Heritance gets awarded for its hospitality

Heritance Hotels recently clinched some of the biggest awards at the Sri Lanka Tourism Awards 2010 reigning supreme as a chain of hotels with a heritage and an inheritance. Heritance Ahungalla was awarded the Best 5 star Resort in the island while the Heritance Kandalama entered the Hall of Fame.
The Heritance Tea Factory bagged the Best 4-Star Resort category for a second year, while Heritance Kandalama was awarded as the Best host hotel for Eco Tourism.

Managing Director Aitken Spence Hotels Malin Hapugoda told the Business Times that these awards are an indication of the fact that they are the best resort hotel in the island. He said the property of the hotels shows the architecture of the area as well while giving its customers a typical Sri Lankan expeience.

The Heritance brand recognizes the individuality of each property and with the locality in mind, the hotel in that particular area will speak for the uniqueness that is central to where it is situated. The first hotel to be branded as a Heritance hotel is the former Triton Hotel that is now known as Heritance Ahungalla. Designed by the renowned Geoffrey Bawa, it is a five star beach hotel, which still brings out memories of its original rustic elegance while keeping in line with the required standards of modern hospitality.
Heritance Kandalama became the second to be re-branded that was built overlooking the 8th wonder of the world the famous Sigiriya Rock Fortress.

The third hotel to be re-branded was The Tea Factory in Nuwara Eliya that is today a 57-room hotel unique in its tea factory based theme. It has been artfully convereted from an abandoned tea factory with its interiors giving a visitor a memorable experience.

The latest is the Heritance Maha Gedara in the South providing a luxurious accommodation and Ayurveda treatment facilities that opens this month. With 64 luxurious rooms the Ayurveda Treatment Centre is involved in providing an extensive treatment and holistic health facilities to help relax, restore and rejuvenate. Pampering is a uniqueness at the resort where a range of treatments are given with custom oriented services offered with the intention of healing the mind and body with Yogic and meditation therapies.

“The awards the Heritance chain of hotels clinched recently clearly indicates the fact that it is simply the best resort hotel in the island,” a company statement said.
