Join us as we take you on one of the most legendary journeys across Sri Lanka with Resplendent Ceylon
Why Experience the resplendent circuit in sri lanka?
Break past stereotypes of the tear-drop island being a mere destination of temples and mythology or even an extension of Southern India. As much as we love India, the land of Ceylon has it's own unique charm. Whether you're dreaming of a luxury honeymoon in Sri Lanka or wondering what are the best family getaways in Sri Lanka or just longing for some proper down time on one of its many powder sand beaches, we've chalked out something truly special.
Meet Resplendent Ceylon! Founded by the Fernando family, producers of the world-famous Dilmah Ceylon Tea, the brand opens doors to three (and counting) fantastic Relais & Chateaux properties in Sri Lanka. What we absolutely love about the collection is the showcase of the very Best of Sri Lanka through distinctive stand out resorts that are connected by a thread of unparalleled service.
Here at Cozymoons - we strive to design transformative travel experiences, positively impact local communities and ensure sustainability in our practices. Just one of the many reasons why we're a match made in heaven with Resplendent Ceylon sharing these principles in order to inspire the modern age, discerning traveller in you.
A GLIMPSE OF what's possible..
3 nights at CEYLON tea trails
3 nights at CEYLON TEA TRAILS
Day 1: Upon arrival into Colombo, you'll be whisked away by private car (4.5 hrs) or a shared scenic flight (30 min) to the property. Once you're here, revel in tranquility with a Ceylon Salt Bath waiting in-room or grab a glass of some Gin & Tonic as you watch the sun go down before a delectable 4-course dinner tea paired dinner. Now how often do you hear that?
Day 2: Today is special as we give you a fix of the rich heritage of these legendary tea estates. Tea planters will let you in on age-old tea making processes from picking to final product at Dilmah's facilities finally culminating with a tasting of course. This evening engage in gastronomic marvels as we cook up a tea infused gourmet dinner followed by some cognac in the library.
Day 3: After a scenic breakfast, go kayaking on lake Castlereagh and soaks in the views of the tea estates all around. If you're feeling more active, go hiking to nearby Adam's Peak. There's plenty to do around from bird watching to mountain biking as well. Settle in tonight for a culinary delight before you depart the next day for more wild territories of the island nation.
3 nights at WILD COAST TENTED LODGE
Day 4: After breakfast this morning, depart for Wild Coast Tented Lodge. Opt for a 5 hour drive or 30 minute scenic flight for your journey. Located just next to Yala National Park, this is where empty beaches meet rugged forests. As you get here, get set for the ultimate glamping experience as you freshen up in your Cocoon or Urchin before sundown cocktails on the beach.
Day 5: Rise early this morning, grab some coffee and croissants before jumping into the Safari vehicle. We set off to explore uncharted territories of Yala National Park as the rangers fill in you about the Flora, Fauna and amazing wildlife including Elephants, Sloth Bears & Leopards. Later this evening, enjoy some incredible Sri Lankan Cuisine before retiring for the next day.
Day 6: Wake up to a bubble bath in your copper tub if you wish for a leisurely start. Should you wish for another game drive, Cozymoons would be happy to tailor more such experiences for you. This evening enjoy cocktails and BBQ on the beach, perfectly culminating the second leg of your resplendent sojourn.
3 nights at cape weligama
Day 7: Just 2.5 hrs from Yala, we'll bring you to the final resort of your journey, Cape Weligama. With just 39 keys and villas that are expansive, stylish and surrounded by tropical gardens - you're in for a real treat. Revel at the stunning Moon Pool or get a cocktail at Surf Bar. Plenty of dining choices away with some of the finest Sri Lankan fare on offer.
Day 8: This morning soak in some Vitamin 'Sea' at Ocean Terrace over breakfast. Later, hit the ocean with tons of adrenaline pumping experiences in store such as Surfing, Scuba Diving or even some Stand-up Paddle Boating if you may? We're also happy to design an amazing Whale Safari as we throw you on to a twin-engine catamaran and set sail in search of Blue Whales, Sperm Whales & Dolphins.
Day 9: After more than a week on the road, it's only fair to end this extravaganza of serene experiences with some pampering at the acclaimed on-site Sanctuary Spa. Enjoy the evening at Cape Weligama with a lovely meal at the Chef's Table on even in your own villa if you prefer.
Day 10: Enjoy breakfast this morning before we drive you 2.5 hrs to Colombo. Of course our team will have taken care of the seat selection, web check-in and other formalities, so you can soak in the memories of the last 10 days through your Repslendent Journey in Sri Lanka with Cozymoons.
