Six Senses Sri Lanka Deal Dies

Category: Hotels, Posted:08 Feb 2013 | 06:00 am

The joint venture deal between Thailand's boutique resort chain Soneva and Aitkin Spence in Sri Lanka is dead in the water.

Now TTG Asia has reported that the deal is dead and that Aitkin Spence are now speaking to other international groups.
