January 28, 2021: As Sri Lanka reopens its doors with safety protocols, no minimum stays and no restrictive quarantine, Resplendent Ceylon – a hospitality group owned by Dilmah Tea Company - has partnered with Jetpooling to launch bespoke, private jet experiential journeys for Indian travellers. 

Sole member of Relais & Chateaux in Sri Lanka. Resplendent Ceylon has been curating a range of authentic experiences with distinctive hospitality over the years, while consistently contributing towards local communities and the environment. Its properties - Ceylon Tea Trails, Cape Weligama and Wild Coast Tented Lodge - offer an enchanting circuit in the destination - from tea fields to clifftop beach and safari lodge. The brand’s SafeStay initiative implemented across the three resorts ensures the health and safety of all guests, teams, their families, and local communities.

As an example, the private jet experiential package curated for Ceylon Tea Trails invites guests to escape to the magical heart of the Ceylon tea region. Perched at an altitude of 1250 meters, this boutique resort consists of restored colonial era tea planters’ bungalows. This one-of-a-kind experience includes a 7-night fully inclusive stay and accommodation at one of the three bungalows. 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 adds to the luxe quotient by providing specially crafted journeys via private jets to whisk the guests away for an ultimate vacation. Guests can 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.
