Sri Lanka, with its impossibly friendly locals, world-class scenery, incredible cuisine and endless culture, is one of our favourite luxury cricket destinations.

What this pint-sized island may lack in size it more than makes up for in character, particularly when it comes to cricket. Talk about batting above your average – for a late bloomer in Test Cricket this tiny country has produced some of the world’s greatest players.

Go anywhere in Sri Lanka and you’ll be swept up in cricket fever.

Spectate tours to Sri Lanka are always memorable. This is a country renowned for its friendly spirit, and no matter where we are, we’re always greeted with a smile.

For first-time visitors to the island, we can’t wait to show you around Galle Fort, visit ancient temples, navigate the bustle of Colombo and journey up through Tea Country for some of the world’s very best photo opportunities.

There is so much to explore when it comes to Sri Lanka. The history, culture and wildlife can keep you captivated. Combine that with a cricket tour to Sri Lanka and you have a perfect holiday.

Discovering Sri Lanka outside of Cricket

Of course, there’s plenty more to discover beyond on a cricket tour with Spectate: thousands of years of history, jaw-dropping landscapes, world-class beaches, captivating cuisine, amazing shopping and endless adventure.

Awash with waterfalls, forested mountains, vibrant coastal cities and long palm-lined beaches – but just 341 miles across at its widest point – it’s easy to build an action-packed and varied tour in just a short space of time.

Thanks to our long-standing contacts on the island, we’re always among the first to hear the latest cricket news, so we can secure the best hotels, private hospitality and exclusive events.

Seasoned Sri Lanka travellers will be delighted to learn that we’re expanding our excursion and activity options on the island, and look forward to offering even more adventure on future tours to the Indian Ocean.

Tailor-Made Cricket holidays

Our travel expertise also extends beyond Sri Lanka, and we’d be delighted to help create a holiday extension to another paradise for some well-earned relaxation before or after your cricket tour – perhaps to the Seychelles, Maldives or Mauritius for a sun-kissed beach break. 

Everything You Need to Know:

What's included in my Sri Lanka cricket holiday?

Our Sri Lanka cricket holidays include guaranteed hospitality tickets for your chosen matches, plus transfers to and from the ground. You'll be staying at one of the country's fantastic luxury hotels, with a selection of meals, functions and celebrity-hosted events included. Your quote also includes return flights, and assistance in Sri Lanka from our tour manager and celebrity Host.  

Can I just buy cricket tickets from you?

We don't just sell tickets - we offer the entire travel experience. We'll take care of everything from flights and transfers to hotel stays and sightseeing excursions, plus the ultimate experience actually watching the cricket, of course! 

When will I receive my tickets?

We work closely with Sri Lanka cricket authorities to receive our tickets as soon as possible. Due to this, we advise Spectate clients that you will receive your tickets at least two days before your departure for the island. If you have any concerns or if you haven't received your tickets by this time, please contact our team as soon as possible.

How do you choose where Spectate clients sit at the cricket?

We've been visiting Sri Lanka for a long time, as have several of our regular clients. Over this time, we've listened to feedback and used our own experience to find the best sections in each of the country's top venues. We always endeavour to deliver the perfect viewpoint, whether it's looking towards the fort at Galle or behind the bowler's arm at Pallekelle. 

Will I have time away from the cricket to explore Sri Lanka? 

Sri Lanka is one of our favourite destinations, with an incredible amount of culture, history and breathtaking scenery to explore. All our tours include a selection of excursions and days at leisure to make the most of this fantastic setting - and each itinerary is flexible too, so you can completely personalise your holiday. Then, with access to the Inspiring Travel Company's travel expertise, we're able to curate the perfect post-cricket extension around the island, or beyond.

We'd like to watch a few days of the cricket, and then spend the rest of our holiday sightseeing. Can you help?

Yes! Every Spectate holiday is completely bespoke, so we work around your preferences. Whether you want to take in an ODI at the R Premadasa Stadium and then enjoy a few days sightseeing around Colombo, or take in the first crucial days of a Test at Pallekelle and then embark on a cultural tour taking in Kandy, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, we'll create the perfect holiday that packs in time to enjoy the island's famous beaches, sample spectacular cuisine (don't miss kottu roti!) and explore amazing history. We belong to the ITC Travel Group, so we specialise in creating the ultimate holiday - with as much cricket as you like to enhance it!
