PJ’s “Tranquil Refuge” at Anuradhapura ready in a few months

While both 'Isle of Agnes' and 'Wild J Wadiya’ boutique hotels are going through final planning stages to be ready next year, their owners, the PJ Group says that another of the company’s properties, 'Tranquil Refuge' in Anuradhapura will be ready in a few months.

A company statement cited Prasanna Jayawardena, Chairman PJ Hotels as saying that Isle of Agnes will be sold at US$5000-10,000 a night while they plan to sell Wild J Wadiya at US$1000-2000. "We hope to open our first boutique hotel Tranquil Refuge this year. An all inclusive price of US$250 per person will be charged to include not only our special detox menus but also Ayuruveda and Therapy, Meditation and Yoga,” he said.

Amara Galagoda, spokesperson for the PJ group noted that the architect designated for this set of 'Tranquil Refuge' projects will encompass traditional building practices and materials and the rural cultural heritage of Sri Lanka.

'Tranquil Refuge is set in a rural farming region between the ancient city of Anuradhapura and Willpattu Wildlife Park. For millennia, this region has harmonized nature with the human requirement to live in tranquility with all around one.

Long before the words, biodiversity, eco-friendliness, biodegradable or even conservation of wildlife were in common parlance the region had the cosmopolitan city of Anuradhapura, which was declared a wildlife sanctuary over 2000 years ago,” she said.

She added that Tranquil Refuge is trying to capture at least a fraction of “what our forefathers achieved to balance their minds, bodies and souls in the limited time they walked this earth”.
