Akshy is the key role and the concept creator of Srilanka Voyages, and is the main person in charge of overall sales and operations of this company. He is seen as one of the most knowledgeable and dynamic young tourism professionals in the country, who is always reading and traveling around to discover interesting places to offer new experiences to his clients. Having done his Master Degree in Tourism and International Business, he is one of the very few professionals in Sri Lanka with an authentic international tertiary qualification in destination management itself. Having spent close to seven years studying and working overseas, Akshy came back to Sri Lanka and was immediately offered a position at Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau, which is responsible for all marketing and promotional functions of Sri Lanka Tourism.

At some stage in this time he did the NTGL course offered by the Sri Lanka Tourism Authority and obtained the National Tourist Guide Lecturer License for graduates, passing out with the highest score in his batch. He then took up a position as a Senior Sales Consultant at KUONI – an up market Switzerland based Tourism Company, where he worked for over three years. Driven through his interest in the culture, history and the heritage of Sri Lanka, Akshy intended to create his own concept of Srilankan Tourism. Srilanka Voyages is his own creation and a different outlook to customized tours in Sri Lanka.

Nadee Lanka is Aksy’s beautiful wife. She is a young teacher into teaching at Royal Collage Colombo. Nadee did her first degree in Travel & Tourism at University of Sabaragamuwa in 2002. She is one of the key roles in the team and always stands behind Akshy on all the duties & responsibilities.

Anil was the first member to join the SV team from Colombo. He joined the team as an operations executive in October 2009. Being a senior cadet and a tough member of the school cadet platoon, he has always wanted to join the security forces. However, he is now very happy that he ended up in a tourism company and not in a military camp.

Thilini is Anil’s loving better-half. Her knowledge, capabilities and experience in different fields has made her an asset to the company, where she now overlooks accounts and administration work while performing her duties as the main person handling nature tours. Thilini’s willingness to gain more knowledge in different subject matters gave her the confidence to complete her Post Graduate Diploma in Heritage Management at the Post Graduate Institute of Archeology and Research of the University of Kelaniya. More than all, her charisma and cheerfulness has made her the live wire and the good luck charm of the entire team.


Madu & Kanchana. It is only fair to say that Tourism is in Madu’s blood. He has been involved in tourism activities since childhood, as his father has been running a small but famous restaurant and a guest house in the well–known city of Negombo for the last 10 years. Madu studied at Kelaniya University and flew to Canada for his higher studies. Madu studied and worked in Canada for 6 years before returning to Sri Lanka and got actively involved in the tourism industry thereafter.

She is the Responsible Tourism profile in our team and she create all possible options for your holidays combining with possible local hotels, resorts, home stays, villas and guesthouses which stand for responsible travel.  Kanchana has been travelling around Sri Lanka from the time she was young and her thirst for travel has never ended. Her greatest joy each day is having the opportunity of sharing her country with people from abroad and ensuring they leave with an experience beyond all expectations. Kanchana’s association with travel and tourism goes back to 1998 when she first joined the team and since then she has been happy designing the most memorable and insightful holiday programs for travelers coming to Sri Lanka. Kanchana is also passionate about sustainable tourism and the environment.

Ishanka, Destiny has directed her towards getting her very first job in a tourism company, which was totally unplanned. However, she loves her job and the tourism trade and has already decided that her future goal would be to become a top tourism professional in the country. Ruwini loves the part of her job where she gets to travel around the country, explore new places and hotel properties. She also likes reading booked and articles on various different subject areas during her free time. She will mostly be responding to the travel-concierge hot-line.
