Resplendent Ceylon Journey- Tea, Sea & Safari

11 day Complete Journey Across Ceylon

The Resplendent Sri Lanka Journey typically starts with Tea Trails, then Wild Coast and finally Cape Weligama. It could also be done in reverse or if time does not permit the full circuit, pick two resorts perhaps. The minimum recommended stay is 2 nights at each resort, but 3 nights is ideal to unwind fully. Typically, travellers spend longer at Cape Weligama as the final stop before leaving Sri Lanka.

Then feast on the all-inclusive, scrumptious gourmet meals. Wake up at one of our 5 gorgeous villas to exquisite, misty mornings and chilly weather. You can either join a guided tour of our tea factory, producing globally-famous Dilmah Tea, or simply appreciate the views of the lake, walk in our lush, green tea estates.

Journey to Wild Coast for 3 nights

The lodge is nestled between the unfenced edge of Yala National Park and untouched coastline. Rest easy in one of our cocoons, jump into your private plunge pool or sit on the patio and enjoy the sea breeze blowing through the tree branches. Relish your fully-inclusive gourmet cuisines, read a book at the bar, or network with other guests during sundowner cocktails! Join our expert team of rangers and listen to their anecdotes on a morning game drive into Yala National Park or Bundala National Park. Enjoy a scrumptious meal at the open-air, tastefully designed restaurant. Then, maybe enjoy a dip in the pool that wraps around the restaurant and bamboo-clad bar, or return to your cocoon and enjoy a dip in our classic bathtub while observing the jungle. In the evening, join for sundowner cocktails, or go on a long walk on the beach; once darkness falls, enjoy the unfiltered view of the sea of stars above while listening to the waves crash against the shore below. Go for a morning hour-long nature walk with a ranger around the property and nearby bush areas; learn about the jungle and its species, their ways and characteristics.
