Your 6 Day Luxury Wellness Retreat in the Wilderness

Curated Wellness Package & Programme

Day 1

Arrival: We meet you at the designated meeting point by noon and start the short welcome trek to our campsite. Your luggage will be taken by our porters, leaving you free to take in the sights and sounds around you. After the welcome briefing by our Camp Manager at the camp lounge area, you may check-in into your suite-tent. After you settle in, lunch will be served.

Post-lunch: Our naturalist will discuss the evening programme with you. You are free to take it easy and enjoy the large campsite and the surrounding area, or you may opt for the 1 ½ to 2 hour adventure bushwalk that will take you through the surrounding grassland and forest – an integral part of our wellbeing holidays.

Early Evening: Rest and relax in your suite-tent before rejuvenating with a gentle yoga session at sunset.

Dinner: Take a relaxing soak in your Bush Bathtub and meet us near the campfire for drinks, dinner and campfire stories under the stars.

Day 2 to 5

Pre-breakfast: Rise early, sipping on a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy an early morning yoga session to wake up your body and mind while basking in the sunrise.

Breakfast: Enjoy learning to cook a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast dish in the campsite with our chef. Our cooking therapy teaches you to prepare 5 different dishes, 1 for each morning.

Post-breakfast: Nature Meditation at the campsite.

Lunch: Discover authentic and warm Sri Lankan flavours, with a spread of traditional food served in style. Over 90% of all vegetables, spices and produce are supplied from a neighbouring village, which you may opt to visit for a real village-style lunch.

Post-lunch: Relax after lunch, then go for an evening bushwalk with our Naturalist and 3rd generation bushman.

Early Evening: Rest and relax in your suite-tent before rejuvenating with a gentle yoga session at sunset. Enjoy a deliciously Sri Lankan High Tea, followed by an optional rejuvenating Ayurveda Massage (Full Body or Half Body, as per your requirements) by our therapist (to be pre-booked separately).

Dinner: Take a relaxing soak in your Bush Bathtub and meet us near the campfire for a delicious BBQ dinner under the stars.

Post-dinner Activities

Stargazing: What better way to wrap up a feel-good day, than with a relaxing night walk to stargaze? Or, simply retire to your suite-tent or Star Bed to enjoy the rest of the night isolated with nothing in-between you and a billion stars.

Camera Trapping: Observe nocturnal activities at Ahaspokuna; visit our ‘hide’ near the waterhole for an immersive experience of nocturnal wildlife as the chilly forest breeze sweeps across the grasslands.

 

Day 6 

Post-breakfast: You will now feel energised to embark on our special 3-hour bushwalk into the grasslands and forest.

Lunch: After your bushwalk (or morning of relaxation), you should arrive in time for lunch at the campsite – which will be around 1pm. When you’re ready to leave, enjoy a rejuvenating Ayurveda Massage before you embark on our departure trail – a 20-minute trek with a descent of about 300 metres, taking you back to where we first met you. This is where we bid you farewell and you leave behind the world of Ahaspokuna… until next time!

Ahaspokuna Stories



 ahaspokuna logo

A H A S - P O K U N A

In the Sinhalese language (spoken in Sri Lanka), “Ahas” means “Sky” and “Pokuna” means “Pond” or “Pool”. Ahaspokuna is so named in reference to the lake here, high up in the hills, that is only fed by rainwater. A former settlement that sprung up on its shores was subsequently also named “Ahaspokuna”. Today, the jungle tide has washed over where people once lived and the camp provides a wilderness retreat for those in search of something different.
