Inspired by the Sanskrit word LAYA, which evocatively suggests REPOSE, that aura of tranquility is what the World of LAYA offers as it welcomes all travelers to its chain of hotels. Founded by the Sri Lanka Army to initially cater to the welfare of its war heroes, with the introduction of the LAYA concept, its Welfare Directorate thought it fit and proper to throw open its doors to local and international visitors at large. The LAYA group comprises LAYA Safari in Yala, LAYA Beach in Wadduwa, LAYA Leisure in Kukuleganga, and LAYA Waves in Kalkudah – all oases of absolute serenity.
