Imagine a program that takes your clients up to the remote paddy fields in a local village to experience the rice planting activity, or a visit to the ancient world renowned and heritage site ‘The Sigiriya Rock', or treated to royalty in being welcomed by an elephant swaying to the sounds of beating drums, or perhaps even taken on an old steam train ride through the tea plantations culminating with a visit to a tea plantation to gain hands on experience on the several processes in which the tea leaf is put through till it is finally ready to be brewed for drinking.

The opportunities are also there to have their lunches or dinners served in old mansions accompanied by the sweet sounds of orchestral music and watch the bevy of beautiful dancers swaying to that music. Your special events arranged in a local Sri Lankan Village where the entire village is illuminated with thousands of oil lanterns at night.

To have your clients go through the process of the secrets of being treated at a Spa with an aromatic massage in pure Sri Lankan style, giving them the experience of what it means to be treated like kings and queens.
