New to Five Star Alliance: Curtain Bluff

December 13, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory that juts into the sea between two beautiful beaches. One is calm, ideal for swimming and watersports; the other beach is washed by ocean surf. 72 rooms and suites, all with staggering seascape views, are spread out along the Surf Beach and up the bluff. There are two restaurants: the open-walled Tamarind Tree serving breakfasts and candle-lit dinners, and The Sea Grape restaurant where barefoot casual lunches and romantic dinners are enjoyed one step from the sand and a few feet from the water’s edge.

Curtain Bluff

The resort's exceptional facilities include a championship tennis center, a fully equipped watersports center (scuba, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and kayaks), a squash court, and fitness center. When it's time to relax, there's a tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beach side swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.

Casa Colombo is a 12 suite retro-chic boutique hotel in Colombo that blends a contemporary designer style with the charms of a magnificent 200-year-old Moorish mansion. Built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, the mansion is adorned with acres of Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, molded ceilings, and Moorish styled balconies, and is one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this amazing boutique hotel in Colombo involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.

New to Five Star Alliance: Hotel Molitor Paris

November 23, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

Those who saw the award-winning movie Life of Pi (or read the book) will remember the legendary pool Piscine Molitor. The book and movie's hero was named Piscine Molitor, because his father wanted him to be as clean as the pool's water. Pi later shortened his name due to teasing at school. In addition to being featured in Life of Pi, Olympic gold medalist and future Tarzan actor, Johnny Weissmuller, was once a lifeguard at the pool. In a photoshoot held at the pool in 1946, the modern bikini was revealed for the first time. The pool also used to double as a skating rink in the winter. In 1989, the pool closed due to lack of funds, and the site became a magnet for graffiti artists.  

Hotel Molitor Paris

After 25 years, the pool was recently reopened as part of the new Hotel Molitor Paris. With views of the summer pool, the 124 rooms at the 5-star MGallery hotel invite you to discover this wonderful location: enjoy relaxing in the spa, swim in the indoor pool, share a cocktail on the rooftop or savor the menu dreamt up by 2 generations of Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. Relax: you are at the Molitor.
