Baby Boomer Travels | Tips + Trends

Continuously proving that age is simply a state of mind, Baby Boomers have redefined the art of travel over the years – and more so in recent times. 

You’re big spenders on food and have a fondness for nature inspired travel experiences, looking for opportunities of discovery and growth. Here’s six things to consider when travelling to our part of the world. 

Experiential and Immersive

If you’re on the lookout for authentic and novel experiences, Ceylon Tea Trails offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life in exchange for adventure amidst the Central Highlands of our island. The quaint planters’ bungalows and peerless butler service invite you to sit back and drink in the tea-carpeted landscape. Experience scenic walks and nature hikes discovering local flora and fauna, quintessential afternoon high tea gazing over the Castlereagh Lake, and harnessing a deep connection with nature take centre stage. 

Sociable and Tailored

On the more laidback side of travel, if you’re seeking deeper connections, bring the entire family along on an adventure. The villas and suites at Cape Weligama are home to generously-sized contemporary living quarters complemented by tropical gardens, providing the ideal aura of a private space of your own. Sociable, family-oriented experiences like mask making workshops, on-resort experiential dining venues, and private whale watching excursions for the entire household create the sense of a truly immersive and memorable getaway. 

Flexible and Active 

We bet you’re planning bucket list vacays as we speak. We’re also pretty sure you’re expecting to travel for longer periods of time and book well in advance. With the gift of flexibility and a penchant for outdoor adventures and thrills, visit Wild Coast Tented Lodge, where the Lodge is flanked by the rugged ocean and Yala National Park. Twice daily safaris and walks along the jungle-meets-coastal landscape provide the ideal opportunity to witness animal activity and excitement. History buffs will also find the region’s cultural and historic offerings worthy of exploration.
