Rise in Sri Lanka holiday bookings: UK travel operator

Key2holidays, a specialist online travel operator, has seen a dramatic increase in Sri Lanka holiday bookings, and attributes this to the recently achieved peaceful political climate, making the region safe to travel to. With holiday bookings increasing by 420 percent, Sri Lanka has now made it into Key2holidays’ top 3 destinations, out of the 30+ countries to which Key2holidays offers value-for-money tailor-made travel arrangements.

Speaking about the spike, Gemma Kidby, Key2holidays’ dedicated Indian Ocean product manager, commented, “Now is the time for a luxury Sri Lanka holiday: the island offers world-class beaches, inspiring cultural tours and 5 star accommodation at 3 star prices. The military offensive that deterred the cautious away from Sri Lanka holidays is coming to an end, and confidence is restored.”

In response to the rising Sri Lanka tourism industry, a brand new 5 star boutique hotel has opened on the beach of Wadduwa, catering to the growing market for Sri Lankaluxury holidays. It is not surprising that the hotel has chosen this west coast location, as this unspoiled area is peaceful and ‘safe’ and is just 1.5 hours away from the airport.
