Hotels get their stars: Jetwing Blue gets 5
December 31, 2012, 6:57 pm
The Island

A number of star class hotels have come up to provide better facilities for the rising number of tourists arriving in Sri Lanka, giving a further boost to Sri Lanka’s rapidly developing tourism industry. In 2012 alone one million tourists arrived in the country.

Sri Lanka expects to increase this number to two million by 2016 making the island one of the most popular tourist destinations since the end of nearly three decades of anti-terrorist war, a statement issued by the Economic Development Ministry said.

Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa predicted an increase in the demand for Sri Lanka’s tourist hotels by giving them star class certification to provide both foreign and local tourists with a quality service.

He said this at a ceremony held in Colombo in connection with the issuance of the certificates to tourist hotels by the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority.

At the event, a five star certificate was issued to the Jetwing Blue Hotel, Negombo, four star certificates to Jaya Wild Yala, Jaya Trans Hikkaduwa and Jetwing Sea Negombo and a three star certificate to Sanmira Renaissance, Unawatuna.

There is a great demand worldwide for environment-friendly hotels and such facilities in Sri Lanka would attract an increasing number of tourists to this country, according to the minister Basil Rajapaksa.

The annual foreign exchange earnings through the five-year tourism development plan under Minister Basil Rajapaksa’s guidance will be nearly three billion dollars by 2016. It would create 500,000 job opportunities associated with the industry, which will result in the construction of 50,000 hotel rooms.

Already a number of tourism-related programmes have been launched covering the island’s beaches, wild life, heritage, ayurveda, sports, natural beauty, marriage ceremonies and other local traditions and also eight specially identified areas, the ministry said.
