Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle & The Maldives

16 days from £5,150 per person

This fabulous tour allows a mix of culture and sheer bliss. On arrival in Sri Lanka visit the historical cultural triangle where you can climb the famous Sigiriya Rock. Also known as 'Lion's Rock', here the old fort was built by King Kashyapa (AD 477 - 495), and later used as a Buddhist monastery until 14th century. Continue onto the Dambulla Caves Temples, where the Buddha statues and cave paintings are mesmerising.

Travelling further south into Kandy, stroll through the beautiful Peradeniya Botanical Gardens and explore the Temple of the Tooth where you can gain an insight to Sri Lanka's Buddhist history. A walk around Kandy and visiting the market is also a fun experience before travelling to Negombo for your final night in Sri Lanka. For the final part of the tour, a short flight over to the Maldives is followed by six nights of relaxation and indulgence. Wade in the shallow shores of the Maldivian islands, laze on white beaches and snorkel in crystal-clear waters for a perfect end to the tour before returning home.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your very own tailor-made tour of Sri Lanka and the Maldives. If you are feeling inspired and would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoons and Multi-Country Trips, as well as our favourite ActiveSurfing, Scuba DivingBeach and Spa & Wellness itineraries.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
