Temples, Rice Paddies and Coral

Are you planning your honeymoon which is that once in a lifetime trip that you want to be that extra bit special? Well how about combining two of the most luxurious holiday destinations for that dream trip.

Our specialist partner Exsus has created a wonderful itinerary which is perfect for couples who want a mix of island relaxation with culture. The Maldives and Sri Lanka is just the tonic.

Tailor made itinerary

First things first, itineraries are tailor made based on your wish list but here’s a taster to get you inspired.


With no less than five UNESCO Heritage Sites, you’ll be captivated by the remnants of early Sinhalese civilization dotted amongst the green highlands when you visit the Cultural Triangle in Sri Lanka. As Anuradhapura consists of over a dozen archaeological sites, a cycling tour is a great way to get around the ancient city in order to pack all of the sights into one scenic trip.
But your accommodation will be no relic! Ulagalla is a collection of the region’s slickest eco-villas, which stand on stilts above the lotus topped wetlands, rice paddies, and woodland. Pure tranquillity!

Then take a couple of nights in Sigiriya, here a hotel like the Jetwing Vil Uyana’s boasts stilted hideaways. Perched above lush wetlands and rice paddies, and with views of the Sigiriya rock fortress. Here, you’ll be perfectly placed to explore the UNESCO sites contained within the Cultural Triangle: climbing the staircases of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
Then simply relax with spa treatments and tranquil picnics set among the rice paddies – bliss!


Set alongside a tranquil lake within an amphitheatre of mist-draped hills, enjoy a walking tour around the bustling city of Kandy. Experience its vibrant culture and scenic streets before heading to the Norwood Tea Estate to learn about the history of the factory and to see tea being harvested. Then, spend two nights in a former colonial manor house for an elegant boutique hotel option set in the picturesque countryside.

The Maldives

Then it’s time to totally relax as you head to Male in the Maldives. You’ll be surrounded by coral reefs and schools of manta rays, where a villa above the water means you can slip into the clear waters for snorkelling each morning. You can spend your entire day indulging in water sports, or you can simply relax on the beach or enjoy a spa treatment. Private dining is the icing on the honeymoon cake for a real romantic finish to this bucket list trip.
