The Golden Plovers believe in handcrafting each holiday, hence we provide a list of Mix & Match Activities that you can choose from. Alternatively, we have Readymade Tours in case one cannot choose from the listing. Although these packages are readymade, you can choose to add or remove any activity. That’s why we say handcrafted – as this applies to both Mix & Match Activities and Readymade Tours; both these can be viewed from our website (www.thegoldenplovers.com)

 

 

We take immense pride in delivering exceptional customer services. The team of The Golden Plovers consists of proficient personnel, who will offer their invaluable knowledge and creative ideas to you, so that the goal of “creating each holiday exclusively” is achieved, through constant communication.

*Price:

 Before we launched The Golden Plovers, we had conducted a survey, asking visitors of Sri Lanka about their stay and travel agents the type of service they have received from their ground handlers. Though not all were keen to share their price range, from those who were willing to tell us – we can guarantee that the price you would get with The Golden Plovers will be the best. You would think that because we offer the best prices in the market, we compromise with the quality offered. This is not true – with our best prices, you would get the best service too! This is one of the reasons we get high profiled customers, repeatedly.

 

*Hotel Purchasing Power:

 With regularly in communication with high profiled customers, the hotels/villas with whom we are associated with are 4 to 5 stars. Therefore, whatever are the requirements of our guests we would make the arrangements accordingly. Due the constant use of their services, most hotels we are affiliated with, have offered very competitive rates. To name some of the hotels we are associated with: Uga Escapes, Santani Wellness Resort & Spa, Gal Oya Lodge, Manor House Concepts, Rosyth Estate House, etc. We are also associated with 3 star hotels too, upon clients preferences.
