Tilko Jaffna City Hotel is the first luxury hotel in the heart of Jaffna Town, and it opened the doors to cater for the demanding tourists from 2010 onwards. The hotel is consisting of 38 Guest Rooms and 2 pent house apartments to accommodate group tourists. The hotel is offering facilities such as restaurant, gymnasium, saloon, spa and conference hall. Tilko Jaffna City Hotel is established in a 340 perch land with an overview of the Jaffna lagoon and the beach. The Tilko Managing Director Thilagaraj stated to me that the area lacked hotels offering proper facilities to the demanding tourist in an international standard and he also described the hotel as a Luxury Hotel targeting business community, tourists and expatriates.
