Explore the historic northern province

An adventurous combination of historical, cultural, and geographical experiences is sprawled across the northern peninsula. Largely unexplored, the wonders of our vast region have lived through decades of strife yet remain beautifully preserved for all those who come upon them.

From the balcony of your room, you will observe how lagoons separate the peninsular lands of Jaffna, while our offshore islets share the ocean with India – on a clear day, their shores may even be seen from our own. Here, our northern heritage lives on through legacies of ancient kingdoms and cultures, scattered across causeways that lead you on journeys lined with palmyrah trees scraping the northern skies.
