The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Havelock Place Bungalow has long been a precious thing in Colombo: a characterful small hotel offering great historical charm. This peaceful and elegant alternative to the major five-star properties began life in the 1940s as two separate private colonial bungalows which have been skilfully merged and restored by Sri Lankan owners. Comfortable rooms stylishly decorated with original Dutch period antiques, a garden restaurant set amidst tropical trees and bird song, delicious home cooking and caring staff makes this a tempting hideaway, perhaps at the beginning or the end of your holiday in Sri Lanka.
Havelock Place has three Suites and four Standard Rooms all with a/c and ensuite bathrooms with h/w showers or bathtubs, wash basin, and w/c. Most rooms have private patios or access to the gardens. All suites and standard rooms have WiFi and are elegantly furnished with antique Dutch period furniture including canopied four poster beds, writing bureaus, and almairahs.
The sitting room, which also doubles up as a small art gallery, is the social focal point, for guests and family friends alike. Meals are served in the dining room or the patio in the leafy garden alongside a small swimming pool and Jacuzzi. A thoughtful a la carte restaurant menu offers a mix of Sri Lankan and Western dishes as well as delicious deserts including home-made ice creams.
Havelock Bungalow has a secluded setting in central Colombo that will delight clients looking for a tasteful, personal touch. The drive from Colombo's international airport is about 45 minutes.
