Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic hotel that blends a contemporary designer style with the charms of a magnificent 200 year old Moorish mansion. Built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, the mansion is adorned with acres of Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, molded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and are one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this hotel involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.
Located in Bambalapitiya in Colombo 4, it is in the heart of Colombo's business district, however as it's neatly cosseted away from the busy Galle road by its own cul de sac, it is a gated and very private hotel.
Each of its suites is unique as rooms were created from within a house, and therefore, no two suites are alike. Each has its own distinct colour hues, layout and character. Yet all suites offer space and the finest in comfort and conveniences. Suites are 500 sqft (45 Sq mtrs) on average and go up to to 1,000 sq ft (90 sq mtrs) in space. What makes the Suites uniquely different is very distinct designer style, since every piece of furniture, decor, fabric and lighting has been custom designed by the hotels founder Lalin Jinasena. Contrary to common practice of sourcing furniture from around the world, The hotel was made to their design in Sri Lanka. Therefore the exclusive style of Casa Colombo cannot be seen or found anywhere else in the world.
The hotel also offers library and reception.
