We stayed at Casa Columbo for a first night in Sri-Lanka, and our only regret was that we didnt book our last night here too, but we still went back to eat in the amazing restaraunt.
Casa Columbo has been designed so wonderfully, and with no expense spared, the bedrooms really are stunning, with the most amazing showers and bathrooms, great toiletries, dressing gowns, lovely furnishings, music and satellite television, and huge comfortable beds, you really couldnt ask for anymore. It was amazing to stay here after such a long flight, in such comfort and luxury.
We were collected from the airport by a lovely driver who was very informative about Sri-lanka and enjoyed giving us any information we wanted with it being our first trip. The staff greet you on arrival to the hotel with a much needed cold drink and many smiles, and take your luggage to the room, Our personal butler Arrun was there to show us around and help with anything we needed and helped us to plan the first part of our sri-lankan adventure.
The hotel itself is just fascinating to look around, it has amazing features, furniture and art at every turn, and is by far the loveliest place we have ever stayed, and definitely the most unique, this is boutique at its best.
As for the restaurant, the food is simply amazing, and very well priced especially when you see and taste the quality, it really is fantastically made and the rice and curry is really something, some of the best food we had in sri-lanka, and the restaurant staff are very friendly and professional, but happy to talk and share information regarding anything you want to know, Ahmed helped lots with teaching me about sri-lankan food and cooking, it was such a pleasure to meet everyone, and to be greeted with kindness and smiles any time of day. And the ambience of the restaurant is truly wonderful, with the most beautiful artwork and design.
The outside looks amazing night or day, and its a delight to sit outside by the pool in the evening with a drink, and the new bar will be a great addition outside the front of the buliding too.
We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone, and we cant wait to return next year, the Casa Columbo really does leave a wonderful lasting impression that you cant just enjoy once!
The Casa Columbo and its staff are really special, and we cant wait to return next year.
