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.Each of Casa Colombo's suites are unique as rooms that were created from within a house, and therefore, no two suites are alike. Each has its own distinct color hues, layout, and character. Yet all suites offer space and the finest in comfort and conveniences, in par with some of the internationally renowned hotels in Sri Lanka. Suites are 500 square feet on average and go up to 1,000 square feet in space. What makes the suites uniquely different is the very distinct designer style, since every piece of furniture, decor, fabric, and lighting has been custom designed by the hotel's founder Lalin Jinasena. Contrary to common practice of mainstream hotels in Sri Lanka, who source furniture from around the world, the furniture at Casa Colombo consists of locally sourced raw material and has been conceptualized by the creator himself, who merged Sri Lankan charisma with sleek lines of modernity. Therefore the exclusive style of Casa Colombo cannot be seen or found anywhere else in the world.All suites of Casa Colombo come with a 29 inch LCD TV by Nakamichi, which can be watched from the bed or the living room. A high fidelity sound system by Nakamichi and movies on an Apple iPod are some of the mod cons. A music selector designed by Lalin, is also available which plays 6 genres of music from around the world and allows you to set the tunes to your mood. The painstakingly selected music collection ranges from Paris Jazz, to salsa, clubby tunes, to chill out lounge music.
