Luxuriant jungles, an extraordinary variety of flora, tea plantations laid out like lush green carpets and palm fringed beaches blend together to make this island one of the most beautiful in the world. It is thus not by chance that it has become to be known as “Serendipity”, a rare combination of unexpected pleasures. The unique treasures of an ancient culture steeped in Buddhism and the legendary hospitality of its inhabitants offer a truly memorable experience.
