If a hotel or resort claims to be luxury, then there are certain requirements they must meet before one can actually agree that they are, indeed, luxurious.
The word has frankly bee overused in the current markets. From soaps to footwear and cars, the term “luxury” is used often, and loosely too. The actual definition of luxury is a state of elegance or great comfort, especially expensive comforts.
What makes a hotel luxury?
There are many luxury hotels in Sri Lanka the likes of Blue Water Club Suites and more, that actually live up to the term. But, what makes them different from the other hotels that claim the same? First of all, booking a room at a luxury hotel should be a flawless, smooth process that can be done within minutes.
Check in & Checkout
There shouldn’t be queues at the reception; check-in and checkout must be fast, simple, and inconspicuous.
The room you looked at on the website and booked should be the room you actually get. Anything less than what you expected or paid for is a huge no for a luxury hotel. Also, a luxury hotel bathroom must be a spa in itself. With elaborately decorated tubs, spick and span countertops, and unlimited water access, the place should be a joy to look at.
