Why we like it
A dimly-lit rooftop bar with late-night music at weekends appeals to a youthful clientele.
Colombo Court Hotel & Spa is Asia’s first Carbon Neutral hotel, having actively taken an interest in being a sustainable entity. From training the staff on good practices and placing reminders for guests on energy and water saving methods, the hotel also has a no-plastic bottle policy and ensures guests can refill their bottles instead. Guests can enjoy a truly guilt-free stay here.
Colombo Court Hotel & Spa is an urban boutique hotel set in the heart of the city. An ideal last stop on a holiday in Sri Lanka. Colombo is an hour south of the international airport.
