Reviewed April 24, 2012

After almost a month trip around Sri Lanka, staying in many beautiful hotels, I was amazed when I arrived at this fantastic boutique hotel. It has been awarded the title of the trendiest hotel in Asia and I can see how it has earnt this. Every little detail of this hotel is amazing, with little surprises at every turn!

The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off Galle Rd, it is a short walk to Majestic City. It makes traveling around Colombo pretty simple.

The suite that we stayed in was absolutely amazing, complete with our fantastic butler - Arroun! Our room had everything you could imagine and more! A funky and comfortable bed, MacBook for you to use whenever you might need, a hifi system which was already on when we arrived which creates a great ambience, a HUGE bathroom complete with two showers! The room was faultless and extremely well-designed. I loved it.

The food was delicious! As there are only 12 suites, you will find a welcome change from a standard breakfast buffet. They have a menu which offers individual breakfast buffet selections and the portions are excellent. We had some delicious pastries and fresh fruit before we even got our yummy breakfast choices.

The service in this hotel is impressive, particularly with their attention to detail. This is another benefit of having only 12 suites and having a personal butler. We never had to wait for anything, nothing was too hard and we were always well looked after.

The pool and sun beds need a mention here. Well-designed pool, with enough sun beds around for all guests. Fresh towels are already available on each sun bed.

This was the last, and the best, place we stayed at during our trip of Sri Lanka. It was an excellent way to end our trip and I cannot wait to stay here again on my next trip to Sri Lanka. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Colombo.

We had a spur of the moment decision to break our trip to the Maldives with a short stay in Sri Lanka - one night to be precise! We arrived on a Saturday night (11pm) and were flying out the next day at 6pm. On looking at the hotels options in Colombo and having spoken to a friend who had recently been to Sri Lanka we decided on Casa Colombo as it looked unique.

After a slightly difficult taxi journey from the airport (Taxi drivers do not know this hotel or its location!) we arrived. The staff quickly showed us to our room as it was late - we had been upgraded to a Corporate Suite (Ebenezer Place Suite). It was AMAZING! Huge room. Separate lounge room with an open shower area, and also a separate little room with a funky bath. A Macbook laptop was there for our use. Was truly an awesome room and it made us a little sad we only had the one night! The bath products were a nice touch - especially liked the peach conditioner!

In the morning we went down to check-out and get some breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. A fruit platter and basket of baked goods were delivered to the table. Coffee and juice as well. The breakfast options were plentiful. We didn't get to use the pool but it looked very tranquil and very interesting to look at. We left our bags with reception and went out for the dinner after some lovely recommendations for the hotel manager.

When we returned we had drinks and a late lunch - the food was very good. The service was faultless by the staff throughout our stay.

Overall a lovely experience and perfect for a stay in Colombo. I am sure we will be back as we're looking forward to exploring more of Sri Lanka on another visit.

We are so very happy that you were able to experience the uniqueness of CASA Colombo, even if it was just for a short trip. Thank you for your lovely review.

Sri Lanka has a lot to offer as a holiday destination, and so much variety, whether you’re interested in sunny beaches, the cool hill side, wildlife, or simply just shopping around in Colombo, Sri Lanka has it all, and so does CASA Colombo! What better way of relaxing after a tiring trip around the country, than spending a few luxurious days at CASA.

Yes, please do come to CASA Colombo again, and let us take care of you. We will make sure you have an experience like no other!

Sunny regards,
Horst

Wow, wow, wow. If you're flying into Colombo and thinking of bypassing it, don't. Make an effort and spend a night here. It was the first night of our honeymoon so we splashed out and Casa Colombo far exceeded our expectations. Absolutely stunning design; all the decor - down to the light fittings - was interesting and carefully chosen. Fountains for taps in the restaurant bathroom.

We ate dinner at the restaurant and it was amongst the best food we had in all Sri Lanka and incredibly reasonably priced. Order the rice and curry and get about 8 dishes of food for 500 rupees. While we were at dinner the staff refreshed our room and placed lit tealights all around our room, a lovely touch. The breakfast is brilliant; fresh fruit, coffee or tea, and then a Sri Lankan cooked breakfast. Highly recommend the hoppers and string hoppers.

Not so keen on having a personal butler, but Dan was great at his job. We're just not used to being waited on!

Don't pass this place up; it is tremendous.

We stayed at Casa Colombo for our last night in Sri Lanka. The room we had (Olcott Suite) was absolutely amazing - one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in!

We arrived to a very friendly welcome from our Domo Kamara. We were delighted to be told we had been upgraded and were so happy with our room. It has been so tastefully designed and decorated and the layout is great. We were disappointed that we had to leave so early as we had an early flight from the airport.

We were planning to head out into Colombo to explore in the evening however a very heavy storm meant we had to stay in the hotel. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food is very reasonably priced and of good quality.

Internet access is available throughout the hotel with a good signal and it is free of charge.

During the day we relaxed by the pool. The area is very fitting with the style of the hotel however it could benefit from a little love. The loungers are old and could do with replacing and the fan on the day beds look like they haven't worked for many years. Having said that, it is still a good place to relax and the pool is the right temperature to cool off from the afternoon sun.

If you like stylish hotels, stay here and you won't be disappointed. Hope you get Kamara as your personal butler as he can't do enough for you - a real asset to the hotel.

We will definately be back!

Room Tip: Book a corporate suite - Olcott Suite is stunning!

The hotel took a little while to find. Our guide book had it situated in the wrong block on Galle Road. After a small adventure in a tuk tuk we eventually made it there.

On our arrival we were upgraded to the main suite which was an amazing end to the holiday (see suite details below). We had our own butler called Dan who was very attentive and helpful and gave us numbers to contact him at any time for anything.

The hotel was very stylist and interesting. The food was very good and varied and amazing cheap for what you were served.

Only criticism would be the cleanliness of the pool. It was directly below a large tree so could probably do with a daily clean. Having said that the pool area was relaxing and secluded and the pool was good to cool off in in the humid city.

On the whole I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to stay fairly centrally in Colombo. It was on the main road and close to the sea. The facilities were great and staff attentive and it was definitely very different to the main chain hotels we stayed in.

Room Tip: The main suite is amazing. Free standing bath in the bedroom, laptop and internet with room, jacuzzi...

You certainly have an eye to spot the difference in us! Thank you very much for your lovely review of CASA Colombo, which we will share with the entire team.

CASA Colombo’s décor and interior is award winning, which we are very proud to boast about. It is an even greater achievement for us when we hear such nice comments from you.

We do agree that during windy days, it does take a bit more effort on our part to keep the leaves out of the pool, which we endeavour to accomplish always. However despite this, it is wonderful to note that you had the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing dip in our famous pink pool.

We look forward to seeing you again at CASA Colombo.

We stayed at Casa Colombo for 6 nights at the beginning of this month. We had room 5, the Chatham Street Suite.

The building is sensational, beautifully restored. The rooms are very spacious with an upstairs area for the television/bar area with a table (with printer) as an office space. There is a sofa which is quite small - just too big for one, not big enough for two. On the lower floor is the bed, two washstands, the toilet and shower. The lighting was quite muted, so not good for reading and also there was no good shaving light. The shower area was unlit, which did not particularly matter, but there was a constant light from the toilet cubicle as there was an illuminated pink telephone!

Watch out for the double suite doors - there was a definite knack to opening ours - needing three hands for the key, door knob and at least another hand or foot.

The restaurant (HVN) is beautifully decorated, if a trifle chilly, with an interesting and very well-priced menu. We ate there 5 of the 6 nights and were not disappointed. Unfortunately Zaza's (the outdoor cafe) was under development so we didn't have the opportunity to try that out.

We did use the pink pool with its very comfortable recliners. It is not ostensibly overlooked and feels a very private place.

The location is interesting, just set back from the very busy Galle Road, but surprisingly quiet. A number of shopping areas are located nearby (Majestic City, Barefoot) and also the Cricket Club Cafe (as we were in Sri Lanka for the cricket).

Overall delightful and we hope to return.

Room Tip: There are some rooms on the ground floor opening out to the dining area. These could potentially be...

Making your holiday with us an exclusive, private and personalized experience is what we aim for at CASA Colombo. Thank you for a really wonderful review…. We greatly appreciate your comments, which inspire and encourage us.

We are glad you had a number of days in order to enjoy what we are most famous for…. our “Pink” pool, our food and our hospitality. It certainly is unfortunate that you visited us while work was going on, on the new Zaza, but rest assured, we have a delightful surprise in store for you once it reopens which we are all very very excited about, and we hope you will be with us to enjoy the same real soon.

this hotel was the perfect start to our honeymoon. Even though we were there before checkout time, they got the room together as quickly as possible and we were in before lunch time. Kumara, our domo, was friendly and helpful and made our stay all the more enjoyable. The food was great and the daybeds by the pool were the perfect place to relax. We stayed in one of the corporate suites and it was worth the extra money just for that bath tub- amazing!!
Highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Colombo, it's one of the best boutique hotels i've ever stayed at.

Room Tip: the corporate suite is worth it for the amazing copper bath tub
