You could choose to go for a couple’s massage at a local Ayurvedic spa where traditional medicine and ancient remedies will calm both body and mind. If sunbathing and ultimate relaxation are not what you had envisioned as part of your romantic getaway, water sports could be the key to your lover’s heart. With rides ranging from tame to thrilling, you are bound to have an experience you’ll never forget.
Further down south about 3 hours away from Colombo is the town of Tangalle. Here you will find the perfect blend of local mystery and ancient romance as you discover a myriad local wonders together.
Begin your day at the Mulkirigala Rock Temples also known as the Raja Maha Viharaya. Climb through rich foliage until you reach the astonishing temples here built at various times ranging from 3rd Century B.C. to the early 1800s around the time Sri Lanka was colonized by the British. Look closely and you will find inscriptions dating back to 6-7 Century AD. Feast your eyes on the well-preserved wall paintings in the caves depicting mankind indulging in forbidden fruit only to face eternal damnation. After the morning exploration, perhaps a sumptuous picnic lunch will be the respite you need after the trek through the various terraces of the Rock Temple.
