The excursion to Hiriwaduna was one of the highlights of our trip as was the hotel at Ulagalla Resort. On days 3 and 5 the location of the hotels in relation to the excursions could have been better as they were 75 minutes drive away, however overall the holiday was one of the best we have ever had. Thank you!

Well we asked for diversity in our holiday and that's what we got!! We started off by visiting the Sigirya Rock Fortress and then the temples at Polonnaruwa to get into the history and culture of Sri Lanka along with the Rangiri Dambulla Cave Temple whilst on route to Kandy. Kandy is home to the temple that holds the ToothRelic and is not to be missed along with a visit to the cultural show and The Royal Botanical Gardens. Then off to the mountains to visit the tea plantations for freshly picked tea, fabulous views and a delicious lunch overlooking a stunning waterfall. We stayed at the Heritance Tea Factory Hotel here which is very quirky. A meal on the train behind the hotel was so much fun, the Guard being the star of the show! Next we travelled to Udawalawe National Park which was fantastic, we saw so many elephants, water buffalo, jackal and birds but sadly no leopards.

Yala was our next destination for another safari, this one was much busier with jeeps everywhere and very little wildlife to be seen for obvious reasons, although a deer did stop by the hotel swimming pool for a drink and crocodiles slept on the banks of the lake!Our last stop on Sri Lanka was at Galle which was wonderful, lots of intriguing little lanes to explore down and history to soak up. All our hotels were fabulous, the food and the service excellent, our favourite being Fort Printers in Galle followed closely by Cinnamom Lodge in Habrana. We had a guide for all our time here who was good company, informative, and took us to all the best restaurants for lunch!! The Maldives were heavenly, a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as we left for home means I hope one day I will be lucky enough to return to this wonderful place! Thank you Anna Rushbrooke for arranging the most wonderful of holidays you certainly exceeded our expectations, hope to travel with Western & Oriental again soon!!
