Shan Perera

Senior Travel Coordinator

The travel bug was prevalent with Shan from the day he was born in Italy to his university days in Sydney. He returned to Sri Lanka in 2009 after completing his degree in Business Administration from Macquarie University in Sydney and joined Penthouse Travels to expand his knowledge of the local travel industry.
His thirst for new experiences and friendly manner have gained him a lot of praise on the job from multiple clients who feel that they have been introduced Sri Lanka by an old friend. Shan likes to keep himself occupied by working on his car and driving around the island on his days off.

Vijith Oshaan

Assistant Accountant

Vijith is the resident dabbler of number at Penthouse Travels. A calm voice when dealing with hotel payments he does employ a stern tone when following up on credit invoices. His 4 years at Penthouse Travels have made him a valuable member of the team, the go to person if something goes wrong. Vijith is AAT qualified making him more than someone with a knack for numbers.

  • Hi Shan,
    We would thank you so much of your efforts to make our honeymoon trip the best we could ever imagine. The hotels, excursions, locals and nature were really wonderful. It was very nice to meet you for a short time. But one thing is for sure, we will come back to Sri Lanka. The short week at Maldives was a necessary stop to rest after a busy 10 days. All the views and impressions of Sri Lanka were overwhelming
  • Dear Shan,
    Hope you are all well. This is just a short note to say thank you for arranging our tour during our visit to Sri Lanka. We had a wonderful time visiting the old cities and all the ancient monuments, all very interesting and inspiring. The nature reserves, Horton Plains and Yala were also refreshing and calming, I could have easily spend a whole day at each location. Once again many thanks and best regards
