GUIDED CYCLING
Sometimes the simpler things in life provide the greatest pleasure. Guided bike tours through the lush green paddy fields give a glimpse of an often unseen part of Sri Lanka. Marvel at kingfishers and bee-eaters, glimpse the daily rituals of village life or just enjoy the cool breeze of free-wheeling through a magnificent landscape. This has been a longtime top excursion.
WELCOME BASKETS
There’s nothing better after a long journey than delicious smells coming from the kitchen and a few bottles chilling in the fridge. We will send you the villa menus and work with the best suppliers to produce a fantastic collection of wines and champagnes to complement any palette. Wines need to be paid for in advance of arrival.
KANDYAN DANCERS / BUDDHIST BLESSINGS
An intimate front row seat of the unique Kandyan Dancers – expect back-flips, drums, masks and fire display – all from the comfort of the villa. Most villas have a shrine and guests can benefit from a visit by Monks from a nearby Temple to conduct a blessing for a gentle and moving experience.
WHALE WATCHING
From December to April Whales and dolphins, including the mighty Blue Whale, can be seen off the southern coast. Seeing one of the largest animals on earth in one of the most agreeable temperatures is a truly amazing experience. We always recommend a private boat so that guests can swim or snorkel before coming ashore.
SAFARI
Udewalawa and Yala are the big two and offer fantastic game viewing of Leopards, Elephants, Buffalo & Sloth Bears. For birders, SL is a dream destination. Kalametiya and Bandula National Park are a must and some 197 different species of bird will stop here throughout the year.
