3 Nights at Water Garden Sigiriya – Climbing & Elephants
Welcome to the breathtakingly beautiful Water Garden Sigiriya where luxury meets nature surrounded by lakes & water streams.
Explore Sigiriya, the ancient capital of Sri Lanka, built on top of a huge rocky outcrop, the 5th Century Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the ‘Lion Rock’ rising 200m from the scrub jungle and visit the world-renowned frescoes of the ‘Heavenly Maidens’ of Sigiriya. Visit the Minneriya National Park for a private safari to spot deer and wild elephants.
1 Night at Jetwing Kandy Gallery – Culture & City Tour
The hill capital of Sri Lanka, Kandy offers a diverse variety of experiences to its visitors ranging from history, culture and simple scenic beauty coupled with a touch of urbanity. Stay for one night at Jetwing Kandy Gallery, overlooking the Mahaweli River.
The journey to this mellow weathered city is best enjoyed by train with scenic delights that lie alongside. The city’s colonial architecture is well-preserved. Discover the Sri Dalada Maligawa, which houses the sacred tooth relic of Buddha, ancient monuments, the delightful jumble of antique shops and the bustling market in the city.
Leave the city behind and travel onwards to Nuwara Eliya, the ‘Little England of Sri Lanka’ to visit a tea plantation. Lush plantations, the racecourse, the English country house–styled Hill Club and the beautifully kept golf course instantly rushes its visitors back to the colonial era. Board the train to your next destination Ella, for one of the most scenic train journeys in the world. Travel past waterfalls, little villages and up through the mountains.
Stay for 2 nights at the exquisite 98 Acres Resort & Spa (one of Anne’s absolute favourites). Take an early morning walk through lush green tea plantations, waterfalls and paddy fields to Little Adam’s Peak to witness the sunrise. Visit 9 Arch Bridge in Demodara, known locally as ‘Ahas Namaye Palama’ meaning nine skies bridge in Sinhala.
