Sri Lanka 14 nights
- September-October -
Overall review: Our honeymoon was an absolute dream! It was the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure, we loved beautiful Sri Lanka and hope we can visit again one day! Invite to Paradise made it so easy for us, we hardly had to do anything!
Hotels: The hotels we stayed in were exceptional and all so unique, it was such an experience staying in so many wonderful places. Our favourites were definitely the resorts in cultural triangle, the tea plantations and Galle..the settings were amazing. Each hotel knew we were on our honeymoon so we were usually greeted with gifts of fruit or cake which was so special. The staff at each hotel went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and nothing was too much trouble. The only hotel we probably would not return to is the safari resort in Udawalawe, our room was lovely but the pool area needs a bit of TLC, however the staff were still just as lovely!
Chauffeur-Guide: It was a pleasure to be driven by Mohan, he always met us with a big smile and he was very knowledgeable about the island. He would always stop at points of interest and made sure we got to see everything we wanted. We felt very safe with him even with the crazy driving conditions!
“Dear Mohan, We cannot thank you enough for your help and assistance for our honeymoon and first trip to Sri Lanka!
When we first saw you at the airport with your smiley face we knew we were in good handsQ You always made us feel safe and comfortable even on these busy roads and you were always patient stopping for photos and answering our questions! You are so knowledgable and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide!
You were always very punctual and made our trip stress-free which we really appreciate! We’ve very much enjoyed our first time in Sri Lanka and you were a huge part of that. Thank you Mohan, all the best to you and your family.

Excursions: The excursions were amazing! We loved climbing Sigiriya Rock and the elephant safari, we also loved the cooking class we had and have tried some recipes at home! There are so many different things to see and do in Sri Lanka and we're glad we got to experience so many varied excursions.
Best memory of the trip: There are so many to choose from..the views from the train on the way to the tea plantations..being up close in the wild with elephants..relaxing in true paradise in Galle..the list goes on and on!
