Casa Colombo | Colombo
14 Jun 2019 - 17 Jun 2019
Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic boutique hotel in Colombo 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, moulded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and are one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this amazing boutique hotel in Colombo 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, which is known and recognised as one of the finest boutique hotels for your holidays in Sri Lanka.
