NUWARA ELIYA: Alpine Hotel Nuwara Eliya has won the prestigious Eco-Friendly award for the "Field Ornithology Group" of Sri Lanka recently and recognised as a partner in the "Bird Friendly Concept" network. The Hotel, surrounded by Nuwara Eliya's ever-green mountains, is committed to providing an eco-friendly atmosphere.

The plus point for Alpine Hotel is that it has been built overlooking Nuwara Eliya's two main tourist attractions - the famous race course and Gregory's Lake.

The cottage type hotel has 25 spacious and luxurious guest rooms with all modern facilities of a star class hotel. All rooms are equipped with hot/cold water, colour TV, modern heaters, telephone facilities etc.

The added beauty of the luxury property owned by young, energetic D. G. Mahinda Kumara, a member of the Nuwara Eliya Municipal Council, who won the prestigious "Eco-Friendly Award", the first in Nuwara Eliya, is that all electrical fittings and furniture are of Italian origin.

"I wanted to make my hotel the best in Nuwara Eliya. During the construction period every "stone" was supervised by me and all fittings and interior decor were selected by me to make 'Alpine' a truly luxury and eco-friendly hotel in 'Little England'," Mahinda Kumara said.

He said that four permanent ecologists have been recruited to the Eco-Adventure Travel section of Alpine Hotel after winning the Eco-Friendly Award, to offer tourists, both foreign and local, the very best in Eco-Tourism in and around Nuwara Eliya.

The food offered by Executive Chef Gunaratne Banda, who has over 30 years experience in food and beverage, is star class and nothing but the very best is offered in Sri Lankan, Western and Chinese cuisine at the hotel's main restaurant and room service.

Alpine Hotel is flanked by two beautiful mountains - Mount Pedro and Single Tree, and guests are offered a panoramic view of Nuwara Eliya's hill country from their guest rooms.

The hotel offers excursions to mountains, waterfalls, boat rides in Gregory's Lake and safaris to Hakgala Botanical Gardens, Hortain Plains and other places of tourists attraction.

"Alpine Adventure Tours, which is a subsidiary of Alpine Hotel, offers exclusive deluxe wildlife safaris and nature tours including trekking, camping, bird watching, mountaineering, rafting, mountain biking, fishing, adventure sports etc.", chairman Alpine Hotel (Pvt) Ltd D. G. Mahinda Kumara said.
