Colombo Holidays Experiences

  • There’s a wide array of luxury hotels in Colombo. Many of these are on the ocean front and sit within beautifully manicured gardens. They offer exquisite décor, beach access, spas, swimming pools, gyms, delightful restaurants and other amenities to make your stay a 5-star experience from start to finish. If you’re taking a Colombo culinary package, you’ll find richly spiced dishes with a fusion of flavours from all over the world. There are plenty of high-end restaurants offering Sri Lankan and international cuisine, and some even offer private dining.
  • The museums of Colombo often explore Sri Lanka’s history and the many different colonial influences and ethnic groups. The National Museum of Colombo and the Dutch Period Museum are both worth a visit for those wanting to find out more about the city’s past. For something a bit less serious, there’s also the Traditional Puppet Art Museum, which displays handcrafted puppets produced by local artists.
  • If you want to focus a little more on relaxation, the main beach is Mount Lavinia Beach, where you can lie back on the sands and take some time for yourself. Alternatively, you could head to Viharamahadevi Park where you can relax on the grass though the day. Look up and you may well spot the local bat population hanging from the trees. If you want to see more nature, visit Talangama Wetland where you can view many bird species native to Sri Lanka.
  • There is also a great shopping culture in Colombo. The upmarket shops can be found at Crescat Boulevard, while Galle Road is more focused on local, independent crafts.
