An off-grid holiday in Sri Lanka

An off-grid holiday in Sri Lanka.

The Cliff Lodge, Haputale was featured on Channel 5’s series, Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild.

The programme aired on the UK’s Channel 5 on the 6th February 2024.

What is an Off-Grid holiday

Sawdays describe an Off-Grid Holiday as “Our off-grid places to stay harness a strong commitment to the environment. They are in beautifully remote regions and encourage you to spend most of your day outdoors.

The Independent Online article “Why ‘going off-grid’ is the next big travel trend” of 15th March 2022.
It stated that “At the beginning of 2022, rentals website One Off Places spotted that their “off-grid” category had zoomed into the top 10 most-browsed sections.”.

The idea of a complete escape (no phones ringing, no emails to answer, no TV schedule to keep up with) can be extremely appealing to many people. 

About The Cliff Lodge, Haputale

The Cliff Lodge consists of four glass pods and provides an opportunity to reconnect with the wilderness, as there is no hot water, electric or gas.

February 6th 2024 - The Channel 5 Documentary with Ben Fogle

There was a lot of press about the programme. 

The Daily Mail Online has a clip and a commentary about the episode “A couple told Channel 5’s New Lives in the Wild about their move to Sri Lanka “.

The couple, Anke and Naveen, told Ben Fogle how they escaped the rat-race in London to live off-grid on top of a mountain in Sri Lanka

Memorable TV Online states that ” Ben Fogle embarks on a journey to Sri Lanka, a stunning island nestled in the Indian Ocean.”.

He meets Anke and Naveen who “he couple resides in the peaceful remains of a tea plantation, embracing an entirely off-grid existence. “.

TV Guide states that Ben discussed why the couple moved away from civilisation, the struggles they had settling into their new lives and if they mean to entirely sever their ties with the outside world

The best of both worlds

Variety is the price of life. You may want to experience a mixture of Off-Grid living and a little bit of luxury whilst on holiday in Sri Lanka. 

Perhaps a stay at The Cliff Lodge followed by some days at GlenMyu Estate will provide you with this experience.
