Nazoomi, Grange Hotels & Charity

With his passion and sheer determination, Nazoomi began working his way up throughout Grange Hotels in 2013, working in almost every department within the chain. Thanks to his vast experience working in a variety of roles throughout the years, Nazoomi was promoted to General Manager of Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in 2014. A perfect candidate; he has a strong understanding of what it takes to succeed and develop in different areas of the hotels. Because of this, Nazoomi has what it takes to lead and inspire teams, day in, day out.


As well as working as General Manager for Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, Nazoomi is something of a philanthropist. As a representative of the Indian Ocean Disaster Relief, Nazoomi has worked to support children and families in Sri Lanka affected by the 2004 Tsunami as well as the Sri Lankan Civil War. With his giving nature, Nazoomi wants to instil the same morals in his two children. He has been known to request parents of his sons’ friends to donate presents to charity rather than give his children presents they do not need.  

Furthermore, Nazoomi is also the SOS Kit Aid Ambassador to Sri Lanka rugby, of which he organises and manages the distribution of sports goods to less privileged schools and children in rural areas who love the sport.
