Our History

EDLEE TOURS & TRAVELS is a family-based travel agency where my father, Thilak Ranasinghe, my mother, Malani Jayaratne, and I, Asantha Ranasinghe, are directors. We have registered with the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority as a travel agency and are operating our business according to government rules and regulations. Our history goes all the way back to the mid-1970s. My mother joined a hotel in Negombo.

At the time, it was a single-star hotel, and later became a three-star hotel, and today it’s a five-star. Earlier it was called Browns Beach Hotel, and today it is Heritance Negombo by Aitkens Spence. My mother influenced my father to start a new career as a tourist chauffeur, and my mother invested money to buy their first car. My father was a Sri Lanka Air Force officer before becoming a tourist chauffeur.

I was born in 1981 and both my father and mother worked in the same industry at that time, tourism and hospitality. My birthplace was in the heart of Negombo tourism, which we called "Beach Road" or "Hotel Area". Negombo has been a main destination and one of the main tourist attractions for more than 60 years now. It’s because there is a sandy beach nearby with plenty of sea foods to taste, with some leading hotels, and at the same time, Negombo is very close to Colombo International Airport as it will take only 20min to reach. After finishing school, I did my first tour under the guidance of my father at the age of

nineteen. It was the year 2000, almost 21 years ago. After years of experience, I joined a few companies as CEO, General Manager, and Executive Director. I learned a lot from them. From a very humble beginning as a tourist, driving to manage a travel agency is an amazing journey. Today it’s all about EDLEE TOURS & TRAVELS. With an experience of more than 45 years, our family business is growing each and every day. My parents taught me the real value of hospitality and how important it is to make each customer happy. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family.

What makes us Unique?

We always want to provide a unique and unmatched experience for our clients. Some examples include

• We will stop at a vegetable selling point and ask our clients to select one or two vegetables they like. (The same can be found in their country as well). Then we will ask the accommodation provider to prepare it in Sri Lankan style. We do have our friendly places to do this. It is not with the star-class hotels or boutiques. And in the last few days of the tour, we will arrange a place to cook these same vegetables again. Before departure, we will give you the recipe and all the relevant Sri Lankan ingredients, except the vegetables. It is kind of a gift for them.

• We always create beautiful memories during the time they travel around Sri Lanka. Because we believe memories are the only thing that will keep your mind.

• We transformed our clients into friends. At the end, they will be our friends, and that’s our main goal.
