Cantaloupe Hotels Group has formed a new partnership with The Perfect Wave with the aim of establishing Sri Lanka as a world-class surfing destination.
Cantaloupe Hotels Group, which currently operates two boutique hotels in Galle, has teamed up with the world’s largest surf travel network, to offer a series of packages and a new Surf School at “Lazy Left” in Midigama. This will also be the location of Cantaloupe’s new seafront hotel, Cantaloupe Veralu Verala, which is expected to open in 2018 and will become the only upscale hotel in Sri Lanka focused on the surfing market.
Nadeem Rajabdeen, director of Cantaloupe Hotels Group, said: “The Perfect Wave is the perfect partner for Cantaloupe Hotels Group, as we aim to realise the full potential of upmarket surf tourism in Sri Lanka. We look forward to welcoming experienced surfers and first-time visitors who want to discover Sri Lanka’s superb surfing breaks and beachfront beauty.
“Together with The Perfect Wave, we have put together some fantastic packages that allow guests to experience some of the island’s top surf spots, including Lazy Left, where our new Surf School will be located. For surfers seeking a new and unspoiled surfing destination, or adventurous travellers wanting a beach break with a difference, Sri Lanka is the perfect choice.”
The launch of the “Surf Experience” packages follows the recent unveiling of Cantaloupe Hotels Group’s “Big Blue” packages, which include whale-watching trips and other sustainable oceanic experiences.
