CNN Travel is spotlighting the über-luxurious Amangalla hotel within the historic confines of Galle Fort, one of the eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sri Lanka.
When the cast of UK TV megahit ‘Made In Chelsea’ was whisked off to Sri Lanka for some much-needed R&R, where better than the Shangri-La Hambantota, one of our most über-deluxe beachside resort hotels!
As this writer for the upmarket Forbes business and lifestyle magazine says, “even the most luxurious airport hotel is often hardly worth a mention. The Wallawwa in Sri Lanka is the exception”.
Sri Lanka’s Hambantota airport debacle—aka the Mattala Rajapaksa International fiasco—is providing a bargain silver lining for the world’s golf lovers.
When the US business magazine Forbes writes a 3,000-word story about a Sri Lankan hotel chain, it’s more than just a gratuitous pat on the back. Such is the case with Resplendent Ceylon’s three family-owned properties—Ceylon Tea Trails, Cape Weligama and Wild Coast Tented Lodge.
Budget travellers to Sri Lanka now have a charming new place to stay in the centre of the capital Colombo—Tuk Tuk Hostels (TTH), which “embraces the youth hostel concept to its fullest”. Writes the DailyFT: “TTH caters to the expectations of young travellers and all those who value sharing, spontaneity and experience.”
