JA focuses on Sri Lanka

JA Resorts & Hotels expands its hospitality offerings in the Indian Ocean with its latest development plans for a $30 million premium tropical beach resort in Kathiraveli on the East Coast of Sri Lanka in partnership with the Gravity Resort Group (GRG).

The five-star beach property, which will be known as JA Eclipse Beach Resort, with 108 luxurious suites and villas, marks JA Resorts & Hotels’ third premium tropical beach resort in the Indian Ocean.

Stephen Banks, JA Hotels & Resorts’ newly appointed group commercial director, comes with a wealth of expertise in the Middle East and North Africa.

“The project is advancing on schedule and is set to open in Q4 2017. We have taken care to incorporate the area’s natural beauty in to our overall aesthetic and the resort allows our guests to enjoy some of the popular beach and sporting activities amidst a culturally rich landscape. We will be sharing the much-anticipated conceptual designs at WTM this year. Our expansion in the Indian Ocean is just a stepping stone in our commitment to spreading our heartfelt hospitality and expanding our international footprint.”
