Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Colombo.

  • You'll be met on arrival by your driver for your private transfer to your fully staffed villa, Habaraduwa House, near Galle. On arrival, relax, settle in and admire the beachfront paradise that is yours for the next nine nights.

  • Today is spent at leisure to recover from your journey. Take a dip in the pool, rest in the sunshine or walk along the sandy beach and soak up the beauty of this magical spot.

  • Today, your driver will take you to nearby Galle, where they'll show you around this delightful fortified city before dropping you off to visit Shahira, a Galle local famed for her cookery skills. Shahira will share with you some local delicacies, teaching you how to make a traditional Sri Lankan dish, which you'll then eat together while she regales you with tales of life in Galle. Later, your driver will take you back to your villa to relax and enjoy the evening in privacy.

  • Another exciting day today as you head out onto the waters of the south coast to look for whales and dolphins. You'll be on a private boat and your experienced guides will take you as close as safely possible (for you and for the whales) to view the whales and dolphins, which are passing by the Sri Lankan coastline. The rest of the day is at leisure.

  • After two days of adventure, take a day to stop and relax. Perhaps read a book under a palm tree on the beach, enjoy the pool or make use of the villa games room.

  • A day to explore the countryside around Galle as you head out on a privately guided bicycle tour. You'll cycle through paddy fields and jungle, with plenty of photo stops and the chance to sample some fresh fruit on your journey.

  • A day at leisure to relax and enjoy the beautiful south coast.

  • Head into Galle today to learn how to paint traditional Sri Lankan masks. Your private instructor is the artist in residence at Galle Fort Art Gallery. They will be delighted to teach you about the historical and cultural significance of the masks as you paint.

  • A final day at leisure to relax in the villa and enjoy the serenity of Habaraduwa before your onward flight tomorrow.

  • Your driver will collect you and drive you to the airport in plenty of time for your flight today. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
