Arrival in Negombo
Located just 20 minutes drive from the airport in Colombo, Negombo is the perfect place to kick-start your Sri Lanka holiday. You’ll hop into your private car with your driver who will whisk you straight to your villa in Negombo. Your villa has an elegant and atmospheric feel to it, decorated with an eye for detail.
The activities for the rest of the day are for you to decide; put your feet up with a book, take a dip in the pool or soak up the sun and tropical greenery around you. Your villa is within walking distance of the beach and local restaurants, so you could take a gentle stroll or hop in a tuk-tuk to explore the town – it’s completely up to you.
After breakfast today you’ll get acquainted with the city of Negombo and its intriguing colonial past on a boat trip of the lagoon. You’ll get the chance to visit the famous Dutch canals, as well as the local fish market, where your senses will come alive as you wander through the vibrant market stalls.
After you’ve packed your bags and grabbed some breakfast, you’ll find your private driver ready and waiting to take you to your next stop.
From here, you can go and climb the mighty Sigiriya rock and spot wildlife on a jeep safari, or perhaps enjoy a homestay experience, where you’ll learn to cook up a storm with a local family.

Upgrade to our In Style accommodation
If you choose to upgrade you’ll stay in an eco-friendly resort surrounded by mangrove forests and winding rivers. The land was originally a coconut grove and many of the trees still remain. Some were used to construct the bungalows and connecting walkways. The resort is committed to sustainability and uses solar energy for heating, recycles as much waste as possible, grows its own organic vegetables and employs people from the local rural community. So, why not treat yourself to an ayurvedic massage and feel good about relaxing!
