News Release

Ceylinco Life breaks new ground with Sri Lanka’s first Retirement Resort

Opens ‘La Serena’ – fully-serviced 44-unit facility on the beach at Uswetakeiyawa for active retirees

Tuesday, 16th May 2017: Can life truly begin at 60? Sri Lanka’s life insurance leader Ceylinco Life believes the answer is yes, for ‘active retirees,’ and has created the country’s first retirement resort for this segment.

Built along the lines of a medium-sized resort hotel, ‘La Serena’ comprises of 44 self-contained, fully furnished, equipped and serviced living units, which will be offered on short or long term rent to active retirees seeking to live independently without the hassles of maintaining and running their own homes.

Occupying almost three acres of scenic beachfront land at Uswetakeiyawa, just 14 km north of Colombo, the resort comprises of 28 standard single bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom semi-luxury units, built around common facilities including a swimming pool, mini gym, restaurant, library and reading room, entertainment lounge and beach terrace.

Each living unit has its own living room, dining area, kitchenette and in-suite bathrooms, one for every bedroom, cleverly designed and furnished for optimal use of space – 535 square feet per standard unit and 680 square feet per semi luxury unit.

“This is a ground-breaking concept for Sri Lanka, but one that has been quite successful in other parts of the world,” Ceylinco Life Managing Director/CEO Mr R. Renganathan told journalists hosted to a tour of the facility just days after it opened for public viewing. “La Serena caters to a segment that is looking for the perfect mix of privacy and companionship in an extremely convenient environment that facilitates an active and healthy retirement.”

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ceylinco Life, the managing company Serene Resorts Limited has the benefit of the strength and expertise of the country’s biggest and most successful life insurance company, and is intended to be the forerunner of further investments in retirement living, Mr Renganathan disclosed.

Every residential unit is fully furnished with living room, dining room and bedroom furniture, LED TV, refrigerator, induction cooker, microwave oven, electric kettle, telephone, ceiling fans and safe deposit box. All units have air-conditioning.

Available at a daily rental for short stays of two weeks to one month or at a monthly rental for stays of a year or more, each fully-furnished residential unit is supplied electricity and water under a utility fee and has its own telephone, cable TV, Internet and Wi-Fi, laundry services, newspapers and parking, and a daily janitorial service. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at the restaurant for those who do not wish to prepare their own, and a-la-carte orders may be placed via Room Service.

The facility will have a doctor on call, 24 –hour security and CCTV cameras, outsourced taxi services and access to a salon and spa nearby.

A guest house within the complex with four rooms available on a daily rental, is set aside for family members visiting La Serena’s residents from overseas or distant areas, facilitating interaction.

“We see this retirement resort catering to the needs of several customer segments,” Mr Renganathan said. “They could be newly retired or semi-retired men and women with a source of income such as investments, consultancies or freelance work, who like their independence, are reasonably active, and would like a hotel-like ambience because they do not want to be burdened with managing and maintaining their own homes and the attendant dealing with domestics, preparing meals and so on. La Serena could also be a solution for children seeking a secure, managed environment for parents, without the stigma associated with elders’ homes. Older people visiting family or friends in Sri Lanka will also find our short term rentals a great alternative to staying in a hotel.”

As Sri Lanka’s leading life insurer since 2004, Ceylinco Life has in-depth knowledge of the social needs generated by Sri Lanka’s rapidly ageing population, and has significant exposure in the health sector through Ceylinco Healthcare Services Limited (CHSL) which operates two state-of-the-art radiation treatment centres and the Ceylinco Diabetes Centre. The company has close to a million lives covered by active policies and is acknowledged as the benchmark for innovation in the local insurance industry for its work in product research and development, customer service, professional development and corporate social responsibility.

“Especially for you” my friends & fans everywhere, proudly presented by eLanka & “your’s truly”, a series of CDs featuring songs I have hand-picked from the hundreds I have sung, composed & recorded over all these years. Each “single” CD contains at least 20 songs. Additional ones are just a bonus.
     The songs, with the exception of my own original compositions, have been chosen by me to pay tribute to the various “greats” who have prerecorded them, & will be considered to be “covers”.
     There will be a “first come, first served”basis on this particular “series”as each one will be a strictly-limited edition, especially for those who wish to have this special CD in their collection. Again, through the kind auspices of eLanka, the “original” website for all Lankans & Lankan-Aussies, these CDs  will be featured on a special “eLanka You-Tube” channel.
My original compositions will also be featured as “itunes” for those who wish to purchase just the one “tune” that they prefer.

     All of the good people who read eLanka should know that I am a Roman Catholic. In name only,  unfortunately, but my taste in music is also Catholic.
Again, being a perfectionist of sorts, I have always done my very best to “entertain”  my audiences whenever & wherever. That was EVERYTHING to me.
Now, this is all I can do and my music is mainly to bring back “memories” for everyone who takes the time to relax, sit back & “think-back” because every living soul does have memories that are precious to them & GOOD MUSIC is the best way of achieving this.

       In closing, I would like to thank everyone connected with this particular “series” of my work. I am proud indeed, to be a Lankan-Aussie, proud & humbled at the same time, to be the “Star of eLanka” & the Editor of Lanka Times & proud to be referred to as “Mr.Music”
None of the “titles” were self-awarded. NONE of us can do what we do without God’s help. Without GOD, we are nothing. If you want a copy of any of these CDs folks, please call me on 03-8-759-1932 (or email me ) & let’s take it from there. All these songs are ESPECIALLY FOR YOU.

                                                                Desmond Kelly.
                                                               “Star of eLanka”

“Mr.Music” – Desmond Kelly’s latest musical endeavour is now available, especially for lovers of good “Country Music” that will bring back “memories that matter”, including original compositions, some of which will be heard & enjoyed for the first time.

The CDs, proudly presented by e’Lanka, Australia’s Premier Website for Lankan/Aussies everywhere will all be produced under the apt “title” Especially for You, starting with Volumes 1 & 2, each containing at least 20 great songs, vocal & instrumental,

from a huge repertoire, sung & played by Des., everywhere. With the exception of the Original Compositions, the “rest” are simply “Covers” and or “tributes” to various entertainers.

For more information on the above, which will also be featured on a special “e’Lanka You-Tube Channel”, comprising only “Des Kelly’s e’Lanka Recordings”, please contact Neil Jayasekera ( 0402 905275 ) or Desmond Kelly  :- E’mail : (or Tel.03-8-759-1932.
