Aitken Spence Hotel Holdings PLC was crowned the Gold Award Winner in the Hotel Companies Sector while Browns Beach Hotels PLC received a Certificate of Compliance at the 55th Annual Report Awards 2019 organised by Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) recently.

The hospitality chain celebrated another global recognition with TUI awards; a recognition from German guests and auditors. Heritance Ahungalla (Sri Lanka) and Adaaran Select Meedhupparu (Maldives) were named ‘TUI Environmental Champions 2020’. Awarded by TUI Group, the world’s leading integrated tourism group operating in more than 100 destinations worldwide, this recognition celebrates outstanding performance in driving sustainable tourism.

The true test of sustainability, and resilience is the capacity to maintain operations amid adversity; to support people and local economies dependent on business continuity for their sustenance. These achievements are a tribute to the strength and endurance of its people.

Aitken Spence Hotels have proved their mettle time and again, illustrating their strengths on multiple platforms. The team stole the show at the Culinary Art Food Expo 2019 walking away with the championship trophy and an impressive 130 medals in total. Heritance Aarah Maldives emerged ‘Overall Champion’ within a few months of operations.

Aitken Spence Hotels introduced LEED certified architecture to the Maldives with Heritance Aarah, the first LEED Gold certified resort in the Maldives. LEED buildings save energy, water, resources, generate less waste and support human health.

Aitken Spence’s Heritance hotels in Sri Lanka and Adaaran hotels in the Maldives remain Travelife Gold certified. Aitken Spence Hotels also received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 16 of its hotels and resorts across Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Oman and India.
