Here are the highlights of the trip and tour to Sri Lanka:
Upon touching down in Colombo, immediately transfer onto the Air Taxi which flies directly to Victoria Golf and Country Resort in Kandy. This is a breathtaking flight that lands on the Victoria reservoir. It is therefore possible to be on the 1st tee within 1 hour of landing in Sri Lanka. Check into your luxurious boutique hotel situated within the 500 acres estate of Victoria. Stay three nights here golfing and relaxing amidst the magnificent Kandyan hills. Kandy is just 40 minutes away.
The Victoria Golf and Country Resort, offers a wide range of facilities including an 18-hole golf course, putting green and practice range, Pro shop and PGA golf academy. Other sports and recreational facilities include bar and terrace dining, floodlit tennis court, Saddle club, riding lesson for adults and kids, and horse safaris. There is an outdoor infinity swimming pool and an Ayurvedic wellness centre offering a range of relaxing treatments
The surrounding reservoir and central hills are ideal for bird watching. Over 100 species of birds can be spotted on nature trails within the 500- acre estate accompanied by a local expert. Mountain bike trails also provide for much adventure. The city of Kandy is steeped in history and culture. Interesting activities include: a visit to the Temple of the Tooth where a sacred tooth relic of the Lord Buddha is enshrined; Peradeniya Botanical gardens, with its orchid collection and carefully laid-out trees.
Offering connoisseur luxury and a wealth of facilities, The Firs is an ideal holiday destination located in the midst of the glorious Sri Lankan hill country. This heritage bungalow which dates back to over a hundred years ago was once the holiday home of the country's first Prime Minister, Hon. D. S. Senanayake, and has been conceptualized to reflect the British Colonial era, offering guests a unique, one-of-a-kind experience.
Nuwara Eliya was made into a summer retreat by the Brits in the early 1800s and much of its colonial character still remains. The town sprawls over the fertile valley flanked by Mount Pidurutalagala and Single Tree Mountain and is scattered with Victorian-style 19th century homes, bungalows, guesthouses and hotels complete with gabled roofs, large open fireplaces, gardens with neatly-clipped lawns and colorful flower beds.
Spend two days golfing at the Nuwara Eliya Golf Club. The testing course here was built by a Scottish soldier of the Golan Highlanders in 1889 for the British servicemen and officials stationed here in 1889. Occasionally you may even feel you are playing golf in Scotland, but the course holds many features unique to Sri Lanka. Whether it is your helpful caddie and his Sri Lankan smile, or the course’s flora and fauna you’ll be in no doubt you in one of Asia’s beautiful corners.
Today you head back to the capital city of Colombo for your final night where you will be staying at Tintagel – a luxurious boutique hotel housed in one of Sri Lanka’s most famous ancestral residences belonging to the family of Sri Lanka’s former President. Experience Colombo’s colonial architecture with a visit to the Fort - a three mile long rampart originally built in the sixteenth century by the Portuguese and then further developed by the Dutch and the Brits. Here, many of the old colonial buildings jostle for attention with the rest of Colombo’s modern skyline.
