Colombo (News 1st); Fox Kandy by Fox Resorts won the Silver Award for ‘South Asia’s Best New Hotel/Resort’ for 2020 at the South Asia Travel Awards (SATA) held as a virtual event this year.
Additionally, Fox Jaffna by Fox Resorts was nominated for the award for ‘Leading Heritage Hotel’ for 2020.
The SATA Awards is the first-ever regional travel award endorsed by multinational associations providing the tourism sector of the South Asian Region with recognition towards their facilities and service excellence.
The South Asian Travel Awards aim to encourage and raise service standards within the regions of the tourism industry. Submissions for awards were received from hoteliers, travel agents, tour operators and service providers from the tourism industry of India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Nepal and Bhutan.
Over 450 international hospitality brands operating in Maldives, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal and Bhutan competed for awards in 42 categories.
Fox Resorts, the boutique hospitality arm of The Capital Maharaja Organization, opened Fox Jaffna in June 2018.
The property, being over a hundred years old, has witnessed an abundance of history, including occupation by insurgents during the Sri Lankan Civil War. The hotel boasts 28 luxury rooms, sprawling lawns, Jaffna’s best-swimming pool, and two underground wartime bunkers that have been masterfully converted into an art gallery and history museum, paying tribute to the country’s and region’s history, heritage, art and craft. It is certainly a unique and serene abode in the bustling city of Jaffna.
Fox Kandy was opened in November 2019, and is located atop a cliff overlooking the stunning mountains of Hantana.
The hotel features sprawling manicured lawns and offers 25 rooms, one suite, a gourmet cuisine restaurant, and a stunningly placed infinity swimming pool.
The misty mornings experienced at Fox Kandy amidst the stunning panoramic mountain vistas will no doubt stay etched in your memories forever.
With a promise to explore the island’s best-kept secrets, Fox Resorts specializes in crafting unique experiences with memorable meals and heartfelt service in each of its properties that lead to unforgettable celebrations on every stay.
“We are thrilled to see a Silver Award won by Fox Kandy at the SATA Awards, and also a nomination for an award for Fox Jaffna. This is a most valued acknowledgement during a very dark time for us due to the COVID-19 situation. We are honoured to have been considered in these categories among internationally renowned big brands” says Chris Quyn, CEO, Fox Resorts.
