Creating Memories That Last – Jetwing Hotels at the Bridal Fair 2011


Colombo, Sri Lanka -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2011 -- Held for the 15th successful year, the Bridal Fair is Sri Lanka’s premier event for all wedding related matters. Using the concept of providing ‘all wedding needs under one roof’, complementing Jetwing Hotels’ comprehensive and tailored wedding and honeymoon packages perfectly. Held at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention Center, from the 16th-18th of September, all brides to be, and couples very much in love are warmly welcome at the Jetwing Hotels’ stall.

Offering above and beyond the standard wedding and honeymoon package, Jetwing Hotels seeks to create the literal fairytale wedding, and honeymoon that will leave the fondest of memories to last a lifetime. From the majestic grandeur of the The Ballroom at Jetwing Blue, and the beauty of the Eddystone Hall at Jetwing Lighthouse, or the sun kissed and wind strewn sands of Jetwing Beach, the dream wedding is only a few days away... As for the first days of the rest of your lives together, bliss, comfort, privacy and seclusion are a must. Hear the wind whisper through the sheaves of paddy, with the early sound of the birds in song at Jetwing Vil Uyana or nestle in the cool hills of Nuwara Eliya at Jetwing St. Andrew’s on a honeymoon never to be forgotten.

“We will be making the most of this year’s opportunity by adding a Jetwing twist into traditional perceptions as Jetwing Hotels are now a firm favourite for weddings and honeymoons” said Ishanth Gunewardene, Head of Sales and Marketing for Jetwing. “This time around we will be hosting a raffle draw where among other prizes, the Grand Draw will offer one lucky couple the opportunity to win a honeymoon stay at Jetwing’s upcoming project, Jetwing Lagoon. This property has the prestige of being the immortal Bawa’s first resort in the island, and is currently being recreated in line with his original design, overlooking the Negombo lagoon”, he continued.

Family owned and in the tourism industry for the past 38 years, Jetwing Hotels has surpassed expectation at every aspect. Building on their foundation of being passionate, as well as providing a true, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality experience and constantly pioneering discoveries captures the essence of the brand. Such a strong statement and direction have enabled Jetwing Hotels to imagine and create marvels and masterpieces, where distinctive design and elegant comfort complement each other and the environment.

Considered by many to be ‘overambitious’, properties such as Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle and Jetwing Vil Uyana in Sigiriya are now icons; Jetwing Lighthouse being the creation of the immortal Geoffery Bawa, Jetwing Vil Uyana rightly described as a ‘magical, enchanting property where man and nature meet, and are at once inexplicably linked’. Along with Jetwing Beach in Negombo, the first product in the Bawa-Jetwing relationship, both properties are members of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

The birthplace of Jetwing, Negombo, with its inviting small town charm, sandy beaches and spicy nightlife remains close to the company’s heart, with 4 properties: Jetwing Blue, the former Blue Oceanic Beach Hotel which was Jetwing’s first, now relaunched after a massive re-vision along with Jetwing Sea, Jetwing Beach, and Sri Lanka’s first purpose built health resort, Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions. Other locations include Jetwing St. Andrew’s and Jetwing Warwick Gardens nestled high up in the hill country, and Jetwing Kurulubedda in Galle.

The Family continues to grow, with the extremely private and exclusive Era Beach, the historic Tangalla Bay, Galle Heritage Villa within the Fort of Galle, and Dedduwa Boat House all under the wings of Jetwing.
