Awarded with the EU Switch

Orient hotel is proud & honoured to announce that we have been adjudged the Energy Conservation Champion in the 50 room category at the EU SWITCH – Asia Greening Hotels awards – 2013 held on the 14th of October 2013.

Greening Sri Lankan Hotels is a European Union funded initiative under the Switch-Asia Program, in association with The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, which encourages and aids in the implementation and enhancement of conservation through improvement of energy, water and waste management systems.

It is a great honour for us to have been chosen for this prestigious award especially since we joined the EU SWITCH program just over a year ago and this recognition of our endeavors in the areas of conservation and sustainability within this short period of time underscores our commitment to eco-friendly and sustainable tourism. We have always been conscious of the environmental impact and work hard to minimize and indeed obviate any negative effects on the planet.

This award is an endorsement of our efforts in this area and is a tremendous encouragement to us and will spur us onto further efforts to reduce our carbon footprint by minimizing our water and energy consumption and waste generation.

Orient hotel which started out as a small family run hotel four decades ago with the late Mr. Fred Perera at the helm, has over time become one of the most prestigious properties in the Hill Country. Carrying on the traditions instilled by him, we are continuously seeking to improve and develop along with Global demands & trends.

We have great plans for the future, including the expansion of our organic garden so that our guests will be served with fresh chemical free produce. Also another plan which is underway is the development of a green garden area which will provide our guests with a serene and relaxing haven where they can relax and unwind. We are committed to using recycled and recyclable material as far as possible for this project and indeed for all other future projects as well.

Orient hotel is led by Mr. Rohan Perera a Chartered Accountant by profession and continues on the legacy left behind by our Founder the late Mr. Fred Perera. "Team Orient" extends our sincere thanks to all of you who have made our forward march possible and have contributed to our success with your unstinting support.

Finally we wish to assure you of our unwavering commitment to conservation and to further enhance our environmental friendly practices thereby contributing towards making our planet a cleaner and healthier place to live in for our future generations.
