Director, CEO

Travel Design by CDC was conceived as a means to further facilitate your travel and holiday plans in Sri Lanka. Having been with Connaissance De Ceylan for many years, it is indeed a pleasure to be a part of this new initiative. As the CEO for Travel Design I will be overlooking the smooth running of the new division and assist the brand to reach the markets smoothly and as well as strategically.

I am and have always been a passionate traveler. And this has been my motivation to help the like-minded. I strive to provide a service of excellence; the same excellence that I would expect from a DMC as a traveler. I pay attention to every minute detail in an itinerary and ensure every tour curated by us is savored as a memory. Marco Polo once described Sri Lanka as “undoubtedly the finest island of its size in all the world” and I believe that as an advocate of travel, it is my duty to help the world experience the beauty of my country.

Assistant Manager

The thing I love about working with the team Travel Design is that here, we make things happen! All the members of our team are passionate about what we do and we enjoy curating experiences for travelers who visit Sri Lanka. I work with the Italian clientele and my proficiency in the language helps me better understand my clients and provide my best service. My satisfaction is knowing that at the end of the day my clients have experienced a unique and comfortable stay in this beautiful island that has much in offer for everyone.

Junior Executive

Being part of a dedicated team is my greatest motivation to work with Travel Design. As the name itself implies, my work scope literally involves ‘designing’. For me, each vacation we craft from the scratch is a piece of art. I enjoy painting little elements of the final master piece, adding colours to the most unusual areas, and fine-tuning the whole design. Real joy comes when we receive the guest compliments; to be the reason behind their smile of satisfaction and to know that they lived a wholesome experience outside home. Those for me, are the real fruits of our labour!
