Only Rs. 1,250 will be charged per child. Browns Hotels intends to continue this promotional service till the end of April 2019. 

Perfectly positioned in the eastern coast of Sri Lanka, The Calm is just a walk away from the breathtaking Passikudah beach which is renowned for its shallow coastlines and mesmerising blue waters. The resort is elegantly designed with tastefully appointed rooms and suites with vast open spaces to unwind.  Equipped with a restaurant, bar and a swimming pool, this resort is ideal for a relaxing holiday and is the best escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Amongst its latest offerings is the Vandalouse Bar at which guest can enjoy an exhilarating experience filled with drinks and amazing music to dance on.
