About Casa Colombo
Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic boutique hotel in Colombo that blends a contemporary designer style with the charms of a magnificent 200 year old Moorish mansion. Built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, the mansion is adorned with acres of Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, moulded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and are one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this amazing boutique hotel in Colombo involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.
Located in Bambalapitiya in Colombo 4, it is in the heart of Colombo’s business district, however as it’s neatly cosseted away from the busy Galle Road by its own cul de sac, it is a gated and very private hotel, which is known and recognised as one of the finest boutique hotels for your holidays in Sri Lanka.
Each of Casa Colombo’s suites are unique as rooms that were created from within a house, and therefore, no two suites are alike. Each has its own distinct colour hues, layout and character. Yet all suites offer space and the finest in comfort and conveniences, in par with some of the internationally renowned hotels in Sri Lanka. Suites are 500 sqft (45 Sq mtrs) on average and go up to 1,000 sq ft (90 sq mtrs) in space. What makes our Suites uniquely different is our very distinct designer style, since every piece of furniture, décor, fabric and lighting has been custom designed by the hotel's founder Lalin Jinasena. Contrary to common practice of mainstream hotels in Sri Lanka, who source furniture from around the world, the furniture at Casa Colombo consists of locally sourced raw material and has been conceptualized by the creator himself, who merged Sri Lankan charisma with sleek lines of modernity. Therefore the exclusive style of Casa Colombo cannot be seen or found anywhere else in the world.
There are 3 categories of suites: 3 Traveller Suites, 8 Corporate Suites and 1 Royal Suite.
All suites of Casa Colombo come with a 29 inch LCD TV by Nakamichi, which can be watched from the bed or the living room. A High Fidelity sound system by Nakamichi and movies on an Apple iPod are some of the mod cons. A music selector designed by Lalin, is also available which plays 6 genres of music from around the world and allows you to set the tunes to your mood. The painstakingly selected music collection ranges from Paris Jazz, to salsa, clubby tunes, to chill out lounge music. Though this impressive building, which has been converted to one of the trendiest boutique hotels in Colombo is 200 years old, our technology remains cutting edge giving a tough competition to all other hotels in Colombo. All rooms are WiFi enabled which is complimentary for our guests to use. There is also an intelligent bedside lighting panel that allows you to control your privacy and mood lighting from either side of the Super King Size (7ft x 7 ½ ft) bed. We believe that NOTHING SIGNIFIES LUXURY LIKE EXCESS. With this in mind, you have shampoos, shower gels, body lotions and essences in a variety of fragrances to choose from. This also includes his and hers vanity kits. CASA Colombo’s Corporate Suites come with a double sized bath tub, and our showers have an innovative twist, a secret that will remain for our guests to discover. For those who wish to switch to work mode, Corporate Suites are equipped with their very own business desk with a laptop, fax, printer, scanner and photocopy machine.
