This is a very charming colonial beach side hotel. It’s historic and iconic in the heart of Colombo. Visiting here is like stepping back in time to the grandeur of a bygone era yet is fully modern and luxurious and allows you to experience how old luxury hotels should be run. Everything is just done properly and with a huge smile. Nothing is too much trouble here.
When our founders lived in Sri Lanka they used to visit here practically every other weekend for 3 years as it's so lovely.
Established in 1864, it's the oldest hotel East of the Suez. It is full of old-world charm. This hotel has played host to royalty and celebrities alike over the years. It all has all facilities you would expect from a top beach side hotel in a city including beautifully appointed ocean view rooms, a gorgeous spa, a few top-notch restaurants, private wine cellar, an historical royal car, and last but not least an amazing salt water swimming pool that has the best view of the beach anywhere in Colombo.
We know that you will have a great stay here.
