Seasons in Sri Lanka
The name ''Maniumpathy'' is a tribute to the town of Manipay, which is the origins of the first owners in the Jaffna family. Maniumpathy is a stunning stately home with a history spanning over a century. It has been renovated and transformed into a boutique hotel with the intention of immersing its guests in an atmosphere reminiscent of the pursuits of the house's previous inhabitants. As such, it is the perfect opportunity for guests to exploit their curiosity about and also enjoy a unique perspective of past Sri Lankan culture. The colonial structure that existed has been built up over many generations and it gives the hotel a completely unique character. A rather intriguing and personal touch is that each of the rooms is named after a woman from a different generation of the Jaffna family.
Maniumpathy strives to offer an array of facilities that make a guest's stay not only pleasant but unique and memorable. Guests have the opportunity to simply relax and bask in the tropical sun by the pool, then enjoy casual dining at The Nandi terrace restaurant set in the courtyard and overlooking the pool area. For a finer dining experience, guests have the option to treat themselves and take full advantage of The Grand Ebony Room. With the grandeur of a 16-seat dining table, crystal candelabra and dining under the dim light of antique chandeliers, guests truly experience a remarkable and memorable evening within these historic walls.
Maniumpathy is a luxury boutique hotel located in the bustling heart of Colombo city. Colombo is a small yet vibrant city full of delightful surprises around every corner. This city is proud of its history with nationalist monuments showing its past and present standing proudly side-by-side. The hotel is located in the Cinnamon Gardens area of Colombo. Its close proximity to some of the leading shopping centers in Colombo, such as the Odel department store and House of Fashion, is a shopaholics dream come true. The hotel is surrounded by art galleries, chic boutiques, many coffee shops, restaurants and is also located just 5 minutes away from the Royal Colombo Golf Club, providing guests with a plethora of activities to get their teeth into.
How to get there
Airport shuttle services are available with prior organisation. Access by car is simple from Colombo Airport with a distance of approximately 15km the swift drive takes a time of approximately 40 minutes, however, this duration is heavily dependent on traffic. Parking is available on site.
Air Taxi can also be used. The duration of travel from the Air Taxi landing point to the hotel is approximately 20 minutes, but again this is highly dependent on traffic.
When to go
Colombo is known as a ''year-round'' destination and can be enjoyed all year round. The weather is pleasant for the majority of the year, except for heavy monsoons during the months of June-September. The wetter months are still sunny and therefore should not necessarily be avoided. January to March are the sunniest and driest months and during January, the popular Duruthu Perahera Festival takes place.
Disability access: entry to the property is only by one small step. Common areas and all 6 ground floor bedrooms easily accessible via small steps, therefore wheelchair access could be limited.
Smoking is permitted in common areas only.
Travelling with children
Children over the age of 5 are welcome.
