Forty lucky couples are packing their trendiest suit cases for a luxurious holiday courtesy Arpico Mattress. These couples are the winners of Arpico Mattress ‘Weekend Couple’ contest which ran from June this year.
The eligibility criteria for the competition was quite simple-any customer purchasing a selected Arpico Mattress during the period were eligible to enter the draw.
These ‘Weekend Couples’ will have the best of luxury accommodation at selected Jetwing hotels across the island, where they will spend two days enjoying the best of amenities and some spectacular views.
Some will spend their days basking in the warmth and lazy delights of sun, sea and sand at Jetwing Blue Negombo, Jetwing Sea Negombo and Jetwing Amaloh in Matara. Others will revel in the crisp air and scenic vistas at St. Andrews, NuwaraEliya, or seek thrilling adventures in the wild at Jetwing Yala.
