Heralded by the first sighting of the crescent moon, Eid-al-fitr, which translates into “Feat of Breaking the Fast”, begins at sunset and sees Muslims around the world ending the month-long fast of Ramadan. Following a specific Islamic prayer called a “salat”, it is customary to engage in the consumption of a sumptuous Eid feast, as well as the donation of money to those in need.
After a month of sacrifice, one deserves a little indulgence, which is why our top picks for an Eid staycation at Marriott Hotels come in so handy. Even if you do not celebrate Eid, a vacation is just what you need in these trying times.
Weligama Bay Marriott Resort and Spa
Weligama, which literally means “sandy village” in Sinhala is known for its gorgeous sandy sweep bay, lapped by turquoise blue waves. The bay is surrounded by protective coral reefs that curb the ferocity of the Indian ocean, making the area perfectly safe for swimming all year round. If you’re a surfing enthusiast, this is your spot, as Weligama is often called the surf capital of Sri Lanka. Weligama Bay Marriott resort and spa, a 5 star hotel, with its breath-taking views of the bay, incredible discounts on rooms, not to mention their delightful, palate-pleasing spreads is the perfect place to enjoy Weligama to its best advantage.
