The world’s largest travel planning and booking site TripAdvisor recognised Aitken Spence Hotels as winners of its Travellers’ Choice Awards 2019.
Heritance Kandalama, Heritance Ahungalla, Heritance Negombo, Heritance Tea Factory and Amethyst Resort were among the hotels that secured the accolade, based on consistent positive reviews collected over the past year. These Heritance properties were also merited among the highest in the ‘Top 25 Hotels – Sri Lanka’ based on their exemplary service, quality and value.
Heritance, a name that has over the years been synonymous with superior hospitality in Sri Lanka, caters to discerning travellers who are explorers of culture and authenticity. Heritance Kandalama, the leading eco-resort is among the most awarded properties in the country with emphasis on architecture and eco-ethos. Heritance Ahungalla, the first five-star resort in the southern coastal belt is a haven of peace and solitude by the beach. A converted 19th century tea factory that today sings songs of the past through its unique design, Heritance Tea Factory has been a constant favourite among local and international travellers.
As a local hospitality chain that aspires to introduce the inherent warmth of Sri Lankan hospitality to the world, Aitken Spence Hotels pays heavy emphasis on refining service efforts whilst maintaining and improving the product. As such, the award is seen as a further endorsement of the chain’s continuous efforts to develop its core products.
Held for the 17th year, the award honours hotels across categories including luxury, bargain, small, best service, B&B and inn, romance, family, and all-inclusive, as well as top hotels overall. “Travellers can consider these award-winners when picking the perfect hotel for their needs – for any budget or trip type – to help inspire their travels in 2019,” says TripAdvisor Global Communications Vice President Desiree Fish, in a statement with a congratulatory message to the hotels.
