Essential information for Sri Lanka
The country enjoys near-perfect weather all the year round, with average temperatures hovering around 30° (86° F) in the coastal areas, but much cooler at around 19° (67° F) up in the hills that are central to the island. The mountains create rainy seasons at differing times to other parts of the island.
There’s an island off the coast of India where ancient Buddhist relics lie enshrined by the forest, rainforests are dotted with exotic flowers and incredible wildlife and bustling fish markets line the spectacular coastlines. Welcome to Sri Lanka.

Nourish both your soul and your stomach at boutique resort The Fortress, located on Sri Lanka’s southern shores. Inspired by the Dutch Fort in Galle, the design blends Dutch, Portuguese and Sri Lankan influences and all rooms offer either an ocean or garden view. Spoil yourself with a traditional Ayurvedic treatment at the spa, and then watch the waves at the resort’s Pepper restaurant as you enjoy fare that combines the flavours of modern Asia with ancient Ceylon. We particularly recommend the giant lagoon prawns – delicious.
