As we are a couple from multi nations (Japan & Maldives), we were looking for a place to have our wedding party a different way from the typical wedding parties. Therefore we have spent huge amount of our time researching the Internet and calling friends for their suggestions, and finally we found Fire Dragon Hideaway located in Katana (Which is situated in a very convenient place in Negombo, Sri Lanka). Below we would like to explain our experiences for those who want to choose this place for their wedding, any other celebrations or even a family holiday.

LOCATION
First of all, the huge advantage this place has is; it is very close to Colombo airport, which is the Main airport in Sri Lanka, and takes only maximum 20 minutes by a taxi. We had a group of 20 people arriving from different parts of the world and Mr. Hassan & Ms. Sarah (The owners of the location) arranged the airport transportation according to the arrival time of our guests. They were professional and very very helpful as well since our guests didn't need to look for a taxi by themselves even in midnight or early morning. The short distance between the airport and the guesthouse made our guests feel more comfortable too as most of them flew long way from their home.
There is accommodation available on site. They had 4 cabanas and a huge family room with hot & cold water, cabled TV, A/C, and complimentary drinking water, tea, coffee and Wifi which was fast enough. Moreover the place has swimming pool with sunbeds & umbrellas of course and great vegetation for whole area as look like botanical garden! (you will find some fruits and beautiful flowers)
Most importantly the location was very private since the walls cover whole place and surrounded local residences, not shops or loud noises. We were always with only our family and friends on site, and they could relax & enjoy the warm weather during the free time, which was very pleasant.
As well as they have private chef as we always enjoyed their foods without getting bored (we have stayed over 2 weeks there).

PARTY ARRANGEMENT
I and my wife arrived 15 days before the schedule of our wedding party in order to make sure everything is in place and discuss our plans with Mr. Hassan & Ms. Sarah on the spot.
To be honest we were impressed with the choices we had, from selecting the flower arrangements to the lighting, food, transfers, choice of photography and so on since we were really not sure if could find proper service provider in a suburb area. It was not expensive like other parts of the world, very reasonable and best for value of money. We arranged everything locally, Wedding cake, Flower decoration for the reception (includes fresh flower bouquet), DJ for our party, Professional Photographer for a day (our party was from morning till night!), Lighting decorations, tailoring our dresses, daily activities such as city tour and sight seeing for our group.
For sure you can fully rely on Hassan & Sarah’s Advice and they are capable of arranging everything. “You name it, they arrange it”. Of course there were some issues that those 3rd parties didn't fully understand what we wanted since we don't speak local language. However Hassan & Sarah always had tried very hard to correct misunderstanding to make sure our wishes would be delivered.

PARTY ORGANIZATION (THE DAY OF OUR PARTY)
As we wanted to make our wedding party enjoyable one for everyone, our program of party was for whole one day. Of course Hassan & Sarah have helped us a lot to make great program which doesn't make our guest be bored until mid night.
Starting from group breakfast as the menu was Sri Lankan that our guests had really enjoyed! Followed by ‘Sports day’ which Sarah planned for us as my wife had wanted to have some games without language barrier during our party, and was hilarious!! We have played easy & silly sports as dividing two teams of groom & bride. Thanks to big garden and swimming pool they have! Then there were little bites with iced tea & fresh watermelon juice and free time for our guests.
We had renewal of vows as our ceremony and they have arranged seats for guests perfectly according to our main flower decoration. The early evening, we did cake cutting and had little drink time before the dinner. The dinner menu was made by Sarah according to our requests and was good as we expected. Our dinner was slow and easy as our guests wanted to enjoy talking and look at beautiful moon in between the courses.
After dinner, we had DJ until midnight and as a surprise for me my wife, Hassan & Sarah had planned my birthday celebration at 12 o’clock! They have made fire works at the garden and played secret celebration video on TV. We were very happy that they organized this surprise celebration along with our wedding party as my wife couldn't prepared for that in order to keep it as a surprise for me, therefore secretly they have done all the preparation for us.
Overall, as you imagine we had really really fun and memorable day. I and my wife gave only rough ideas to Hassan & Sarah, however they made completed schedule according to our wishes and made it real even better than we imagined. Even our guests asked us that how we came up this program and they have never had wedding party like ours. Thus big thanks to Hassan & Sarah and Fire Dragon Hideaway team for making our dream come true.
BIG THANX
