From its glorious beaches to its awe-inspiring temples and delicious cuisine, the island nation of Sri Lanka is a feast for the senses. Enter our competition today to be in with a chance of winning an unforgettable ten-night stay for two people at the luxurious Reef Sri Lanka hotel

If you’re in need of some autumnal sunshine, look no further. We’ve teamed up with plush hotel Reef Sri Lanka – located south of Colombo, on one of western Sri Lanka’s most idyllic shores – to offer one lucky reader a relaxing ten-night break in paradise for two. After being rocked by the events in April, the ‘Teardrop’ island is firmly back on the road to recovery. Expect a warm welcome and a country which positively exudes heart and hospitality.

Nestled amid coconut groves and exotic gardens brimming with frangipani and hibiscus along the coast at Wadduwa, Reef Sri Lanka is perfectly positioned for a tropical hideaway. Artfully mixing colonial antiquity, traditional Ceylon aesthetics and old-world charm, days are best spent watching local fisherman from your prime spot on the sandy beach or practising yoga in the verdant grounds, before being preened and pampered in the Refresh Spa with a divine almond-oil massage.

You’ll be staying in the super-sized Lily Pond Suite, which is hidden among calming koi ponds and accessed by stepping stones. Inside, you’ll be greeted by an ornate, 150-year-old four-poster bed, heritage floor tiles and vintage punkah fans. In complete contrast to the 19th-century interiors, bathrooms are bang up to date, resplendent in sleek polished granite. Spend your evening soaking up the kaleidoscopic sunsets at beautiful beachfront restaurant Summer Breeze, which serves a delectable selection of seafood and local dishes. Think fresh-off-the-boat Sinhalese fish stew, peppered with meaty chunks of spiced mullet; sublime lobster thermidor; homemade crab ravioli; and baked crab with zesty papaya salad – all of which are standout. Should you at any point wish to leave the tranquillity of the main planation house, then the spellbinding 300-year-old Maha Vihara temple in nearby town of Wadduwa awaits, just a short twenty-minute tuk-tuk ride away. reefvilla.com
