Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts Offers 1000 Holiday Packages to Healthcare Workers

Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts, a hotel chain at the forefront of Sri Lanka’s hospitality sector, comprising 15 hotels and resorts across Sri Lanka and the Maldives, is offering 1,000 complimentary full board holiday packages, for two nights at nine of its properties in Sri Lanka as a way of thanking our frontline healthcare workers who have worked tirelessly to contain the Covid-19 pandemic in Sri Lanka. The packages are to be distributed based on the nominations received from the Ministry of Health and will be valid for the period beginning 1 July to 30 September 2020.

Nominees will be able to select from nine hotels in Sri Lanka which includes Cinnamon Grand Colombo, Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo, Cinnamon Red Colombo, Cinnamon Bey Beruwala, Cinnamon Wild Yala, Cinnamon Lodge Habarana, Cinnamon Citadel Kandy, Habarana Village by Cinnamon and Trinco Blu by Cinnamon.

Sri Lanka’s response to the pandemic has been nothing short of impressive with the government implementing timely measures, and our healthcare system providing superior care to our own citizens as well as others. A silver lining if any during a very bleak time in history.

“As a responsible corporate citizen John Keells Holdings has pledged to care for the nation’s people and communities through the practice of our core values: caring, trust and integrity. Offering complimentary holiday packages is a form of giving back and showing appreciation for all the hard work done to keep us safe,” comments Krishan Balendra, Chairman, John Keells Holdings PLC.

Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is looking forward to hosting the brave men and women at its properties to thank them for their hard work, dedication and selflessness.
