Resplendent Ceylon, a collection of luxury resorts in Sri Lanka, invites guests to experience a summer of adventure at its three boutique resorts on the teardrop isle.
Seaside resort Cape Weligama offers an array of experiences connected to the island’s rich heritage and community. Guests can learn about heritage arts and create their own; participate in the gardening and harvesting activity; and upcycle waste materials into crafts and jewellery. For the little ones, there are scavenger adventures, kids’ yoga, and the resort’s Ice Cream for the Soul activity.
Wild Coast Tented Lodge offers bush painting, guided wildlife tours, animal tracks plaster cast workshops, coastal geology exploration and education, as well as storytelling and presentations about its current projects and learnings. There is also a Survival Gastronomia experience which teaches guests how to mix spices, season ingredients, and cook their own authentic Sri Lankan meal.
Nestled in the heart of the Central Highlands, guests at Ceylon Tea Trails can join in with gardening and harvesting fresh produce, learn the art of growing their own food, participate in upcycling craft workshops, or explore the lush biodiversity of the plantation and forest patches with the help of an expert naturalist and gain insights into bird behaviour and calls while sketching the sights of the day.
Ceylon Tea Trails also has artistic experiences for those who wish to capture the resort’s stunning surroundings on canvas; a tracking activity which allows the entire family to explore the wilderness of the Central Highlands and learn about leopards that roam the land; and a fishing excursion where guests create their own bamboo fishing rods and learn sustainable fishing practices from expert naturalists.
