News in and around the Raja Beach Hotel and Sri Lanka

28. November 2018

Our new Cabana has opened!

Finally we could open our new Cabana. It is available for guests of the Raja Beach Hotel as well as for guests of the Cocobello Restaurant. The idea was to build a cosy place to eat and drink in the original Sri Lanka look. Finding someone who could still build a reed grass roof was a challenge. But it worked well, didn't it? We are looking forward to your visit.

If you intent to come to Sri Lanka, we advise to reed at your very first the FAQs and other relevant documents at the official website of the S.L.T.D.A. Tourism Authority, which are really helpful and answers a lot of questions. The procedures has to be followed, and important, also there should be enough time to be calculated for them. Here are the links:

UPDATE 19.03.21

Visits during the quarantine are possible, under the supervision of the authorities.
After that, if I understand correctly, you will be released into the wild (no guarantee).
A mobile app is planned for tourists to help them cope with the Covid19 regulations. To be launched at the end of January.

Change in Booking Policy

In order to facilitate booking during Corona with constant changes in laws, regulations and closures, we had implemented the possibility of cancellation at short notice as well as waiving prepayment. However, this is now being massively abused by some Sri Lankans who show a hotel booking to the airline to board instead of permission from the authority. So we had to change our booking policy again, as our rooms are constantly blocked. In justified cases, which we examine individually, we will nevertheless allow a refund. It's a pity that honest bookers are now being disadvantaged because of such slithering ears.
Bookings with an invalid e-mail address or without a reply within a reasonable period of time will be classified by us as a fake booking and deleted immediately.

No more quarantine after entry

This was announced by the Ministry of Health.
(To be read below in the Corona news).
Thus, the remaining Level 1 hotels will be transferred to the status of "Other certified hotels" (until another decision by the Ministry).

A great add-on for our cute little Bungalow:

A new private terrace at the back of the Bungalow, with direct access from it, for a cosy get-together or an undisturbed chill-out.
The terrace is to be equipped with beautiful garden furniture, but it will take some time due to the current situation in Sri Lanka.
Until then we are still renting without price change.
Book now at the old price, even if the terrace should be equipped by the time of your stay😀🥰!

A little normality again in the economic crisis:

There are no more queues at the fuel stations, even if the petrol is rationalized. Tourists are allowed to fill up the tank.
Cooking gas is now available again.
Medical care seems to be restored.
Spare parts are still hard to come by.
The population is suffering from the high prices. For tourists, it is a minor problem due to the high exchange rate.
