Mandarina Colombo, the 80-room business hotel owned and managed by Macksons Properties Ltd., won the real estate industry’s highest honour when it clinched the Best Hotel Development Award 2018. The annual Asia Property Awards was held for the first time in Sri Lanka recently at a spectacular event to recognise and reward the country’s best real estate companies and projects.   

For Mandarina Colombo which opened barely 18 months ago in 2017, the award is a coveted benchmark of excellence rewarding only the best developers and developments in Asian real estate at a domestic and regional level. 

Mandarina Colombo is strategically located in Kollupitiya along Galle Road and has 11 floors with rooms that include comforts and features ranging from High Speed Wi-Fi to 24-hour medical assistance on request. The newest additions to its list of services are banqueting and meeting room facilities. A distinctive feature of the hotel is the glass fronted infinity swimming pool on the rooftop, offering a view of both the city’s rising skyline and the sweeping Indian Ocean. 

Macksons Properties Director/CEO Ranga Goonawardena said, “The Asia Awards has a fine reputation for being credible and our project team is privileged to be recognised and rewarded along with Sri Lanka’s finest real estate companies and development projects. The prestigious award also shows that Mandarina Colombo delivers an outstanding experience to guests through exemplary service standards.”

Macksons Holdings Managing Director Mizver Makeen commented, “As a diversified conglomerate involved in manufacturing, retailing and property development, we are pleased to be recognised and receive this honour which is greatly coveted in the industry. Our brands such as Multilac surface paints and Macktiles are renowned not only in Sri Lanka but also internationally. This award is an exciting achievement for Macksons as we diversified into the hospitality industry very recently.”
