Hoping for a revival of travel and tourism in 2021, Sri Lanka has now reopened its borders for international travellers around the world. To mark this occasion, luxury experiential travel provider Resplendent Ceylon has partnered with Jetpooling to launch private jet experiential journeys. It has also offered Indian guests direct access to immersive stays at the resorts that form a remarkable ‘tea, sea and safari’ circuit at the Ceylon Tea Trails in Sri Lanka. Tourists can also experience Resplendent Ceylon’s benchmark luxury hospitality and service across three distinctive resorts: Ceylon Tea Trails, Cape Weligama and Wild Coast Tented Lodge.
“We welcome this promising step taken by Sri Lanka Tourism authorities to reopen doors for international travellers in 2021. At Resplendent Ceylon, we recognise the constantly evolving travel expectations and continue on the path to inspire confidence in our guests. We are delighted to exclusively partner with Jetpooling to introduce seamless experiential luxury journeys across our collection for Indian guests,” said Malik Fernando, Managing Director, Resplendent Ceylon.
Package deals and information
The private jet experiential package curated for Ceylon Tea Trails invites guests to escape to the heart of the Ceylon tea region. Perched at an altitude of 1250 metres, this award-winning boutique resort consists of restored colonial era tea planters’ bungalows.
The package includes a seven-night fully inclusive stay (all meals, non-alcoholic/ alcoholic beverages selection, laundry) and accommodation at one of the three bungalows, Summerville Bungalow, Dunkeld Owner’s Cottage and Castlereagh Bungalow.
During the stay, guests can choose from a range of signature activities such as indulgent dining experiences that include tea infused dinner or tea planter’s picnic lunch, kayaking and hiking for adventure enthusiasts, heritage city excursions and a guided tour of the Dunkeld Tea Factory. Resplendent Ceylon’s collaboration with Jetpooling further adds to the luxe quotient by providing specially crafted journeys via private jets. Guests can also choose to fly from Delhi or Mumbai to Colombo in a Dassault Falcon 2000 (12-seater) or an Embraer Legacy 650 (13-seater), respectively. Once in Colombo, their transfers to Ceylon Tea Trails will be via a helicopter ride. This package starts at Rs 22.5 lakh+ for a couple.
The Sri Lankan Tourism guidelines and safety protocols approved by government authorities are designed to ensure maximum safety for international travellers and local communities. There is no quarantine restriction or minimum stay period, and guests will have access to all facilities at the officially listed certified ‘Safe and Secure’ Level 1 hotels. These steps establish a responsibly managed bio-bubble for international visitors.
All three properties in the Resplendent Ceylon collection are a part of the certified list and have released a video with a message from Malik Fernando, showcasing the resorts and their teams, who are waiting to welcome guests after a period of 10 months.
To mark the occasion, Resplendent Ceylon has partnered with Jetpooling to launch private jet experiential journeys; and direct access to immersive stays for Indian guests at resorts.
