Surrounded by restaurants and cafes in a residential hub of Colombo, Maniumpathy is a palatial eight-bedroom colonial villa which was home to five generations of one of the most distinguished families in Colombo. With a vibrant history spanning over 100 years, Maniumpathy radiates old-world splendour with elaborate Victorian architecture, complemented by luxuries of the modern world. The main living area has charming, cosy interiors and sits between a dining room and a courtyard with a pool which paves the way to the suites. Maniumpathy accepts children aged 7 years and above.
