April 2nd - 13th 2018

City - Beach - Wildlife, Sri Lanka

From rainforests to ancient ruins, big cities to deserted beaches, this island paradise has it all! We uncover the best this place has to offer over 11 glorious nights or you can choose to join us for part of the journey. This roving retreat has been designed so you can tailor your ultimate adventure!

PART 1 = COLUMBO CITY April 2nd to 4th
From Heritage buildings to cosmopolitan eateries, a bustling seaside promenade and high rise buildings Columbo has become a must see for tourists. Behind the many faces of this city lies a rich and colourful history which you will soon discover on an afternoon stroll with our local friend Harold who grew up playing cricket on the very streets you'll walk down. Taste a freshly cut King Coconut or ‘Thambili’ as its locally known and engulf yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of the Pettah Bazzar while you walk down Main Street. Visit curiosities like the Largest Chandelier in South East Asia and view some of the ancient coins of Sri Lanka. The Grand Red Mosque better known as Jami Ul Alfar Mosque seem to truly transport you to another time. These are just a few stops you'll make on the walk before finishing with dinner at Harold's secret spot off the tourist trail.

PART 2 = DICKWELLA BEACH April 4th - 11th
We Journey to the South Western Coastline to the Islands most beautiful beach where a luxury 5 Star Ayurvedic Resort awaits. Ayurveda is India's ancient 5000 year old healing science which treats and prevents a range of health issues from anxiety to Alzheimers disease. After arriving and taking in your stunning surrounds you will have a consultation with the Ayurvedic doctor who will uncover your 'Dosha' or body type according to Ayurveda and prescribe your Spa treatments for the course of the stay.

The tempo of your day on retreat rests completely with you, in between delicious, nourishing feasts and spa treatments you have the option to participate in yoga and meditation twice daily, surf nearby Hiriketiya Bay with a left hand reef break for intermediate surfers or a fun beach break for beginners or simply rejuvenate and restore poolside with a good book.

The Nearby town of Galle is an unmissable stop on any Sri Lanka Itinerary. Be swept up by the sea breeze and the smell of fresh spices in the air as you meander down the laneways within the walls of Galle Fort. Quirky boutiques, bustling cafes and galleries are reflective of the ex-pat artists and poets and designers who have made Galle their home. Dutch colonial architecture from throughout the centuries will wow you at every turn in this buzzing, fully functioning town which has earned Unesco World Heritage status.


PART 3 = YALA NATIONAL PARK April 11th - 13th
A trip to Sri Lanka is not complete without a wildlife safari experience! Yala National Park is most famous for it's Leopard's with a density higher than anywhere else on the planet. Elephants, deer, bears and many other creatures also call Yala home.
