Please note

Our Package offers an excellent detailed introduction to Hatha & Yin yoga for beginners and the chance to dive deep into more advanced practice. Yoga is for everyone, so you don't need to have any prior experience and we welcome complete beginners. We have a diverse daily program for both yoga and meditation, with multiple styles of classes including Hatha and Yin spread throughout the day for you to pick and choose the best time slots during your stay with us. This gives our guests plenty of flexibility when planning their days with their alternative activities like surfing and exploring the local areas. Practicing Hatha & Yin yoga will help to harmonise the nervous system, increase your sense of balance with the body & mind and strengthen your lymphatic system. To ensure our guests have ample time for rest and rejuvenation, we have deliberately chosen not to schedule any yoga classes on Mondays or on Thursday afternoons. We believe in the importance of allowing for a dedicated day of relaxation, enabling you to unwind and recharge. This intentional break also provides an opportunity for guests to explore the island or partake in our half day elephant safari tour, all without missing out on any scheduled classes during their stay with us.

- National Park Safari Tours
Leopards, elephants, birdlife in abundance - Sri Lanka is a wildlife lover's paradise and is one of the best places in Asia for seeing wildlife. Both Yala and Udawalawe have stunning landscapes, so whichever park you decide to visit for your safari, you will find the landscapes very enjoyable and unique. Udawalawe is in our opinion the best safari in Sri Lanka because it provides a truly gratifying experience. You can get very close to animals, particularly the elephants, and you're never really bothered by other jeeps and tourists. Whilst your chances of spotting leopards at Udawalawe are less likely than at Yala, there is nonetheless a healthy leopard population in Udawalawe that sightings do happen. You're also almost guaranteed to spot Sri Lankan elephants as well as red spotted deers, wild water buffalo, sloth bears, crocodiles, monkeys and many different species of birds. Best mornings to join this tours is on both on Monday and Friday mornings, as we have no yoga or meditation scheduled on those mornings. Other mornings can also be pre booked where possible. This activity is an optional extra and not included in the package price but you should definitely make time to to visit one.

- Seafood & Vegetarian BBQ Dinner**
Every Wednesday & Sunday evening, The Salty Pelican crew cooks up a yummy Seafood BBQ including delicious grilled vegetarian options also. We love to bring everyone of our guests together to eat, drink, socialise and make new lifetime friends. The BBQ is served at our communal dining table usually and includes all the sides and refeshing cold drinks.

- Curry & Rice & All Things Nice Dinner**
Every Monday & Friday evening, we gather our guests together around our beautiful communal dining table to taste a variety of different local curries... including vegetarian, seafood or chicken. The delicious food variety is complemented with refreshing cold drinks.
