Wellness, Wilderness & Why

14 days/13 nights

This itinerary champions wellness for mind and body through stays in remote and unspoiled regions. Spend four nights at Santani Wellness Resort*, Sri Lanka’s award-winning destination wellness resort near Kandy, followed by four nights ‘off grid’ at remote Gal Oya Lodge immersed within nature and on the fringe of a national park. The final part of the holiday is spent near Galle, within the walled gardens of Why House, which offers yoga and aqua aerobics classes, and spa treatment programmes, all just five minutes from one of southern Sri Lanka’s best swimming beaches (and 15 minutes’ drive from the very historic Galle Fort).

*While the individual treatments, facilities and yoga classes within Santani’s tri-level spa are open to guests staying any number of nights, if your client wished to indulge in a targeted wellness package, they would need to stay a minimum of seven nights.
