May 29, Colombo: Best Western International has reached another landmark in its international expansion, with the launch of the company's first ever hotel in Sri Lanka.

The brand new Best Western Elyon Hotel Colombo opens its doors 1st July 2014, marking the US hotel group's debut in Sri Lanka boosting the hotel chain's Asian portfolio to 23 countries.

Located on Marine Drive, the hotel offers 60 contemporary guest rooms, all of which come equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs, iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Best Western Elyon Hotel Colombo is also expected to become a new star on this fast-growing city's F&B scene. The hotel's rooftop bar and terrace offers a unique proposition for Colombo, with guests able to enjoy cool cocktails and tasty tapas overlooking the city.

The hotel also offers an all-day dining restaurant serving up an la carte menu of local and international dishes.

For corporate travelers, Best Western Elyon Hotel Colombo provides a boardroom capable of hosting up to 30 people, plus a business center. And after a hard day's work, guests can wind down with a workout in the hotel's well-equipped fitness center.

"With fast-paced GDP growth and a burgeoning tourism industry, there is no doubt that Sri Lanka is one of Asia's new 'tiger economies'," said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International's Vice President of International Operations for Asia & Middle East.

"With economic growth similar to that of China and international visitor arrivals rising in double-digits, this wonderful country holds tremendous opportunities for both business and leisure travelers," he said.

"I am delighted to be able to introduce Best Western's world-famous values of comfort, connectivity and excellent service to travelers in this dynamic destination," Mr. de Souza added.

Best Western Elyon Hotel Colombo joins a collection of more than 200 Best Western hotels either operating or in the pipeline across Asia and the Middle East.
