Best Western Elyon Colombo is pleased to announce the appointment of seasoned Sri Lankan hotelier, Renuke Coswatte as the General Manager of its 59-room Hotel in Colombo.
Best Western Elyon Colombo became the first-ever Best Western hotel in Sri Lanka when it opened in 2014. The hotel has 59 tastefully designed contemporary rooms, a range of modern facilities, including a stunning rooftop bar.
Despite being in operation for less than a year, the hotel has already received accolades and awards from Trip Advisor and Booking.com.
Commenting on his new role, Coswatte noted, “I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Sri Lanka to oversee Elyon Colombo as part of ‘The world’s largest hotel chain’. I look forward to working with a strong team to deliver world-renowned intuitive and personalized Best Western service to local and international guests.” 
Best Western International is the most unique brand in the industry with each hotel reflecting the charm and culture of the area in which it is located. “Best Western Hotels around the globe are renowned for their service, facilities and hospitality by people who care. The offerings at Elyon Colombo will be no exception,” said Coswatte. “I hope to increase our brand image and presence in Sri Lanka, developing our F&B aspects providing an ideal choice for travellers visiting Colombo as well as creating a social hub for local clientele.”
With nearly two decades of solid industry experience spanning Sri Lanka, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, Coswatte joins the hotel from the Sur Plaza Hotel, in the Sultanate of Oman where he was General Manager. Through intensive operational as well as sales and marketing efforts, Coswatte successfully drove the Hotel to become a full-fledged hotel destination backed by a well-trained local workforce. 
Prior to that, through his roles as Hotel Manager, Jetwing St. Andrew’s, Nuwara Eliya and Assistant Manager, Jetwing Beach, Negombo, Front Office Manager, Carlton Crest Hotel, Melbourne, Australia and Assistant Sales Manager, Ceylon Inter-Continental Hotel, he acquired in-depth operations knowledge and expertise.  Commenting on this new appointment, Elyon Hotels Chairman Presantha Jayamaha said, “We warmly welcome Renuke on board and have every confidence that with his wealth of international experience and operational capabilities he will deliver all-round results and successfully position Best Western Elyon Colombo among the leading choices for accommodation within bustling Colombo.” “We are confident Renuke’s breadth of tourism and hospitality experience will be invaluable in his new role and he will drive and guide the hotel to new heights,” Jayamaha noted.
