Casa Colombo

Casa Colombo

*****

This jazzed up 200-year-old Moorish mansion in Colombo’s southern Bambalapitiya quarter overloads the senses: hip, hedonistic and highly styled, the design-driven interiors were created by owner Lalin Jinasena, a protégé of the legendary Geoffrey Bawa. Here, personal domos (butler/concierges) tend to your every whim, and a spa and bubblegum-pink pool entice you to relax and unwind.

Highlights:

  • Quirky interior design

  • Restored historic Moorish mansion

  • Personal service from the Casa butlers

  • Swim in the hotel's famously pink pool

In the know

Also need to know:

An intimate spa outlet pampers flight-flustered bods and minds. Smoking is only allowed in designated areas.Your personal domo (think butler/concierge) is on call 24/7 and if there’s anything you’ve forgotten or need – sun cream, mosquito repellent, a floppy hat, a movie, even a bottle of gin – he or she will source it for you in no time at all. Domos can also meet you at the airport in the hotel's vintage car with a glass of bubbly, check you in to your suite and handle any requests during your stay. How’s that for service?

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

I have lost feeling in my hand, such is Mrs Smith’s grip. We have one cardinal rule when travelling in South Asia: I sit behind the driver, so that I share his sightline, so that only I know exactly what kind of risks he’s taking. Only it was a long flight from London and we flopped into the taxi and clean forgot and now Mrs Smith has the racing line as we career down the Galle Road, overtaking on the inside, sliding between moving buses, weaving round rickshaws (and the occasional tractor) with a casualness that would make Vin Diesel blush.

We have been married for five days. Both of us nat

Dining information

Restaurant:

Once the mansion’s grand hall, HVN is now Casa’s main restaurant, serving up a fusion menu of western and Sri Lankan cuisine. Expect dishes such as chicken with ginger and lemongrass, and grilled lobster. A fresco of meditating richis (gurus) dominates one intricately painted wall, with ornate touches including glass tables and a huge antique ceiling fan suspended from the gold-moulded ceiling. For alternative dining spots, check out ZaZa or alfresco T Republic on the lawn, which offers light snacks including sandwiches and toasties, as well as tasty smoothies and iced coffees.

Top table:

We love the mood at ZaZa, where purple-cushioned, egg-shaped chairs beside cracked-glass tables overlook the hotel's stunning façade. At night neon uplighting adds rainbow appeal.

Last orders:

Feast from early morning until you hit the sack; closing time is when the last guest saunters off to snooze.

Room service:

A shortened menu of sandwiches, light bites and desserts can be chomped around the clock.

Hotel bar:

A sleek tea salon by day (ideal for a tea-inspired mocktail), glass-cube ZaZa Bar transforms into a luxe lounge by night, with an international wine list, liqueurs, crafty cocktails and chill-out tunes. Views out through the glass walls and ceiling take in Casa Colombo's ornate façade, water features and vistas of the stars come evening.
