Description

Originally built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, this boutique hotel is adorned with Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, moulded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, a true treasure of its era.

Located in Bambalapitiya in Colombo 4, it is in the heart of Colombo’s business district, however, as its neatly cosseted away from the busy Galle road by its own cul de sac, it is a gated and very private hotel.

There are three categories of suites: three Leisure Suites, eight Corporate Suites and one Royal Suite. All suites come with a 29 inch LCD TV by Nakamitchi, which can be watched from the bed or the living room. A High Fidelity sound system by Nakamitchi and movies on an Apple iPod are some of the mod cons. A music selector designed by Lalin, is also available which plays six genres of music from around the world and allows you to set the tunes to your mood. The painstakingly selected music collection ranges from Paris Jazz, to salsa, clubby tunes, to chilled out lounge music.

Though the building is 200 years old, the technology is cutting edge. All rooms are WiFi enabled which is complimentary for guests to use. There is also an intelligent bedside lighting panel that allows you to control your privacy and mood lighting from either side of the super king size bed.

The hotel boasts four dining options. HVN, the grand hall of the mansion converted to a stylish restaurant with gold carved ceilings, an antique fan that spans 18 feet, organza glass tables and a fresco of richis meditating in the clouds. The menu features an eclectic fusion of local cuisine and flavors prepared by renowned chefs; the food and atmosphere is nothing less than heavenly. Zaza is an outdoor restaurant, surrounded by water and overlooking the magnificent façade of the mansion. Decorated with egg shaped chairs and cracked glass tables, This outdoor restaurant is a relaxed dining experience that brings together Local flavors and global lounge music to create an epicurean dining experience. T Republic, located on the lawn facing the front façade of the mansion, is yet another airy outdoor venue from which to choose to dine in.
