December was the season of travel; one would go out and enjoy the festive holidays, but such is no longer the case. So, in such a situation, how does one enjoy the holidays?
Jetwing Hotels has the answer to that question. They’ve launched a seasonal promotion so everyone gets to enjoy the festivities whilst being in a safe, protected environment. In very exciting news, Jetwing has launched their 12 Days of Christmas programme. For 12 days, one or more of their hotels will put out an offer not to be missed out on, and the best part is that they are e-vouchers, so you can redeem your voucher whenever you feel like you need a vacation, any day until 30 June.
The Morning Brunch spoke to Jetwing Hotels Marketing Executive Isuri Alahakoon regarding the concept behind this programme. “We didn’t want guests to feel like they had to travel immediately during the season after they avail our offers. We gave them the opportunity to wait until the situation settles down and visit our hotels whenever they deem it’s safe for them to travel.” She added that their guests’ comfort and well-being is their number one priority, and that all hotels under their chain have adhered very strictly to the government regulations.
A sweet treat
Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions, Negombo takes a health-conscious twist to the festivities this year, keeping in mind the pandemic going on, so they aim to provide guests with the chance to better their health, while still enjoying a relaxing vacation.
Jetwing Pavilions will also be hosting an extravagant cookie evening as well as a delicious ayurvedic dinner on 21 and 23 December, respectively.
Jetwing Blue, Negombo as an early treat for everyone with a sweet tooth out there, declared their Gingerbread House open on 15 December! It’s a magnificent feat; it’s every chocoholics dream come true.

A charitable gesture

Jetwing St. Andrew’s, Nuwara Eliya, will begin the 12 days with the decoration of the Christmas tree by the help of the children of the Paynter Home and in Galle, Jetwing Lighthouse will host a Family Christmas Party, where guests are encouraged to donate gifts for children of a local orphanage on 21 December.
