Mövenpick Hotel Colombo crowned Sri Lanka’s leading hotel at the World Travel Awards 2017

Colombo’s first international five-star hotel to launch in 25 years receives top honour at prestigious awards ceremony.

Colombo, Sri Lanka, 12 July, 2017: Mövenpick Hotel Colombo has been named ‘Sri Lanka’s Leading Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards 2017, marking a major milestone for Colombo’s newest five-star property.

The top honour was capped with the hotel also scooping the ‘Best Presidential Suite’ title at the recent awards ceremony.

The accolades were received by the hotel’s General Manager, Markus Marti, who said he was both “honoured and humbled” by the recognition the property had received just months after its January 2017 launch.

“To be crowned as Sri Lanka’s leading hotel at this early stage is testament to the dedication and passion of our team,” he said. “We will build on this success, continuing to deliver a personalised customer experience that sets us apart in this region.”

The World Travel Awards acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry. They are widely regarded as the sector’s most prestigious recognition programme.

Mövenpick Hotel Colombo, the first international five-star hotel to open in the Sri Lankan capital in 25 years, is a strikingly-modern 24-storey property that has introduced a touch of attitude and altitude to the city.

With 219 rooms and suites boasting city or ocean views, a stunning Rooftop Bar & Lounge and fun and theatrical dining options, this new urban hotel offers unparalleled charm and modern hospitality concepts that are new to Sri Lanka.

The hotel’s Presidential Suite is also one of a kind. Ideal for four adults, the 254sqm palatial space has two elegant bedrooms — one King and one Twin — a comfortable living room, large bathroom with Jacuzzi and a fully-equipped pantry.

Mövenpick Hotel Colombo is well located in the affluent commercial area of the city known as Colombo 3. It’s adjacent to the popular retail precinct, the Arcade – Liberty Plaza, and close to several historical sites too.
