Sri Lanka is home to three of the finest 18 hole championship Golf courses in Asia. These golf courses are The Royal Colombo Golf Club, The Victoria Golf in Kandy and Nuwara Eliya Golf Club respectively. The scenery in and around the courses are of great beauty and variety. The golf courses running through the untouched jungle and bush, the flying golf ball always seen in the background rich green canopy. Since Sri Lanka hasn’t been known in the perspective of a major golf playing destination, the fairways in these Golf courses most often remain calm.

Type of Accommodation
As there is so much to see and do in India during the day, therefore, everyone deserves a good night sleep. We choose quality accommodation according to the category you are travelling in, based on providing a place of rest that offers not only comfort but also an authentic experience rather than staying in a hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Every hotel might be different according to location, amenities and services. While selecting hotel we consider great location, private bathroom facilities and air-conditioning to name few.
Comfort: 3-star hotels offering basic and clean private facilities.
Deluxe: 4 Star hotels, Palaces and Heritage properties offering above average to very good facilities.
Luxury: 5-star hotels, Palace and Heritage properties offering a full range of facilities and exceptional services with a unique feature.
The cities which do not have more choice of hotels, the best suitable category of hotel is provided.
It is also possible to take a combination of comfort, deluxe and luxury accommodation in one itinerary.
Nepal being adventure destination, choices of accommodation are limited hence basic 3* or best available hotel in the itinerary except at some location where 4* and 5* hotel options are offered.
In Bhutan itinerary basis 3* hotel accommodation is used unless requested.
