The Casa Colombo is a superb Moorish residence transformed into a luxury design hotel and ideally located in the lively Bambalapitaya quarter of the Sri Lankan port city of Colombo. The trendiest address in the city is the work of designer Lalin Jinasena, and is equally popular with lovers of Sri Lankan traditions as it is with fans of contemporary design. The twelve unique rooms and suites offer guests upscale comforts with huge elevated beds and made to measure wood furniture sprung from Lalin’s fertile imagination. Each accommodation possesses high tech equipment as well as an office space. The Royal Suite is even more unique since it has a balcony and a private Jacuzzi. This haven of peace and relaxation also possesses the Ceylon Spa and a veritable jewel, the pink mosaic swimming pool surrounded by very contemporary designed glass deck chairs. Several extremely colorful restaurants enable guests to try local specialties. To discover Colombo, the perfect starting point is the Casa Colombo!


Colombo, the economic center of Sri Lanka is located on the west coast of the country. Its port where, still today, food products destined for European countries are embarked, is one of the city’s important landmarks. Several neighborhoods give Colombo its charm and demonstrate the different aspects of the city in which modern, contemporary architecture stand side by side with colonial buildings bearing witness to Sri Lanka’s history and its European influence. The 16th century fort built by the Dutch is a prime example. Today, it is home to numerous industrial and financial companies. The most traditional quarter is Pettah, very popular with tourists because of its local folklore and ancestral traditions as well as its markets and numerous Buddhist temples. Well informed visitors will try to coincide their vacation with the Sri Lankan festival of Vesak when, every year, this primarily Buddhist country celebrates the birth, the illumination and the death of Buddha. In Colombo, the city is illuminated with a thousand lights, and it’s a perfect occasion to share the celebration with the local and devoted inhabitants.

Sri Lanka’s trendiest hotel

In the lively Bambalapitaya quarter, behind an immense gate, we find an old Moorish colonial house, totally renovated and reinvented as a luxury design hotel by its owner, designer Lalin Jinasena. As one of the country’s trendiest addresses, lovers of traditional Sri Lankan charm and contemporary design are unanimous in their praise of the Casa Colombo.

Twelve unique rooms & suites are available for extraordinary moments of relaxation. The three particularly spacious Traveler Suites and the eight Corporate Suites offer guests unparalleled comfort with large, raised and illuminated beds, made to measure wood furniture, often sprung from the fertile imagination of Lalin Jinasena, and beautiful bathrooms with bathtub and shower and a waterfall effect. All suites have high tech equipment including flat screen TV, a DVD player, an iPod and a desk area, ideal for guests who are here for business and pleasure. Unique from every point of view, the Royal Suite offers 79 square meters of pure happiness. It has a dressing room, several TVs, and a luxurious bathroom with a magnificent tooled copper bathtub. It’s the only suite with a balcony and a private Jacuzzi.

The Ceylon Spa provides peace and relaxation thanks to a wide variety of treatments and massages inspired by ancient traditions, which guests can also enjoy in their own room. The swimming pool is a true jewel of the hotel with its pink mosaic tiles and its very designer glass deck chairs. Several sun cots are also available for maximum charm and maximum comfort. Colorfully decorated restaurants enable guests to discover the country’s cuisine: the HVN restaurant with its heavenly fresco, the ZaZa bar and its delicious tapas which can be enjoyed around the pool and the T Republic with its international cuisine are all well worth discovering.
