* Jetwing hotels in Sri Lanka awarded top star certificates
Sat, Feb 2, 2013, 12:45 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority has awarded two of the country's prominent resorts, Jetwing Blue and Jetwing Sea a five-star and four-star certificate, respectively.

The Jetwing hotels said in a statement that as Sri Lanka is becoming a popular tourist destination in the world, the need for high-quality and world-class accommodation is important and certifications awarded to such establishments provide direction and guidance to travelers when planning their holiday/visit.

"Today's traveler is not the traveler we as an industry were used to. Before visiting a country, many research extensively, thanks to resources such as TripAdvisor. When a potential visitor sees the star-class status bestowed on a hotel, immediately they know what to expect, what facilities are available, and find it very easy to make a decision," said Hiran Cooray, Chairman of Jetwing.

Jetwing Blue, opened in 1973 and formerly known as the Blue Oceanic Beach Hotel, went through a major restoration and reopened in 2011 with 112 rooms, and a 600 pax seating capacity ballroom.

Jetwing Sea, opened in 1971 as Seashells Hotel, was renovated and re-opened in 2011 with 83-rooms. The hotel is complete with a rooftop gym and spa along with a specialty fine dining fresh seafood restaurant.

Both hotels, located in Negombo, are close to the international airport in Katunayake and offer a convenient place to rest after a long flight.
