When this five star Colombo hotel was built in the mid-1970s, it reflected the ethos of that time. It was built to satisfy the tastes of society, without a focus on resource efficiency and sustainability. However, the situation changed when the hotel was recently refurbished and re-hauled at the cost of over $20 million.
Today, this modernized hotel has over 500 guest rooms and suites, over a dozen restaurants, and several function halls. It employs around 1200 employees and is considered a prominent and popular corporate hotel. The management’s business philosophy is centered on growth beyond profits, within the framework of its commitment to sustainability.
