Luxury Culture & Beach
Whether for a honeymoon or just a romantic getaway, this combination will not disappoint!
Sri Lanka ranges from beautiful beaches, unbelievable flora and fauna (much endemic), amazing architecture as well as a vast amount of historical and religious sites, white water rafting, cycling and many other activities for more active travelers and finally it consists of the friendliest of people who carry infectious smiles with them every day! Whatever you are looking for in Sri Lanka, it is an island of immense beauty.
Combining the unique culture of Sri Lanka with an unforgettable beach experience in the Maldives at Iru Fushi, brings your tour to a whole new level of luxury. Iru Fushi is located in the northernmost reaches of the Maldivian archipelago, at the heart of Noonu Atoll. Noonu is a community of islands, each with its own distinct allure – a hidden cove here, a lush grove of palm trees there, a lagoon seemingly made just for you. Still others are dotted with villages where traditional ways of life are still proudly preserved, waiting to enchant. The beautiful resort unfolds over 52 acres of natural perfection, a world away from the everyday, yet just a 45-minute awe-inspiring seaplane ride from the capital, Malé. Warm crystal-clear waters wait to embrace you. Soft sands call you to kick off your shoes.
