Sri Lanka 9 nights & Maldives 5 nights
January / February 2015
We had an amazing couple of weeks. Moving around made the holiday feel longer and it was great to have the variety of activities and relaxing days. The people were all so lovely and the whole process was really smooth, we had no issue with check ins etc.
The tea plantation hotel was fantastic, the room was great and the views over the mountains were stunning.
Yala was great, we loved the stilted bungalows as we got a private balcony and great views out to the sea. It was also great for watching the wild boars, stag and monkeys go past! The safari although very busy was very good and we saw two leopards, elephant and python constricting a mongoose right in front of us (the mongoose eventually got itself free after 10mins!).
Galle fort was lovely and the hotel room was amazing with the views on three sides. Probably in hind sight we would have done one night in Mirissa or nearby so we saw another part of the coast and would have been even closer to do the whale trip but I suppose a good reason to go back!
Constance Moofushi in the Maldives was amazing, and it was great to do this at the end of the trip so we had several days to relax and unpack properly! There was so much on offer though so we actually didn't stop...snorkling, trips, wine tasting in the sea, yoga, kayaking! I would definitely recommend this island as the staff, food, activities were all great and having the all inclusive meant we could really relax and not worry about costs etc.
Thank you for all your advice and for arranging the trip. We would recommend you to friends and family. Maybe we will even book another trip in the future! :-)
