Trip Overview

Into the Wild is an outdoor adventure that will leave you feeling accomplished and euphoric.

Kayak and raft along the white waters of the Kelani River in Kitulgala, and try out surfing, snorkeling and sailing on the coast near Galle. Head into the jungle to spot leopards, elephants, sloth bears and a variety of birds. In between, pamper yourself in Sri Lanka’s best off-the-beaten-track accommodation, from luxury boutique hotels to a glamping outfit on the border of Yala National Park.

Bougainvillea Retreat, a sophisticated abode set up in 2002, is located just 45 minutes from Kandy, near the scenic Victoria Golf Club. The retreat feels contemporary and exhibits a design that seems more in tune with Tuscany than Sri Lanka’s hill country thanks to its delicate iron balustrades, infinity pool and stone-embossed walls. Indoor and outdoor areas flow smoothly into one another and share the jaw-dropping panoramas of the Victoria Reservoir, the palm-fringed mountains and the lush neighboring golf course.

The hotel is designed for complete relaxation including features such as a freeform infinity swimming pool, a mini-cinema with over 1,000 DVDs, a well-thumbed library, and a spa with Jacuzzi and steam bath. Bougainvillea also hosts several yoga retreats throughout the year.
