Luxury tent accommodation awaits at the captivating Dolphin Beach Hotel Kalpitiya. Escape to a private stretch of beach in Sri Lanka’s vibrant northwest and ease into your honeymoon among gently swaying palm trees. This eco-friendly resort is a two-hour drive from the airport, providing exquisite seclusion and indulgent amenities, though the on-site tour desk can help you explore more of the island with excursions to places such as Kalpitiya Dutch Fort and Wilpattu National Park.
As afternoon approaches, call in at the onsite spa for Ayurvedic treatments. Afterwards, dive into the glittering infinity pool for a few refreshing laps. Take time to recline beneath clear blue skies with your special someone and perhaps enjoy a fruit-laden cocktail or two, then settle in at the open-air restaurant as the sun sets for a gastronomic feast for two.
