Travellers' Choice
Bejeweled as one of the finest five-star city hotels located in the heart of Colombo by the banks of the great Indian Ocean and in close proximity to Galle Face Green, the World Trade Centre and the Dutch Hospital Precinct, we welcome you to The Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo. With easy access for your shopping, entertainment and business needs, we will ensure your stay is perfect and your experiences are complete. The Kings Steakbar, which true to its name offers rare curated boards of prime steak fit for royalty, sourced from the US, New Zealand and Australia. The traditional Spanish pastry Churros lends its name to the patisserie replete with mouth-watering confections, while to fulfil a seafood craving, The Ocean serves up the freshest platters of seafood. The Harbour Court goes global with international cuisine served all day and the Honey Beach Club moves to the rhythm of great beach vibes, while Tavern provides local favourites at competitive rates. For the Chinese food connoisseur, the resident Chinese chefs at Yue Chuan will be tossing up Cantonese and Szechuan fare from its brand new menu.
