La Vie Hotels & Resorts, one of Asia Pacific’s leading and fastest growing independent hotel management companies, has signed a landmark deal with Radisson Hotel Group and Sino Lanka Group to operate three hotels in Sri Lanka. 

This major new agreement with Radisson Hotel Group, will see the company launch an upper-upscale Radisson Blu resort on the shores of the Indian Ocean near Galle, and two upscale Radisson hotels in Colombo – one in the heart of the country’s capital city and the other in Kandy, the cultural heart of the island. 

The three new properties will start to welcome guests following their rebrand to Radisson Blu and Radisson properties after a substantial refurbishment investment which will significantly uplift the properties to bring them in line with Radisson Hotel Group’s high standards. 
This latest announcement from La Vie Hotels & Resorts comes off the back of the group’s successful launch of Quality Resort & Spa Patong Beach on 27 March 2022, following a multi-million dollar refurbishment and franchise agreement with Choice Hotels. 

Jerry Xu, CEO of La Vie Hotels & Resorts, said “We have been wanting to grow our presence in Sri Lanka for some time now and we are thrilled to be partnering with Sino Lanka Group and to be completely revitalising these three outstanding properties and rebranding them to Radisson. Radisson and Radisson Blu brands are the perfect fit for these three hotels which are located in some of the best addresses in Sri Lanka, and we’re pleased to be embarking on this chapter with the team. 

“Our growth trajectory in South & South East Asia continues to be a major focus for our group as we work towards our vision of being the leading independent hotel management company across the region”. 

Bob Kundanmal, Founder of Sino Lanka Group, said, “We are proud to be working with the team at La Vie Hotels & Resorts to rebrand three of our premier Sri Lankan properties to the world-renowned Radisson brand and capitalise on the strength of Radisson’s distribution networks and the resumption of international travel. 

“We will be embarking on a significant refurbishment plan for each of the hotels to bring them in line with what guests have come to know, love and expect from Radisson hotels, and we can’t wait to welcome guests from 1 May 2022.” 

Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, said, “We are delighted to sign this landmark agreement for these three properties with La Vie Hotels & Resorts and owner, Sino Lanka Group, as we continue to increase our footprint in Sri Lanka, one of Asia’s most desirable destinations. With a trio of world-class hotels including a city
hotel in Colombo, a beautiful beachfront resort and an upcountry hotel in the cultural heartlands, Radisson Hotel Group will be established at the forefront of Sri Lanka’s tourism and hospitality industries.” 

On the new hotels, here is what guests can expect from May 2022. 
Radisson Blu Resort, Galle is a beautiful beachfront resort nestled directly on a long stretch of soft sand. Guests can unwind in paradise with a collection of 172 well-appointed rooms and suites, all of which command sea views, plus a large lagoon pool, kids’ club, fitness centre, spa and a collection of dining options, including a beachside restaurant and rooftop lounge. 

Perfectly suited to couples and families alike, the resort features a sandy beach where all ages can stroll and splash throughout the day. It will also become an exceptional venue for events, including weddings, with a choice of three meeting rooms, a grand ballroom and elegant alfresco spaces. 

Radisson Hotel Colombo, is a sleek and stylish city hotel just steps from the sea near Marine Drive, Colombo’s main coastal road. Visitors can stay in one of the 158 upscale rooms and suites, many of which overlook the ocean, take a dip in the rooftop infinity pool, workout at the gym, sip cool drinks at the rooftop bar, or enjoy local and international cuisine at the restaurant. 

Colombo’s main hotspots are all easily accessible. The golden sands of Wellawatte Beach are only 700 meters from the hotel, and the spectacular new Colombo International Financial City project can be seen a short distance along the coast. Bandaranaike International Airport is a 50-minute drive away. 

Radisson Hotel Kandy will mark this renowned international brand’s debut with its opening in May 2022 in this ancient Sri Lankan city. A collection of 122 contemporary rooms and suites showcase views of the city, gardens or mountains, the gym offers invigorating workouts, and the rooftop pool, restaurant and bar promise a soothing setting to relax during the day or after dark, with views of the lush landscape and Kandy Lake. 
With a prime position in this charming cultural destination, 10 minutes from Kandy’s city center, guests can explore everything this scenic region has to offer. Sri Dalada Maligawa, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed “Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic” is just 30 minutes’ drive away.
