Info : Colombo Courtyard
Asia Pacific Hotel Awards recently recognized Colombo Courtyard for its unique carbon neutral interiors, made up of recycled materials. Located in the heart of bustling Colombo city, this relatively new urban hotel is elegant and ecologically sound.
The crazy city of Colombo is full of life and colour: bustling streets, crowded restaurants, chic cafes and plenty of shopping. Colombo Courtyard is located just moments away from the action in Colombo 03. What makes this place stand out is the attention to detail: carbon neutral, ecological furnishings using recycled material, a simple conventional elegance, a first class spa, and of course the highlight: the fabulous rooftop bar overlooking the city.
Colombo Courtyard has elegantly furnished entry-level deluxe rooms or luxury suites. Each room has a king size bed, a 42-inch LCD TV, a rain shower, and a fruit platter upon arrival. For a special treat, book a suite with a private courtyard. New rooms are also being constructed in the Poolside Wing.
If you are looking for absolute tranquillity, you might choose another location: some of the rooms at Colombo Courtyard overlook a busy city street, and you can’t avoid a bit of traffic noise. But its location is ideal for checking out fast-paced Colombo’s city vibe (particularly with a cocktail in your hand on the rooftop!), and the staff are particularly keen to make this brand new hotel a unique urban and ecological experience.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
Most of them were superb and we had requested quiet rooms with sea/lake views where possible. Harriet had arranged this for us and her hard work paid of as they were all granted.
