COLOMBO, Sri Lanka – Proving once again that their brand of traditional Sri Lankan hospitality is their greatest strength, Jetwing Hotels has been awarded 10 new Certificates of Excellence from the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor. Having received 8 last year, the following Jetwing hotels were certified recently – Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions, Jetwing Beach, Jetwing Blue, Jetwing Lagoon, Jetwing Sea, Haridra Resort & Spa by Jetwing, Era Beach by Jetwing, Jetwing Lighthouse, Jetwing Warwick Gardens, and Jetwing Vil Uyana.
An accomplishment in its own right, the total of 10 Certificates of Excellence marks Jetwing Hotels as one of the most acclaimed resort chains in Sri Lanka. The criteria for the certificates are simple, yet complex, as they require a consistent high ranking in quality reviews as well as user rating. The vision set forth 40 years ago has undeniably grown, with this family-owned company embarking on a remarkable expansion drive to double room inventory within the next 3 years.
“A post on TripAdvisor is highly respected in the travel community, which makes the 10 Certificates of Excellence that much sweeter,” said Hiran Cooray, Chairman of Jetwing. “With the growth of the Internet and its ability to connect anyone anywhere, reviews are important as they allow us to see a visitor’s perspective and adapt accordingly. With 10 of our 16 properties having Certificates of Excellence, I look forward to achieving the same status for all our hotels.”
