Courtyard by Marriott Colombo partners with Magzter to become Sri Lanka’s first Smart Reading Hotel.

With sustainability increasingly taking centre stage in the hospitality industry, hotel chains worldwide are implementing innovative strategies to ‘Go Green’ in every possible way. In this direction, Courtyard by Marriott Colombo has partnered with Magzter, the World’s largest digital reading destination, to become Sri Lanka’s first Smart Reading Hotel. The hotel now offers guests unlimited access to digital magazines and newspapers via Magzter during their stay.

Under this partnership, Magzter has converted the entire premises of Courtyard by Marriott Colombo into a touch-free and contactless Magzter Smart Reading Zone®. Anyone inside the hotel premises, including in-house guests, customers of other services, visitors and employees, can now get unlimited access to 8,000+ leading magazines and newspapers on the Magzter app. When guests are at the hotel, they can open the Magzter app, go to “SRZ” tab, grant location permission for the app and get free unlimited reading access.

Apart from binge-reading their favourite magazines and newspapers when they are at the hotel, guests can also download their favorite titles and access them offline when they go around the city for sightseeing or take a flight to their next destination.

Magzter offers thousands of popular magazines and newspapers across 40+ categories including automotive, business, comics, entertainment, fashion, health, lifestyle, news, politics, science, sports, technology and travel. Therefore, there is something exciting to read for everyone across all age groups.

Some of the popular Sri Lankan titles that can be read by guests at Courtyard by Marriott Colombo include Business Today, Lanka Woman, Explore Sri Lanka, Sirikatha, Lankadeepa, Divaina, Daily Mirror and The Island. Magzter also offers several global best-selling titles such as Time magazine, Newsweek, Car & Driver, India Today, Hello!, T3, The Guardian, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Elle, GQ, Her World, Forbes and Reader’s Digest, ensuring that guests will be thoroughly engaged.

At the forefront of the digital reading revolution, Magzter has already made a positive impact on the environment, saving tens of thousands of trees and various other natural resources. The collaboration with Courtyard by Marriott Colombo exemplifies Magzter’s dedication to providing an eco-friendly reading experience. With its global footprint expanding, the Smart Reading Hotel initiative is poised to revolutionize the guest experience, offering an innovative and sustainable approach to hospitality.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Magzter, designating Courtyard by Marriott Colombo as the first hotel in Sri Lanka to be officially recognized as a Smart Reading Zone. This innovative initiative underscores our dedication to providing exceptional guest experiences, seamlessly integrating hospitality and cutting-edge technology. Together with Magzter, we are transcending the traditional hotel experience, fostering intellectual engagement and cultural enrichment for our guests.”. – Elton Hurtis, General Manager, Courtyard by Marriott Colombo

“Courtyard by Marriott Colombo’s commitment to excellence aligns perfectly with Magzter’s vision for a digital reading revolution. Through our Magzter Smart Reading Zone®, we are excited to offer guests an extensive library of digital magazines and newspapers, enhancing their stay with a touch of modern sophistication.” – Girish Ramdas, CEO, Magzter Inc.

“We are delighted to partner with Courtyard by Marriott Colombo and offer their guests unlimited digital magazines and newspapers via our GPS-based and contactless offering, Magzter Smart Reading Zone®.
