I first came to Highbury by hazard last September after I had spent several days in these typical business hotels due to work. Initially I planned to stay 1,2 days, finally I extended my stay by a week. Already 6 months later I am back at this lovely place and I enjoy every single day.
It is the combination of fascinating architecture, the tranquility in this bustling heart of the city and the hospitality of the owner.
Already when you enter the garden and the way to the house you feel this peaceful atmosphere around, topped by the chirping of birds.
The house has this very unique charisma, tropical Sri Lankan architecture combined with contemporary design, the rooms are on different levels connected by small stairs and bridges. Everywhere you find these little details and tasteful decoration. Each room has his unique flair, I adore every morning waking up with this amazing view surrounded by palm trees and the evening sitting on the balcony (it is the hideout apartment where I am currently staying).
Highbury is owned and managed by a very charming and hospitable family, very helpful and open minded.
There is free wi-fi in the house what is important for me due to the fact that I have to work from time to time and have to be online.
I enjoy every single day at this calm oasis in the heart of Colombo....highly recommended!
