Green Sustainability

Heritance Kandalama is an architectural masterpiece of world renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa. The hotel is situated within the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka; within close proximity of five UNESCO World Heritage Sites.We represent an unique Green Philosophy that combines responsible tourism with environment friendliness.The Heritance Kandalama has won awards as one of the most eco-friendly hotels in the world. It is by far the most environment friendly hotel in Sri Lanka. Formally known as the Kandalama Hotel, it is the first nature based large scale hotel in Sri Lanka, this made us become more sensitive to environmental & local community needs.We have shown the way how big hotels too can be effective ecotourism players by contributing much more in terms of natural environment conservation and education, bio diversity protection, empowering local communities, supporting livelihoods dependent on tourism, preserving local traditions, arts and crafts and mitigating climate change.
