We’re pretty sure that this stunning location will give you the best of both worlds. A land rich with history, and home to some of the most incredible World Heritage listed sites, Sri Lanka needs to be on your family’s travel wish list this year. And we happen to have found a rather incredible place to stay while you’re there.
It’s a new year, and new adventures await – so why not embrace the thrill of exploring the globe, and give the kids one of the most incredible cultural experiences the world has to offer. Sri Lanka is a fascinating holiday destination, and this family-friendly resort will cater for your every whim. Welcome to Centara Ceysands Resort Sri Lanka!
You know a holiday is going to have a twist of adventure when arriving at your resort lounge involves crossing the Bentota River on a barge. The two minute water journey will get you to Aluthgama, which is on the inland side of the river – the other side is the unparalleled beauty of the Indian Ocean. The Centara Ceysands Resort takes full advantage of its fantastic location, and your family can take in views of the river, mangroves and ocean from many of the rooms.
Families have a wide range of accommodation options to choose from, including suites and family residences that are perfect for groups of up to three adults and two children. After making your family at home in the resort, you can choose how to indulge your senses.
The resort offers a huge selection of water sports to get the blood pumping – from jet skiing, sailing and canoeing to more gentle pursuits like snorkelling. If you prefer to swim in sheltered waters, Centara Ceysands Resort boasts the largest swimming pool in Sri Lanka!
There are two kids’ clubs available at the resort – a Camp Safari for younger children and the E Zone, which is aimed at teens.
Beyond the resort, there are some extraordinary experiences that can be organised by the staff at Centara. River safaris and mangrove tours will give the kids a new perspective on Sri Lanka, as will diving trips, a visit to the turtle sanctuary and swimming with blue whales. You can also give the kids a once-in-a-lifetime experience visiting the UNESCO World Heritage listed Fort Galle.
Rates at the Centara Ceysands Resort Sri Lanka start at $195 per night, and there are always special offers available at many of the Centara hotels and resorts.
