Colombo, Sri Lanka, June 23, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Expo Aviation a subsidiary of Expo Lanka Holdings recently announced the launch of “Expo Pavilion” with a view to offer comfortable accommodation in Jaffna Sri Lanka. Amongst the first guest was none other than Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya. Expo Pavilion is ideally positioned on the famous A9 Route on the Kandy Road, a convenient location for anyone who wishes to spend time in the city of Jaffna, northern Ceylon.
During a recent visit to Sri Lanka Ralph Cwerman, US Senate said, “Jaffna is struggling, kicking and fighting back to life, with Expo Pavilion, there is new life in the city.”
Expo Pavilion is a colonial house with 7 large air-conditioned bedrooms and attached bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms are located in the main house and 3 in the adjoining building. These three rooms which have private verandas overlooking the A9 Road are ideal for those looking for complete privacy and the experience of natural ambiance. The rooms are well equipped with WI FI facilities and have over 50 TV Dish channels to choose from.
One of the early guests, John Yoccoumis, UN World Travel Organization Consultant said, “To be able to come back to Jaffna after 32 years is a stroke of good luck. To have found a place like Expo Pavilion has been truly a blessing, as it is such a wonderful little place. They have done an excellent job and my best of wishes goes to the excellent staff.”
The rustic interior is tastefully decorated with vibrant color themes of "Barefoot" branded fabrics and soothing soft lighting projects an extremely relaxing setting and atmosphere. The lounge and restaurant areas are a pleasure with furniture stained in Oakwood colour; the mustard painted walls are adorned with attractive abstract oil paintings and with the morning sunlight streaming through the elegant sheer curtaining. Exquisite pieces of brass and copper antiques in varying shapes and sizes are well blended right throughout Expo Pavilion, commencing from the garden. The driveway to Expo Pavilion is lined by yesteryears doors and door frames which is a feast for the eyes.
Juliet Coombe, BBC lonely Planet, Travel photographer & Writer of "Around the Fort IN 80 lives" wrote, “Expo Pavilion is unique in all of Sri Lanka. I have never met such a special team, the Island may be full of Sri Lanka’s gems, but the staff at Expo is truly the crown jewels, and the food is a credit of Jaffna cuisine.”
The restaurant at Expo Pavilion which is presently restricted to in-house guests offers simple food and features local rice and curry, delicious Jaffna specialties and Chinese Cuisine. It is served by friendly and gracious waiters, rather than the impersonal buffet arrangements. Any request for dining from outsiders will be taken on prior reservations. Confirmation of reservations for dining will be based on the Pavilion occupancy as they do not intend to infringe on the privileges and privacy of its guests.
Expo Aviation also plans to provide a conference room and a private air-conditioned dining lounge at this recently furbished motel. Expo Pavilion organizes tour packages for those wishing to explore the rich cultural heritage of the City of Jaffna and packages which reveal the historic wonders of one of Asia’s most exciting cities.
