Club Med has unveiled plans to open its first resort in Sri Lanka in August next year.

The all-inclusive Club Med Ceylon will be located in Sri Lanka’s South West Province in the small town of Beruwela, a 90-minute drive from Colombo International Airport.

“We are very excited to venture into a new market with such potential – Sri Lanka is a beautiful and mystical country with rich history and culture,” said Club Med President Henri Giscard d’Estaing. “I am delighted to welcome Club Med Ceylon into the Club Med family. Together with our partner LOLC, we are very excited at the prospect of our resort in Sri Lanka growing into the region’s premium holiday destination in time to come.”

The 327-room resort will feature a variety of restaurants, numerous bars serving a free flow of drinks and alcoholic beverages, a children’s club, and MICE facilities.

For recreation, Club Med Ceylon will offer guests a plethora of sea and land activities including the Club Med signature Flying Trapeze as well as tennis, football, archery and many more.

Lanka Orix Leasing Company (LOLC) Deputy Chairman Ishara Nanayakkara said, “This historic venture, the meeting of minds of two colossuses, will be a mutually rewarding partnership that will add immense value to Sri Lanka tourism. As a destination, Sri Lanka has a rich and diverse culture offering spanning nature, culture, religion, adventure and eco-tourism, and we are confident that it will ascend in popularity and profitability to become one of Club Med’s premier properties.”
