Well who wouldn’t love this place! Uber luxury, retro-chic boutique with an outrageously sophisticated sense of style, taste and high end design. It's not really like anything else, it stands out because it is brilliantly unapologetic about it's originality. Think giant over-sized fans spanning the entire width of richly detailed gold ceilings and rooms with emphatic arches and elegant one of a kind furniture that has been designed and made especially for this boutique hotel. It beautifully mixes contemporary, forward thinking features with old fashioned romantic style that gives a nod to Sri Lanka’s colonial past. The building itself is a 200 year old Moorish mansion that is secretly tucked away in the heart of Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo. With all the hustle and bustle of Galle Road you could be forgiven for driving past the small road that leads to the entrance of the hotel without knowing this jewel of a boutique hotel was even there.
There are only 12 rooms in this city boutique hotel and they are all suites, so it can be tricky to get availability at busy times of the year. The rooms are probably the most spacious, stylish and most luxurious in Colombo. Each room is unique and different from the other in terms of layout and even the way it is furnished, as everything is an original piece custom designed by the hotel's creator, sourced and manufactured in Sri Lanka especially for the hotel. These rooms are all packed full of design features, including beautiful furniture, 15 foot high moulded ceilings, quirky phones, bedside control panels, hi-tech sound systems, neon wardrobes, floating super king size beds (7ft x 7 ½ ft), exclusive toiletries and waterfall showers. The whole place screams luxury and makes you feel so very special and welcome. If this wasn't enough to make you feel relaxed at this gorgeous boutique you will even have your own personal butler (called a Domo) on hand to give you 24/7 personalised concierge assistance for anything you may need to make your stay perfect and spectacular. As the hotel reservations manager told us 'nothing exceeds luxury like excess'. You will feel like a superstar here.
