Past Retreats

Cape Weligama

June 2nd 2018

Resplendent Ceylon. Luxury.

Two interchangeable terms. 

It was our absolute pleasure to partner with the exquisite Cape Weligama for a one day retreat without parallel. Barre, Pilates, gourmet lunches, sunset cocktails... you name it, we had it. 

True luxury.

Villa by CC

Mar 24th 2018

We launched our "One Day" luxury retreat offering at the brand new, Villa by Contemporary Ceylon, Wadduwa. 

Bringing the excellence developed in their fine dining offering to a stunning location by the ocean, the experience was nothing short of luxurious - seclusion, relaxation and restoration. 

The essence of our luxury retreats. 


July 29-30 2017

The stunning Santani Wellness Resort & Spa was our inaugural retreats partner. 10 guests enjoyed delectable cuisine, enjoyed massage therapies, invigorated their bodies with outdoor Barre & Pilates classes and made lifelong friends in this overnight retreat. 

It is our pleasure to return to Santani for a two night retreat in July 2018.
