Amazing trip to an Amazing Magical land
by Simpy Sharma
Sri Lanka is a really great place, so beautiful and charming. All the cities are nice, but in Hikkadiwa we fell in love with the country. It was like we were the only two people in Hikkaduwa. The hotels were all great. The sightseeing and the food options were massive and amazing. Cannot believe it is already time to go back home.

Sri Lanka is so close to home that I never thought of it as an exotic place to visit. But when HolidayMe suggested it, I said why not. I was skeptical at first, but it turned out grt. They planned a good trip. My fav place in the country has to be Kandy, wehre the beaches are less crowded and more clean. I loved the place and so did my kids. Quite nice. The hotel was not tht grt, and didn’t provide us with adjoining rooms. Our kids had to sleep in another separate room, so it was a bit worrying for us. But overall, the trip was great.

Awesome trip for two
by Karisma Mathur
Feeling great. HolidayMe suggested Sri Lanka as a honeymoon destination, and it was great. When we landed in Colombo, it was a great feeling. The discounts were also really great, so we r very happy. Hoping we can return some other time in the future.

Superb tour of Sri Lanka
by Nargis Kaif
Good trip planned by HolidayMe for us. It was a good trip and although a little on the epensive side, but we got to stay in all the best hotels all across. Hikkaduwa was the best 5 star resort we have been to.

Nice trip by HolidayMe, good planning by the company as far as sightseeing is concerned. Loved the hotels, and the one in Hikkaduwa was the best. Sort of a resort, we got cottages that opened out to the sea, so we had a lovely time. it was fun to walk the beaches at night, and fall asleep to the sounds of the waves.

Well done HolidayMe
by Carrie Moore
Feeling great on this trip. what a time we had in Sri Lanka, it was the best vacation we have had in a long long time. Hikkaduwa is a small island in Sri Lanka, and it is possibly the closest u will come to feeling in heaven. It is really a great place to relax for a while and just feel at one with the beauty of nature. I loved being here, and the only regret I have is that I only got to spend 2 days here,, it defiantly needs more time here. I wish HolidayMe has suggested that we spend longer here.

Beautiful Sri Lanka
by Roger Dudley
Lovely trip arranged by HolidayMe, and that too at a very modest price. The trip was cheap, but nothing else about it that was cheap. We got the best hotels and since the food and the sightseeing was included everywhere, we ended up paying for almost nothing but the shopping and some snacks at some places. Now what can be better than that? Sri Lanka is all beautiful, but Hikkaduwa was the place I fell in love with at first sight. It was an amazing discovery, not many tourists were there so we had the whole place to us almost.
