Travel . Tours . Adventure

Shashanka Perera started GetawayLanka to solve her Australian friends travel challenges. As a busy Mom in Sydney, She wanted to help her friends to see the true beauty of the country she was born.


Shashanka saw a niche opportunity in the Sri Lankan travel market to offer activity based tours to all travellers. Using a traditional travel agency didn’t help her as the travel agents could not keep up to date with the number of options available for their customers. In the process, She identified a pressing need for a one-stop online service that could reliably offer what travellers required when they want to visit Sri lanka. And thus, GetawayLanka was born.


As well as a unique ‘matchmaking’ system linking travellers with top Tour operators, Shashanka designed a series of rigorous standards and systems to ensure that only the best companies ever make it onto GetawayLanka Web site. Every Tour Operator was personally interviewed and must demonstrate exceptional knowledge and local contacts before they can join the GetawayLanka network.

With this exceptional process, GetawayLanka has helped travellers to complete their Dream Sri Lankan Holiday over and over again.

  • We went on the Honeymoon Tour and loved it. The guides were terrific, the hotels were top notch, exceeding my expectations. The Hotels in Nuwara Eliye had lovely large staterooms, good food and was an overall excellent experience. I would do the tour again one day.
