Cantaloupe Hotels Group Catches ‘The Perfect Wave’

November 14, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Leading boutique hotel operator, Cantaloupe Hotels Group, has formed a new partnership with ‘The Perfect Wave’, the world’s largest surf travel network, to offer a series of exciting Sri Lankan surfing packages for experienced surfers and beginners alike. 

Cantaloupe Hotels Group, which currently operates two trendy upscale hotels in Galle – Cantaloupe Aqua and Cantaloupe Levels – is also in the process of creating a new Surf School at ‘Lazy Left’ in Midigama, the spiritual home of Sri Lankan surfing on the island’s south coast. This will also be the location of Cantaloupe’s brand-new seafront hotel, Cantaloupe Veralu Verala, which is expected to open in 2018 and will become the only upscale hotel in Sri Lanka focused primarily on the surfing market.

As an island nation with golden beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean waves, Sri Lanka has all the natural attributes needed to become a surfing hotspot. The partnership with ‘The Perfect Wave’ is set to establish Sri Lanka as a world-class surfing destination, revealing some untapped surfing spots. It will also help boost visitor arrivals from several key markets, including Australia, while positioning Sri Lanka as an attractive alternative to traditional surfing destinations such as Bali.

“’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,” said Nadeem Rajabdeen, Director of Cantaloupe Hotels Group. “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,” he added.

Beach-loving Australians now have easier access to Sri Lanka with the new daily direct service with Sri Lankan Airlines from Melbourne to Colombo, which launched at the end of October 2017.

The ‘Surf Experience’ packages at the two properties in Galle are available from now until 30 April 2018 for the 2017-18 winter surfing season. Guests can enjoy 4-night/5-day or 7-night/8-day packages at Cantaloupe Aqua and Cantaloupe Levels. The packages include ocean-facing accommodation, lessons for inexperienced surfers or professional guide services for those seeking the best breaks, shuttle services to Sri Lanka’s top surfing spots, airport transfers and free Wi-Fi.

Prices start from just AU$1,235 (based on double occupancy) for the 4-night/5-day package at Cantaloupe Aqua or AU$1,560 for the same duration at Cantaloupe Levels.

The 7-night/8-day packages start from AU$1,950 at Cantaloupe Aqua or AU$2,535 at Cantaloupe Levels.

Surrounded by the pure blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a year-round surfing destination and marine tourism paradise. 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.
