Luxury Family Travel to Sri Lanka

Inspired Luxury travel to Sri Lanka, designed for your family

Wildlife, temples, beaches and culture

It might be small compared to its neigbour that towers to the north, but Sri Lanka is a wonderfully diverse and fascinating country. Packed full of ancient ruins, hilltop temples, sandy beaches and national parks home to herds of elephants, it has everything you need for the perfect family getaway.

The Cultural Triangle, marked by the three points of Kandy, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa is a culturally rich area home to ruined cities, fortresses, and temples and monuments that can be explored by bike. Children will love entering the palace complex of Sigiriya through a pair of enormous lion’s feet amd exploring the extraordinary caves of Dambulla.

Go in search of wildlife in Yala and Gal Oya National Parks, enjoying a safari through the parks, eyes on stalks as you look out for calfs splashing in the watering holes and monkeys swinging between the trees. And of course, no trip to Sri Lanka would be complete without some time relaxing as a family on the beautiful coast.

Whatever you want from your Indian subcontinent tour, our team of expert travel designers are ready to help.

When to go

Sri Lanka’s tropical climate generally offers warmth and sunshine throughout the year. Temperatures average between 27-30 °C in Colombo and on the coasts, peaking in April. In the hill country, they are around 10°C cooler. The east coast is best visited between March and September, whilst the south coast is at its peak between November and March. The north and east of the island represent the dry zone, while the western slopes of the central highlands are wettest.

Sri Lanka lies 400 miles north of the equator and is affected by two monsoon seasons caused by the winds originating from the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. The sout west monsoon (Yala) originates from the Indian Ocean and brings most rain to Colombo and the south and west coasts during May and June. The north east monsoon (Maha) brings rain from the Bay of Bengal and affects the far north and east between December and February. In this dry zone, the monsoon makes up the vast majority of its rain for the year.

Two of my favourite memories are a very emotional moment when I first saw the Taj Mahal in India and watching the sun rise over Mount Merepi from the top of the Borobudur temple in Java, which was a truly magical moment.

My passion for Asia was first ignited when I spent a year teaching English in South Korea. I found both the culture fascinating and the food phenomenal.
