Hi, I’m Shane Bayley, CEO and owner of Isle of Smiles, Sri Lanka. After leaving Sri Lanka at 9 years old and growing up in Australia, I traveled back to Sri Lanka after over 20 years. While traveling around and rediscovering my motherland, I decided to come back and start promoting travel services to Sri Lanka. Isle of Smiles was born.

Sitting on top of Sigiriya Rock Fortress in July 1996.

Since 1996, Isle of Smiles has organised the travel requirements for international visitors to our beautiful island of Sri Lanka – The Isle of Smiles. We initially started guided day tours for guests at The Plantation Villa Hotel near Hikkaduwa in 1996. Our very first guests were Uli and Ulriche Kohl from Germany. Soon after we started guided round trip packaged tours all around Sri Lanka.

Our first guests in 1996, Uli & Ulriche Kohl from Germany on a snokelling trip to Hikkaduwa Reef.

Today after more than 25 years, Isle of Smiles is still giving our guests exclusive, personal and attentive service in creating experiential, round trip, destination tours, packaged tours, wildlife safaris and other excursions.

Still welcoming guests after 25 years.

Whatever your Sri Lanka travel requirements are, we will assist you throughout your stay in Sri Lanka – The Isle of Smiles and help you create lifetime memories.

Shane Bayley
