The usually still waters of the Negombo lagoon played host to an event quite unlike any other, with thrills, spills, laughter and much fun. Jet Water Sports began its operations at the picturesque Jetwing Lagoon in grand fashion, with the opening of the first water sports centre to be situated in a lagoon.
From 11 a.m. onwards, guests participated in an opening ceremony that began with speeches by Jet Water Sports Managing Director Thilanga Sumathipala and Jetwing Chairman Hiran Cooray. Followed by a presentation and demonstration about the numerous water activities available, the attendees were in for a real treat – to actually participate in the activities themselves!
Many embraced the chance, queuing up for banana boat rides, water skiing, wakeboarding, and jet skiing whilst a regular schedule of speedboat rides kept the others entertained. All these activities along with others such as courses in skiing, boat ride excursions to popular sites such as the Negombo harbour, Hamilton Canal and the Muthurajawela wetland will be available at the hotel at attractive rates.
Speaking at the event, Hiran Cooray stressed on the unique aspects of Jetwing Lagoon by saying that “Ever since we launched the resort, we have kept adding in dimensions to the property that have seen immense success – beginning with the beautiful beach and lounge area opposite the hotel, the newly developed Ayurveda spa, and now water sports. We look forward to seeing this fresh venture thrive, and to be popular with all our guests as well as those who visit Negombo.”
