Sri Lanka’s land and its people
Sandy bays and brilliantly blue water, fine sand between your toes, palm trees overhanging the shore, the gentle music of the surf that bewitches you. You don’t have to be on the Maldives to see all of this. On the secluded beaches of Sri Lanka, you will quickly forget the rest of the world. We will be happy to show you the most beautiful places close to our UTMT hotel in Dikwella in the south of the island.
Spices that are certain to set foodies’ pulses racing in anticipation. Market stands that buckle under the weight of fruit in abundance, fishermen who, early in the morning, transform the port into a seafood bazaar. Beautiful buildings that evoke colonial times. Fishermen who, perched on poles in the ocean, keep old traditions alive. Families who, in their front garden, entice you with the fragrance of a simple curry. Experience the friendliness and openness of the people. Get to know Sri Lanka up close and personal.
Have a driver take you to the surrounding towns and villages, for example to Tangalle, Matara, to the fish market in Dondra, or to the weekly market in Dickwella. Utterly relaxed, saunter down the busy streets of Galle between colonial houses, small jewelry shops and antique dealers. And of course, numerous historic hotels and cafés invite you to sample some of Ceylon’s most outstanding teas.
The colonial town of Galle
Probably no other town in Sri Lanka offers such a wealth of historic buildings as Galle. In the Dutch fort, which is over 350 years old and sticks out into the Indian Ocean like a tongue, it is as if entire streets have miraculously escaped the passage of time. Whether ancient churches, historic buildings or massive fortifications – everywhere you go, you are reminded of the era when Galle was an important port city. In addition to the street merchants hawking their goods, from time to time you will also catch sight of daredevils who get their kicks cliff-diving from the Flag Rock Bastion.
Stroll along narrow alleys between restored colonial buildings, antique dealers and small jewelry shops. The numerous historic hotels and cafés invite you to sample some of Ceylon’s very best teas.
