The fifth edition of Boutiques in Sri Lanka, Luxury Accommodation Guide 2018 was launched at the Access South Tower last week, with an atmosphere of great excitement and celebration.

Boutiques in Sri Lanka, a handbook on luxury bungalows and villa accommodation in Sri Lanka, is now considered as a trusted source. This year’s guide brings a whole new range of the best retreats and villas of the island.

“Everything we do is by the service of the brand, created through the power of the image of each property that ultimately attracts the discerning traveller to a luxury resort. The authenticity brought out through design, colours, settings, intelligent service and cuisine, and ultimately how we market it, is what ensures the property remains relevant for longer and is more successful,” explained Boutiques in Sri Lanka Editor Druvi Gunasekara.

The Luxury Accommodation Guide 2018 contains information on over 500 of the best boutiques and villas from around the island. Properties are either personally visited by BISL staff or the assistance of luxury boutique business providers are sought in order to grade the resorts. The property listings are graded as A Luxury (Elegance and luxury), B Luxury (Style and Comfort), C Luxury (Charm and Character) and Semi Luxury.

“Sri Lanka is a riot of colour and a cacophony of sound on every corner – a veritable photographer’s dream to compose through the viewfinder,” stated Osborne Creative Luxury Content Studio Owner and Boutiques in Sri Lanka Photographer Lee Osborne.

“Tourism is booming, its wanderlust-ful locations grace the pages of virtually every magazine or newspaper you pick up these days. For an island similarly sized to Ireland, it offers incredible diversity for the international visitor,” added Osborne. 

The guide also contains an haute couture list on boutiques, travel trips, brief introductions on the main tourist areas, and a tourist map of the island.
