“Sustainability is fully integrated into the business concept of Aitken Spence Hotel Managements. Through the achievement of objectives in tandem – commercial and sustainable – the group objectively achieves a win-win, both from the perspective of commercial interests as well as sustainable development and environmental management. From the inception of its operations, sustainability has been at the very core of how business is done at Aitken Spence Hotel Managements.

In the long-term the group views its sustainability focus to be key not only to the financial and commercial interest of the group but also to Sri Lanka as a destination. With a growing number of travelers looking towards green destinations in an effort to minimize their own carbon footprints, the group is a forerunner in assisting Sri Lanka to achieving a green destination status. Furthermore, by protecting the environment. The culture within which it operates the group identifies its capacity to differentiate the product offer and retain a truly Sri Lankan identity.”

The long term vision of Aitken Spence Hotels is built on the foundation of sustainability – therefore, the strategies and operations that support our short, medium and long term goals are inextricably bound to principles of sustainable and responsible business.

The Aitken Spence Group has in place a sustainability framework, from which all subsidiaries including Aitken Spence Hotel Holdings derives our sustainability stewardship and structure.

At Aitken Spence Hotels, we’re committed to making a difference in the communities where our guests, associates and stakeholders live and work. Through our Sustainability Program, we’ve worked diligently to minimize the environmental impact our hotels and resorts have on our planet.

We understand that, to be truly sustainable, we must also focus our efforts on social and economic development. This holistic approach is the basis of our Sustainability Program.

By creating an organization-wide culture that is ingrained in sustainability and responsibility, we hope to inspire the individual members of our team and the multiple stakeholders we work with, to become catalysts of change – in their communities, their businesses and beyond

To ensure we accomplish our goals, we have Sustainability Teams in place at each of our properties. Please join us to ensure sustainability for all.




What is LEED?

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building project types, from new construction to interior fit-outs and operation & maintenance, LEED provides a framework that project teams can apply to create healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.





As a fundamental frame of reference for responsible and sustainable tourism, the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) is a comprehensive set of principles designed to guide key-players in tourism development. Addressed to governments, the travel industry, communities and tourists alike, it aims to help maximise the sector’s benefits while minimising its potentially negative impact on the environment, cultural heritage and societies across the globe.
