twelve days, we booked him.

Then the terrible flooding hit Sri Lanka in January then again in February. We were rather nervous about what we would find and whether we would be able to visit all of the places we had planned especially as the FCO was advising against travelling to some of our proposed areas. Nevertheless, on February 11th, we set off from Heathrow with the wonderful anticipation of visiting a new country. The adventure begins………
