Work from Resplendent Ceylon

Resplendent Ceylon’s collection of small, luxury boutique resorts are the ideal spaces for those looking for seclusion, safety and an efficient space to work from. A desk with views of the jungle, the ocean or the tea plantations could be your next workspace.

All three of our resorts, Ceylon Tea Trails, Wild Coast Lodge and Cape Weligama have work spaces within the rooms and villas, as well as high speed internet. These work spaces include a fully equipped desk, located in the comfort and privacy of your own room. Our butler services enable you to work with the privacy you require, but still have someone readily available to help out with whatever you may need.

Ceylon Tea Trails is perfect for anyone who enjoys old-world charm and refinement, where you can remotely work in idyllic isolation in the picturesque highlands, within your own restored private tea planter bungalow. Even though you are high up in the highlands, the high-speed internet and phone connectivity will make sure that your remote working day is seamless. You can choose to work from the comfort and privacy of your own room within the bungalow, or in any of the outdoor spaces overlooking the beautiful landscape of the highlands. A butler and private chef are provided for you to prepare your meals according to your preferences. Each one of the five bungalows features walking trails between them, many of which present stunning views. This is ideal for anyone looking to take a break from work and take in the beautifully manicured tea gardens, tranquil patches of forest and jungle, and streams and mini waterfalls. The seclusion, cool climate, fresh mountain air, and panoramic views await you at Ceylon Tea Trails.

Wild Coast Tented Lodge is ideal for those who want to work from the wild. This luxury tented camp is situated on a rugged, empty beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean, with uniquely designed man-made structures that seamlessly blend into the surrounding landscape. You can work remotely from the comfort of your own bespoke Cocoon, scattered across our own bit of jungle, contiguous with Yala National Park. The deck area of the Cocoons is a beautiful space to work from, as you are surrounded by the sights and sounds of the jungle. You can also work from our library, which is a spacious, quiet room, with a large desk and plenty of reading material. Our staff is on hand to assist you with whatever you require. If you feel the call of the jungle pulling you away from your desk, you can take a guided safari walk of the surrounding area with one of our experienced rangers.

Cape Weligama is the quintessential beach resort, comprising a collection of spacious villas and suites nestled within private gardens spread out over a cliff top overlooking the Indian Ocean. This is the ideal option for anyone who wants to work whilst being by the sea. Here, you can work from the privacy of your spacious villa, which comes equipped with everything you need to efficiently complete your work. If you want some fresh air whilst you work, you can easily sit outside in the shady, breezy verandahs of your villa. You can even work from any of the public spaces, which have amazing ocean views. And, when you want to take a break, enjoy your private steam room, or take a dip in a semi-private lap pool. There is also a dedicated guest service manager on hand to serve and assist you with whatever you need.

Our SafeStay protocols are also strictly adhered to at all our resorts. Our resorts are in pristine, isolated locations, guaranteeing your safety. Resplendent Ceylon is the sole Sri Lankan member of Relais & Chateaux, the global fellowship of individually owned and operated luxury hotels and restaurants. All three resorts have won global acclaim as the finest in Sri Lanka.
