Sri Lanka’s leading luxury boutique hotel, W15 Hanthana Estate, was recently welcomed into the Condé Nast Johansens family, and then yesterday was awarded ‘Best New or Newly Renovated Hotel’.
Condé Nast Johansens comprises a global collection of independent luxury hotels and this highly prestigious award nomination once again emphasises W15 Hanthana’s commitment to excellence in Sri Lanka’s tourism sector.
Despite being a new addition to the nation’s ever-increasing boutique hotel collection, W15 Hanthana is the only hotel nominated in this category from Sri Lanka and has beaten the odds to become the winner against a property in the Maldives. The category covered all hotels in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Oceania and the Indian Ocean.
“We are thrilled that our commitment to style and quality has been recognised by this leading brand, and our customers – for whom we exist. This has encouraged the team to keep innovating and striving for excellence,” stated W15 Sri Lanka Managing Director Isabel Jamaldeen.
This type of international recognition by Condé Nast Johansens is also a nod towards Sri Lankan tourism, despite current challenges in global travel.
W15 Hanthana continues to support and actively promote Sri Lanka on the global tourism map, highlighting W15 Sri Lanka’s long-term commitment and belief in the nation’s tourist sector.
Condé Nast Johansens handpick their enviable list of hotels through local experts in the field of travel and their recommendations come with the promise of an ‘exceptional experience’.
Recognised internationally as a trusted travel reference firm, Condé Nast Johansens boast 38 years of experience in inspecting hotels and adding to their collection of recommended luxury properties. Their world-renowned Awards for Excellence are a trusted mark of quality recognised by consumers and travel professionals alike.
