This jazzed up 200-year-old Moorish mansion in Colombo’s southern Bambalapitiya quarter overloads the senses: hip, hedonistic and highly styled, the design-driven interiors were created by owner Lalin Jinasena, a protégé of the legendary Geoffrey Bawa. Here, personal domos (butler/concierges) tend to your every whim, and a spa and bubblegum-pink pool entice you to relax and unwind.
Your personal domo (think butler/concierge) is on call 24/7 and if there’s anything you’ve forgotten or need – sun cream, mosquito repellent, a floppy hat, a movie, even a bottle of gin – he or she will source it for you in no time at all. Domos can also meet you at the airport in the hotel's vintage car with a glass of bubbly, check you in to your suite and handle any requests during your stay. How’s that for service?
