Want to know how to reach Sri Lanka from Mumbai? Then, read through our below guide to have a hassle-free journey.
With a bevy of flight provided by Srilankan Airlines, Air India, and Jet Airways, tourists can book nonstop flights from Mumbai to Sri Lanka. Besides that, airlines, like: IndiGo, Air India, and SpiceJet also provide their services through connecting flights. Though, one can opt for a train route to cover the Mumbai to Sri Lanka distance, but it is not a practical option. Mumbai to Colombo flights without layover take about 2 hours 30 minutes, and get a chance to enjoy the sightseeing of several tourist attractions including national parks, beaches, Buddhist temples, and museums.
Let's take a detailed look at the different mediums of transport to reach Sri Lanka from Mumbai conveniently.
Mumbai is one of the major airports with direct connectivity to travel from India to Sri Lanka. Situated about 30 kilometers from the main city of Colombo, the Bandaranaike International Airport which is the only international airport in the country. There are direct flights from all the major cities of India, and Mumbai ranks among them as well. Tourist can opt for a direct connecting flight or an indirect one as well. In fact, Srilankan Airlines have direct flights operating from the city of Mumbai as well. Express airport services are being provided to all the people who plan to reach the country. Mumbai to Sri Lanka flight duration is about 8 hours for connecting flights, so one can choose to book a non-stop flight without any worries.
It is not a viable option to take a Mumbai to Sri Lanka train. However, traveling within Sri Lanka by train works out to be the best option to explore the breadth along with the width of the country. Nothing is going to match the breathtaking views of the landscapes that are part of a rail trip. Though land transport is slow when you compare it to the air mode, the pace of it is slow which helps you catch a glimpse of the city in your own sweet manner.
For long you have been craving to have a glimpse of Sri Lanka, but never have had an opportunity to do so. Well, the chance is going to arrive soon and the best part is that you would not need any form of advance planning. In recent times the ministry of roadways in India has gone on to announce the construction of an amazing tunnel (sea) between both the countries. The total cost of the project is estimated to be a whopping 2400 crores. Currently the option of reach the country is a 3-hour flight from Mumbai or a 45-minute ferry drive from Rameshwaram. One thing is for sure, it is really going to raise the bar of cross tours in the country.
Apart from the aforementioned options, one can opt for a Mumbai to Sri Lanka cruise which takes about 2 days to reach Colombo. It is an ideal option for families and honeymooners looking to enjoy onboard entertainment along the voyage.

Trip to Sri LankaMy recent trip to srilanka was done right thank you so much travel triangle and Aziz Travels for quoting me best price. My Chauffeur & guide Mr. Saman was really helpful and friendly, He was very knowledgeable person and able to give insights on everything. Had an incredible time in srilanka, One must visit this beautiful Island. I'll rate travel triangle 4 out of 5 and Aziz travel 3.5 out of 5.
Trip to Sri LankaIf entry vouchers were included it will be good.I feel 3 rd day travel was long,so the hotel should be booked in nuwara eliyia and not in ramoda. First day and last day hotel was good . Inbetweeners it was ok.

Trip to Sri LankaGreat service...Thanku for arranging everything very well ,thsnku... best car driver ever.
Trip to Sri LankaAllocated Driver is really bad. He is expecting and trying to force us to do about which he is thinking. He was taking us only where ever he has some contacts. I believe he will get some money(commission) on thoae places. He was also not paying the bill for his food and without informing us he just added his food bill with ours. Really we felt very bad.
Trip to Sri LankaRoshan, the driver cum guide was excellent. His knowledge of the area, driving skills , politeness, interactive behaviour, punctuality is praiseworthy. Ranuka, who interacted prior to the trip and during the trip is to be commended for his quick responses and positive suggestions. The 6 - 7 hours of driving in the road was not factored into the time and space planning. One had to to check in late evening and check out next day, which gave very little time to wander around the city of Kandy as well as Bentota. We couldn’t enjoy the ambience of the sea at leisure as most of the time was spent on the road. One should have been advised of the travel time from place A to B. Otherwise it was a good trip. The cleanliness of the country, the excellent condition of the roads, the traffic discipline is really praiseworthy as also the politeness and friendliness of the people.
Trip to Sri LankaThe hotel Rivi Ras in Colombo was hard to find and there was no power when we reached. The hotel didn't have power back up. We waited for 2 hours in the night before we were adjusted in Ranveli Beach Resort. The hotel was dirty, bathrooms were smelly and mosquito infested. The last hotel Hamilton View in Colombo was a homestay and was bad. The entrance was dark and not suitable for families with kids. They have a cat which is not vaccinated for Rabies. The hotel was also very hard to find and we had to hurriedly stay I'm a hotel arranged by the driver. The hotels in Mirissa and Ambalangoda were fine and as described. The stays at Colombo and Negombo was extremely ill organised. Beautiful beaches at Mirissa and Ambalangoda with it's golden White sand and Rocky beaches. Sigiriya rock and Dambulla Caves we're also mesmerising. Sri Lanka is extremely clean with no litter in sight. A very beautiful country with exotic locals and European feel.
Trip to Sri LankaOverall trip was good but with a few sour moments. Also as mentioned in the inclusions we weren't provided with bed decorations and honeymoon cake, this was not expected
Trip to Sri LankaIt was an excellent planning and support provided by the Daya Holidays team. Special mention to the planner & co-ordinator Madumalee who has covered all the places we wanted to visit in the short trip of 4 days. The Vehicle provided for the journey was excellent & the hotel bookings were good with minor hiccups here & there but rectified on notice. The plan was well executed by the Chauffer Sheryl who was along with us for the entire trip right from picking up us from the airport till send off at the mid night after 4 days. Few cons are : We Couldnt see a glimpse of our travel insurance as assured... Water Bottles, Sim cards and other things which are mentioned immediately available at airport are not immediately available. However we have followed up to receive the same. Overall it was a good experience :-)
