Commenting on this joint venture and historic partnership, Sanjeev Gardiner, Chairman -– Galle Face Hotel Group/Luxe Asia noted, “with the Khiri Group’s presence and excellent customer service and our unparalleled knowledge of the Sri Lankan inbound tourism market, I am convinced that Khiri Travel Sri Lanka will become the market leader in the luxury tourism segment in a relatively short period of time. The refurbishment of our Ceylon Hotels Corporation properties and the Galle Face Hotel in particular will complement the needs of Khiri Travel Sri Lanka.”

Luxe Asia, a regional destination management company will be complemented by the global standing of the Khiri Group in the travel industry.
