Why Sri Lanka is great for groups
Hugely diverse so there are endless options for guests with varying interests.
Wildlife and variety
Within a mere area of 65,610 kilometres lie 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 1,330 kilometres of coastline, 15 National Parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife, nearly 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 250 acres of botanical gardens, 350 waterfalls and 25,000 water bodies. However, it is not just the natural beauty of the country that makes it such a wonderful place to go as a group.
Private Guiding and Experiences
We hand pick all our guides having experienced them first hand ourselves. They will escort you on your journey traversing Sri Lanka in your private air-conditioned car or small coach, with a wifi device. Drive times tend to be no longer than 4 hours depending on the route you have chosen. We will advise you on the most suitable and time efficient ways to navigate Sri Lanka. Your guide will personally escort you from one hotel to the next, sharing stories and ensure you have a comfortable and safe ride, stopping for quiet lunches where required.
Sri Lanka has something for all ages. Firstly, there are excellent villa's on the coast. These are reasonably priced, staffed with exceptional chef's, large pools and beach access. Yala National Park can be enjoyed by groups, spotting leopards in private vehicles, ending with banquet dinners in the evenings.

The varied highlights of Sri Lanka
A country of astounding diversity
Galle and the South Coast
The south coast of Sri Lanka is made up of coral-protected bays, tropical sandy beaches and rural fishing villages. The mixture of unspoilt wilderness and a colourful cultural heritage make the southern coast an ideal place to escape the bustle of the larger cities. Enjoy surfing or whale watching in Mirissa, scuba diving in Dickwella and even a Turtle Night Safari in Rekura.
Sri Lanka’s West Coast
Sri Lanka's west coast covers the coastal strip just south of Colombo all the way down to Hikkaduwa. The main attraction of this side of the island, apart from the string of small towns such as Kalutara, Bentota, Ahungalla and Hikkaduwa, are the tropical beaches and lagoons lined with mangroves. The west coast also offers guests a vibrant cultural heritage including folklore, music and dance as well as architectural influences from the Dutch period. Many temples, kovils, churches and mosques are situated along the coast, and cottage industries such as basket-weaving, mask-carving and antique restoration provide for interesting shopping.
Sri Lanka's East Coast
Sri Lanka’s East Coast is largely undeveloped. It’s rustic, unspoilt and offers great activities from surfing, sailing and swimming. Whilst it’s wet on the West Coast in our summer months, the East Coast offer’s prolonged sunshine. The capital is Trincomalee and down the coast, you will find parm fringed beaches, such as Passekudah which is arguably one of Sri Lanka's most scenic spots.
Sri Lanka is the 4th largest producer of tea worldwide and the tea drinking culture on the island remains strong. The abundant rainfall combined with Sri Lanka's year-round sunshine offer the perfect climate for producing world famous tea.
The Cultural Triangle
The Cultural Triangle is found on Sri Lanka's central plains and encompasses the cities and towns of Kandy, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya, and Dambulla. It is here that Sri Lanka’s Kings developed remarkably advanced civilisations and where visitors are provided with a glimpse into the island's history dating back to the 4th Century BC.
