So here are some of the best honeymoon destinations in Sri Lanka along with prime locations for the happy couple to visit, and also the best hotels in the area that I recommend during your romantic getaway at Sunny Sri Lanka!   Colombo Picture credit - Anuradha Dullewe Wijeyeratne, The country’s commercial capital is the ideal location for an urban honeymoon. The city can offer you all the luxuries you need to spend your honeymoon in the most classy way. Colombo is the city which has a variety of different hotels and shopping destinations to choose from. Some of the best things to do in Colombo are: Shopping at prime locations such as: Majestic city, Odel departmental store – Townhall and Crescat Boulevard and Liberty Plaza. Enjoy romantic and peaceful walks at Viharamahadevi park (formerly Victoria park) or enjoy the beautiful 3D road paintings at Diyata Uyana. Dine in some of the best and classy restaurants in Sri Lanka.

If you head to this beautiful hilly city of Sri Lanka which is four hours away from Colombo you would be astonished as to how the entire surrounding and climate would change during that short period of time. You'd be dazzled by the green mountains, colorful flowers and lush vegetation that surrounds Nuwara Eliya. This is an ideal location if you want a quiet and calm honeymoon where you can simply relax and unwind. Here are some suggestions of things to do to engage you and your significant other on a beautiful adventure in Nuwara Eliya. Go on a long 6 hour hike at the Hortain Plains National Park and Reserve and witness the ever famous "World’s End" which is a 4000 ft. drop off a cliff, and also witness the variety of flora and fauna that surrounds the park. Even though you are signing up for a bit of strain on your legs, to be with nature out in the open is definitely something you must not miss out on. Admire the beauty of a number of waterfalls including the Devon falls, St. Clair's falls and the Lovers' Leap waterfall Treat yourself to a yummy strawberry treat and witness how this amazing fruit is grown at a number of Strawberry gardens around Nuwara Eliya. Are you a fan of all things dairy ? Then surely the New Zealand farm is a location that you must visit. You'll be able to see how dairy is produced and also have a taste of the most delicious fresh milk and cheese in Sri Lanka. Witness how beautiful flowers can be at the Hakgala Botanical Gardens. The garden has one whole area dedicated for roses. How romantic, right? Enjoy a peaceful walk and go on a boat ride at the Gregory lake park situated in the heart of the beautiful hill city.

There are plenty of locations for you to choose from like Trincomalee up north or Galle down South with gorgeous beaches, resort, spas, and more. Kalpitiya is also a great option if you're in the mood for fun activities like whale watching, kite surfing, diving, and fishing.

No matter where you choose to go, you should have your pick of luxury hotels, budget hotels and private villas.

Genting Highlands is another attraction that is worth an overnight stay. Shopping in Malaysia can be an expensive affair, or dirt cheap, depending on where you choose to shop. If you and your spouse are foodies, Malaysia should be at the top of your “must-visit” countries because it is a Muslim majority country.

  • Need A Halal-Friendly Island Getaway? Here Are 5 Islands Ideal For A Halal Food Experience

    One of the biggest concerns when travelling is being able to find food that you know, without a doubt, is Halal. Of course, one can adapt to either being a vegetarian or on a seafood diet for a few days, but there is nothing more relaxing during a holiday than the assurance that when you get hungry, you don’t have to think twice about what you put in your mouth. While travelling in a Muslim country undoubtedly has that satisfaction, the idea of an island holiday conjures up images of cocktails and bars on the beach, plenty of tourists in their swimwear, and thus, a questionably sourced meat dish. What if it didn’t have to be like that though? What if you could have the comfort of knowing that while you are enjoying an incredible island vacation, you didn’t have to worry about your meals because they are all Halal? This is not just a myth or a fantasy, but a reality. Here are 5 islands around the world with plenty of Halal food: Credit -   1) Zanzibar, Tanzania  In this island with a Muslim majority, finding nearby Halal food is not a problem. The cuisine of Zanzibar reflects its history as the countries that colonised it played a major role in influencing the food present on the island today. Imprints of the Portuguese can be seen with their use of maize and pineapple in their cuisine; Indian influences are greatly visible in biryani, samosas, pakoras, chutneys and so on; and Oman brought in the spices and nuts. Zanzibar is the perfect spot for a Muslim-friendly honeymoon, with beautiful private villas and beaches, and quaint traditional places to dine in. The House of Spices started as exactly that – a distinguished house in Zanzibar Stone Town, where spices were collected and exported – and is a charming rooftop restaurant today where you can enjoy their delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Tea and coffee are served on the ground floor, along with spices and a gift shop. The House of Spices is not to be confused with Spice Town in Meliá Zanzibar, an hour’s drive from Stone Town, which serves a mix of international cuisine with palatable Arab and African influences. If you are looking for a more adventurous lunch experience, look no further than The Rock, aptly named as it is located on a rock in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Originally a fisherman’s post, it can be found on Michanvi Pingwe beach on the southeast coast of the island. Your journey to savouring their seafood specials begins with a short boat ride to your destination.   2) Maldives  While Maldives is definitely an island for an unforgettable Muslim Honeymoon, who says it can’t also be one of the best beach vacations for Muslims? Move over honeymooners, we all want a piece of those incredible azure waters! Maldives are a group of Muslim-friendly islands since the majority of the population is Muslim, and while that can work in your favour, it is also important to realise that as a major tourist destination, they might serve pork and alcohol in some resorts and hotels. So it’s worth checking beforehand or simply informing the hotel of your preferences. Here are some resorts that do have halal meals available though, and either no alcohol on the premises or will remove the minibar on your request: Conrad Rangali, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, Six Senses Laamu, Jumeirah Vittaveli, Shangri La Villingili, Cheval Blanc Randheli, The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, The Residence Maldives, Soneva Fushi Maldives, Ayada Maldives, Zitahli Kuda-Funafaru Resorts & Spa, Amilla Fushi, Viceroy Maldives, The Naladhu Anantara Resorts, and Cocoa Island by COMO Of course with over 60 islands to its name, it’s possible that we may have missed a few! The best part about these resorts is not just freedom with food and drink, but also complete privacy at the villa and pool – which of course makes it the perfect Halal honeymoon packages or as one of the best holiday destinations for Muslims. If it is regular restaurants that you seek, try Bombay Darbaar or Tandoori Flames in Hulhumale for Indian or Pakistani cuisine; The Sea House – Maldives or Lemongrass Fifth in Male for delicious seafood or local cuisine, Family Room Café in Hulhumale for a great coffee shop; or Pizza Mia in Male for some scrumptious pizza for some of the Halal food in Maldives.   3) Langkawi, Malaysia  Langkawi itself is an archipelago of around 99 islands off the west coast of Malaysia. With stunning scenic beauty, powder-fine sandy beaches, and some of the most flavoursome food in the world, here is a beautiful island for an unforgettable Muslim holiday! Imagine your delight when you can stuff your face with absolutely anything and not have to worry about it being Halal. You can find great hummus, kebab, grilled meat and more at Yasmin Restaurant, where they serve authentic Arab cuisine. Since good Arabic food is hard to come by outside Arab countries, make the most of this! Hit up Nasi Dagang Pak Malau for credible Malaysian cuisine – food you can enjoy with a view of the paddy fields even if it is pouring with rain (which it would since it rains for about 9 months of the year here).  Nasi Kandar Tomato has some of the best food at the cheapest prices and can be dined at 3 times a day if necessary! MY French Factory is the place to seek for something different – delicious fluffy crepes and waffles – and is a must-try before you leave. Don’t forget that you can also locate Halal food by using your mobile, and be sure to leave a Halal food review so that others can enjoy too.   4) Lombok, Indonesia  Lombok is one of the most Muslim-oriented islands for tourism, unlike its counterpart Bali, not too far away. With the call to prayer that can be heard all around the island due to the number of mosques (Lombok is called the island of a 1000 mosques for this purpose), Qur’ans available in every hotel room, and MTV removed from the list of channels, you can’t get it better than this. Lombok also has some of the best coral reefs, being untouched by man, which makes it one of the islands for an unforgettable Muslim honeymoon – if you’re looking for a little adventure. Whether you are on a Halal honeymoon package or not, Muslim couples, families and vacationers can enjoy one of their best beach holidays, sipping mocktails – the non-alcoholic version of a cocktail – and savouring delectable delights. Since Indonesian cuisine must not be missed out on, try Taliwang Alam Nyaman, Roemah Langko, and Taliwang Irama for incredible food and service. El Bazar Café and Restaurant is great if you’re looking to change things up a bit with Mediterranean food. You can find more Halal food online, and don’t forget to use the HalalTrip app to share your finds.   5) Sri Lanka  Even though Sri Lanka’s population is primarily Buddhist, many of the areas along the island that are Muslim-majorities have Halal food freely available, and the capital city of Colombo are hosts to a great number of Halal-certified restaurants. The Eastern provinces of Sri Lanka – namely Batticaloa and Trincomalee – are predominantly Muslim areas, and thus have a plenty of Halal food. The seafood found here is also excellent, and incomparable to what you would find otherwise on the island. Many of the cities on the west coast – like Colombo, Kalutara, Beruwala, Puttalam, Jaffna and Mannar – also have large populations of Muslims, and so eating out is a fairly easy task. Look for Halal-certified restaurants, or the next best thing – women in headcover (Hijab) dining at a restaurant. If you on the food scene in Colombo, you will notice that Muslims swarm eateries in hoards, so take that as your certification of what’s Halal! Almost all the beef in Sri Lanka are only undertaken by Muslims so you know it comes from the right source, and most fast food joints especially in Colombo are Halal. Hotels, too, serve pork separately out of respect to the requests of their Muslim guests. Join the crowd at the newly opened Taco Bell in Colombo 7, dive into delectable seafood cuisine at Lagoon Restaurant at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, satisfy your local food cravings at 12am at the most popular joint in Colombo – Pilawoos, or settle for Indo-Chinese food from Elite. The world is your oyster. Island vacations are prefect for honeymooners but are not limited to them. So take this guide into consideration before you plan your next Halal travel or book your Halal tour with Halal Trip. There is nothing better than the beach, sun, and Halal food on holiday!  ...
