Cantaloupe Hotels Group looks to develop Sri Lankan surf tourism

Cantaloupe Hotels Group looks to develop Sri Lankan surf tourism
October 25, 2017

Boutique hotel operator, Cantaloupe Hotels Group, has formed a new partnership with surf tour operator The Perfect Wave that aims to establish Sri Lanka as a world-class surfing destination.

An island nation with golden beaches lapped by the waves of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has untapped natural attributes that could make it a surfing hotspot.

With two upscale boutique hotels in south western city Galle, Cantaloupe Hotels has teamed up 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.

The hotel group 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.

The Perfect Wave partnership and packages will 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.

Cantaloupe Hotels Group Director Nadeem Rajabdeen explains “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.”
