Sri Lanka is a beautiful island located in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Picking this country as your honeymoon destination will mean that your trip will include unique and amazing experiences, a romantic getaway and locations that seem too beautiful to be true. Here are just five reasons why Sri Lanka is your perfect honeymoon destination.
As Sri Lanka is an island it is abundant with beautiful beaches that will definitely make your honeymoon memorable. You could work on your tan, plunge into the sea for a swim, experience scuba diving or go for a walk on the warm sandy shores with the waves lapping at your feet. There is nothing more romantic than sitting next to your partner, witnessing the sky change colours at sunset with a drink in your hand.
The Central Highlands
One of the best features about Sri Lanka is that it has got it all. If you are not too keen on spending your entire honeymoon on the beach, travel inland to the mountainous region of the island. If you and your partner love going on hikes, Sri Lanka has some impressive mountains that could provide an amazing hiking experience. If your preference is to relax and spend time indoors with your significant other, there are many luxury resorts located in the mountainous regions with picturesque views that could make your honeymoon perfect.
Esteemed Resort Experience
Sri Lanka is home to some of the best resorts in the world. One in particular that stands out is Santani Resort and Spa. Located in the stunning mountainous regions, this wellness resort is the perfect spot to take a break from the noise of the city and relax and rejuvenate yourself. The yoga treatments, spa and massages offered by Santani could be exactly what your body needs. Santani has many wellness packages that are personalized according to each guest to provide a one-of-a-kind experience. Santani is one of the best resorts in Sri Lanka and has been recognized and awarded by TIME, VOGUE, and FORBES and recently by Travel + Leisure.
After spending some time in Sri Lanka you will realize that you do not need to go hunting for a perfect spot to take the Instagram worthy picture with your spouse. The beautiful locations are all around you. This small island is brimming with natural and cultural beauty that can be captured quite well on camera. The many religious and cultural sites across the island, natural wonders such as Sigiriya, the views you will come across your hiking trips and even the everyday moments like travelling by tuk-tuk, not only give you amazing pictures but also experiences that are unforgettable
If you and/or your partner are foodies, Sri Lanka offers mouthwatering cuisines that you will definitely fall in love with. There are many fine-dining restaurants offering gourmet cuisine that will keep you wanting more. The local cuisine is so diverse that each day will present you with new culinary experiences. The meals may be very different to what you are used to, but they are incredibly flavorful and the portions are generous. But do not fear, if you worry about the food not agreeing with you or you crave a dish from home, you do not have to look far for it. But if you are willing to experience a new dish, we do recommend the Koththu Rotti, which is a dish that is much loved by Sri Lankans and is unique to this culture.
So if you are looking forward to a honeymoon that has the perfect combination of comfort and new experiences, relaxation and adventure then Sri Lanka is definitely the ideal destination for you!
