How to plan the perfect Sri Lanka wellness holiday

Sri Lanka wellness holidays can be anything from a three-week stint at an Ayurvedic retreat to a full island tour with a focus on mental and physical wellbeing. As an island with strong spirituality and serendipity, it is a fantastic destination for healing, renewal, and a break from the rigidity of the modern world. Here are our top tips for planning the perfect Sri Lanka wellness holiday.

1. What do you mean by ‘wellness’?

What does wellness mean to you? For some, it is a spa day filled with massages and steam baths. For others, it is a three-day wilderness trek where you can be off-grid guilt-free. Make sure that you understand what your client means by ‘wellness’.

2. How active do you want to be?

Sometimes doing nothing is not as relaxing as an adrenaline-filled adventure – but then again, overdoing it and coming home exhausted is not right either. Be clear on how busy and strenuous the itinerary will be, and adjust it accordingly to suit your client.

3. Which type of accommodation are you looking for?

Can you relax in a simple stay without electricity? Do you want expert-led yoga classes? Are you dreaming of a luxury spa where pampering is the order of the day? Clients are spoiled for choice when choosing between wellness retreats in Sri Lanka.

4. Do you want to explore Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing practice originally from India. You can have a consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor and receive a personalised programme with special diet plan and traditional treatments using traditional herbal oils.

5. Or do you want familiar treatments?

Many wellness retreats in Sri Lanka do a range of international treatments in addition to traditional Ayurveda, including Swedish and Thai massages and Balinese therapies. Each type of massage has its own purpose and style. Choose carefully.
