It was our last day in Sri Lanka and we booked this. It turned out to be the best of all places in SL. The apartment is so amazing with great host and care takers to take care of you. View from the balcony is absolutely serene. Rooms are cozy and smell of cinnamon was always refreshing. There is a huge common area where guests can relax, listen to some music and chill. Next time I’m in Colombo I’m not even looking for something else. This one will be the place for sure.

Spent a night here to have a little time to myself. The room was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. Both the hostess and the staff were friendly and courteous. The breakfast provided is phenomenal!

Most likely this has been the best ever choice I’ve made for booking my vacation place. You cannot say enough how Chitra is taking care of her guests. From entering the premises until leaving it after 10 days everything was heavily above expectations. Fresh juices, local breakfast, exceptional staff (!), spacious room, efficient HVAC, ocean view and 16th floor panoramic view on the city of Colombo! Also, on the ground floor there is a nice supermarket, ATM, restaurant and railway station. 1 minute to the beach. Chitra helps on daily basis to organise some trips, she has got this know-how and you can purchase the interior design pieces as this is not a gallery only :) should you have a flight in the middle of the night - Chitra will wake up with you to make sure you are safe to catch the plane. What more would you need? ;) thanks Chitra and the team! ❤️

I booked The Penthouse above Sea on the last day of my 8 day Sri Lanka Tour. As I saw the beautiful big apartment I liked it immediately and after enjoying the comfortable night stay and sumptuous breakfast, I felt I should have spent at least two nights there. Fantastic location, artistically decorated, spacious, comfortable accommodation, tasty breakfast and on top of it courteous and affectionate owners and maids, these are the highlights I sincerely felt.

The safe and luxurious property is close to Colombo having a charming view of the sea and City from a high terrace. Very comfortable; homely and friendly hosts who really take care of their guests with a local hot breakfast in the morning. A lovely place to even make a long stay.
