Sri Lanka is a hot spot for destination weddings and is one of the most popular locations for weddings abroad due to its beautiful setting, great value wedding packages and only minor legalities involved, ensuring your Sri Lanka wedding will be stress free.

Spend your Sri Lanka honeymoon visiting Yala national park and the Dambulla Rock Temple, relaxing on the beach in Negombo, or get lost in the endless tea plantations in Nuwara Eliya. The tropical climate ensures warm temperatures year round, making Sri Lanka an ideal honeymoon destination.

For lovers of culture and discovery, Sri Lanka really does have it all for your dream honeymoon where you will have your own private driver taking you around Sri Lanka, stopping in beautiful lodges and hotels throughout.
