REVITALISE HOLIDAYS BY ETG
For this new era in travel, we’re paving the way for a different kind of restorative holiday. Revitalise is a collection of eighteen trips that capture the essence of an ETG holiday - discovery, connection and authentic experiences - with a holistically relaxing twist. Rather than dashing in and out of planes, trains and automobiles or box-ticking famous sites, we've slowed down the pace. Whether it's an immersive safari, a gentle cruise on the Irrawaddy River or a wellness escape in Sumba, the aim is to reflect and revitalise, while still engaging with the world around you. Choose from six themes and start dreaming; this is the kind of relaxation every curious traveller needs.
Popular Revitalise Holidays
SAFARI AND SOUTH COAST CHARM
Follow the curve of Sri Lanka’s southern coastline from Gal Oya, an immersive national park brimming with unique experiences, to the Last House in Tangalle, a beachside hotel at the end of a long stretch of sand. By taking in these two remote locations, you will get a sense of the island’s dazzling natural wealth at just an inch off the map from the well-trodden path.
Timeless Thai Terrains
Often in Thailand, travellers feel the need to rush around and tick off the sights. But by focussing on just two contrasting regions, this holiday will help you discover the culture and extraordinary beauty that the country is known for. In the first, you can explore temples and jungles by day then return to the authentic countryside by night; in the second, experience the ultimate Thai beach escape.
Beauty of Bali, Kings of Komodo
Indonesia is home to thousands of islands of infinite possibilities, with landscapes that feel beyond this earth. This holiday encompasses two fantastic hotels in Bali and Komodo. Each property feels off-the-grid but is surprisingly simple to reach, and offers stunning surroundings with the opportunity for once-in-a-lifetime encounters with the natural world.
