Demand for experiential travel is growing apace and is an integral part of any luxury holiday. We understand that you don’t want to just look, you want to feel, experience and be part of the action, rather than simply watching it

The world is getting smaller, with destinations now more accessible than ever before for the growing number of travellers, so to find a destination less frequented involves a skill of carving out a sense of individuality and exploration

We are excited about the following destinations for 2018:

Sri Lanka

A number of boutique hotels are continually being introduced to Sri Lanka’s coastline, tea plantations, cultural triangle and national parks. Sri Lanka is the perfect honeymoon destination or an ideal twin-centre with the Maldives for the ultimate in luxury.

Wix Squared has some exceptional guides to get under the skin of the country, from a local surf champion and teacher in Hikkaduwa, a professor of botany to bring Kandy’s Botanical Gardens to life, the local artist who invites you to his studio in Kandy to discuss philosophy, music and art, to an eccentric British novelist, travel writer and poet. The level of investment from hotels this year reflects the rise in popularity of the country, with still more boutique properties to come, such as Sigiriya Resort and Pekoe House.
