Registration of tourist hotels mandatory – Minister
Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Prasanna Ranatunga has ordered that the registration of all tourist hotels in the country be made compulsory with the intention of improving the quality of tourist hotels.
Accordingly, the Minister has instructed the Sri Lanka Tourist Development Authority (SLTDA) to take immediate action in this regard within the next three months.
Ranatunga has further noted that although there are 20,000 hotels across the country at present, only 2,000 hotels are registered.
SLTDA has already appointed a special team to carry out the registration process.
