The West Coast of Sri Lanka, idyllic, enchanting and a magical getaway along the shores where you can witness the stunning beauty of a sunset as it paints the sky in hues of crimson. It is amidst this backdrop that you can enjoy what is bound to be a truly unforgettable honeymoon! When it comes to West Coast destinations, Negombo is easily the best locale for such a holiday for newlyweds. If you are in search of honeymoon hotels in Sri Lanka along this stretch of coast then Club Hotel Dolphin makes an ideal option since it lets you experience the best the region has to offer including the chance to have a beach wedding; after all what better place to celebrate the beginning of your new chapter of love.

Staying along the beach offers its own set of charms and couples can wake up to the sight of dawn slowly breaking across the horizon, while waves rush to shore. The adventure is just beginning though! Couples can choose to spend their day lazing in the sun together, getting to know more about each other or if they prefer engage in fun and exciting water sports. Waterskiing, snorkelling, kite surfing and even diving are available for intrepid travellers looking to explore the fascinating marine world that lies beneath the waves.

More laidback couples can opt to explore Negombo town which offers its own set of thrills. The town is known as “Little Rome” for its abundance of Roman Catholic churches, many of which date back to the Portuguese colonial times. Another fascinating colonial attraction is undoubtedly the Dutch Canal, where you have the option to take a boat and explore this ancient waterway.

As day turns to night, take a stroll along the shores during sunset. Nothing to beat walking barefoot hand in hand along the sand as the sun dips below the horizon, with the sound of the waves gently rushing to shore serenading the both of you. Indulge in a couple’s spa treatment followed by a romantic meal on the beach, lost in each other’s eyes as a myriad of stars adorn the night sky and the promises of love whispers through the cool night air.

You will have many options regarding the actual details of your wedding.

An excellent option would be to choose a traditional Sri Lankan wedding ceremony complete with traditional oil lamps, threaded jasmine blooms and a special wedding platform. If you so desire you may opt for other traditional elements such as local Buddhist rites, skilled Kandyan style dancers, drummers and perhaps even a lavishly bedecked elephant.
You may also choose to avail yourself of the services of a traditional kapuwa, or wedding official. Naturally you will be able to specify other features that you require, such as quality champagne, a menu of your choosing and so on. However no wedding would be complete without a carefree festive party, and you will be able to celebrate the occasion by dancing the night away in a spacious banquet chamber with all of your guests.
