Gone are the days where tourists passed over Sri Lanka to visit other Asian countries. This year holidays to Sri Lanka are very much in vogue. There are so many reasons to visit Sri Lanka, go see it before the crowds arrive!
Sri Lanka boasts a coastline full of white sandy beaches and an interior with tea plantations and rolling hills. There are eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites so if culture is what you seek, you will find it in abundance. Sri Lanka is home to the world’s only elephant orphanage as well as offering numerous safari options. Of course we can’t forget the people, you will fall in love with their traditions, culture and their welcoming smile 😀.
I found a great deal with Tropical Sky staying in the highly rated Club Hotel Dolphin. Situated on the sunny west coast, this all-inclusive beach front property is incredible value. Rated number 1 on tripadvisor, this hotel receives excellent reviews and was a travellers choice awards winner in 2016. It boasts one of Sri Lanka’s largest swimming pools and a wide selection of facilities on site, including the luxurious Pavillion Spa, evening entertainment and free WiFi. If you are feeling energetic you can enjoy a game of tennis, volleyball, horse riding or use the gym.
Water-sports enthusiasts will enjoy kayaking or scuba diving. If you want to see some of the country side, the hotel can arrange tours for you. For those travelling with children, there is a kids club on site and a separate children’s swimming pool. The Club Hotel Dolphin offers meals and drinks included in the price of your stay. You can enjoy the buffet with separate cooking stations in the main restaurant ‘Sands’ or go a la carte in ‘The Cove’. There are also a choice of three bars offering complimentary drinks and snacks throughout your stay.
Fly from Dublin to Sri Lanka in April, May, August or September and enjoy a seven night all-inclusive stay in this luxury resort for only €1169 per person. Prices also include airport transfers.
