Chaminda Priyankara, the owner of the Imperial Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel, is a man who has dedicated his life to the hospitality industry. Born and raised in Sri Lanka, Chaminda grew up with a passion for travel and a deep love for his country’s culture and natural beauty.
His career in hospitality began in 1985, when he started working at a small hotel in his hometown. From the very beginning, Chaminda knew that he had found his calling. He loved meeting new people, learning about their stories and sharing his own, and creating a warm and welcoming environment for his guests.
Over the years, Chaminda worked his way up in the industry, gaining experience and knowledge that would one day help him in his own business. But his journey was not without its challenges.
In 2004, the devastating tsunami hit the southern coast of Sri Lanka and destroyed everything in its path, including the hotel where Chaminda was working at the time. It was a crushing blow, but it also.
Today, the Imperial Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel is a testament to Chaminda’s hard work and dedication. Although the hotel may not have all the luxuries of larger establishments, it makes up for it with its warm hospitality and personalized service. Chaminda and his team are committed to ensuring that each and every guest has a comfortable and memorable stay.
As he looks back on his journey, Chaminda knows that he has found his true calling in life. He takes pride in his work, knowing that he is helping to showcase the beauty and warmth of his beloved Sri Lanka to the world. And he looks forward to welcoming guests from all over the globe, sharing his story, and making new memories that will last a lifetime.
