Luxury holidays in Sri Lanka with children

A tree plantation covers the whole valley.
Sri Lanka has some incredible landscapes to explore with the family

A stunning location by anyone’s standards, Sri Lanka offers families the perfect opportunity to introduce their children to the marvel of the Indian subcontinent without having to compromise on comfort.

With its breathtakingly gorgeous landscapes, pristine, palm-fringed beaches and colonial architecture, there is plenty to keep the whole family not only happy but truly mesmerized.

Children will be amazed at the adventures on offer in Sri Lanka, with wildlife to be encountered, including leopards, monkeys and elephants.

The ancient temples carved from cliffs in Dambulla and fortresses built on boulders in Sigiriya will capture their imagination and inspire a wealth of questions about the captivating culture that produced them, and the air of mysticism around every corner will keep them occupied till well-passed bedtime.

A definite plus of this exotic location is that after nurturing those relentlessly enquiring minds, parents can relax and recuperate, thanks to the decadent hotels and spas on offer betwixt the enchantingly lush rainforests.

The diversity of Sri Lankan cuisine has been influenced by foreign traders, cultural influences from neighboring countries such as India, as well as Portuguese influences. Kids will love Sri Lankan hospitality, as the locals will go out of their way to ensure the little ones feel welcomed.

There will be ample options to stick with Western food, but we recommend easing kids into the tantalizing tastes of food in Sri Lanka. Try hoppers as a great breakfast dish, which is a cross between an omelet and pancakes, or roti flatbreads stuffed with a choice of fillings.

Delve into Tea Country, dine on traditional cuisines and chat with friendly locals. Sri Lanka really is a naturally beautiful destination, fit for the task of delivering enjoyment for the whole family.
