The environmental impact of the hotel industry

The Grand Hyatt in Colombo, once completed at 753ft, will be the tallest structure in Sri Lanka. A few metres down on the Galle Road, the Hong Kong owned luxury hotel Shangri-La is expected to eclipse the Galle Face Green with its 500 rooms and all that money can buy. These are just the beginnings of what is yet to come.

Hotels, luxury buildings, housing projects and five star escapes have started mushrooming all over the Western Province. They lie hidden behind high walls and the bright, post card images that form the government’s repertoire of things to see and do when in Sri Lanka – but very few of them seem to contribute to the government’s goal of sustainable tourism.
