CV Villas has added properties in Sri Lanka to its portfolio.

The country was among the additions to the UK’s travel corridor list this week, but still has an international travel ban in place.

CV Villas has added 15 villa properties in the island nation to its collection and said it has “more in the pipeline”.

All offer a daily cook service included in the price (ingredients are extra), as well as airport transfers.

The company has also put together a range of excursions together so packages can be booked with flights, transfers, accommodation, excursions and in-villa cook service.

A spokesperson said: “Sri Lanka is less of a ‘fly and flop’ destination than CV Villas’ other destinations. The vision is that guests will wish to incorporate an element of cultural touring, either before their villa stay or as a day’s sightseeing excursion from their villa.”

A sample 15-day itinerary features the Cultural Triangle of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla; the UNESCO-listed Sigirya Rock Fortress complex; the tea plantation region of Nuwara Eliya; Yala National Park and a villa stay. It costs from £3,270 per person.
