I think it sounds reasonable to me. When do you plan on emailing your save the dates? The only part that sounds like it could get confusing would be communicating to which guests what you would be providing (who gets rooming, who gets transportation, etc.). 

For the record I love the idea of the cinnamon and tea favors. I think the whale watching would be amazing but like the idea of a later in the day event for guests.

@rdownie1:  sounds awesome. I would suggest for a Destination Wedding you send the Save the dates a year before, this is what we did, you dont have to put venue on the save the dates just the city or country. We just put Phuket, Thailand. It gives people more time to plan and save.  But you may not have to send our your email url with the save the dates if it isnt ready?  You could send a later email after STDs?  The breakfast & whale watching sounds awesome.  I also think that the transport part of the arrangement is & will be quite confusing, most people expect to make their own way someplaces, maybe just arrange transport from the airport (but that might be hard with different flights arriving unless everyone arrives from the same place), and/or transort to the wedding itself from the main resorts.  If people choose to stay in other places you can’t be expected to pick them up from whereever. Also I havent sent out my invites yet but there are a lot of posts by others about how people are not RSVPing by the date and how stressful it is when you need to pay deposits so I suggest if your money has to be paid 3 months out I would suggest sending your invites out a bit earlier than 6 months or making the RSV date 4 months out not 3.

Sounds great!

Agree with traveller about the Save the Dates. We also gave over a year’s advance notice as it’s on another continent. I don’t know where you live but if going to Sri Lanka is $3000 or more p.p. (air ticket+accomodation etc.) and if your crowd is average, it might take some time for guests to save.
