Tailor-Made News – January 2014

Newsletter — Jetwing eMarketing @ 10:24 am

Dear Friends,

On behalf of all of us at Jetwing, let me wish you a very happy, healthy and successful 2014! We do hope you had an enjoyable holiday season and have slotted in Sri Lanka for your summer or winter break this year. Believe me, you will not be disappointed… Sri Lanka and all those who live here will touch your heart and leave unforgettable memories. Just ask someone who has been here before!

Our newest addition, Jetwing Yala was officially opened by Hon. Basil Rajapaksa, Minister of Economic Development on 27th January, 2014. The date is a special one, being the birthday of our late founder Herbert Cooray and Yala a place very close to his heart. With Jetwing Yala, we intend to recreate the Deep South as a destination of much experiences and activities. There is so much to do in that area. The obvious being the storied Yala National Park with its leopard, elephants and sloth bear, the holy shrine of Kataragama, the historic Sithulpahuwa and the vehera’s at Tissamaharama, the great basses for diving, the Kirinda fishing village etc. etc. It is indeed a pity to spend simply a day and merely visit the National Park. We are in the process of creating many stimulating experiences, enticing you to spend at least 3 nights if not more at Jetwing Yala. The hotel overlooks the Indian Ocean and is embraced by magnificent sand dunes. The glorious beach in front of the hotel is sure to give you the space and the privacy to bask in the sun whilst sipping a cocktail and reading a book may be. If you are not a beach bum, why not try the tempting pool? With the recent opening of the International Airport at Mattala, we are confident that the Deep South will be a much sort after destination before long.

At Jetwing Travels too, we have introduced many new and interesting tour experiences. You could check our websites, including www.srilankanselect.com to view some of them or simply contact us. Colombo will be ablaze once again with the popular Nawam Perehera scheduled to take place next month. The Gangaramaya Temple will once again be the focal point and visitors will be able to enjoy a beautiful pageant once again. This is also the season to climb Adam’s Peak. I am hoping to do so myself before my legs get more wobbly! Believe me, it is certainly a once in a lifetime experience.

Our new office is almost complete and some of us, including myself will move in there. It is right next to our existing office at Nawam Mawatha and will enable us to bring the Jetwing Holidays and Jetwing Air colleagues who are at another location to be with the rest of us. This is an exciting prospect and I look forward to that… which means I have to start packing pretty soon!

From all of us at Jetwing, we hope your year will be eventful, exciting and adventurous!

With warm wishes,

Adam’s Peak (also known as Sri Pada) is Sri Lanka’s holy mountain, where people from all faiths go on pilgrimage to worship the footprint of Lord Buddha or Adam, depending on individual beliefs. Adam’s Peak is a sanctified place of worship to people of all faiths atop a 2, 243 meter high mountain in the southwest corner of the highlands. The Peak happens to be the only mountain in the world, where four major religions gather to worship. Due to its historical significance to various people, the mountain, itself, is referred to by a variety of terms. The pilgrim season will begin from December and continues till May; it is the only pilgrimage season in the country that lasts six months while January and February are the busiest. Approximately 300,000 pilgrims visit Adam’s Peak per year in the period of fine weather, during the long weekends and full moon Poya days.
