"Pearl in the Indian Ocean"

"Island of the Gods"


those are ancient descriptions of Sri Lanka. Already the dealer in spice mentioned the indescribably beauty of "Serendib" how they used to call the island in those days.

Palm trees swaying in a picturesque way along endless beaches of the warm, blue ocean; rich jungles and lush green tea plantations in the hill country. Cultural richness and Ayurvedic health care mingle with a beautiful landscape as witnesses of thousand years old history. Many dagobas, statues and temples are expressions of deep religiousness.

You can experience the exotic animal life with an adventurous jeep safari in one of the many national parks. Last but not least Sri Lanka is worth a journey because of the natural friendliness and in-born hospitality of its people.

Take the relaxation back to your home country. And your life will remain your friendly companion.
