Got the perfect honeymoon to Sri Lanka for ye and the best is you don’t need to spend all your savings on it! Book via and and get your ticket to the sun!

You will fly from Dublin via Abu Dhabi (with only 1 hour waiting time) to the capital Colombo. It’s a bit of a track to get to the hotel, but a taxi is relatively cheap and it will bring you there in 2 hours and a bit. I have chosen a really beautiful hotel located in the centre of the island in Dambulla, also known as the Cultural Triangle, since there is so much to see. Stay in the 4-star Amaya Lake Hotel (77% on Tripadvisor) set at beautiful Kandamala Lake. It is an eco-friendly and modern accommodation held in wooden design but maintaining the right amount of elegance. The pool is simply amazing and you can indulge in the calmness of the area. On top of that there is a Ayurvedic Spa which has a Yoga centre and treatments that you can book which makes it the perfect place for relaxing! In the hotel area you will have free wi-fi and for trips around the area just take a look at the tour desk, which organizes tailor-made trips and safaris. I have chosen the breakfast option with the room so don’t forget to tick the right room! Of course you can also dine at your own cost in the luxurious Samara Restaurant which will spoil you with Sri Lankan and international cuisine. As I’ve mentioned before, the Cultural Triangle offers a great variety of sights. It consists out of ancient towns, like Dambulla and is home to numerous Buddhist temples set in the soft Sri Lankan jungle. I would also advise you to take trip to the tea plantations and see for yourself how the famous Ceylon Tea is won and maybe try out a cup or two. A day trip to the coast and its stunning beaches is of course always a great option, too!
