Sri Lanka could not be anymore calming and peaceful (with the exception of its capital city Colombo that is).
From the nature reserves and wild beaches of the south to the mountain plateaus of the Central Valley and Kandy district, the people are calm, the vibe is relaxed and it's nature world and landscape is glorious and beautiful.
The nature is so awe-inspiring and special, the resort spas go to extreme lengths to integrate their physical venues into the local habitat in a harmonious and balanced way.
These destination wellness spas are eco-conscious with a respectable objective of having no effect on the nature around them, leaving no footprint on their local environment for the local habitat and wildlife to 'pick up the bill'.
This has to be the most harmonious way to enjoy a wellness retreat, in balance with the nature, people and locality.
On the subject of the wildlife Sri Lanka is a rich and diverse ecosystem with many beautiful song birds and butterflies to amaze with their kaleidoscope of colour and noise, and with land animals like it's many interesting reptiles and jungle inhabitants.
In the central plateau the rainforests can hypnotise with their jungle nosies, wetter climate and vibrant environments.

In both there are many retreat centers with varied schedules and packages to satisfy your interests and requirements. And you are able to choose based on your budget as there are many independent and affordable guesthouses, old colonial villa estates converted into wellness havens, all the way up to luxury wellness resorts.
