My girlfriend and I are getting married in September, and are trying to decide where to spend our honeymoon. My girlfriend would like some luxury, some pampering and quite a lot of being by a beach and away from lots of other tourists. I would also like to be away from lots of other tourists, am happy with a bit of beaching but also want a bit of adventure and exploration. Combining this, we thought that Sri Lanka might be the answer. What do you think??? Is September/October a good time to visit?
It will probably be for about 2 weeks, and we are happy to move around a little bit. Ideally we would probably stay in 2 or 3 places (any more than that and my girlfriend will complain that it is not relaxing enough...) For accommodation, we obviously want something special but not really part of a resort. Ideally we want a little hut on a fairly remote beach but also want it to be a bit fancy (not too ramshackle). We probably want it to be all-inclusive for some of the time (although that is not a necessity). We will also want to do some activities (trips into the forest, snorkelling, etc).
Our budget (excluding flights) is about £1000 ($1650) each. Does this seem reasonable?
