It did reasonably well during covid bcoz the boss allowed it to be used as a paid hotel quarantine for repatriated Lankan’s. The boss minimized losses for his business with this ‘patriotic act’. 😄

Hopefully it would be a good investment for LOLC in long run.
It definitely wasn’t a good business for HHL to hold onto.

CORONA NEW VARIANT


TRUTH REVEALED BELOW:


It is normal for viruses to mutate all the time. Most of the new variants die out, but there are times when they spread without altering the virus's behaviour. Rarely, they trigger dramatic changes.


There is no evidence suggesting vaccines will be any less effective against the new variant, UK PM Boris Johnson said.


Meanwhile, Britain's Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said Covid-19 vaccines appeared to be adequate in generating an immune response to the variant of the coronavirus.


https://www.indiatoday.in/coronavirus-outbreak/story/can-vaccines-stop-coronavirus-new-strain-all-you-need-to-know-1751574-2020-12-21


There is nothing to be alarmed of, but as usual some elements are trying to cause panic.

The storm shall pass and we will bounce back stronger, says THASL President


This period has also been an ideal time for us to turn the searchlight inwards and to ask what  our industry can do to revive post Covid tourism. Tourism is a widespread industry. In Sri Lanka, We have reached every nook and corner of our paradise island. We bring people together across cultural, religious and national borders. We help people experience, appreciate and celebrate differences. Through tourism, we show that diversity is strength and not something to be feared. People all over the world travel to Sri Lanka because they value and celebrate our diverse offerings not just our historic and natural diversity but the diversity and vibrancy of our people.
 
Tourism can therefore easily be a catalyst for both economic and national solidarity. As I speak, there are new hotel investments happening in the country. 


They are creating job opportunities for our youth, women and other marginalised people and giving hope to many more. In our industry, we believe-in and strive for equal opportunity for all. We are Sri Lanka and we celebrate Sri Lanka in all her glory.


We believe that our strength is in our people and their resilience and that our smiles will turn the darkest of days to the brightest of moments. That is why I am confident that we will succeed and come out of this crisis stronger than ever. 


My friends, this storm shall pass and out of it, will come a stronger, more confident industry and nation.

Absurd assumption. 

Who is going to come and sit in a hotel for 14 days quarantine? The cost can be upwards of USD 1400 for the 14 day stay.

High end tourists /British citizens who will feel safe from corona virus & cold weather. In other words life saving holiday!

As the Covid casualties are much less here compared to UK and also a preferred destination for holiday makers. ("Lonely Planet" voted SL as the top travel destination 2019., owing to Covid outbreak LP has not ranked tour destinations for 2020 & 2021).

"12,700 tourists arrived last month compared to 5,040 arrivals in August, according to the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau. The visitors were from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and Pakistan."


Waiver of second PCR test brings quick profit at Arrivals gate

By Chrishanthi Christopher
View(s): 1004

The tourism industry has welcomed the Health Ministry’s decision to revoke the requirement of a PCR test at the airport, saying the decision would boost tourist numbers.

Under new guidelines, people who have negative results from a PCR test carried out 72 hours prior to arriving at the Colombo airport will not have to undergo a further PCR test when they land.

This means all passengers who have received two jabs for COVID-19 and have a negative PCR test prior to arriving in the country will be able to walk in free.

Sri Lanka Inbound Tourists Operators (SLAITO) said already the number of tourists visiting the country had increased.

Some 12,700 tourists arrived last month compared to 5,040 arrivals in August, according to the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau. The visitors were from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and Pakistan.

From January to August, just 24,377 visitors arrived in the country, most members of the diaspora visiting family, SLAITO past president Mahen Kariyawasam said.

He said arrival numbers improved considerably since the requirement for 14 days’ quarantine was reduced to one day with a mandatory PCR test showing a negative result. Tourists have to remain within a hotel only for a day until their results came in.

The requirement for $US50,000 medical insurance covering COVID-19 treatment and hospital care remains.

“We already are getting positive vibes and there have been number of enquiries from potential visitors,”
Mr. Kariyawasam said.

Nevertheless, he said, more was required: the practice of issuing visas on arrival had to be reintroduced so that visitors were not forced to pay and obtain visas online. They also had to obtain prior hotel bookings and travel insurance cover, and this sometimes took up to three days to achieve.

“We had the best system in the world in issuing visas on arrival. We are talking to the authorities to reintroduce this facility and give visitors opportunity to buy insurance at airports,” he said.



The Hotels Association is anxiously waiting for new business following massive losses during lockdown periods when no tourists came to Sri Lanka.

President Sanath Ukwatte expressed optimism that the tourism would speedily pick up. “People love to travel,” he said.

During the lockdown, many hotels joined hands with the health sector to provide intermediary care to mild and first contact patients but this business has decreased due to the number of persons requiring quarantine reducing drastically.

The government has embarked on a tourism promotion spree, targeting niche markets such as the “digital nomads” who look for countries that offer long visitor stays. Sri Lanka has been recognised as a top destination for this growing segment in which people seeking to escape a busy city life look for extended visits to picturesque locations where they can enjoy a “technology-driven lifestyle”, tourism promotion bureau Director General Dhammika Wijesinghe said.

There is interest from European countries such as Germany, France and The Netherlands as well as the United Kingdom and India, he said. Sri Lanka currently grants stays up to one year for the visitor category “digital nomads”.

The tourism bureau has also held webinars with the tourism sector in countries such as India and Vietnam to encourage tourists to visit Sri Lanka.
