Goodies aims to impress not just with its festive food, but also with the festive atmosphere created just for the season. Whilst the rest of the hotel is elegantly decorated in line with the theme ‘Festive Reflections’ which builds upon the reflective nature of its lake and pool, Goodies has been turned into a little haven for children.
The hotel’s engineering team, led by Chief Engineer Panduka Wijeyawardena, together with the hotel’s kitchen artistes, has stationed an almost life-sized train at Goodies. The train was conceptualised and built by the teams complete with carriages that are bound to have kids squealing with excitement as they can climb in and out of it. They will even be able to watch children’s movies that will be projected onto a screen, from the comfort of the train!
