OVERVIEW

If a honeymoon bursting with culture and adventure is what you and your partner have always imagined then look no further than Sri Lanka. Your Sri Lanka honeymoon will be an adventure as you visit beautiful temples, ride elephants at Chaaya Village or visit the elephant orphanage and taste a variety of delicious teas at one of the tea plantations.

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. We love Jetwing Beach for the start of your Sri Lanka honeymoon where you can relax and soak up the beautiful setting after your wedding.

Don’t miss out on a visit to the game reserve in the south east corner of the island, home to a variety of animals including elephant, leopard, wild boar and a huge range of birds. If you’re feeling energetic and are looking for a breath taking view of Sri Lanka, we recommend the Sigirya Rock site where you can climb the well-built stairs and soak up a beautiful view.

Looking for a destination to twin with Sri Lanka? The Maldives and Sri Lanka make a great multi centre honeymoon package as you explore the different regions and soak up the culture in Sri Lanka before enjoying an island beach honeymoon in the Maldives. Check out our sample itinerary for your Sri Lanka and Maldives twin centre honeymoon.
