Sri Lanka Honeymoon Ideas

If you're a tea lover, book a tour at one of Sri Lanka's many tea plantations and drink your way across the island. Visit an elephant sanctuary and take this unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these majestic animals. Stay in a bungalow on Castlereagh Lake and spend your days kayaking, hiking the trails, and relaxing poolside with your newlywed. Enjoy a secluded, candle-lit dinner on the beach while at a luxury resort in Tangalle. Explore the historic city of Galle together and see the Dutch colonial architecture, stylish cafes and world-famous Welligama fishermen for yourself.

Destination Weddings in Sri Lanka

With the abundance of beach properties in Sri Lanka, there's a venue for every type of wedding, size or style. Choose a picturesque golden-sand beach as the background to your dream destination wedding and wow your guests with the affordable luxury Sri Lanka has to offer. Cater your wedding with a south Asian feast full of spice, fresh seafood and rich culture. If you want to wed somewhere other than the beach, choose a tea plantation, lush jungle or riverboat for your nuptials.

Sri Lanka Climate & Weather

With two very distinct monsoon seasons, be sure to book your vacation to Sri Lanka outside of these months. From May to September, monsoons hit the popular South West region of the island with heavy winds and rain. The dry season for this region runs from December to March, making it the best time for travelers to visit the island. In the less-popular North and Eastern parts of the island, monsoons hit between October and January.
