Club Med to open resort in Sri Lanka

Club Med is set to open an over 300 room resort in neighbouring Sri Lanka in 2018.

According to several travel news websites, Club Mediterranee, France last week signed an agreement with Sri Lanka's LOLC Group to open the first Club Med branded property in Sri Lanka in 2018.

A leading diversified conglomerate in Sri Lanka with resorts in the country and the Maldives, the LOLC Group will brand, market and manage the existing Riverina Resort in Beruwela in southern Sri Lanka.

The resort will undergo a re-construction to offer 363 rooms.

Club Med joins a growing roster of international resort brands to foray into Sri Lanka which now include Hotel Riu Sri Lanka and Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa.
