Sri Lanka is now on every luxe-trotter's radar. It has amazing beaches, a turquoise sea, a tropical vibe at the coast and an interior that boasts some of the most beautiful scenery the world over. The wildlife is exceptional - from leopards, to elephants and blue whales - while the culture is rich and diverse. It is an island steeped in a history of contrasts and the result today is quite fascinating. It is also extremely good at 5-star luxury, in authentic style, and, at prices you can't afford to ignore. Now is the time to book your life-enhancing holiday in and around Southern Asia's most prodigious 'emerald isle'.
