TripAdvisor has announced the world’s best hotels for the year 2013 and has placed LOLC Leisure’s Eden Resort & Spa as one of the top hotels in Sri Lanka. This is the first time that Eden has been given this prestigious status by the world’s largest travel site.

On an official posting on its website, Travellers’ Choice 2013 has provided a comprehensive list of top 25 world winners as well as winners from each travel destination around the world. This elite listing is ranked by millions of travellers worldwide. Sri Lanka’s own top 25 includes some of the heavy weight brands of the Sri Lankan travel and leisure industry, and provides a glimpse at comments shared by travellers. Guests of luxury 5-star Eden Resort & Spa have posted many upstanding reviews about the hotel’s services, location, staff and cuisine among many others. According to the feedback posted on the site, a traveller from Australia has ranked the hotel’s hospitality service as “above par-excellence,” while another has reviewed the service of the staff as “helpful and attentive” and “very high standard”.

A guest from the United Kingdom has praised the delectable cuisine prepared by Eden’s chefs as “absolutely superb, especially on Christmas Eve and Day. The choice was enormous, every seafood imaginable.”

Commenting on Eden’s top ranking at Travellers’ Choice, General Manager Eksath Wijerathne said: “This is yet another first for Eden and a moment of great honour for us. I and my wonderful staff at Eden would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all our patrons for their reviews and feedback and to TripAdvisor for providing the opportunity for travellers and leisure establishments to come together on a common forum. In future, I hope to see many more Sri Lankan hotels make it to the top of the list.”

With over 17 years of rich history behind its brand, Eden Resort & Spa was the first 5-star hotel in Sri Lanka to offer spa facilities. Growing from strength to strength since then, Eden today is a favourite leisure destination and a well-known hospitality brand among travellers visiting the golden mile of Southern Sri Lanka. An ISO 9001:2008 and HACCP certified hotel, Eden has won many notable local and international accolades, including 2012 Certificate for Excellence from TripAdvisor.
