The ‘Grand Marena‐ Chen­nai’ and ‘ The Hideaway‐

Yer­caud’ will be op­er­a­tional by 2012-13 and take the tally of the Sri Lankan Ho­tel Man­age­ment Com­pany to six.

We are work­ing on sev­eral pro­mo­tional schemes with many play­ers and this has pro­vided good re­sults. said Lak­sh­man Ekanayake, Di­rec­tor and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Aitken Spence Ho­tel Man­age­ments, South In­dia.

“Presently, we man­age Ho­tel Atithi Puducherry, The Poovar Is­land Re­sortThiru­vanan­tha­pu­ram, Bare­foot at Have­lock An­daman Is­lands and Ta­mara – Coim­bat­ore. Lately, we have signed agree­ments to man­age two more prop­er­ties, The Grand Marena – Chen­nai and The Hideaway – Yer­caud, which will come on stream in 2012 and 2013. It is our vi­sion to have around 10 ho­tels in near the fu­ture un­der our port­fo­lio and es­tab­lish a firm foot­print in In­dia,” he added.
