Feast of Tabernacles in Sri Lanka

2022 Festival Information - Passikudah, Sri Lanka

Venue: The Amaya Beach Resort in Passikudah

Cherishing the memories of two past Feasts at The Amaya Beach Resort in Passikudah, (2017 & 2018) the Sri Lankan brethren extend a warm invitation to the brethren worldwide to attend the Feast of Tabernacles 2022 with them once again at Amaya Beach Resort!

The beautiful resort is nestled on a vast expanse of golden sandy shore with an unspoiled beach and palm trees on the beautiful Passikudah Bay, a long stretch of coastline renowned for its calm and shallow waters -- ideal for swimming and water sports. It’s situated 325 kilometers from Colombo on the Eastern coastline of the Indian Ocean. The drive will be approximately 5 ½ to 6 hours from Colombo. Local brethren will assist you in coordinating transportation options from the airport or from the city of Colombo to the Feast site.

All brethren will be staying at the Amaya Beach. The hotel will also be the site for services each day in the Vandeloos Bay Ballroom. Services will be in English. 

Family day is a traditional favorite in which you’ll experience a special afternoon full of surprises and fun, followed by another afternoon of cricket, which the whole family can enjoy. The variety show is sure to be a highlight as there is much talent among the Sri Lankan brethren.

Brethren have the unique and enjoyable opportunity to dine together at the Reef Café which provides 3 buffet meals (A la carte) each day, featuring local Sri Lankan dishes as well as excellent international cuisine.  (All meals are included in the room rates).

The hotel has a spa, fitness center, table tennis room, a large swimming pool and a children’s play room. Push cycles can be hired at the hotel for those seeking a ride outside the hotel premise. Rooms are air conditioned and mostly with a beach view. Wi-Fi is free on request.

A visit to Sri Lanka will be a life-changing experience. If you wish to travel internationally and you earnestly desire to enjoy the company and serve your brothers and sisters who live overseas, the Feast in Sri Lanka would be an exceptional opportunity for you. A visit to this tropical island where food is delicious and the brethren are gracious, friendly and enthusiastically desirous to see the coming of God’s Kingdom, is a Feast you’ll not soon forget!

We sincerely seek and appreciate your earnest prayers for God’s blessing on the Feast in Sri Lanka and on all the Feasts around the world where God has chosen to place His name.  ~ David Schreiber
