Fantastic boutique hotel – highly recommend!

Very elegant, business-type hotel. Interesting décor but too dark. Good location for airport.

"'I didn’t do it for money. I did it for posterity and for the challenge of doing something good, explains Fernanado of his motives for Tintagel, a colonial house that belonged to one of Sri Lanka’s most eminent political families. Speaking of the design elements that went into creating one of Colombo’s most unique boutique hotels, Shanth Fernando says he did not want to tamper with what was already a part of Sri Lanka’s modern political history.......he set about augmenting and adding to it in his own imitable, impeccable style......., giving the place a lush hue of gold and ivory, with an eclectic sense of style that never clashed with its grand colonial shell.'"

Introduction

Tintagel, a century-old presidential mansion, between whose walls much of Sri Lanka’s modern political history has been made, is now regarded as one of Colombo's finest – perhaps the finest - boutique hotel. It is housed in one of Sri Lanka’s most famous presidential residences and is the creation of Shanth Fernando, who also owns the Gallery Café - the capital’s leading restaurant -- and the popular lifestyle boutique Paradise Road. The original colonial mansion remains with an entirely new wing blended seamlessly at the rear, housing the exquisite bedroom suites, swimming pool and a small Spa. Elements of colonial architecture including high ceilings, ornate columns, arches and wooden floors have all been retained. Shades of white and ebony blended with vibrant red and black, permeate the interiors. Furnishings are exquisite: sofas from Portugal, hand-spun silk and woollen rugs from Nepal, modern art, silver gilded chandeliers and Egyptian cotton bedding. Stylish accommodation for the discerning traveller.
