The impressive amount of World Heritage Sites, ruins and temples that talk of its history and culture also make the magical island a magnet for culture vultures.

And Resplendent Ceylon has done all the hard work for us by offering amazing, family-friendly getaways at three exquisite resorts. Created with all the necessary safety measures in place, the fully-inclusive deals are valid up until July 31 and range from an invigorating, adventurous break to a private, pampering getaway.
