Passed down through five generations this historic house has been lovingly converted into a charming intimate abode, consisting of eight elegant suites each located around the central courtyard, petit pool and exotic garden.

The rooms have been beautifully finished with fine local antiques, plush ebony four poster beds, roll top baths and marble basins all with a clear nod to its fascinating Ceylonese history. There is a small private dining room and lovingly prepared home cooked meals can be served on the terrace and courtyard. Here your butler will ensure you enjoy your stay in your home from home.

With its fashionable location on the edge of Cinnamon Gardens, Maniumpathy is a great base from which to explore Colombo’s sights, galleries, shops, temples, restaurants and museums.
