The Kingsbury Colombo will be ready to welcome guests from today, the hotel said in a statement released yesterday. Following is the full text of the statement:

“Recent events have been deeply disturbing, however our passion to serve our valued guests remains resilient in the face of these challenging times. The Kingsbury empathises with all innocent victims of this senseless destruction and our hearts go out to the grieving families of all those affected. “During the aftermath of the tragic events our team has been focused on taking care of guests and team members around the clock using all available resources and in the midst of much adversity. We have done our maximum to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the remaining guests and employees. 

“In spite of adversity and great odds, we feel it our duty by our staff and our patrons to restore normalcy. We are ready to welcome visitors to The Kingsbury from 25 April. Hotel accommodation, banquets and restaurants (Yue Chuan, CÉ LA VI, Kings Bar) will be functional to serve our clientele and we are equipped to serve you with even more passion and determination, epitomising the true Kingsbury spirit.

“Under the circumstances, we wish to reassure our guests that security has been strengthened in coordination with State authorities. This includes enhanced security at the premises and the periphery of the hotel.”
