Sri Lanka’s south coast is famous for its wonderful climate, spectacular beaches, and warm hospitality.
Most visitors to the island fly into Colombo International Airport which is about a 4-hour drive away from the southern beaches and the sprinkling of exceptional places to stay. Naturally, we will organise both your flights and transfers for you, and help you decide where to stay – or which combination of places to stay.

Flying time from London: Just under 11 hours direct flight to Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo.
