Neighbourhood

As part of our philosophy at Lantern, we are committed to social infrastructure and community development, and a responsible long term approach to Sri Lanka. We work with the community to ensure that we leave a positive footprint by respecting the people and the environment.

Our aim is to support select projects with the revenue earned by Lantern which will be passed on towards community development, such as our future Farmer’s market that will encourage local commerce.

We partner and support local and foreign organisations in their events and activities to raise funds for their noble causes. We prefer to work intimately with select groups to ensure that funds are used accountably, efficiently and effectively. See below for a list of these organisations.

We use solar hot water through our premises, ground well pumps for garden water usage, and are expanding our green footprint through modern treatment facilities. Our hotel uses minimal packaged produce and utilises no packaged products within the room amenities. We are committed to minimising waste.

We are committed to supporting the local wildlife, and actively support the protection, through education of local communities. There is a seasonal and healthy community of Turtles that frequent the Kamburugamuwa beach, laying and hatching here. We have been significant in sustaining this,

The group started their forst voyage in India, where they realised the opportunity to be involved in something fun and friendship building, whilst creating a worthwhile element of giving back to the communities around them.

The Pimp My Tuk Tuk event in Sri Lanka in 2014 was highly successful, covering almost 100kms, in 20 Tuk Tuk’s with 40 riders, the group raised over US$250,000.

We at Lantern were proud to have hosted the riders and to have supported their efforts in raising funds for Charities in Singapore and Sri Lanka, and looking forward to the next event to be held again in Sri Lanka in 2017.
