Got into Sri Lanka early in the morning and booked this place online beforehand. Was absolutely perfect for a quick stopover. Location right next to the lake, and despite being so close to busy areas, it was incredibly quiet and felt quite secluded. The rooms were really nice, good showers and comfortable beds (slept for 14 hours!). Our view from the room was of an air conditioning unit as were on the ground floor but we were out most of the day. And the breakfast was just amazing, just put aside some extra time due to staff being quite relaxed. Nice place to stay overall.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 'Taru Villas - Lake Lodge', Colombo, one of the city's first accredited hotels, was transformed into a stunning city break haven in 2009. Keen to respect the rich heritage of a building which had been in her family for four decades, Nayantara 'Taru' Fonseka embarked on a project which would crystallize into the gold standard for 'luxury-for-less' hotels in Colombo, Sri Lanka. With her creative emphasis on lines, light, and space, Taru's brainchild is the template for contemporary elegance and excellence. It is testament to the tranquility of this accommodation in Colombo that you could easily forget just how close you are to all the amenities that any thriving city has to offer. ... more less
