The Colonial Villas in Sri Lanka Team
Director of Villa Experiences
Mark’s family have been hoteliers, managers and restaurateurs for 3 generations. His training in food and beverage was enhanced by working in the reservations and administration of prestigious Sri Lankan hotels and villas. Responsibility for financial reporting under close supervision taught Mark the importance of transparency and honesty. It was his bridge into improving financial returns.
With managerial responsibility increasing over time, he saw first hand the impact of ‘super-service’, the reward for going the extra mile to ensure guest experiences resulted in repeat bookings, positive reviews and ongoing education through personal engagement with travellers.
With an excellent written and spoken knowledge of English and Sinhala, Villa Owners find communication effortless. Managing local staff requires understanding and experience along with language fluency.
Easy to read spreadsheets and reports bind day to day operations to monthly outcomes.
