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.

Horrendous service

I would highly recommend not to stay unless you want to be ripped off. Our group had heaps of extras on our food and drinks bills. The bills are not itemised, therefore there is no way is deciphering what is correct.

On the surface a nice hotel.

Great place to stay

Nice hotel with a great atmosphere. Relax in the middle of Colombo.
The rooms are big and confortable .
Swimming pool is very nice but it was too cold to swim.
Breakfast was tastefully.
Staff is extremely nice and professional.

Helpful hotel

I had an excellent experience staying in this hotel. My stay was for 10 days, it is located in a place where all the amenities are close by. There are plenty of restaurants of various types within close proximity. The room I stayed, is large and clean. The staff working at the hotel are friendly and helpful, I would be happy to stay in the same hotel if another opportunity arises. Siva
