Welcome to your next Wellness Adventure in Sri Lanka

sumptuous cuisine. sri lankan luxury. sustainable vibes. spiritual serenity.

Join Dani Venn on the Wholehearted Wellness Retreat in Sri Lanka.

18 – 24 August 2019.

One of the hottest 2019 travel destinations around, Sri Lanka will not disappoint. It’s the land of colonial charm, rolling surf and fragrant tea plantations. A culturally rich wonder, filled with coffee and coconuts and cinnamon. Tantalising cuisine, smiling locals and UNESCO gems galore.

The kind of awe-inspiring place that captures your heart and takes your breath away with its mystical beauty.

If this sounds like your cup of Ceylon tea, join us at the stunning Tri Lanka, a tranquil hotel hideaway on the banks of Koggala Lake in southern Sri Lanka, where the Wholehearted Cook, Dani Venn, will treat you to one week of wholehearted wellness and scrumptious Sri Lankan cuisine.

Stay and play at this stylish and unique retreat, the perfect balance of eco-conscious escapism, holiday ambience, boutique wellness, picturesque scenery, vibrant local culture, jungle adventure, beachside bliss and total luxury.

Enjoy exclusive use of the Tri Lanka resort, where Dani Venn and Brittany Reid will be your guides for the whole week and show you the best that Southern Sri Lanka has to offer.

This is your time to nourish, nurture and glow.
