#1 Anantaya Resort & Spa – Passikudah, Sri Lanka

Your perfect romantic honeymoon: pampering and privacy on the untouched ivory sands of the Passikudah shoreline.

#4 The Grand Hotel - Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

Experience the grandeur of Sri Lanka’s colonial past: an iconic hotel set among spectacular scenery and wildlife.

Situated in the high elms of Nuwara Eliya (known as “Little England” or “Switzerland of the East”), the legendary Grand Hotel is an iconic landmark of Sri Lanka’s colonial past. Visit the nearby Nuwara Eliya Park, Galway Bird Sanctuary and the Hakgala Botanical Gardens or head for a day out at the local tea plantations and admire the myriad waterfalls along the way. A little further afield you will also discover the unique beauty of Horton Plains high up at around 7000ft…The awe-inspiring wonder of ‘World’s End’- a near vertical drop of around 4000 ft…Rare flora and fauna including deer, jackal and the elusive leopard…Sri Lanka’s holy mountain ‘Adam’s Peak’ and its famous shadow at sunrise. There’s also plenty of action for thrill seekers – white water rafting, rock climbing and trekking, and if you prefer it slow, the colonial charms of the town offer much to explore.
