Re-imagine Jaffna hospitality with ‘Thinnai’

‘THE THINNAI’ is a brand-new initiative up North that blends luxury with authenticity. An all-suite Boutique Hotel located in Thirunelveli, Jaffna opened for the public on August 2, 2016. Thinnai, without a doubt, ups the standard of the Northern hotel industry creating, true to its own words, ‘the perfect ambience to Rest, Relax and Reunite’. It indeed comes as a pleasant surprise that this property, developed and managed by Thinnaveli Property Developers is only its first such venture in this industry.

It is evident that this local endeavour is firm in its resolve to serve the Northern environment, economy and community. The hotel strives to be as environment-friendly as possible and has partnered with the ‘I love green’ project to do its share in curbing the drinking water crisis that plagues several parts of the peninsula. All fresh food including milk, fruits and vegetables used in the kitchen are obtained from its own Organic farms located in close proximity to the hotel; ensuring high quality while encouraging the struggling local market. Likewise, majority of the staff at Thinnai are residents of Jaffna newly trained and introduced into the hotel industry.

Thinnai encompasses 39 suits with 58 rooms in total, generously appointed single (700 Sq feet) and double (1100 Sq Feet) bedrooms fully equipped with all necessary facilities. ‘Mangalam’, its banquet hall seats up to 250 guests and is suitable for large gatherings of any occasion. New to Jaffna, this hotel also has an outdoor freshwater swimming pool and separate jacuzzies in some of its suites.

Thinnai offers a wide range of sports and entertainment including bicycle riding, live music and special activities for both adults and children. The hotel also organizes excursions around Jaffna for tourists on abode and avows to make available all modes of transport including airplane, train, bus and private vehicles to suit ones choice and comfort through its concierge service.

Other facilities provided by the hotel include, laundry service, drivers quarters, travel desk, taxi service, free Wi-Fi access, business centre, conference room, fitness centre with gym instructor, yoga, kids play area, salon and gift shop.
