Our first ever incentive, the Jaguar incentive trip was for 40 of Jaguar’s best performers from around the world. The trip was based in Galle with extensions into Colombo and connections to some of our most interesting hosts in Colombo, Sigiriya and Galle while buying out the best accommodation in these two locations.

Australian Hotels Association
Tasked with organizing a four day educational tour of the country’s best restaurants and bars for the Australian Hotels and Bar Association, we based this group of 40 hotel owners from AHA in the south of the country.

The leopard sightings in Wilpattu and Yala national parks were exquisite. The theme nights organized at Amangalla and Ulagalla were some of our best creations to date.
We organized a seven day holiday in the south of the country, basing a group of 60 top performers from Konica Minolta in Bentota. While staying in Bentota they privately chartered the vintage Viceroy train to travel to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Galle. We recreated a casino at the Taj Vivanta and built a ‘wall of fame’ for the top performers. Activities included watersports, tours and a gala prize giving ceremony.

Women and Power
One of our most interesting trips, this seven day journey was built around an educational program themed on women’s empowerment in a local context.
