I arrived earlier than the expected check in time and the host Thanuj was very flexible and prepared the place for me in a few minutes. The butler prepared me a nice Ceylon tea while I was waiting. When I entered the room I was amazed by the collection of art, antiques, and the interiors. The room was lightly sprayed with a nice lemon grass incence which was quite relaxing and the place was nicely chilled with air conditioning. The room (Tresure) has a beautiful bathroom which is opened to a private garden with a direct view of a small lotus pond which was so peaceful. Even the bathroom is decorated with nice artwork ! There was a collection of architectural, historical, and local novels which I wish I had more time to go through but would be so nice for a traveller who's planning to stay longer in Colombo. The host Thanuj is so very friendly and was kind enough to take his time to recommend me best restaurants in the area for me to have lunch and dinner. There were fruits, juice, oatmeal, milk, yogurt, tea, coffee and biscuits which was very convenient as I had to check out early in the morning to leave to Kandy. The stay in Colombo had never been more convenient and relaxing thanks to 55TG's. The host gave me a tour of the upstairs open plan apartment 'Angels' which included a laundry area, fully equipped pantry and kitchen. The place was so peaceful and eligant! I will definitely come stay there next time I come to Colombo for a longer stay. I would recommend 55TG's for any individual traveler or a couple coming to colombo and wants a peaceful and homely place to stay with a true Srilankan hospitality experience.
A home away from home with everything you could need! It is beautiful and comfortable. Did not expect a house to have two luxurious rooms with stunning interior. It had bathrooms, dining, lounge, TV, Wi-Fi, A/C, washing machine and a lovely garden.The staff was well trained, friendly and helpful throughout the stay.
They consistently delivers a great nutritious breakfast. The seasonal fruit salad with a hint of olive oil and Detox Juice was amazing. I will definitely be back and highly recommend!

My parents stayed here for several nights during a longer vacation in Sri Lanka. They LOVED it! Posh by any standard but truly superb in Sri Lanka. Every detail is well thought out and adds to a great stay. The bedding is comfortable and perfect for rest and recovery after more grueling island and city excursions. Thanuj is a fantastic host and he will ensure everything is perfect for you. He has a ton of experience in the hospitality industry but also has a true decorator's artistic touch. He will also offer great insight for the rest of your journey so do yourself a favor and make this your first stop in Sri Lanka!
