Niluka Gebalanage

niluka-jun17Her bubbly, friendly personality makes Niluka a great addition to the Reservations team.  Being a people's person, she loves to talk and meet new people, so it was just a natural progression to venture into the Hospitality industry. She says; “It gives me joy – helping out guests and meeting their expectations, with some challenges along the way. I love what I do”.

Niluka has now worked in Hospitality for 3+ years, but originally grew up in Sri Lanka. Her family used to own a restaurant back in Sri Lanka. So she grew up with a great work ethic and a smile on her face, no matter what.  After completing school, Niluka shifted to New Zealand and studied Hospitality Management, and on her final year of work experience at Jet Park – they offered her a job. She started in Reception, then shifted to Reservations, and loves this role.

“Jet Park Hotel is a family orientated Hotel. One thing I love is how we treat our guests – we often go out of our way to make sure that guest expectations are met and they are happy. That’s why we have many regular guests. We have a close relationship with our guests and are always there to share in their joy and sadness at times.”

Outside of work, Niluka loves to play hockey, in her words: “Whack balls and thrash people!” and she says there’s no better place to relax other than “your mama’s kitchen”.
