Great holiday and came home very happy
Just spent a 9 day trip to Sri Lanka with luxurious Sri Lanka . Jagathsingh made sure in that time we saw almost everything and didn’t have a minute off . He met us at the airport and dropped us off both in the middle of the night even staying till we checked in . He is thoughtful and empathetic and at one point booked us into a glamping safari but when dusk fell and there were insects all over the place and our daughter had a fit and couldn’t cope we rang him . Within minutes our guide mike turned up and took us to a 5 * hotel no questions asked. This is what really did it for us -no fights . I really feel that as so much was packed in it was too short a trip I would hope to return in future as some of the places we stayed were beyond belief in beauty. Lovely personalized service but do it only when one can take a longer holiday . Mike our guide and driver Tisza was caring and bought us lots of things to try.
Great holiday and came home very happy �
Thanks for making our holiday a memorable one
We are on our last day of a 10 days holiday in this magnificent country. Special thanks to Jagath and our sweet driver guide Nihal for their great hospitality. From the start the planning was smooth and Jagath was very prompt in reverting with a suggested itinerary based on our time and places we wanted to see. He was also very accommodating with the numerous changes we wanted to include like scenic train rides through tea plantation and along the coast from Galle to Colombo. We were also particularly impressed that Jagath met us both on arrival and at our departure at the airport albeit the odd hours. Our driver Nihal was always full of energy and made sure that we saw and bought what we wanted, surprising us with samosa and fruit juice for our train rides, always making the extra effort to make sure we are okay. Thanks for making our holiday a memorable one. We would definitely recommend Jagath and his team to fellow travelers to Sri Lanka. Keep it up guys!
They took such good care of us!
We had a great vacation with Luxurious Sri Lanka. Our guide Basil and the drivers were the sweetest. They took such good care of us! If your travelling through Sri Lanka and in need of a driver and guide, I strongly recommend Luxurious Sri Lanka.
We felt very welcome
Thanks to Luxurious Sri Lanka we had an amazing trip! Our guide was super nice, as well as the drivers and the organizer. We felt very welcome, and as a group op 10 we didn’t encounter any problem!
It was a 5 star experience
Where to start. We are heading home (2 adults and 2 children aged 11 & 13) after a fabulous 2 weeks. We were looked after from the second we arrived until the very last minute we left. The hotels where breathtaking, the scenery stunning and our personal driver (Basil) was utterly perfect. It was a 5 star experience. We can’t thank you enough Jagath. We took a sea plane from Colombo south and started at turtle bay hotel (idyllic location and excellent service). Whale watching in Melissa. Then to Yalla – jetwing – awesome swimming pool. Then Ella – 98 acres – set in a tea plantation on the top of a mountain. Then to Kandy. We saw elephants, monkeys, spice gardens, temples and all sorts of wildlife. A truly enchanting holiday.
We strongly recommend Luxurious Sri Lanka for a wonderful custom tour
Our family thoroughly enjoyed nearly 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. We are a retired couple and our working daughter joined us for most of it. Jagath had consulted with us thoughtfully and seriously and had prepared very well before our trip. During our holiday he kept in regular touch to ensure that everything flowed to our satisfaction, and made corrective changes to achieve any possible improvements. He certainly exceeded our high expectations. From the time I first contacted Jagathsingh Jayasingh – Managing Director of Luxurious Sri Lanka tours – he generated confidence. We planned with him for a few months via emails and phone. Ultimately we arrived in January to meet him and Basil his great driver/guide. Basil drove us all around in a very comfortable van and explained all we saw with very good English. Most of the properties that Jagath booked for us were boutique hotels with very few rooms. The rooms were large and luxurious and serviced by excellent staff. In some places we effectively had our own private chef to make all meals to our liking. The country is interesting and beautiful and we toured at our own pace. Generally we stayed in a hotel for 3 nights and saw all the surrounding sights, then moved on to another hotel, so that we were not rushing, unpacking and repacking every day. It also meant we could benefit from the services and views in each place. At one point when we decided to change locations a day earlier, Jagath rearranged it immediately. We strongly recommend Luxurious Sri Lanka for a wonderful custom tour. You can see our whole travel blog by searching for The Antipodean Adventurers Sri Lanka and then page through our recent trip to Sri Lanka with many pictures.
For a worry-free holiday book with Luxurious Sri Lanka
It’s taken me a while to write this review but I cannot say enough positive things about Jagasithsingh and the wonderful service he provided for us on our (too) short tour of Sri Lanka. He made sure that each step of the way we had great hotels and wonderful sightseeing tours. We had a beautiful, comfortable van and our driver and guide Basil was entertaining and knew the roads well. BUT do be aware that Sri Lanka offers so much to see it’s not possible to see so many places at once and truly enjoy all that this wonderful country offers. So conclusion, for a worry-free holiday book with Luxurious Sri Lanka, build in enough time to enjoy the wonderful hotels and the savor the country and the food. Thanks again Jagathsingh!!! Also, warrants a second, third perhaps a fourth trip back 😁
An experience that was made even more worth remembering
Just came back from beautiful Sri Lanka – an experience that was made even more worth remembering because of the great planning and support provided by Jagath and his team from Luxurious Sri Lanka. ‘The Weir House’ and ‘Calamansi Cove’ were perfect for the 3 of us (including my 15 month old daughter).
Exceeded all expectations
Absolutely fabulous two week tour of Sri Lanka organized by Jagath and Luxurious Tours. Many thanks to Basil and Mahmoud for their excellent driving and commentary. Exceeded all expectations. Thanks Jagath. Darryl and Tania from Melbourne.
They delivered what they promised in the itinerary!
My partner and I fully enjoyed our 11-day vacation in Sri Lanka, thanks to Jagath, Basil and Shayne for turning our dream to reality. It was a perfect holiday with a good balance of heritage, trekking, wildlife and beach. We just provided a basic list of places we wanted to visit and things we wanted to do, budget and duration to the team, and we were so impressed by the quick turnaround of a detailed proposed itinerary for our review. The team was also very patient in readjusting the itinerary until it is perfect to us. Most importantly, they delivered what they promised in the itinerary! I would strongly recommend my friends who have plans to visit Sri Lanka to contact Luxurious Sri Lanka, who put their customers at the heart in everything they do. Thank you Jagath, Basil and Shayne for such a wonderful, memorable holiday.
We will return!
Luxurious Sri Lanka provided us with an unforgettable three weeks in this wonderful country! We appreciated so much working together with Jagath in carefully planning our trip in advance and being met by him personally at the airport in Colombo in middle of the night. Much appreciation is also due to our wonderful driver and guide Basil, who awed us by mastering a variety of strenuous roads and terrain. But even greater thanks to Basil for sharing so much of his love and knowledge about the wildlife, flora and fauna of his country, as well as it history and culture. We learned so much from you, Basil, and you certainly enriched our whole Sri Lankan experience. We spent over two weeks touring Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Dambulla, Kandy and Ella and the National Parks Mihintale and Yala, among many other places. We were so impressed by great diversity of this impressive landscapes from jungles, to mountains to pristine seashore. We loved the elephants in Mihintale, the archeology and history of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, the fresco paintings at Dambulla and Sigiriya. Additional high points were the the visit to Thiriyaya and the oldest Buddhist stupa Girihandu Sera, the various ruins in the cultural triangle , the mountain views outside of Ella, and the impressive expanse of unbuilt beaches. We concluded our trip with a relaxing five days at the beach and a final tour tour through Colombo with Jagath before heading to the airport and home.
Great thanks Jagath and Basil! We will return!

Personalized and flexible service
Enjoyed a wonderful 12 day tour with Luxurious Sri Lanka. Personalized and flexible service. Driver, Lucky, was very helpful. Highly recommend traveling with the team.
The MD Jagathsingh is a most service oriented businessman
My family and I total six just completed a brilliant 12 days vacation in Sri Lanka. Traveling clock wise starting at Negombo and ending in Galle. I had stumbled on Luxurious Sri Lanka after searching for a tour guide on Trip Me. The MD Jagathsingh is a most service oriented businessman, ever obliging and flexible with our requested changes along the way. Jagathsingh had created a great itinerary covering all aspects of the wonders of the blessed country of Sri Lanka. My kids learnt so much during this vacation: to observe and respect culture, religion and the customs of the country we visit. Through the meals, the foods, the climbing and even the coconut stalls stops, we all had a wonderful time. Thanks mostly to Mr Basil R, whose English proficiency although not extremely high, has a good working level and understands the needs of his guests, drives most skilfully and obliges the kids who are often looking for western meals , preferring these to local Sri Lankan rice and curries. I worked with Jagathsingh on the itinerary over three months to and fro by emails, but the mutual patience and creativity bore fruits. Stupendous natural beauty of God given sand and seas, elevated tea plantations and the wild life, were all harnessed and captured in one fell swoop. My family has asked that I thanked both Jagathsingh and Basil for their complementary personal touches without which our vacation could not have been as awesome. May I share some great moments captured on our cameras. Highly recommended if you want a customized tour and point to point precision without the unnecessary shopping stops.
Myself and my parents would highly recommended this company to anyone
My parents and I have had the most incredible 18 days in Sri Lanka! Basil our driver was amazing and he helped us to see the best sights in Sri Lanka! Myself and my parents would highly recommended this company to anyone, especially if you want a stress free way of seeing the best of Sri Lanka!
Every aspect of our travel was expertly planned and our trip was a delight
We have just returned from an amazing 17-day holiday in Sri Lanka, organised by Jagath at “Luxurious Sri Lanka”, in conjunction with our Australian travel agent, Carole Grassby at “Travel on Q”. Every aspect of our travel was expertly planned and our trip was a delight. We were very fortunate to have an incredible guide and driver, Basil, and he ensured all our day-to-day needs were met and every hotel check-in and entry to monuments and national parks were taken care of, smoothly and efficiently. We particularly enjoyed the pace of our trip – it was quite leisurely, allowing us plenty of time to relax, go for walks and see a little more of this fabulous, diverse country. We can wholeheartedly recommend “Luxurious Sri Lanka” and suggest that use this company to design an itinerary for you to also explore this wonderful destination on your next holiday.
Everything about it was perfect
We have just returned from a 16 day tour of lovely Sri Lanka. We were extremely satisfied with the tour organised by Luxurious Sri Lanka. Everything about it was perfect. The driver, hotels, food and activities were all amazing, thank you Jagathsingh and Basil. We would highly recommend this company to anyone contemplating a trip to this lovely Island.
Really satisfied by the tour agency’s hospitality and professional arrangement
Went for a 9D7N trip during December and was really satisfied by the tour agency’s hospitality and professional arrangement. Sri Lanka is indeed an immensely beautiful country with very diverse attractions in spite of its small size. Jagath (plus the driver Mr Basil) was very accommodating – given that I am a solo traveler – and I do appreciate that he was constantly checking on me during the trip itself. Would definitely recommend if you are considering paying Sri Lanka a visit
Can’t wait to return!
Thank you for organising our first trip to Sri Lanka. We had an amazing week and can’t wait to return!
The service is excellent!
Again we had such a great time in Sri Lanka! Our journey, business and pleasure, was perfectly organised and we always felt very well taken care of. The service is excellent! And very, very personal. You can experience the real Sri Lanka, going to such amazing places, having the best guides on the spot. The small things make it even better! Learn to eat local food and taste fruit at the Sunday market! Visiting secret places and enjoy the most fantastic views! Wow! Luxurious Travel is such an incredible travel agent, from beginning to end. We cannot thank Jagath and his crew enough for the hard work, expert advice and guidance. Thanks and see you soon!
