Friday, 12 June 2015 00:00 -     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

gjLaunched in December 2012, The Kingsbury has contributed quite extensively to the hospitality industry by uplifting the culinary standards and offerings in the country. ‘The Kingsbury Lifestyle’ is a celebration of fine cuisine and luxury living and is the banner under which all Kingsbury promotions are run; it is intended to bring about a cosmopolitan lifestyle to Sri Lankans. Visitors to the country too feel at home as they have access to cuisines and luxuries from across the globe. Also taking into account the growing ‘Foodie’ culture, The Kingsbury Lifestyle is the gateway for such adventures.

A Father

A figure larger than life, the man we all look up to and the hero of our childhoods and in most cases for life. He is the foundation upon which every child builds his world, and yet in the Sri Lankan culture, we are used to expressing our affections for mothers freely and keep our feelings under lock and key when it comes to our fathers.

For all of us who are too busy with our own lives, spending time with those special people in our lives can be even more difficult and that is why special days like Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day are a blessing in disguise. Have these days become commercialised? Yes, as The Kingsbury Manager Corporate Communications and PR Dinithi Somaratne puts it; there is an element of commercialisation as with Christmas in these occasions too. But she went on to say, these days they can also mean so much more in today’s fast paced life. “For a hotel, it’s all about bringing people together and providing them with a platform for a true celebration.” She went to say, “From a guest’s point of view, it is occasions like this that make it possible and more meaningful to devote some quality time to someone who’s truly deserving.”

For this year’s Fathers’ Day, The Kingsbury will be having the famous Caviar and Oyster Sunday Brunch on 21 June at the Harbour Court. This Father’s Day, The Kingsbury as a lead up to 21 June will be giving an opportunity to fathers to express what it means to be a father and celebrate their achievements in nurturing a responsible and caring next generation.

Caviar and Oyster Sunday Brunch at the Harbour Court Spread

The Kingsbury timeless memories – Family portraits

They are all about creating lasting memories and strengthening bonds. As with all glamorous occasions, it starts with getting your family together for a portrait to mark the occasion. The portraits are taken upon entering and printed and given on your way out. The careful attention paid to such memorabilia is important and The Kingsbury takes great pride in creating such timeless memories. 

The Kingsbury tribute to ‘fatherhood’ – ‘Father 

dines free’ 

If evening is the choice for your celebration on Father’s Day, you may choose to dine at Yue Chuan – Chinese restaurant or The Ocean Seafood Restaurant for dinner and it will be on the basis of ‘Father Dines Free’ as it’s a tribute from The Kingsbury for all those great fathers whom have contributed to our society and our nation.  The Kingsbury invites families to celebrate this special day with the most important men in their lives; be it your father, grandfather, uncle or godfather, a relative or your father figure from a certain time of your life. It’s on occasions such as these that we can reach out and say ‘thank you for being there for me’!
