Sri Lanka may be a small country but it has everything from vast stretches of coastline to rolling tea plantations, dense rainforest, picturesque beaches, ancient relics and culturally unique cities.
Where to rest your head | All Things to do  
CEYLON TEA TRAILS, HATTON
Tea Trails is the world’s first tea bungalow resort, perched at an altitude of 1250 metres in Sri Lanka’s panoramic Ceylon tea region, bordering the World Heritage Central Highlands. The four bungalows vary in size from 4 to 6 rooms & suites; 21 in all. Each bungalow is unique – lakeside Castlereagh & Summerville, Norwood with panoramic views and Tientsin, the most traditional colonial.
 
This is the ideal setting for trekking and biking against the breathtaking backdrop of mountains, lakes, winding roads and waterfalls. If you prefer to unwind, observe life on a working tea estate while being pampered by your butler, enjoy a spa treatment, croquet on the lawn or sunbathe alongside the pool. Or explore the lush tea fields & visit a century old factory for a gentle education in the art of Ceylon Tea.

CAPE WELIGAMA, WELIGAMA
Weligama is a bustling coastal town roughly a 40 minute drive east of Galle, on the southern most tip of Sri Lanka. Cape Weligama is perfectly positioned for 270-degree scenery of the Indian Ocean, backed by a palm-covered headland and set within 12 acres of landscaped gardens – undoubtedly one of the best positions along this coastline. 
 
The property’s style and architecture reflects Sri Lanka’s rich history and culture yet blends flawlessly with smart and contemporary design. There are just 40 suites and villas – the stand-alone villas are fashioned to replicate a traditional Sri Lankan village with terracotta-tiled roofs; interiors are spacious and flooded with light and have incredible sea views. The resort has a crescent shaped cliff-top infinity pool, three dining options, in-villa spa experiences, a gym, a Kid’s Club and a Dive Centre.
 
The beach is wide and long, covered with lots of colourful fishing boats and is famous for its gentle waves. It is also just a 5 minute drive from Mirissa Harbour where the southern whale-watching excursions depart from – an area also known for its distinctive stilt fisherman that can be seen in the early hours of the morning and early evening.

THE FORTRESS RESORT & SPA, GALLE
The Fortress Resort & Spa is a stunning boutique property set in a beautiful beach front location. The resort combines the best elements of colonial Dutch and Portuguese designs which echoes of Old Ceylon. The property has a distinct old world charm and features large wooden doors, perfectly manicured lawns, columns whitewashed in brilliant white and perfect view of the ocean. 
 
The 53 guestrooms are tastefully and minimally, decorated, with Egyptian cotton linens and dark wood floors. They are all equipped with modern amenities such as Bose surround sound systems, plasma TVs with DVD players and espresso machines. The open-plan bathrooms have rain showers and Jacuzzi tubs.
 
The restaurants at the Fortress use locally sourced ingredients. Restaurant Pepper serves a fresh catch of the day and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And, at the alfresco Heat, guests can bask in the sun while enjoying freshly prepared sea food. The T Lounge offers a wide selection of specialty teas, and at Wine3, one of the resort’s private-dining experiences, you can tap into an extensive wine cellar featuring more than 2,000 bottles.

The country enjoys near perfect weather all the year round, with average temperatures hovering around 30C in the coastal areas, but much cooler at around 19C up in the hills that are central to the island.
