A new tropical beach front Feast site has been opened up to us this year which should be very convenient for overseas visitors where they can enjoy a peaceful unhurried setting and concentrate on the real meaning of God’s soon-coming Kingdom away from the hassles of the world.
The Goldi Sands hotel (http://www.goldisands.com/) is located near the town of Negombo, about 20 minutes north by road from the Colombo (Bandaranaike) International Airport, which means visitors can easily travel to the Feast Site, no matter what time of the day or night they arrive at the airport.
The hotel is located in a quiet sea-side setting, surrounded by coconut palms and greenery, which extends to the golden beach sands. A restaurant, a large freshwater swimming pool, and a gymnasium are some of the many amenities. Your room costs will include a hearty breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, so there is no more to pay for the length of the Feast, unless you would like to enjoy some optional extras. All the brethren will be staying at the hotel and the meeting hall for services is a few minutes walking distance from your room.
One of the highlights of the Feast is the fine fellowship that you can enjoy with all the brethren, beginning with an early morning leisurely walk along the beach sands and finishing off with the evening activities with brethren of like mind. During the Feast, a number of activities are available, including a trip to the colorful “Negombo fish market”, the picturesque “Dutch canal Negombo” where hundreds of colourful fishing boats are moored, an enjoyable boat ride through the “Muthurajawela Bird sanctuary”. A trip can be organized after the Feast to the “Wilpattu National park”, one of the best wildlife park in Sri Lanka, famous for leopards, bears and other wild life or feed the elephants and watch dozens of them bath in the river at the “Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage”. For further information on each tourist attraction, please check the internet about each of the quotes above.
Your Sri Lankan brethren, all of whom speak English very well, extend their warm welcome and look forward to keeping the 2017 Feast of Tabernacles with you!
