Casa Colombo

Address: 231, Galle Road, Colombo 04

Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic hotel that blends a contemporary deigner 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, molded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and is one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this hotel involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.
