THE sands of the famed Negombo beach carry memories with the wind; seeing much change over the years, such as the former Blue Oceanic Hotel being magically transformed into a property of luxury and elegance, renamed the Jetwing Blue. The product of a massive re-creation exercise undertaken on the Negombo sea front, transforming the Blue Oceanic to the ethereal blue that is now Jetwing Blue was no small task.
A tireless effort spanning several months is now slowly but surely taking shape as the Jetwing Blue throws open its new doors, come April 2011.
The new layouts are so designed that upon entry, one sees straightaway, the idyllic stretch of sand and beyond it the azure expanse of the Indian Ocean. The once six room hotel now boasts 112 exquisite rooms including six skyline suites which redefines the phrase ‘heaven on earth’ and underwrites the thought of tranquillity blending with elegance. With every imaginable luxury being at your finger tips, Jetwing Blue will offer an experience as opposed to a mere hotel stay.
Dining is unique to say the least, with the Show Kitchen encompassing the main restaurant. Each menu preparation is meticulously prepared, with finesse and flair by star class chefs operating gleefully from separate action stations offering different cuisine.
Backed up by the finest equipment, Jetwing Blue is a feast for the tongue, a true taste bud extravaganza. Other facilities include two swimming pools, as well as a spa on the second floor bringing that exquisite view of the Indian Ocean while the indulgence of a variety of treatments is yours to enjoy!
Jetwing Blue is in the process of completing its crown jewel, the 600 seat conference and banqueting hall which will be the largest of its kind in the Negombo area. Whether it is for the wedding of dreams or important business meetings, the hall promises to be the ideal best equipped best located conference and banquet facility with a 20 minute access to the Katunayake International Airport. To the international as well as local traveller, what the Jetwing Blue thus offers is an excellent opportunity to engage in one’s business and yet enjoy a corner of the world that continues to retain a charm all its own.
With so much more to be discovered, the arrival of Jetwing Blue is now breaking news! Negombo has long been an unrivalled haven for Jetwing, with four other properties; Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions, the first purpose built health resort in the island, Jetwing Beach, a paradise of leisure, the recently launched Jetwing Sea, which lures you into the ocean, and now the Jetwing Blue, which is here to stay on the golden sands of Negombo.
