Sri Lanka offers a great experience and holiday for families. Sunshine and warm sea, tonnes of fun activities and cultural experiences and a land renowned for its friendliness - it's a recipe for family holiday success.
The island of Sri Lanka is shaped like an enormous teardrop falling from the southern tip of India, separated by a series of stepping-stone coral islets. This lovely island has known Portuguese, Dutch and English colonisation, and today still displays a fascinating blend of local and old colonial cultures in a landscape of upland tea plantations, jungles and a coastline of palm-fringed beaches.

The North-Western Province region
Travel North away from the airport up the bustling main road that runs parallel to the coast,, passing through small towns with such names as Nainamadama,Wennappuwa and Katuneriya eventually after some 40 Kilometres we turn towards the sea along small un-adopted lanes to reach the small fishing settlement at Marawila. The area has been heavily influenced by various foreigners over centuries and many of the local population are catholic, so don't be surprised to see a few large churches in this area fondly known locally as little Rome. The local folk still derive their meagre income from the sea and small holdings, although increasingly many commute to the small factories that are springing up providing much needed work. The beach along this stretch of coast is sandy and wide, ideal for sun worshipping and beach games.
Marawila is a fishing village located 67km north of Colombo, midway between Negombo and Chilaw. The fine sandy and wide beach coupled with the dense jungle that attracts many rare species of migrant birds has made a tourist attraction.
Marawila is another humble fishing settlement of Sri Lanka which affords the sights of fishermen mending their fishing nets, repairing their wooden outrigger boats that would go fishing in the night by stars.
A quite a few large churches along the road from Negombo to Marawila and in the areas surrounding Marawila with its catholic community testify to the Portuguese heritage of the area.
Restaurent -Port 55
½ km away from my home in Marawila Town.
The view of the ocean tantalises the taste buds with stories of spicy sea-food. Preparations of crab meat & squid, succulent shrimp & tangy fish curry-open secrets of this tiny tropical island-are laid out before the discerning diner.
Sri Lankan meals, drawn from the soil & oceans of this tropical island are always well-balanced & healthy.We strive to maintain this healthy tradition, by making sure we put no synthetic flavouring or additives, no trans-fats & that our ingredients are always home-grown & authentic. A truly Sri Lankan food experience.
Local favourites like “aappa” (hoppers), “Indi-aappa” (string hoppers) and the cosmopolitan favourite, kottu are in high demand, & one can find it laid out at every meal.
Meat curries & rice dishes make up the main course, while vegetables find their way to the buffet wagon as curries & salads. The indispensable “mallum” a Sri Lankan preparation of various herbs shredded & seasoned with saffron, salt, lime & coconut is a must-try in our spread.
And to top it all off, satisfy your sweet tooth with uniquely Sri Lankan desserts. Fresh tropical fruits add colour to the spread, while curd & treacle add a healthy touch. The jaggery-sweetened Watalappam is an all-time favourite.
The bar adds a completely different dimension to Sri Lankan meals with tropical fruits being transformed into fresh juices and the locally made alcoholic spirit, arrack also available. Our bar serves up cocktails & mock tails of your choice, & is open for bookings for cocktail parties with a difference.
Also you can enjoy Enlish,Italian,Chinees,Thai Cuisine on your request.
