The "super budget" hotel, part of the group that owns budget airline easyJet, said on Monday it signed deals with British companies 3SV Limited and MHA Hatfield Limited for developments in the two countries, which will comprise a combination of new-build hotels and takeovers.

 the company expects to open over 200 rooms in Sri Lanka, 100 of which should be ready by 2022.

"easyHotel has made good progress over the last year against its plans for the international expansion of the brand," said Guy Parsons, CEO of easyHotel.
