Sri Lanka Retreats

Sri Lanka offers the perfect blend of culture, nature, tranquility and beauty for families, groups and couples alike. Ancient world heritage sites, stunning scenery and nature reserves where an abundance of elephants, crocodiles, sloth bears and leopards wander freely, await those visiting Sri Lanka.

With cloud-covered mountains, rolling tea plantations and lush jungles, Sri Lanka is an explorer’s dream destination. Yet the stretches of unspoiled, white-sand beaches and luxury spa resorts offer up the perfect retreat for those looking to unwind and simply skip a beat.

Foodies will have their taste buds tantalized with local cuisine... authentic, full of flavour, plentiful and with a level of heat we personally love. Be prepared to dine like royalty!

When to Visit Sri Lanka

As with other Indian Ocean countries, Sri Lanka enjoys average temperatures of 25-30°C throughout the year, making it a great year-round holiday destination.

The peak season runs from December to mid-April. This is when the south and west coasts of Sri Lanka benefit from drier weather, whereas the northern regions and east coast are impacted by monsoon. 

Contrastingly, if you’re visiting Sri Lanka between May and October, it’s better to stay on the east coast and northern regions of the island for drier, sunnier weather, as this is when the south-west monsoon brings rain to the southern and western regions of the island.

Getting to Sri Lanka

Flights from the UK to Sri Lanka arrive at Bandaranaike International Airport, often referred to as Colombo International Airport as it's located to the north of Colombo. From there, we’ll arrange a private transfer to take you to your resort by road or we’ll organise an onward connecting flight to other domestic airports, depending on what works best for your itinerary.

Direct flights are available from London Heathrow to Colombo International Airport with a duration of approximately 10 hours. However flights from other UK airports typically include stopovers. Speak to your retreat designer about turning a stopover into a short stay of its own, to make your trip to Sri Lanka, part of an exciting multi-centre itinerary.
