Where to stay

Some of the wonderful places to stay that we frequently recommended.

Maniumpathy £££££

  • Sri Lanka
  • City

Maniumpathy is located on the edge of Colombo’s most affluent neighbourhood, elegantly restored from a heritage home dating back to 1906. Named after family matriarchs, each of the eight rooms tell its own story through one-of-a-kind artefacts, sepia family photographs and aged Ceylonese prints. Four-poster beds, slipper bathtubs and strong showers all proffer 20th-century luxuries though the character of this grand abode which remains pleasingly unchanged.
