One can only start with.. OMG! Yes, this is the reaction you will have when you enter. This place is breathtaking. Beautifully, tastefully, amazingly breathtaking. And I’m not even talking about the view but just the place per se. I staid there for 5 nights but I could easily live there. One can not find one single thing that is not 5 star perfect; from decorations to furniture and not to mention spotless cleanliness. The room I staid in is connected to the huge and (almost) 360° view balcony. I spent my late evenings there just observing all Colombo under me. No noise, just big city lights of the capital of Sri Lanka. I spent the mornings looking at the ocean. Ohh.. almost forgot; the place is so high (16th floor) that there are no mosquitos. Woo hoo! ;) Seriously, an unforgettable experience in a magical place owned by kind (not fake kind to be precise) and very helpful people. The lady helped me with everything; restaurants, shops, hairdresser, taxi, etc. Needless to say, this is my place for every time I will be visiting Colombo. ps: I didnt take any pics cos I was making videos.

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.

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.
