Sri Lanka’s Galle Face Hotel Group partners with Louis T Collection

A new hotel initiative that aims to stir up a new round of international enthusiasm for Sri Lanka is taking shape on one of Asia’s fastest-growing island destinations.


The Galle Face Hotel Group and the Louis T Collection will come together in a strategic partnership that will link two complementary organizations — the Galle Face Hotel Group (GFHG), a Sri Lanka-based company led by a prominent voice in Sri Lankan tourism, Sanjeev Gardiner, and the Louis T Collection, a hospitality management and building solutions company. “Now’s the time,” said GFHG Chairman Sanjeev Gardiner. “The island is flourishing and tourism is booming.”

 In recent years Gardiner was recognized as “Tourism Entrepreneur of the Year” at the Sri Lanka Tourism awards. The young leader, who is carrying on in his late father’s footsteps, took over the chairman’s position when he was just 25 years old and has played an integral role in fostering the island’s domestic and international tourism scene.
