Significant new developments

Notable openings to look forward to in July include Cinnamon Life Colombo in Sri Lanka and Hilton Woking – Victoria Square in the United Kingdom.

The 800-key Cinnamon Life Colombo is a part of the significant Waterfront development, which is the first project of its kind in the Sri Lankan capital. The hotel joins the development’s residences, retail options and office space.

The complex has been developed on an area around the city’s natural harbour, overlooking a bend in the docklands’ waterway. The site consists of a collection of architecturally striking towers with a series of cantilevered and supported boxes sitting above a plinth.

The five-star Hilton Woking – Victoria Square is then located within Woking’s new Victoria Square retail and residential development, which plays a significant role in the town centre’s regeneration.

The hotel is close to Woking train station, with Central London less than 30 minutes away and direct links to locations across the South and West such as Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol and Bournemouth.

Facilities within the new property are to include an all-day dining restaurant, Sky Bar, lobby bar and coffee shop, as well as an executive lounge, business centre and more than 700 sq m of meeting space including a ballroom for up to 500 people.
