Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    Kitulgala has been famous for being the location where the award winning classic movie “Bridge on the River Kwai” directed by David Lean was filmed. The picturesque location of the movie by the river is accessible to all visitors.

    The stretch of Kelani River 5km upstream from the village of Kitulgala provides seven grade two and three rapids for white water rafting. The upper section is suited to the experienced white water rafting adventurers. The lower section is suited for the beginners of white water rafting. In between the rapids are few calm stretches of 6.5 km Kitulgala run that takes about 90 minutes to complete. Each rapid brings off its own distinctive character. Their colourful names-Head Chopper, Virgin's Breast, Butter Crunch, Killer Fall and the Rib Cage- could perhaps carry indications as what to expect.

    White water rafting (5km) • Canyoning (Trekking, sliding and confidence Jumping are activities that can be engaging in.

    Tour of Sri Lanka with children
    I heard about Subha from an acquaintance and contacted her to help us get from Colombo to Hikkaduwa. We are travelling with children age 5 and 7 and it was important to us to have a safe journey. Subha arranged for a car to pick us up next morning. Great service and quick reply, even though we contacted her as late as the night before. Hiran, the driver, was warm and welcoming and made the trip a good experience. Our good impression with Subha resulted in a tour around Sri Lanka for 6 days, one week later. The communication was good prior to the trip and she adjusted the itinerary several times based on our feedback. The tour itself was good, though some of the hotels were not up to standard. Subha has gotten feedback on this and said she would revise her list. The sights were interesting and we really got to see a lot of Sri Lanka during the 6 days. Our driver Sangeeth was a safe driver and welcoming. His English was very good. All in all we are glad we got to hear about Subha and her team and would recommend her to other travellers wishing to see Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka Tour
    Subha helped our family organize a tour around in Sri Lanka. Several times she adjusted our plans after our requests, and she hired a car and a driver, who picked us up in the airport, and really took care of us on our tour. Everything just worked out fine. We can definitely recommend using Subha and her travle agency.

    Sri Lanka tour and yoga retreat
    Subha arranged a yoga retreat for myself and two friends. It was amazing how organized the whole trip was. We didn't need to worry about anything, and there was plenty of opportunity to be spontaneous about things we wanted to do. She even met us during the trip to make sure that our trip was up to our expectations. I can not recommend her enough. Thank you. You made our trip so memorable.

She even visited with us while we were in Colombo. Very sweet! Taxi drivers were top notch; good communication, safe driving, friendly and helpful. Hotel selections were within our budget and absolutely lovely! We are looking forward to our next stay...

    Great planning and very good communication
    Subha will help you plan a great holiday in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. We went for a 5 night trip in Sri Lanka and 8nights in the Maldives. She took care of everything from airport pickup, hotel accommodation, restaurant reservations (also prepared me a birthday cake surprise!), train reservation. For the Sri Lankan tour our guide and driver was Hiran, you can safely ask Subha to book him for you, you will have a very nice tour.

    Perfect Planning From Start to Finish
    We didn't know whether we were going to be able to go on holiday until the last minute so contacted Subha at Sonrisa Holidays with only a few days notice. Despite the limited time she managed to put together a tour for us which massively surpassed our expectations. All the accommodation she chose fitted our request of small, clean and friendly and the pace of the tour was just perfect with none of the travel being too long. Our driver was careful, safe and informative and the range of sights and activities couldn't be bettered. Subha kept contact with us throughout the tour to make sure everything was going well and that we were happy. We really could not have made a better choice and would recommend Sonrisa Holidays to anyone looking to tour Sri Lanka.

    Assistance in planning Sri Lankan holiday most helpful
    I had trawled through a guide book and had a notion of how to fill in three weeks touring the island and then approached Sonrisa ( Subha) to discuss my thoughts. She was most helpful in this direction and booked the hotels. Also she arranged for an official tourist guide/driver to cover the first two weeks of our holiday who proved invaluable.

    Perfect holiday and honeymoon
    I planned my sister's honeymoon with Sonrisa holidays and could not rate them highly enough. In the planning Subha was so helpful and did everything she could to get the bookings we wanted. The honeymoon was fantastic, having a driver in Sri Lanka helped us see so much of such a beautiful country, and the hotels were amazing. Thoughout the trip Subha kept in contact to make sure everything was ok. Would really recommend visiting Sri Lanka and Sonrisa holidays do everything to make sure your visit is a holiday to remember.

    I booked a tour with Sonrisa holidays and it is one of the best moves I ever made! Subha is truly professional and genuinely cares about the trip she organises for you. The hotels picked were of a superb standard and the driver provided was courteous and able. Our whole holiday went like clockwork. I must add that i have been back to Sri Lanka and met up with Subha and her husband and baby daughter. Subha has that magic touch of becoming a friend whilst being your tour organiser. I never met anyone so well suited for their job. If you are thinking of taking a trip then ask Sonrisa Holidays to sort it for you.

    Systematic Very well organised !
    In April, last year, my husband and I went on our honeymoon trip to sri lanka and maldives for about 10 days..The trip arranged by Subha and her team was very well organised. It was very easy to communicate with her via email and the trip was arranged exactly as per our requests; including arrangements for our visas and air tickets. Making payments to them was easy as well. Our onward trip to Maldives was also very well taken care of. We were also assigned a very experienced and knowledgeable driver Mr.Silva - who took us around sri lanka by road very safely.We would definately recommend Sonrisa Holidays to anyone planning a trip to Sri Lanka.

    By chance...
    I was looking for an exotic place to travel and I decided on Sri Lanka. As I looked at websites etc. by chance I happened upon Sonrisa Holidays. I liked the name and the logo, so I contacted Subha. From the beginning she was professional and completely reliable. I told her my budget and what I wanted to do, I said a little beach, and a lot of history. I said I don't want to make any decisions once I get off the plane. True to her word, our adventures began when my friend and I were picked up at the airport and driven to our hotel. We had a driver and a guide. I don't think you want to wing it when you travel to foreign countries. We stayed at a variety of hotels and each day was a new adventure. We went to stupas and shrines, batik shops and herbal gardens, we went to a gorgeous beach and a turtle hatchery.... we rode in a tuk-tuk and we still laugh at some of the things we did when we get together and reminisce. One day I'll get back to Sri Lanka ... We had a wonderful trip thanks to Subha and her team at Sonrisa Holidays. I have since recommended her to other friends who have had the same experience.
