Romantic Things for a Couple to do in Sri Lanka

Although it may seem like these activities can be done anywhere on the planet, there’s something special about doing them in this island paradise: a little local flavour that spices things up.

1

Re-discover Yourselves

Re-discover Yourselves

Try a luxury wellness resort that is off the beaten track; there are plenty of options once you start searching 2-3km away from the city centre. You will fall in love all over again, once the distractions of the outside world are taken away.

2

Couples’ Massage

Instead of the cheesy, movie-version, opt for the therapeutic Ayurvedic massage that most Sri Lankan resorts of repute offer. These practices have the force of thousands of years behind them and are about making us feel good overall, and not just for the moment.

3

Climb a Mountain

Climb a Mountain

Mountain lions climb the highest peak they can find to call out to their mate; if one answers, they are together for life. What better place to strengthen your bond than in a country where mountains and lion symbols abound? Try the Ella mountain hike, accessible even to beginners, and conquer the mountain together!

4

Bathe in a Waterfall

This Sri Lankan romance wouldn’t be complete without a splash in any one of a million waterfalls in the island. If the more famous ones are too crowded, pick any of the smaller falls along the main road and jump right in – nothing beats the exhilaration of standing underneath the crystal-clear water.

Candle-Lit Dinner

Candle-Lit Dinner

Round up the experience with a candle-lit dinner on a Sri Lankan beach. It will always be warm, and the wind will be robust, but the sky will be dazzling and bursting with stars and the succulent seafood will tantalize your taste buds. It will be a night to remember.
