Wandering around the ramparts of the fortified town of Galle and ending up at either the Amangalla or the Lighthouse for a stiff G&T with a view….

Sri Lanka’s idyllic combination of culture, beaches and nature makes for a perfect luxury honeymoon destination; think crumbling ancient cities, seemingly endless coastline and wild, untamed jungle.
To only do a fly and flop here would be to somewhat miss the point of Sri Lanka; it's all about getting back to nature and exploring this tiny gem of a country's ethereal beauty, steeped in Kipling-esque romance and mystery.
The Cultural Triangle and tea plantations in Sri Lanka's heartland are home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites and give a fascinating glimpse into the rich cultural heritage. Afternoon tea on one of the plantations, complete with cucumber sandwiches and a selection of teas (or a G&T if you're feeling the need) is colonial bliss.
Sri Lanka's national parks are home to some of the planet's most magnificent wildlife and would-be David Attenboroughs will revel in the opportunity of seeing leopard, elephant and bears in the wild. The jungle safari camps are also second to none, with a small army of staff on hand to ensure your experience is a magical one.
Speaking of accommodation, the selection of small, intimate
boutique hotels throughout Sri Lanka is perfect for honeymooners.

private pool listening to the birds sing in the surrounding forest.
Heaven. The tropical jungle of the heartland gives way to a
rugged coastline in the south with palm-fringed
beaches and turquoise seas; perfect for some serious relaxation to
finish off your Sri Lankan honeymoon.
