Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in Sri Lanka your home away from home

Holidays to Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Orient, are an all absorbing mix of beaches, naturally stunning landscapes and vibrant culture. There is so much to see, do and enjoy on the island that it would be impossible to do more than scrape the very surface in this rough guide to Sri Lanka, and you would be advised to buy a Sri Lanka travel guide in order to discover the finer points about the island. Located in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka holidays offer extremely good value for money, especially when you take into consideration the fantastically warm welcome you will receive, the stunning sights you will see and the great activities you will enjoy. Despite trying to avoid clichés, Sri Lanka can only be described as a green paradise!

Things to do on holiday in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is adorned with amazing historical and religious monuments, many of which are completely unique. Any Sri Lanka tour of historic and religious monuments must take in sites including the staggering 5th century Sigiriya Fortress which rises dramatically out of the thick tropical forest, the ancient capitals of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, Kandy’s religious centre to the cave temples of Dambulla at least! As you travel Sri Lanka’s roads, many more amazing man made sights will catch your eye, and the vast majority are worth further exploration.

The tropical beaches are a real asset for Sri Lanka holidays. Stretching almost uninterrupted around the coast, Sri Lanka’s beaches are powder soft and startlingly golden. Littered only by vividly coloured fishing boats, you can always find a secluded spot on the beach from a Sri Lanka property, and the sea is warm and clear, perfect for taking a quick dip, snorkelling or sailing amongst other water sports. The scuba diving in Sri Lanka is exceptional, and there are plenty of opportunities to go diving form Sri Lanka accommodation.

The tropical forests which cover the mountainous interior of Sri Lanka are a marvel of nature. Every shade of green blend together to hide some 2,000 elephants, four species of wild cats (including leopard), sloth bears and over 400 species of predominantly brightly coloured tropical birds. There are four main national parks in Sri Lanka, providing a magnificent opportunity to explore the forest.

The ten day festival of Kandy Esala Perahera in July is a fantastic time to be staying in a Sri Lanka property, allowing visitors to experience Sri Lankan culture at its most vibrant and accessible. As any Sri Lanka travel guide will tell you though, finding Sri Lanka accommodation at the time may prove hard.

Places to visit on holiday in Sri Lanka

The South Coast of Sri Lanka is a perfect place to relax on the beach, surrounded by tiny fishing villages, the fascinating colonial port of Galle and some of the most romantic spots on the whole island.

The West Coast of Sri Lanka is the traditional coast on which to take a Sri Lanka holiday. The beaches are fantastic and perfectly suited for family holidays and luxury beach breaks. The natural lagoons and inlets along the west coast mean that nature lovers will be thrilled by Sri Lanka accommodation on the west coast.

The central mountains of Sri Lanka are simply beautiful. This is the place to come for cultural explorations of Sri Lanka, especially around Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. Nature flourishes in the central region too, with much of the best natural landscapes for walking and tours of Sri Lanka’s finest historic sites.

Paradise found!

5 of 5
Beautiful villa set in vast, lush grounds with a golden beach on the doorstep. The villa is well located and a short Tuk, Tuk ride away from ATM & supermarket as well as Galle Fort, which we enjoyed visiting for shopping and eating out. The Villa is right on a busy road but it is gated and this does not affect ur stay as the rooms are all to the front and we were not aware of any other noise but the crashing of waves on the beach. The decor is beautiful with local wood carvings and homely touches. We would have preferred a washing machine but Susantha did arranged for our laundry to be done for a fee. Initially we were concerned about the 24 hour staff but they were all lovely and very discrete. Villa cleaned daily and sheets & towels washed every 2nd or 3rd day. Delicious heathy Breakfast included every morning too. We enjoyed several evening meals prepared by Pushpa & Yasuri which were delicious and my husband very much enjoyed a cookery lesson from them. Susantha was a great host, nothing was too much trouble. He organised our outings, giving us local advice. Always smiling and approachable. The night guard was so friendly and it did feel good having him lock up and patrol the garden at night. We all had a fabulous sleep in the very comfortable, net draped beds and only got 2 bites the entire holiday. All in All, we had the most special vacation on this beautiful island and hope very much to return to Villa Golden again in the future.
