CHC launches Polonnaruwa Resort Collection

Ceylon Hotels Corporation (CHC) launched its Polonnaruwa Resort Collection which comprises Lake House and Lake Hotel recently.

The old Polonnaruwa Rest House was chosen by the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip in 1954 as their holiday destination.

Re-branded as The Lake House, this deluxe boutique hotel is surrounded by many historical sites from the second great Sinhala kingdom, Polonnaruwa and overlooks the magnificent Sea of Parakrama. The Lake House is managed by Ceylon Hotels Corporation and was recently restored to portray the inherent characteristics of the Resort Collection, a tribute to all things traditional with a modern feel to it.

The Lake House, Polonnaruwa, is a boutique hotel that accommodates 14 superior and deluxe rooms and the landmark being the Queen's Suite.

The Queen's Suite has been named in honour of Queen Elizabeth's visit in 1954. The restaurant which cantilevers over the lake has retained the famous 'rice and curry luncheon' featuring fish from the lake and fresh water lobsters that have become the signature delicacies at the Polonnaruwa Resort Collection. Special evening menus, bicycle tours, elephant safaris and historic site tours are also conducted.

In close proximity lies the second hotel that forms the Polonnaruwa Resort Collection, the Lake Hotel, overlooking the sea of Parakrama and is built on three acres of landscaped garden.

The 40 air-conditioned deluxe rooms with all modern amenities have been completed and the extensive renovation respects the unique location and historical significance.
