Luxury Hotels in Sri Lanka

Colombo, as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, has more luxury star class hotels than any other town or city in the country. Luxury star class refers to their grading as three, four or five -star properties. The more stars, the brighter the hotels shine, with spectacular views, superb service, opulent accommodation and several dining options. For example, the city’s top two Cinnamon hotel properties feature more than a score of Colombo’s finest restaurants.

Staying in a luxury star class hotel in Colombo becomes worthwhile because of the convenience of the location, the attention to detail, and the satisfaction of being able to enjoy top class accommodation at much less than in luxury star class hotels in other countries. Sri Lanka also has luxury star class hotels in popular beach resorts and other tourist destinations. Every one of them is distinguished by an understanding of what guests want while staying on holiday or business.
