Adventures in Sri Lanka

Escape to the beautiful tropical island of Sri Lanka. It has something for everyone – palm-fringed golden beaches, cool hill stations, tea plantations, lush rainforest, wildlife, ancient cities, Buddhist temples and colourful festivals.

This year we have not one but two Sri Lankan hotels for you – one at the beach and one in the city.

Hemas Leisure has generously donated a four night stay at the Lantern Boutique Hotel.

Lantern

Lantern is located along the white sandy beachfront and turquoise waters of Mirissa. It features an outdoor pool and the restaurant serves local and international delights.

We also have three nights courtesy of the Hilton Columbo Hotel.

Hilton Columbo

The hotel is five minutes walk from the beach and overlooks the Indian Ocean.

Guests can relax with an award-winning cocktail by the outdoor pool bar or enjoy the hot tub after an active workout at the fitness centre or tennis courts.

Dining highlights include local specialities at the open-air Curry Leaf restaurant and Sri Lanka’s only trattoria, Il Ponte, offers home-made pasta.

Hilton Colombo Hotel is within walking distance of the shopping and dining options at Fort District and Pettah Bazaar.

Prize summary:

  • Four night stay at the Lantern Boutique Hotel, superior room with breakfast
  • Three nights at the Hilton Columbo, double room with breakfast
