Spend seven days at a tranquil hideaway on the banks of Koggala Lake, in Southern Sri Lanka. Immerse yourself in the mind-body practices of:
The yoga shala is an elegant, elevated retreat space. Classes are lead by both Cassie Thomas and Jessica Maguire who cater for all levels of yoga, Pilates and meditation experience.
Guided by nature, evolved with aesthetic passion, and fortified by sustainable philosophy, Tri is a masterpiece of forward-thinking flair, where mathematical marries artistic and intelligence embraces emotion. Tri’s Golden Ratio theme developed organically; a contour survey of the site informed the spiral pattern and the positioning of the buildings and Tri’s unique design ethos.
From lake to table, and garden to plate, dining at Tri is as organic and seasonal as it gets. The culinary concept under chef Neil Wager’s expertise is fresh Sri Lankan fusion: contemporary, creative dishes that are as delicious and appealing as they are nutritious and local, all presented on unique handmade crockery. Food and drink is a highlight of staying at Tri. You will enjoy a six course dinner on the first and final nights of the retreat.
Wellbeing at Tri is rather special. Overlooking the treetops, the two treatment rooms with cool white terrazzo walls, natural slate floors and large windows, and sheltered relaxation space, promise tranquility in which to enjoy expert Ayurvedic and other therapies.
The tranquil steam cavern has white terrazzo walls and an outdoor shower surrounded by nature. This package includes a massage for you to unwind and relax.
Enjoy swimming and snorkelling as well as the obligatory sunbathing opportunities, as we tour the Indian Ocean on a private yacht!
Visit a lowland tea plantation that's perhaps the closest one to the ocean. Apart from producing a fine range of black and green teas they are famed for introducing white, or silver, teas according to the ancient methods employed by the imperial courts in China. It is a fully operating estate with its own factory and a fascinating glimpse of tea production.
We will take a cinnamon island excursion. From the sweet scent that lingers from the wood that adorns the villas and suites, to the bark freshly cut from the tree that makes its mark in the aromatic curries and fragrant dahl.
Learn to cook the Sri Lankan way. Spend a couple of hours with a local chefs discovering the secret world of Sri Lankan curries. Get involved, learn about the spices, local ingredients (some of which grow in Tri's gardens), and cook with clay pots. You will be cooking your own lunch so make sure you follow chef’s advice!
We will be taken via tuk tuk to visit a local temple and Galle Fort. There will also be the option for cycling through the local area.
