First and only Sri Lankan property in Asia to win Award for Best Luxury Value
Award recognises world class excellence in hospitality offerings
The all-suite luxury boutique resort Aditya, which has reiterated an impressive presence in the country’s luxury boutique resort hospitality space since 2005, added to its global laurels with a prestigious 2019 Condé Nast Johansens Award for Excellence in Best Luxury Value this year. This award makes Aditya the only property in Asia and the first in Sri Lanka to be crowned in this category of Best Luxury Value, by this renowned international organisation which has a global collection of luxury hotels, spas and venues approved by international hospitality experts. This latest global award adds to an impressive collective of accolades won this year including an unprecedented four TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, placing Aditya among the Top Ten Luxury Hotels in Sri Lanka, the Top 25 Small Hotels in Sri Lanka and among the Top 25 Hotels in Sri Lanka for Service as well as Romance.
Sitting on the golden beaches of Rathgama in down south Galle, Aditya has now etched itself into the honour roll of wearing the title of one of the most unique properties in the world. The 16 suite resort replete with its newest addition this year of two luxury villas, magnificently impressive at 7,500 square feet each, articulates freedom and relaxation in its open spaces, unending seascapes and tropical vistas. Contemporary interiors marrying vignettes of historical architecture and cultural hallmarks set against polished cement floors and essays in tropical design hues, with rooms appointed with every conceivable luxurious details including private pools and even outdoor rain showers makes for a haven in R&R, a dynamic that continues to be echoed with each award presented.
But world class excellence is not just about a fabulous property – it’s about the overall experience and that Aditya has perfected without a doubt. An extensive a la carte menu is truly a seduction of the tastebuds with service levels commended by even the most critical hospitality connoisseur. “Winning this Award for Excellence which is aimed at creating knowledge, rewarding and celebrating excellence via Conde Nast recommended luxury hotels, spas, boutiques and resorts places Aditya in an exalted category in the whole of Asia, says Managing Director of Hermitage Resort (Pvt) Limited Husain Dawoodbhoy. “For us, this is truly praise that we have worked hard to gain, ensuring that the luxury value we espouse is one of absolute indulgence combined with our signature attention to detail which brings in ultimate value. That value is brought in by our amazing team who passionately believe in the simple principle of hospitality – to anticipate and exceed our guests’ expectations at all times every time.”
