PARADISE DIARIES: SRI LANKA #4

BENTOTA BEACH - VIVANTA BY TAJ

Another day, another start at the beach...

BEACH SCENES
Waking up to another beautiful morning in Sri Lanka, I threw off my duvet, grabbed my favourite Triangl bikini and ran down to the beach. If there's one aspect of staying at the Vivanta By Taj that I loved more than anything else, it's their private beach. Their King Coconut water coming in close second. 
THE GALLERY CAFE, COLOMBO 
LUNCH - MOUNT LAVINIA HOTEL
On our last day we decided to head to the city. If you're coming into Colombo from Bentota, I'd highly recommend stopping here for lunch. Another architectural dream. The views onto the sea from the dining terrace were really vast, you'd never guess you were so close to the rich culture and hustle and bustle of Bentota.

Colombo market was a total multi-sense adventure. The sights, smells and feeling that overwhelmed me walking the streets there was unlike anything I had experienced. The shops and stalls had everything from vintage watches to fine handmade lace and giant mangoes. To really embrace Sri Lankan life we hopped in Tuk-Tuks back to the hotel for the final night. So, much, fun.

UNTIL NEXT TIME 
We had a tour guide - Richard. He was by far one of the most incredible humans I've ever met (along with our driver) who made the entire week beyond memorable. It was invaluable to have someone with us on the journey who was immersed in the history of Sri Lanka to discover the areas we visited. Our road trips took us to many destinations and opened my eyes to the mesmorising culture there. Words can't sum up the beauty that the country has to offer. 

I'm already planning my next trip there. 

In the week that I spent living in the dream-world that is Sri Lanka, I truly fell in love with a place more than I could ever have imagined. 

Take a trip to paradise with Thomson, just like I did from 7th Nov here
