What are the three essential ingredients for a family holiday?

  • The company of your loved ones
  • Pristine surroundings
  • Modern comforts


Let us discuss the best places in Paradise Island (in no particular order), which offers a combination of the latter two, in making your family trip to Sri Lanka a successful one.

1. Weligama Bay Marriott Resort and Spa

Tucked away from Colombo’s bustling city life, Weligama is Sri Lanka’s popular fishing village where the popular Marriott chain of hotels has opened its most recent branch. World class amenities and a family-first approach is what you can expect here.

The hotel has ideal beachfront access where you can sit with your children for some sandcastle building, beach volleyball or even a swim. Visit the resort’s concierge service for some delightful experiences such as surfing lessons, whale watching in the neighboring town of Mirissa or some turtle watching in Koggala while you stay at Weligama Bay Marriott Resort and Spa.

The expansive Kid’s Club is something your kids are going to be visiting often and you could accompany them for some video games, story time or craft activities. The restaurant also offers a kids menu to make sure their cravings are satisfied – pizzas, burgers, ice creams, doughnuts, smoothies and a whole lot more!

This resort boasts not one or two but three swimming pools – one for kids with a small water slide, one for doing your daily laps, and one for lounging on sunbeds. If the pool workout is not enough for you, the hotel is equipped with a world-class gym which is open 24 hours, and the resort’s signature Quan Spa for an unwinding massage after that.

2. Hotel Riu – Ahungalla

This Spanish hotel brand is the first of its kind in Sri Lanka and with 500 rooms for guests, you are almost never to be disappointed with a full house. Located in Ahungalla – a beautiful west coast beach, Riu is ideal for families with its round-the-clock food and drinks service policy and daily live entertainment shows.

To cater to the crowd, the resort has three massive swimming pools, multiple restaurants and bars. What is exciting about the atmosphere at Riu is the layout of the pools – elevated above the beach, bordered with rows of white plastic sun beds, giving the impression of going on a cruise ship. For more water fun, there is a lovely enclosed water play area which can occupy children
for hours together. The pretty coastline falling on the other side of the hotelproperty is also a popular activity amongst families. Take your children to the neighboring Kosgoda beach where there is a turtle hatchery as well as a tour of the Madu River by boat.

The all-inclusive family holiday package that Riu Ahungalla offers includes 24/7 food, soft drinks, tea, and coffee so parents need not worry about children’s hunger needs. For adults to relax and unwind, visit the Renova Spa for a variety of treatments, beauty salon, massages, and a complementary hydrotherapy area! The fitness gym is also on the house for guests along with the steam bath
and whirlpool bath facilities.

3. Shangri La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa

Known as Sri Lanka’s biggest holiday resort, Shangri La’s Hambantota property comprises of 300 rooms, 21 suites, an 18-hole golf course, an artisanal village, and several other recreational facilities. Service is the key aspect at Shangri-La, the warm manners, always crisp uniform, and genuine friendliness will make you feel warmly welcomed and will always aim to create a memorable
holiday for you and your loved ones.

Because the resort is located in an isolated area of the Hambantota district, there is not much activity outside of the hotel and hence it is advisable for guests to stay on a full board basis. However, family excursions to explore Sri Lanka’s wildlife in Bundala and Yala is quite convenient from here.

The Bojun Hala restaurant is one of the best highlights at Shangri La – adults and children can go head over heels with the massive buffet spread which includes a range of cuisines, courses, and live stations. The extensive range of dessert options are also to die for, particularly for those who are not very diet conscious!

One free-form pool is ideal for larger crowds and families while the serene sunset pool is ideally meant for sipping on cocktails and hanging out with your partner. Children will always be occupied with the massive recreation area including wet slides, jungle gyms, fountains and a whole lot more. Apart from that, there is a trapeze center, a huge trampoline and a recreation center with games suitable for all ages.

Exploring the 18-hole golf course itself is an activity that takes up a few hours. The gorgeous drive across the course offers views of a man-made pond, plantations, and the beautiful course. The Chi Spa offers treatments in open chalets as well as indoor rooms with a variety of herbal treatments, Balinese and Swedish massages to choose from.

So there we have it, some of the best remedies for a great family holiday in Sri Lanka. You could base yourself at one of these resorts and opt for Sri Lanka day tours to explore other parts of the country. That way, not only do you get a chance to see all of Sri Lanka but also come back to a relaxing, ultra-luxury bedroom to unwind and let your children lose!

Picture a gorgeous maze of lagoons, waterways and sand dunes that glitter in gold when the sun sets while wondering whether or not you should visit the Bundala National Park in Sri Lanka. The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands has recognized this highly important wetland sanctuary that provides shelter to thousands of colorful birds and quite a few bigger mammals.

Introduction

The Bundala National Park is located 245km Southeast of Colombo, on Tissamaharama Road in Hambantota city. The park is world renowned as a wintering ground for aquatic birds that migrate to Sri Lanka to escape the winter season in their respective home countries. This is the only National Park in Sri Lanka where you can see estuarine, saltwater and freshwater crocodiles, all within the same safari ride. The exceptional plant life enhances the beauty of the park, thereby making it more attractive to visitors.

Established in 1969 as a wildlife sanctuary, Bundala was transformed into a National Park in 1993. In addition to being proclaimed as a Ramsar wetland site, UNESCO chose Bundala National Park as a biosphere reserve in 2005, making it the fourth biosphere reserve in Sri Lanka.

What to see at Bundala National Park

Tourists flock in large number to experience the eco-friendly environment of this park. There are seven types of terrestrial habitats and six types of wetlands bringing together the ecological areas on the national park. Don’t forget to inform your Sri Lanka tour operator to book your jeep safari ride to explore the park and all of its natural beauty.

Plants

There are also several kinds of dry and prickly shrubs and herbs that have been spotted in large numbers. There’s a total of 383 plant species, belonging to 90 families. Some popular ones are Hydrilla (with blue-green algae) and the Phytoplankton (in every lagoon).

Reptiles and Amphibians

During your jeep safari ride at Bundala National Park, you will be seeing from a variety of 15 different species of amphibians and 48 species of reptiles. And guess what? The estuarine crocodile species is the largest one alive on this planet! This crocodile is as heavy as 1200kgs, with the male croc being seven meters long and the female one being about three meters in length. You will also see start tortoises, pythons, rat snakes, monitor lizards, cat snakes, whip snakes and endemic flying snakes. To top it all, there are five endangered species of marine turtles that use this national park as a breeding ground.

In addition to the bird sanctuary, there are also big and attractive wildlife animals such as elephants, sambar, barking deer, common langur, spotted deer, mongoose, jackal, wild boar, fishing cat, and the Sri Lankan leopard walking around at intervals. Also, included in the 324 species of vertebrates are 32 fish species, 197 bird species and 52 butterfly species living in the national park.

Bird Watching at Bundala National Park

Watching birds at this park is one of the most enjoying activities for tourists. About 200 migratory birds come here from all over the world. During your bird watching activity, you will probably spot the Great Flamingo, Sri Lankan Jungle Fowl, Sri Lankan Woodshrike and the Brown-capped Babbler.

Are you an elephant lover? Would the thought of an elephant encounter in their natural habitat excite you? If yes, then a wildlife safari at the Udawalawe National Park is a must do during your tour in Sri Lanka.

Although Sri Lanka is a small pearl in the Indian Ocean, it still possesses high levels of biodiversity and is known as one of the top biodiversity hotspots worldwide!

If the south of Sri Lanka is on your itinerary, then you are probably considering whether to visit Yala National Park or Udawalawe National Park. Both are great in their own context but Udawalawe, although smaller in size, is recommended for guaranteed elephant sightings and is much less crowded. Also, while Yala National Park is closed for about 6-8 weeks every year, Udawalawe is the best place in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants at any time of the year. There are about a few hundreds of elephants inside the park premises and there are high chances that you will see a herd of female elephants moving or bathing together in the wild.

A research report from the World Animal Protection Organization stated that the highest density of wild Asian elephants is in Sri Lanka – providing an estimate of about five to six thousand roaming in the wild while there are about 200 in captivity within National Parks. Sri Lanka has done a great job in protecting its wildlife while at the same time, making it accessible to visitors.

How to get to Udawalawe National Park

From Colombo, the best way to get to Udawalawe is in a private vehicle – it is a drive of about 4-5 hours. You can book your jeep safari ride through the hotel you are staying at or your tour operator in Sri Lanka will do the needful for you. The safari is about 3 hours long and is possible during the early morning hours (about 6 a.m.) or in the early evening – at about 3.00 p.m. A jeep can accommodate up to six adults and so if you want the per person cost to go down, you could share your safari ride. Apart from the jeep cost, there is an entrance ticket payable at the park.

Most safari drivers are well aware about the whereabouts of the animals of the park and are always trying their level best to give you maximum sightings.

Close to the park, several accommodation options are available – offering incredible value for money and friendly employees to help you out. If you are planning just a day trip to Udawalawe, Blue Lanka Tours can arrange that for you as well. You could choose to stay at one of the exclusive coastal resorts in Hambantota, Tangalle or Weligama in the south of Sri Lanka. Be prepared for a long day ahead though because the drive to Udawalawe from there is about 1.5-2 hours long. Shangri La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa, Anantara Peace Haven – Tangalle, Amanwella Tangalle, Cape Weligama and Weligama Bay Marriott Resort and Spa are just a few lovely hotels to name.

Best time to visit Udawalawe National Park

Udawalawe is located in a hot and semi-arid environment with an average temperature of about 32 degrees Celsius. Witnessing a herd of Sri Lankan elephants is most likely near rivers and the reservoir of Udawalawe. The dry season – from May to September – increases the chances of seeing elephants gathered near bodies of water.

However, if you have not timed your holiday in Sri Lanka during any of those months, don’t be disappointed. Elephants are visible during the rainy season too! In fact you will see more baby elephants out and about because wet season is when elephants mate.

What to expect at a safari at the Udawalawe National Park?

Once you get to the entrance of the park, you will have to pay for your ticket. The office accepts cash and card payments so don’t worry if you do not have any Sri Lankan Rupees on you at the time. Most often, your driver will be the one spotting birds, elephants, crocodiles and monkeys for you. You will be amazed at his vision while he points out to something far away and you struggle to spot it even with a binoculars maybe!

The drive throughout the park is bound to be rough and bumpy, more so because the jeep driver will try to take you to the best visibility location when an animal is spotted. Drivers and tourists are not allowed to chase and harass the animals in the park – not even if it is for a photograph.

During the morning safari ride, expect to see about 30-40 elephants throughout the park. But an evening safari will show you many more as they venture out to the river for a drink or bath.

What should you carry on the safari?

Well known for its wildlife photography, you cannot visit Udawalawe National Park without an HD camera and a zoom lens. Getting good shots on your smartphone is highly unlikely. Bottled water, and something to tie your hair behind is also advisable when on the safari ride. Sunscreen lotion is not required as most of the jeeps have a shade and you won’t really be exposed to the sun.
