One Transworks Square plans to bring two luxury brands – The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott – to Colombo. The Ritz-Carlton, Colombo and JW Marriott Colombo are expected to set a new standard for luxury in Sri Lanka’s bustling commercial capital.
Jaideep Wahi, CMO, The One Transworks Square said, “We are delighted to enter the Sri Lankan market with this iconic project, which also marks the beginning of our relationship with Marriott International. Both properties are designed to be a captivating haven that complement our efforts to create the city’s most exciting and luxurious lifestyle destination. Introducing Ritz-Carlton as well as JW Marriott to Sri Lanka is sure to spark phenomenal interest locally and internationally.”
“The One” luxury project will be composed of three gleaming glass towers set on four million square feet of prime property at Transworks Square, Colombo 1.
The complex will include offices and residences, high-end retail, a banquet hall, collective fine dining experiences and a helipad. Set to soar 300m high, The Ritz-Carlton, Colombo and JW Marriott Colombo will be built in adjacent towers, with the third tower slated to be South Asia’s tallest building at 376m high and 92 floors. A beautifully restored heritage structure is also a part of this project, connecting visitors to “The One” to Sri Lanka’s history.
The Ritz-Carlton, Colombo with 200 guestrooms and 187 branded residences, feature the brand’s legendary service, exemplary amenities and elegant design. JW Marriott Colombo features 250 contemporary hotel rooms, 218 residences on high floors, three culinary outlets, a lobby lounge, and a banquet space.
“The Ritz-Carlton, Colombo and JW Marriott Colombo will mark Marriott International’s entry into Sri Lanka’s luxury market, a milestone achievement as we continue to increase our presence in this dynamic, rapidly growing country,” said Paul Foskey, Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International.
