Sri Lanka increases hotel capacity

Hotel expansions in Sri Lanka have boosted the destination’s room capacity by 45%. John Keells Holdings, Amaya Resorts & Spas and Jetwing are all putting millions into developing their hotels on the island following a demand for hotel rooms. “Given the rapid growth of tourism in Sri Lanka, Jetwing seeks to refurbish its current properties and expand its room stock through new ventures,” said Jetwing Chairman Hiran Cooray. “In respect of refurbishment, Jetwing has made a conscious effort to upgrade all of its properties gradually to 4-5 star (small luxury) properties.” Sri Lanka has seen a 48.4% in inbound tourism for the first half of 2010.
