We are pleased to state that the Government along with the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau are planning to restart Tourism from the 1st of August 2020.

It is indeed a good feeling to break the stillness after sometime with a positive news update to all our patrons and we thought what better way to communicate this special message than to create a short clip, with some snippets of our beautiful island playing in the background.

The preparation to re-open the borders have been arrived at following the consent of the Ministry of Health and taking into consideration the fact that there hasn’t been any new COVID-19 positive cases reported from civilians of the locality since the beginning of May, other than ones in designated quarantine centres.

This however will be a gradual process with authorities said to be initially permitting only small groups of visitors to the country. Accordingly, please be informed of the below requirements and guidelines pertaining to the resumption of travel in Sri Lanka.

  • Minimum 5-day stay in the country.
  • PCR test to be taken 72 hours prior to arrival to the country through a certified health institution.
  • Availability of a valid Return air ticket and health insurance.
  • A pre-arranged itinerary.
  • Confirmation of booking at Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) certified accommodation (we will share this as and when we receive it).

  • All vehicles will carry a hygiene pack with disposable or reusable masks, hand sanitizer and disposable gloves for touring clients.
  • Disposable or reusable masks and hand sanitizer for transfer clients.
  • All vehicles will be thoroughly disinfected after each transfer.
