Sri Lanka In Style was born in 2004 as a loose association for small luxury hotels, villas and service operators in Sri Lanka. Its aim was to provide a central platform from which we could all share resources, information and ideas, and market ourselves together as luxury travel specialists. In 2005 we set up a travel arm to handle incoming travellers to Sri Lanka. Today Sri Lanka In Style is firmly established as one of the leading travel companies in Sri Lanka. We are the local partner for some of the worlds top travel specialists and private travel designers. We are also proud to be the exclusive Virtuoso On-Site for Sri Lanka.
The company’s philosophy revolves around the concept of “traveling in style” which for us primarily means helping our clients connect with Sri Lanka in interesting and insightful ways. Style shouldn’t be confused with luxury although they often go hand in hand. Sometimes we consider a grounding, earthy experience such as camping or staying in a mud hut as ‘in style’ because it helps you connect with what is “different”, “real” and “true” about Sri Lanka. Our goal is that you return from your journey feeling rested, relaxed and pampered if that is what you seek, but also fulfilled and stimulated, with stories to tell friends and family of the wonderful things that you have seen, the people you’ve met along the way, and the experiences that you’ve had in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka In Style has specialist consultants for Australia and New Zealand, France, UK, Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Latin America, North America and a consultant dedicated exclusively to expats based in South Asia, South East Asia and the Middle East. Your enquiry will be attended to (in your local language) by one of our specialists.

We are a small team of people with a passion for travel. We love lounging around in our office in Colombo (with a steaming cup of pure Ceylon tea) and bouncing ideas off each other. Sri Lanka is so beautiful it blows people away – we don’t take credit for the natural beauty of the country and the genuine hospitality of its people.
We try to help you connect with everything we love about the country….

Rafa de la Torre – Travel Consultant (Spain)
Rafa has always had an adventurous spirit – from a young age he used to spend most of his weekends travelling around Spain and Europe, with nothing but his judo suit and backpack, attending competitions and later becoming a coach. This awakened in him a curiosity to discover new places, cultures and ways of life. An important judo tournament brought him to Asia for the first time, and it was then he realised that this was a continent he was fascinated by. It didn’t stop here – he then proceeded to seek out beautiful, hidden spots in Thailand, Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar and Malaysia, to name a few.
He was working in Bangkok writing travel articles for a newspaper based in his hometown of Granada when he met Miguel who inspired him to visit Sri Lanka. From the first day of being on the island, Rafa was “captivated” and realised there was so much to explore. His favourite area is the south, around Galle and Tangalle, and he is never happier than when enjoying dinner at the Sun House or Kahanda Kanda. He also loves taking walks through valleys, past waterfalls and lakes in the Hill Country which he considers to be “one of the most beautiful landscapes in Asia”.
