The India’s teardrop
Tailor-made trip to Sri Lanka
The best way to travel to Sri Lanka, tailor-made and privately. From coconut-fringed shores, tropical plains upholstered with rice fields and pristine beaches to legendary Ceylon tea plantations dotted with ancient colonial mansions, now converted into charming hotels, little Sri Lanka surprises by combining a natural and cultural richness unique in the world with a privileged climate and the slight trace of British distinction of the old colonial era.
Wild and authentic, the pearl of the Indian Ocean stands out as one of the most surprising and least overcrowded destinations on the Asian continent. Wherever the traveler goes, its inhabitants will welcome you with a smile.

Not to be missed: Tea factories converted into luxury hotels
In ancient Ceylon, there is a unique and wild place nestled in the middle of the Nuwara Eliya Mountains. An old tea factory converted into luxurious accommodation with breathtaking views. Here, monkeys climb up the pillars as if they were trees, swifts build nests in the corners and elephants come to drink and bathe in the lake in front of the hotel.
Part of the experience offers the opportunity to learn how to collect tea leaves from the surrounding plantation, assisting in the drying and packing process. A memory that will remain indelible in the mind of the traveler.
Recommended season: spring
Sri Lanka has a tropical climate with very pleasant year-round temperatures and occasional low-intensity monsoons. . Thanks to a central mountain range that acts as a dividing screen, monsoons only affect the northeast coast from November to January and the southwest coast from May to July. Inland and in the mountain areas (Nuwara, Eliya, Adam’s Peak, etc.), temperatures tend to be cooler and can drop to around 15°C at night.
In the city of Kandy, during the full moon days of July and August, the Esala Perahera Buddhist festival is celebrated. It lasts 10 days and coincides with the lunar month “Esala”, according to the Sinhalese calendar. Its beautiful streets are flooded with pilgrims, curious people and travelers who walk in procession to the Temple of the Buddha’s Tooth, where this sacred relic is kept. A beautifully decorated large elephant parades carrying a replica of the tooth and dozens of elephants, musicians and dancers dressed in traditional costumes follow it through the torch-lit streets.
It is a spectacle worth seeing in which the different cultural and religious traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism are mixed.
