Eid Staycation at Weligama Bay Marriott Resort & Spa.

By Janani Vithanage

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. 

Room Rates

1st- 5th May 2022: USD 135 per person on half board basis

6th and 7th May 2022: USD 155 per person on half board basis

This offer is applicable to all Superior Ocean View rooms on both single and double occupancy.  

All their incredibly spacious, light-filled rooms are home to luxurious bedding, marble-detailed bathrooms with indulgently oversized tubs, complimentary Wifi and private balconies that enable you to gaze upon the astonishing beauty of the ocean in complete solitude and peace. 

The hotel also offers refreshing, hearty breakfast spreads to ensure that you get just the right start to your day, as well a special Eid thematic dinner buffet, beautifully curated to reflect on the true meaning and joy of this festival. 

And that isn’t all, there’s more! Recharge and wind down at the hotel’s stunningly architectured  swimming pool or get your muscles back in shape at their fully equipped modern gym.

 They even offer an unbelievable 20% off on all treatments at their in-house “Quan Spa”, which is the perfect way to pamper your body and mind, so that you may return to the hustle and bustle of everyday life feeling completely reinvigorated! Make sure you make your bookings in advance.
