Feast of Tabernacles in Sri Lanka

2019 Festival Information - Kalatura, Sri Lanka

Venue: Royal Palms Beach Hotel

The Sri Lankan brethren extend a warm invitation to their brothers and sisters worldwide to attend the Feast of Tabernacles 2019 in Sri Lanka. The island country is in the Northern Indian Ocean.  The Feast will be held at the Royal Palms Beach Hotel on the Southwestern coastline of Sri Lanka, known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean. The beautiful beach resort is just 40 km from Colombo which is about a 1 ½ hour drive and 83km  from the Colombo International Airport (about 2 hours drive).  Local brethren will assist in coordinating transportation options from the airport or from the city of Colombo to the Feast site at request.  (Transportation costs are uncertain at this point of time but an estimate would be in the range +/- SLR 6,300 or $35 USD for a car or for an eight seater van SLR 10,000 or $55 USD.) 

A visit to Sri Lanka will be a life-changing experience.

All brethren will be staying at the Royal Palms. The hotel 'Banquet Hall' will also be the site for church services each day.  Services will be in English.

Feast attendees have the unique and enjoyable opportunity to dine together at the hotel which provides 3 buffet meals each day, featuring local Sri Lankan dishes as well as excellent international cuisine. The main restaurant offers beach views from their open terrace. Guests are entitled to all three buffet meals included in the room costs. There is also a poolside 24-hour coffee shop and tea/coffee set up in the rooms.

Rooms are set in tropical landscapes and have private balconies. Air conditioned rooms are furnished with carved wood fittings and warm colors. Guests can exercise at the gym (free of charge) or play a leisurely game of billiards (chargeable). 

Family day in Sri Lanka is a traditional afternoon favorite in which feast goers experience a special day full of games, surprises and fun.  Cricket, which the whole family and every international visitor is given a chance to play, is great fun. Lastly — the Feast Variety Show is sure to be a highlight as there is much talent amongst the Sri Lankan brethren.

If you wish to travel internationally and you earnestly desire to enjoy the company and serve your brothers and sisters who live overseas, the Feast in Sri Lanka would be an exceptional opportunity for you. A visit to this tropical island where food is delicious and the brethren are gracious, friendly and enthusiastically desirous to see the coming of God’s Kingdom, is a Feast you’ll not soon forget!

We sincerely seek and appreciate your earnest prayers for God’s blessing on the Feast in Sri Lanka and on all the Feasts around the world where God has chosen to place His name.
