Housed within the walls of a two-hundred-year-old Moorish mansion, Casa Colombo perfectly reflects the cultural eclecticism of the capital for which it is named. Inside, the hotel pays tribute to the retro-chic styling of Sri Lankan designer Lalin Jinanesa, the man responsible not only for founding Casa Colombo but also for designing every last aspect in such a way as to make this hotel utterly unique. From its twelve individual rooms to its incredible Pink Pool, Casa Colombo offers an accommodation experience that goes far beyond simply providing a place to rest one’s head. This hotel is exceptional for more than its remarkable aesthetics, however. It also offers a first-class location within Colombo’s ritzy business district and unparalleled service provided by Casa Domo butlers personally assigned to cater to each guest’s every need.
