Centara reaches into Sri Lanka with two new resorts
Feizal Samath, Colombo, June 13, 2012

THAI-BASED Centara Hotels and Resorts will open two four-star properties in Sri Lanka this winter.


The 126-room Centara Passikudah Resort & Spa will be located in Passekudah, east of Sri Lanka, while the 166-room Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa will open in Bentota, the oldest resort hub in the country, said Centara officials based in Bangkok.


The Thai chain joins a plethora of hotel brands that are emerging in Sri Lanka during the post-war period, including Raffles, Sheraton, Marriott, Shangri-La, Six Senses and Movenpick. India’s ITC Hotels is also establishing a Luxury Collection property under Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide.
