Amaranthé Bay won its award in the “Service” category. A huge heartfelt thank you to all of our amazing staff who’s extraordinary service this award celebrates, and of course our guests who’ve all been a part of our first and wildly successful year!
Amaranthé Bay, located in a picturesque cove abutting the sandy beaches of Trincomalee, is a relative newcomer in the hotel business, having been in operation for only 18 months. Thus, to be chosen as one of the 25 hotels in Sri Lanka that received so many travelers’ accolades as to merit an award, is indeed an impressive accomplishment. Guests pampered at Amaranthé Bay, leave the hotel glowing with delight, and write rave reviews on the experiences that pleased them most. Some write about the opulence and cleanliness of large/junior suites, others of the quiet, restful sleep in ultra-plush beds with soft sheets and firm pillows, or memorable moments of luxury in Jacuzzis tucked in the corner of rooms that offer a panoramic view of the river, the serenity and quiet of quaint surroundings etc. Above all, Amaranthé Bay is now identified as a hotel where the staff takes ownership in delighting the guests without needing to be supervised, and where romance fills the air offering an unforgettable honeymooners’ paradise.
Chairman of Amaranthé Bay, Mr. Loyola Fernando, has every reason to be elated as guest satisfaction is almost a religion to him. He consistently encourages his staff to mingle with hotel guests so they would be better able to attend to their needs. “Sri Lankans are well known as friendly people who always greet with a smile. When our guests go through some effort to visit the east coast, it is our responsibility to make their visit so memorable they would want to return”.
