Beach life in Bentota and Ahungalla

Looking for a luxury Sri Lankan beach resort? Try tucked-away Bentota. Deluxe hotels spot the coast, which comes with a hefty sandy beach. Or there’s always Ahungalla — a town which really minds its Ps & Qs. The Riu Sri Lanka hotel is a good bet here, serving up sea-view rooms as standard. It's also a family favourite, thanks to its line-up of activities.

City nights in Negombo and Colombo

Most travellers land in the airport outside of Negombo and zip straight to their beach resorts. But it’s definitely worth doubling back for a day trip. Top-rated restaurants serve dishes from India, China and America, while colonial churches and a canal decorate the streets. It’s also the launch pad for loads of excursions — including rail trips that travel to capital city Colombo.

Flights, hotels, resort transfers, meals and drinks — we include them all on a luxury holiday to Sri Lanka. And they’re all finished off with a five-star buff.
