Colombo Continental to be re-branded Amaya City
Colombo Continental is to be re-branded as Amaya City from mid 2012
and would be incorporated to the Amaya Group of Hotels. The property
would also be converted to a fully pledged five star hotel.
The hotel is currently undergoing a massive refurbishment drive with
some wings of the property closed.
Hayleys PLC and its group of companies acquired Amaya Leisure PLC on
September 1, 2011, marking a significant milestone in the development of
the conglomerate’s leisure and aviation business sector. Amaya Resorts
and Spas consist of three properties, namely Amaya Lake in Dambulla,
Amaya Hills in Kandy and Langdale by Amaya in Nuwara Eliya.
It was built by construction magnate, U. N. Gunasekera and was the
first five star hotel to be built in Sri Lanka.
