Hilton Colombo has won Sri Lanka’s Leading Business Hotel award for the second consecutive year at the World Travel Awards 2018 held in Hong Kong.  

Described as the Oscars of the Travel and Tourism industry by the Wall Street Journal, it is one of the most sought after events on the tourism calendar. 

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Today, the World Travel Awards brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.  Commenting on the hotel’s great achievement, General Manager Manesh Fernando said: “We are honoured to have been chosen as Sri Lanka’s Leading Business Hotel once again, at one of the most prestigious events in the world. We take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our guests who have been supporting the Hilton Colombo over the past 31 years.” 

Hilton Colombo won this award in 2009 and 2017 and also Sri Lanka’s Leading Hotel award consecutively from 2005-2008 and again in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
