5 Reasons to Host Your Business Meeting at AQUA Forte

Mar 30, 2021
Corporate

With many of us continuing the ‘Work from Home’ rule during the pandemic, business meetings have radically shifted from boardrooms and corporate meeting spaces to living or dining rooms, via popular platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Hangouts.

While virtual meetings have become the norm now, sometimes that may feel too impersonal. Whether you’ve just managed to close a big deal with a client, or found an investor for your business, human interaction (not through a screen) might actually be beneficial in crucial decision-making.

If you’re looking for one of the best restaurants for your business lunch or dinner, head down to AQUA Forte, an Italian restaurant in Galle Fort Sri Lanka and enjoy the serenity of a quiet restaurant while exploring the world of Italian cuisine.

 

The Setting

/

The ambience is key and atmosphere of the restaurant plays a vital role in your meeting. When choosing a venue for a meeting, pick a place with the perfect balance of informal and formal. While a business meeting room may be too rigid, you should not on the other hand pick a restaurant that is too crowded and too loud. Avoid buffet-style settings and instead look for a curated menu that offers light, fresh meals. A professional ambience and beautiful décor can go a long way, not only enhancing your dining experience but also impressing the other party.

Nestled on a charming, quiet street inside the Galle Dutch Fort, AQUA Forte is a good place for business meetings. You can be assured that your meeting won’t be interrupted by loud noises or large crowds as our intimate setting is perfect for a power lunch. With refined and elegant dining spaces and a delectable authentic Italian menu, your meeting is sure to be a success!

    Privacy & Hygiene

    Adjusting to life in a pandemic is crucial. Paying close attention to a restaurant’s hygiene and safety protocols will put you and your party at ease. When planning your corporate meal, look out for how often tables and other surfaces are sanitised, health and temperature checks, etc. Generally, try to stay away from airconditioned venues, and opt instead for dining outdoors or where there’s a free flow of fresh air.

    At AQUA Forte, the health and safety of our guests and staff are at the forefront which is why we follow stringent measures to minimise risk while still having an enjoyable experience. Within the Galle Fort, our restaurant is one of the key places to have business meetings. All our tables are placed in a socially distanced manner, ensuring both safety and privacy. Be sure to reserve your table in advance, so we can place you in a comfortable and private area, secluded from other diners.

    Finally, to truly impress your guest, leave the busy streets of Colombo and head south towards the charming old town of Galle. Our restaurant is situated within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle Dutch Fort and is a good place for informal or formal meetings. The fort itself is enthralling, centuries-old cobblestone alleyways and large airy Dutch villas are a hallmark of Galle Fort, and as you wander through this ancient fort you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to a rural Italian village! Rich in history and culture, the fort is impressive on its own but pair it with a meal at AQUA Forte and you’re sure to win over any potential investor or recruit!

    Walk around the fort if you have a few extra minutes after your meal, here are some things you can do within the heritage site.
