Sri Lanka Bucket List

May 27, 2017
98 Acres Hotel, Sri Lanka - PinayFlyingHigh.com-200
I’ve just returned from my third visit to the wonderful island of Sri Lanka and once again, I’m reminded how very unfit I am. The island has so much to offer specially for the adventurous travelers which unfortunately, isn’t me at all. I do however find myself pushing myself to the limit and doing every single activity that one must do in this island no matter how strenuous it can be. It’s p

Sri Lanka is one of the most popular destinations from the GCC countries for a myriad of reasons but of course, Sri Lanka being a cheap destination for a short holiday is the number one among all the reasons the travelers have.

Vivanta by Taj Bentota
That was what welcomed us as soon as we arrived at Vivanta by Taj Bentota. The coastal town of Bentota is about 1 hour and 30 minutes away from the capital city of Sri Lanka, Colombo. Popular for its beach and world-class hotels, Bentota is one of the major tourist destinations of this island nation. Whenever I create a holiday package to Sri Lanka, I would always include a stay in this city and more particularly,

Being the cultural capital of Sri Lanka, Kandy is listed as one of the UNESCO Heritage Sites. The Temple of the Tooth can be found here which is

Where I Stayed in Kandy: Amaya Hills

June 30, 2014
Amaya Hills Kandy
We arrived at Kandy town proper after a grueling 7-hr bus ride from Passikuda. From the town center, we had to change to a smaller vehicle as our bus won’t be able to climb up to the top of the mountain where Amaya Hills, our next hotel for this 7-day Sri Lanka trip is located. It was raining quite hard that day and the road leading up to the hotel was small and congested. It wasn’t really ideal for us

Where To Stay In Dambulla: Amaya Lake

June 2, 2014
Amaya Lake
Amaya Lake in Dambulla is one of the resorts that I’ve seen in Sri Lanka which stuck in my memory. It’s a huge property and I love the fact that they have kept the natural landscape of the place. Trees, grass, the lake – everything about this property makes you feel so close to nature. I’d definitely recommend it to people who are more into active tourism as the resort offers a lot of outdoo
