Tailormade News – December 2014


Dear Friends,

The year is almost over, and that brings us to my favourite time of the year!

2014 was a great year for Sri Lanka and particularly for Sri Lanka’s Tourism. This obviously means that we at Jetwing has also had a fabulous year. Product Sri Lanka is developping rapidly, the highways have made accessibility convenient and speedy and 2 more highways – one to Kandy and another to Jaffna has already commenced!, new shopping and dining options are now available, the Independence Arcade in Colombo 7, by the Independence Square, the Floating market in Pettah comes to my mind instantly. They were both locations that were severly underutilised and now restored to its glory.

In addition to this, media in France, Australia to name a few is heralding Sri Lanka as an interesting and must visit destination.

Many new Hotels have also been opened in the last quarter. The Cinnamon Red in Colombo, some in Kandy, Nuwaraeliya, Dambulla etc. On 1st December Jetwing is launching its second Hotel J branded property , this time on the famed Hikka beach – Bansei by Hotel J. It is slap bang on the beach and gives the visitor a truly fabulous experience. I hope you will get to visit it at some point during your visits. We have also commenced operations on our very own Houseboat, Yathra by Jetwing. You need to experience this, either an overnight stay or simply as a day excursion or you may want to treat some of your friends and family to a brand new experience this festive season.

Our projects in Colombo, Dambulla, Jaffna and Wellawaya are progressing well. We are about to start a new venture, Amazing Adventures and will share more on it next time. Our Eco Division, Jetwing Eco Holidays are developping some fabulous wellness and holistic experiences to calm the busy mind. I am sure it will be useful to all of us.

Let me end by thanking you for your support and faith in Sri Lanka and in particular to Jetwing this year. It has been tremendous and we are humbled by it. Thank you for your understanding about any lapses we may have had and for giving us another important chance to make good, we truly appreciate that. Let us build on this and make our relationship even stronger in 2015!

With Renewed thanks and sincere wishes for a holy X’mas and a rocking Holiday season!
