Travelling Alone?

We have 2 rooms available on every tour date for single occupancy use, however a single supplement must be paid on the add-on part of the tour.

Colombo Airport Closure 2017

Please note that if you are travelling on the Jewels of Sri Lanka, Secrets of Sri Lanka or Grand Tour of Sri Lanka main tours, Colombo Airport will be switching to nighttime operation in order to carry out refurbishment in early 2017. As a result, your extension may start a day later. If this is the case you will receive an extra evening meal in Sri Lanka prior to your flight in the evening. Your full itinerary and whether you are affected will be confirmed to you in writing post booking.

Alcoholic drinks

Please note that Kerala has strict laws regarding the governance of the sale of alcohol in public places including hotels and restaurants. The sale and consumption of alcohol is therefore often restricted in hotels, varying from one establishment to another. However, you may bring your own alcohol with you for private consumption in your room.
