Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority registered hotels and restaurants recommence operations
Hotels and restaurants registered under the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) reopened for business last week after being closed for nearly two months.
The decision to recommence operations of these facilities was made by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) and Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the National Operation Centre for the Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) last week.
Some of the leading hotels and restaurants immediately posted the reopening of its services on their official social media pages and also announced the services that are available and the safety procedures that have been put in place.
The President’s Media Division (PMD) stated that the reopening of all hotels and restaurants registered under the SLTDA for in-house-dining was the first phase of resuming the tourism industry in the country.
The recommencing of operations at SLTDA approved hotels and restaurants is indicative of the restart of operations in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. Given the health guidelines in place at hotels and restaurants, there’s a requirement for the latest technology to continue with business operations. These requirements would see an increase when the country opens the industry to foreigners in the next few months. Also, the reactivation of Sri Lanka’s tourism industry would once again expand the business/investment opportunities in the country’s tourism industry.
