After an excellent Feast last year, the same tropical beachfront welcomes us again in 2013. Here you can enjoy a peaceful unhurried setting far away from the hassles of the world and concentrate on the meaning of God's Kingdom.
The Feast in Sri Lanka will be held at the Insight Hotel and Resort at Ahangama, a coastal village between Galle and Matara. The garden setting of the hotel, surrounded by coconut palms and greenery and extending to the golden sands along one of the quietest beach areas of Sri Lanka, promises again to be a beautiful and inspiring family site.
Farther around the coast are tropical nature reserves where elephants and other wild animals and birds can be observed in their natural habitat. A side trip before or after the Feast could include the busy fishing village of Negambo, feeding the elephants and watch them bath at the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, or the famous tea factory and plantations at Ambanpitiya.
One of the real highlights of the Feast is the continual close fellowship that is so enjoyable when all the brethren stay at one hotel. Last year we had the hotel almost to ourselves. Looking for somewhere to eat will not be a challenge because room costs include breakfast, lunch and dinner.
International visitors arriving at the Colombo International Airport should arrange to stay at least one night at one of the major hotels such as the Mt. Lavinia Hotel located on the coast or the Cinnamon Grand located in the city centre. You can pre-arrange with your hotel to have a car waiting for you when you arrive at the airport. Using public transport when you first arrive is not recommended.
Travel to the Feast Site:
Option One: Your hotel can arrange the hire of an air-conditioned van from one of the taxi companies. Along the way you can visit the Turtle hatchery along the Galle road; stop and drink from King coconuts at the many fruit stands; visit the gem workshop and see the displays of Sri Lankan gems at Aida Resort at Bentota; or stop at the historic Dutch Fort town of Galle, which pre-dates the presence of the Dutch East India Company.
Option Two: If you prefer, you can travel directly to the feast site with the Sri Lankan brethren in the air-conditioned coach. Contact the Festival Coordinator for more details.
Your Sri Lankan Brethren extend their warm welcome and look forward to keeping the Feast of Tabernacles 2013 with you!
