It is the most comprehensive Food and Beverage Exhibition in Sri Lanka. I am overjoyed with Aradhana’s achievement and equally proud of all our award winners who have brought fame to the hotel.

Speaking out on her recent triumph Aradhana said, “I am grateful for the management of the hotel for giving me this opportunity to participate and showcase my talent. Special thanks go out to the General Manager, Sampath Siriwardena, Thushantha Kariyawasam Director F&B, Harsha Guruge, Manager F&B who was the person who encouraged me to take part, Sumedha Devappriya, Assistant Manager F&B and Sydney Rathnayake, Restaurant’s Manager Training.
