Experience a Sri Lanka you won’t get from a guidebook, while staying at our hotel. Let yourself be charmed by the originality and diversity of our beautiful island. To that end, we have put together a handpicked selection of the most beautiful destinations for you. In line with our Green Philosophy, we place great emphasis on eco-tourism and sustainability while organizing our tours – so that nature and historic buildings can remain preserved and as impressive as we found them, and the local inhabitants are not disturbed in their daily lives.
Yala National Park – the kingdom of the leopards
The national park is located only 14 kilometres away from the Thaulle Resort and can be very easily visited before or after an Ayurvedic cure. Half- and full-day tours can be booked directly online or at the hotel. We will gladly help you choose the perfect trip.
Kataragama – a spiritual trip
Architectural highlights such as the Temple Kiri Vehera and the shrine Maha Devale will captivate you, as they have thousands of visitors and believers before you. Marvel at the animal inhabitants of Kataragama that so naturally people the streets here: the slender langur monkeys which, in Hindu mythology, embody the god Hanumam, and the magnificently decorated temple elephants. Everywhere you see the so-called “Bodhi Trees” – reminiscent of the fig tree under which Buddha, according to legend, came to knowledge. We would be happy to procure a professional guide for you to explore the holy city. You can book your spiritual excursion already, long with your stay with us.
Kirinda Beach – an oasis of tranquility
Impressive evidence of the nature of Sri Lanka is offered at two nearby nature reserves. Discover the Udawalawe National Park, 60 kilometres away, on a safari tour and be close up to its wild elephants feeding. In just 25 minutes from the hotel, guests can reach the Bundala Bird National Park: flamingos, pelicans, kingfisher and hornbills and numerous other exotic species of birds will make the hearts of bird lovers beat faster here. On request, we can organize transport and guides in both parks.
To visit one of the attractions in the area of the Thaulle Resort, you need not leave the hotel at all. You can enjoy the view of the beautiful Yoda Lake directly from our garden. Watch as sea eagles hunt for fish or water buffaloes move through the lake.
