Industrial-chic boutique with a serene plunge pool and a sleek rooftop bar overlooking Colombo's skyline

The Look

Designed by architect Sunela Jawardene, Colombo Courtyard is a pint-size urban boutique hotel with just 32 rooms and 15 suites. A welcome departure from Colombo’s big box hotels. Interiors marry recycled materials with industrial-chic design. Think uncluttered open spaces punctuated with metal art installations, sculptures and dramatic lighting. Up at the Loft Bar there is recycled furniture such as vintage tractor stools and steel roof sheets, while the Scarlet Room restaurant falls more on the cozy side, dotted with spectacular photographs of the island.

Bed & Bath

Rooms pair cement and wood furnishings with bright hues, while suites (with separate parlors) offer a bit more elbow room — plus individual iMacs. All rooms have plenty of electrical outlets and creature comforts like 42-inch flat-screen SMART TVs, cappuccino makers and plump beds, as well as quirky extras like a retro hand-operated juicer and a bowl of oranges for fresh-squeezed OJ.


The Loft Lounge Bar is a cool hangout for guests and locals, as is the rooftop Cloud Café, where you can take in the city skyline over a long drink and some pub grub. The Scarlett Room is a full-service restaurant with affordable Mediterranean/Italian fare and the pun-tastic wine cellar, Grape Expectations, pairs New World wines and tapas. There’s also the newly opened swimming pool and pool bar at the Poolside Wing, which hugs the tranquil lap pool. Sun worshipers can pull up a lounger or hop in the courtyard’s plunge pool and Jacuzzi. Or kick back with a Balinese massage or a hot stone treatment at the Amber Spa.

We had two deluxe suites as good as any 5* hotel! Well-furnished suites with great king-sized beds, large bathrooms with good amenity kits, super internet and computer facilities, well-stocked fridge and snacks, good restaurants and a well-maintained swimming pool. Hotel manager and staff were great!

Excellent help from reception in arranging transport to anywhere we wanted.
