Nawatan.com, the leading online accommodation platform in Sri Lanka, has announced the release of the much awaited ‘Deals’ feature, ahead of the peak holiday travel season.
Deals, a technology feature which was not previously available for small and medium accommodation providers will help providers quickly fill their room inventory through attractive deals and discounts. The Deals feature is the latest of a series of technology solutions planned by Nawatan.com team to empower small and medium scale accommodation providers in Sri Lanka.
“Nawatan.com is all about providing a common technology platform for the small and medium scale accommodation industry in Sri Lanka to connect with the local and foreign tourists on the web,” said president and CTO, Punsri Abeywickrema.

Local and foreign travellers are able to find clean and comfortable places to stay anywhere in Sri Lanka through Nawatan.com website. Nawatan.com is the only travel booking website in Sri Lanka that has a large pre-screened inventory of clean and comfortable rooms. Every property that is a part of the ‘Nawatan Certified’ accommodation network is checked by Nawatan.com staff for a set of standards.
“We are the only travel booking website that has a local staff on the ground in Sri Lanka. Being local, which is the biggest advantage Nawatan.com has over the other travel websites like AirBnB.com, Wimdu.com, Booking.com, and Agoda.com, Nawatan.com is able to provide a superior service to its local and foreign travellers,” said Ranasinghe.
