One week from £1295pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Railay is a hidden oasis of beauty. Cut off from the mainland by high cliffs and dense jungle, this tiny peninsula is only accessible by boat. The area is packed with world-beating activities for body, mind and spirit – all from a beautiful luxury base. Neighbouring Phi-Phi Island is home to great diving and was the backdrop to the film. 

What to do there…

Railay is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:
  • Major: Rock-climbing, Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Cooking-classes, Art-classes, Boat-trips, Cave-treks, Nature-walks, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Gym/Fitness, Sailing, Windsurfing, Swimming, Tennis, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

Home to one of our favourite super-luxury hotels, Railay’s incredible natural environment can be enjoyed in effortless style at the 5* Rayavadee. The hotel exudes opulence and its private activity classes, spa services and fine dining are first class. Railay can also be enjoyed from the sleek, design-conscious 4* Bhu Nga Thani.
 

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Krabi Airport is 1h away by car/speedboat. Phuket Airport is 3.5-4.5h away. Both airports are 1h from Bangkok.
  • Weather: Nov to May is peak season, but off-season offers great seclusion and the rains come in bursts from 2.30-4pm.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Railay has a chilled out, adventurous vibe. The long west beach is linked to the eastern bay by the peninsula’s only shopping strip, a tiny, sandy street with a great coffee and cocktails bar and ice cream parlour. You will share gorgeous cliffs, jungle, beaches and islands with tanned rock-climbers and playful monkeys, but the exclusive Phranang beach and best caves are all right next to Rayavadee.

One week from £3195pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and FB accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Climbing through the twisted vines of the forest, accompanied by armed rangers, you know you are on an adventure. Up ahead in the steamy jungle something is stirring. Then you catch sight of a mighty Silverback, standing his ground as his babies frolic almost within your reach. So intimate a family, so wild and yet so human. 

What to do there…

  • Major: Gorilla-watching, Jungle-treks, Cultural-visits, Mountain-biking, Bird-watching, Photography, Nature-walks.

Your butler will pander to your every whim, setting you a roaring fire, ready for the cool mountain nights.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Bwindi is a 1.5-2h flight or 8h drive from Entebbe. Jinja is 1.5-2h drive from Kampala/Entebbe.
  • Weather: hot and humid all year round, wet Mar-May.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

There is nothing quite like meeting a troop of Gorillas in the wild. They exude raw power yet treat each other with such tenderness. Soak it up and, if you can, go back for more. You will sense changing moods and social dynamics. But take time to see the area too. The volcanoes and forest valleys are a thing of beauty, and visits to the local communities are always rewarding.

What it feels like to be there...

The Great Barrier Reef is an immense and beautiful natural wonder. Teeming with life and colour, it would take more than 10 hours to drive its length. The warm sea laps the white-golden sands of the surrounding islands and coasts, and jungle palms flutter and wave back at the giant clams and turtles in the shallows. 

What to do there…

The Barrier Reef is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Sailing, Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Boat-trips, Spa/Massage, Wine-tasting.
  • Other: Snorkelling, Swimming, Gym/Fitness, Golf, Library.

Where to stay…

5* Qualia sits on the white-sand jungle islands of the Whitsundays at the south end of the Barrier Reef. Dedicated to sensory experiences, the blend of exciting water sports, relaxing spas and fine dining make it a magnificent resort. 5* Sea Temple Resort & Spa Port Douglas, at the north end, is a great alternative, with direct access to rainforests and reef.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Hamilton Island is 1.5h from Cairns or Brisbane by air, 2-3h from Sydney and Melbourne. Port Douglas and Daintree are 1-2h north of Cairns by car.
  • Weather: hot and wet year round (dryer in winter, Jun-Aug)

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The Barrier Reef is one of the best places in the world to get a perfect aquarium-style underwater view. It is so huge, bright and interesting at relatively shallow depths that even non-divers see it in style. The decadent hotels and yachts offer plenty of relaxing luxuriousness to accompany the exciting adventures on the water. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

One week from £1095pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Sri Lanka’s Sigiriya rock is a gigantic natural wonder made even greater by human endeavour. Steps carved into its steep sides and precarious rope walkways take you up, past exquisite erotic art, to the fortress at the summit. Along the way you pass through the huge rock-hewn Lion gate, to the baths, palaces and temples beyond. 

What to do there…

Sigiriya is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Elephant-riding, Horse-riding, Mountain-biking, Bird-watching, Nature-walks, Boat-trips, Spa/Massage, Jungle-treks, Community-projects, Cultural-visits, Historical-sites.
  • Other: Safari, Cave-treks, Music, Gym/Fitness, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Ecology, Hot-air-ballooning Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

5* Heritance Kandalama is an eco-design masterpiece from renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, who cleverly blended the 160-room hotel into the rock faces and surrounding jungle, using stilts so animals can pass underneath on their way to the lake. The stylish rooms and activities concierge make the hotel a great luxury adventure base.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Sigiriya to Colombo airport by car takes 2-3h and it is a further 3-4h on to Godellawela on the southern coast, or a short sea-plane transfer.
  • Weather: except the cooler mountain areas, Sri Lanka is hot all year. Tropical showers are frequent (less in Dec-Mar).

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

With dense, warm jungle all around, ancient temple complexes to the north and east, cool tea plantations in the mountains to the south and beautiful beaches just a day’s drive away, this area is packed with activities to excite your body, mind and spirit. Take time to enjoy the small things, such as a simple but refreshing jungle shower viewed from the comfort of your hotel. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

What it feels like to be there...

With its beautiful 5* villas located on white sandy beaches between calm coral seas and pristine primary jungle Peninsular Malaysia is a place that really knows how to do luxury adventures. Grab your khakis and swing through the trees with the monkeys, before cooling off with a snorkel over bright and bountiful reefs.

  • Major: Scuba-diving, Jungle-treks, Cooking-classes, Art-classes, Nature-walks, Canopy-walks, Spa/Massage.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Kuala Terengganu and Kuantan are around 1h away by car and have well-connected regional airports.
  • Weather: it is warm and humid all year round, with short daily showers in the cooler season, Nov-Feb
  • Warning: Taman Negara is a remote jungle – the canopy walk and waterfalls are fantastic, but getting there can be tough.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The East Coast of Malaysia feels light years away from the bustle of daily life, but you don’t feel isolated in a tourist bubble, you are part of a living and breathing community. A short walk down the exclusive beach or a trip to the jungle, river or islands will bring you into the lives of friendly locals, who are happy to share their arts, beliefs, traditions and exciting foods.

What it feels like to be there...

Borneo has all the ingredients for an amazing adventure: colourful coral reefs, turquoise seas, white sand, dense jungle, deep dark caves, a towering mountain, and an orangutan or two. What more could you need? How about a stylish eco-lodge to relax in while you observe - and help conserve - this island paradise? 

What to do there…

Kinabalu is packed with activities and perfect for 5 to 7 days:
  • Major: Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Jungle-treks, Nature-walks, Ecology, Orangutan-watching, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Mountain-treks, Swimming, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

The 4.5* Gayana Eco Resort has 52 over-water cabins and is a great base from which to experience the coral-rich waters off Borneo. Situated on a jungle covered island near Kota Kinabalu, you can drop straight from your room into nature, or grab a boat to the mainland for a trip to the orangutan sanctuaries or Mount Kinabalu.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Kota Kinabalu (<1h away) is the main travel hub for the region. Overland and sea travel are slow, but interesting.
  • Weather: hot and humid all year round. Expect a short but spectacular daily jungle shower Nov-Jan.
  • Warning: Sarawak is a remote jungle area and while its better hotels and restaurants are good, they are not yet comparable with the high-end luxury of Peninsular Malaysia.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Being able to actively conserve the natural environment you have come to see is a great addition to the eco-lodge experience. Gayana has an on-site Marine Ecology Center where you can plant corals and propagate endangered giant clams during your stay. If you want more, take a magnificent overnight trip to Sandakan’s orangutan sanctuary and Turtle Island, or a day trip to nearby Rasa Ria’s bijou sanctuary.

What it feels like to be there...

Sumba is a remote Indonesian island with a strong tribal culture. Its people are inspired by the beautiful, fish-stocked sea and lush jungle – and they wait to welcome you into their fold. Learn their ways and live out an adventure story from the comfort of a luxury villa set on over 2km of private beach in a 400-acre tropical estate. 

What to do there…

Sumba is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:
  • Major: Fishing, Scuba-diving, Surfing, Sailing, Cultural-visits, Horse-riding, Cycling, Jungle-treks, Nature-walks, Bird-watching, Art-classes, Spa/Massage, Community-projects.
  • Other: Cooking-classes, Yoga, Meditation, Swimming.

Where to stay…

Nihiwatu is an ultra-boutique 5* hotel with just 7 beach bungalows and 3 two-bedroom villas. Its huge private estate is an ideal place to explore and seek out your own little piece of adventure heaven. Whether you are in the jungle, a fertile paddy field or somewhere on the 2,500m of exclusive white sandy beach, the opportunities to lose yourself and have fun are endless.

 

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: charter flights to Tambolaka airport on Sumba take 1.5h from Bali, followed by a scenic 1.5h drive to Nihiwatu. You will need at least one night in Bali for flight connections.
  • Weather: tropical, hot and humid, with daily short bursts of heavy rain in the wet-season, Nov-Feb.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

One comment in the guest book says it all: ‘I still can’t believe this place actually exists.’ It is a rare privilege to find a hotel as dedicated to its community as it is to delivering perfect service to its guests. Best of all, the communities of Sumba will welcome and revere you just because you are a Nihiwatu guest, so take a break from yoga, surfing, fishing and relaxing to spend some time with them.
