With the reawakening of the leisure sector in Sri Lanka, Tisara Hotels, a leading hotel company in Sri Lanka, managing properties in Koggala has invested Rs. 700 million to open The Coastal Village Cabanas in Koggala. The Coastal Village Cabanas is offering a totally new concept in the local leisure sector by offering hotel rooms on a long term basis to foreigners and also locals. “Tisara Hotels which also own and operate Koggala Beach Hotel, Long Beach Hotels, Beach Cabana and Club Koggala Village saw the vacuum to offer high-quality accommodations at very competitive rates for long stay clients and launched The Coastal Village Cabanas with 30 rooms with mini garden areas,” said Resident Manager, The Coastal Village Cabanas Lakmal Abeykoon. The management acquired a colonial bungalow and converted it to a luxury property to launch this operation. “The management will further invest to add 30 more rooms by the end of the year.” In addition a 150 guest capacity banquet hall too would be introduced towards August this year.
He said that The Coastal Village Cabanas is a project carefully planned, designed and executed by their Managing Director Mohan saparamadu. The Coastal Village Cabanas has accommodations with two outdoor swimming pools, free private parking, a garden and a terrace. Featuring a restaurant, this 3-star hotel has air-conditioned rooms with a private bathroom. The property provides a shared kitchen, room service and currency exchange for guests. In a bid to be energy conscious the hotel also installed solar energy as well. Abeykoon who has been working overseas in Singapore Marriott and several local properties said that they also allow guests to cook their own food and two separate common kitchens with all cooking utensils are created for this. “We have a good response from Europeans and especially Russians for our hotel as our rates are very attractive.” He added.
