Lobby Décor Celebrating the victory of light over darkness Diwali or Deepavali is also known as the festival of lights, is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. Diwali is the brightest festival of India and signifies the victory of light over darkness. Rangoli symbolizes happiness, unity and good luck and at Shangri-La Hotel Bengaluru a rangoli that was 20 x 20 feet length was prepared to mark this special occasion. Peacock is associated with Goddess Saraswati, a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and knowledge. And our team of florists adorned the lobby with a grand peacock made out of orchids.

Lobby Décor

Christmas Time “Tis the season to be jolly” was indeed the mood of the day for anyone who walked into Shangri-La hotel, Bengaluru’s lobby in December. With an 26 feet tall Christmas tree dominating our lobby and decorations in shades of blue and silver, the feel of winter wonderland truly came through. Kudos to Mathew and team for bringing this North Pole wonderland to life.

Congratulations on your Bundle of Joy!!!

To ensure our colleagues take as good care of themselves as they do of our guests, a general health check up camp was organized on 11 December 2019 in partnership with Fortis Hospitals. Approximately 100 colleagues participated and after the initial tests, a doctor consulted

each of the colleagues to analyze the results and provide his prognosis.

Caring For Our Community

In our constant effort to give back to the community, we organized a medical camp for our embrace partner- Angel’s Orphanage. 48 children received free of cost general health check up to ensure their good health and vitality. Those children's who require further follow ups will be taken care of by the hotel.

Children's Day Celebrations

Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November every year as a tribute to India's First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru who was fondly known as “Chacha Nehru” among children. To celebrate this special day colleagues from SLBL took 44 children from our Embrace Partner- Angels orphanage, out for a day of fun and adventure at Cubbon Park & Bal Bhavan.

Charity Bazaar – Promises Fulfilled

The proceeds from the Charity Bazaar held on June 2019 helped us in our commitment towards driving our sustainability initiatives with our embrace partner – Angel’s Orphanage. A total sum of INR 31,600 was collected and this amount was utilized towards buying a Washing Machine for Angel’s Orphanage.

A hearty thank you to all our colleagues for their valuable contribution.

However this year they decided to do more and chose to become Secret Santa’s for the children of Angels Orphanage- Our Embrace Partner.
