5-star hotels cheapest in Sri Lanka: Kayak
Singapore, July 2, 2015
 

TRAVELLERS searching for the most value-for-money stay in a five-star hotel need look no further than Sri Lanka, according to Kayak's recent analysis based on searches for five-star hotels in countries across Asia.

 

Sri Lanka offers the cheapest five-star luxury hotels with average rates starting from just S$241 (US$178.80) per night. For instance, Earl’s Regency, a hilltop retreat located in the town of Kandy boasts average prices that start at just S$208.

 

India and Malaysia follow closely behind with average rates at S$243 and S$244 respectively. Hong Kong has the most expensive five-star hotels with average rates at S$461.

 

Debby Soo, Kayak’s vice president APAC, believes that travelling on a budget does not mean completely ignoring luxurious hotels.

 

“To find a less expensive, but still amazing, five-star resort, look for destinations that are outside mega-popular tourist areas. Hotels in less-frequented destinations like Kuala Lumpur and Kochi provide the same amount of luxury for less,” said Soo in a press release announcing the findings.

 

Kayak’s full list of countries and their corresponding average nightly rate is as seen below:

 

Sri Lanka – S$241

India – S$243

Malaysia – S$244

China – S$266

Thailand – S$300

Philippines – S$311

Vietnam – S$319

Macau – S$321

Taiwan – S$341

South Korea – S$349

Cambodia ­– S$373

Singapore – S$420

Indonesia – S$435

Hong Kong – S$461

 

Kayak launched its Singapore website and mobile app in April.
