President to open The Steuart by Citrus

The Steuart by Citrus, the latest addition to Colombo city’s tourism offering will be declared open on June 26, by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Located at the very heart of Colombo, The Steuart will operate as a boutique business hotel offering the convenience of its prime location coupled with true Sri Lankan hospitality and traditional Scottish charm.

The property adds 50 rooms to Sri Lanka’s graded inventory and is a reflection of the company’s commitment to the country’s tourism vision. The Steuart is built on the premises of Steuart House, the former headquarters of Sri Lanka’s oldest mercantile establishment, the George Steuart Group.

The origins of the George Steuart Group go back to 1835 and Steuart House traces its history back several decades when it was among the first high rise buildings in the heart of the capital.

The Steuart thus draws design inspiration from the Scottish ancestry of James and George Steuart, the founders of the conglomerate; the interiors will stay true to Scottish design elements across its livery, furnishing and finishes.

The board of directors of Citrus Leisure PLC stated, “We are excited about our entry into the Metro Hotel segment, which enables us to transfer our resort management expertise to managing a boutique business hotel.”
