Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with friendly people and great service for travellers. Food was of a high quality throughout. Perhaps the highlight was our visit to the tea plantations and our stay at the Heritance Tea Factory. The Santani Wellness Hotel near Kandy was also wonderful - an architectural gem in stunning mountain scenery. Our least favourite hotel was the Grand Udawalawe Safari Resort, which was tired and corporate in style. We also wondered why two elephant safaris had been included - one was more than enough.
