We stayed at Casa Colombo on 16th May 2012 for a couple of nights. We were under the impression that the hotel was near the airport but it was actually a good 1-1 1/2 hour journey. We arrived early and were welcomed with some ice tea and water. We lounged by the pool and the staff got our room ready for us promptly as we explained we had been travelling throughout the night. We expected a standard room but were totally shocked by how incredible the room was. It seemed huge and was like nothing we had seen before. The staff put a massive heart on our bed made out of petals for our honeymoon which was a lovely touch. We felt like we had got the hotel to ourselves as we hardly saw anybody else, which was was quite nice. We ate at the hotel restaurant on the first night and tried their curry which was very tasty. The staff were probably the politest people we have every met and really could not do enough. We ventured out to a shopping mall on the second day which was nice for a trip out but the clothing was not to our taste. On the second night the staff recommended that we went to a restaurant called Tao which is situated in a hotel called Cinnamon Grand nearby. We were not disappointed it really was a grand hotel. We queued in the taxi for about 20 minutes just to get inside the hotel. The restaurant served top class food and we could not fault it in any way. When we returned to Casa Colombo we opened the door to our room and the staff had lit tea lights all over the place. It was so romantic and a really thoughtful touch.
We wish we had stayed longer here as it was our favourite place in Sri Lanka!
