England Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 2014
Inspection Report - Negombo / Colombo

The large majority of our travellers will be spending some time here at the start of the tours.

Located a mere 12km (20 minutes drive) from Colombo International airport, Negombo offers a great base for the fixtures at the Premadsa stadium with transfers times around 55 minutes each way.

Our chosen properties, the ‘Jetwing Beach and Jetwing Sea’ are both beach fronting and guests will not be disappointed with the high quality facilities available at each. The sea should also be swimmable during your stay.

The facilities at each property are so good there is little reason to leave the resort but if you fancy venturing onto the main road there is an array of restaurants, bars, nightlife, shops and outlets to keep you busy.

The two properties are approximately 1km apart.

1st, 2nd & 7th ODIs
R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium

Located approximately 55 minutes’ drive from Negombo on Colombo’s No. 17 Quarter, North of the CBD, the Premadasa Stadium has a seating capacity of 35,000 and was totally renovated for the Cricket World Cup in 2011.

We have reserved the best grandstand seating for all travellers, during the inspection we viewed each and every available air conditioned box. We found these to be of very poor quality and all had restricted views.

There is a lift available to our chosen seating and only a few stairs to navigate to our specific seats.

If you would still like to have the comfort of an air conditioned box, we can organise this for you, please contact us.
