Hidden away from view of the busy thoroughfare that is the Galle Road, The Casa Colombo is right on trend.
Traditional decor blends effortlessly with quirky design and provided everything we needed in the right place, fully functional and sartorially pleasing. This is a very comfortable hotel. Added to that the attention of your very own concierge who can advise on where to go and what to see, but also orders transport and takes you personally to the shops and this is a pretty up-market experience.
The hotel building is apparently quite old and colonial in style. It seems to have watched the City of Colombo grow up around it and that is the only irritant. There are no views beyond the hotel compound because you are surrounded by taller buildings. However inside the buildiong the frosted glass windows prevent that being a real problem and the interior and poolside courtyard style makes everything feel very comfortable.
After dark you can see some real genius behind the hotel's design working with their lighting throughout the hotel and grounds. Even on two very wet nights when there in the Monsoon, the reflections and light plays through glass and over water were extraordinary.
The blend of different modern and traditional elements really works and the food served in the restaurant follows a similar theme, with the meals we had (2 X Breakfast, 1 X Lunch & 1 X Dinner) reflecting a good range of choices from the really fabulous traditional Sri Lankan food and International options.
This is a great place to start or finish a visit to SL which should ease you into the pace of life there in a very comfortable way.
