About Tintagel Colombo
Paradise Road's Tintagel Hotel inhabits a century-old ex-presidential mansion whose walls have been privy to much of Sri Lanka's recent political history and is now regarded as one of Colombo's finest boutique hotels. 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 Cafe - 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.
The Tintagel could not be better located for exploring Colombo. Whether you're after some retail therapy, city sightseeing or soaking up the world-class restaurant scene. Colombo has it all, and Tintagel provides the perfect platform from which to see it. Must see sights include the Gangaramaya Temple, which is one of the most important temples in Colombo and is only a 5-minute drive from the hotel. You are also a walk away from the Independence Memorial Hall located at the Independence Square in Cinnamon Gardens and short drive from the Pettah neighborhood with the infamous Pettah Market. Tintagel Hotel also offers excursions to their sister hotel located down in Bentota for a short trip to the sandy beaches and the relaxed environment of the south.
Situated in the heart of Colombo's most exclusive neighborhood, the Tintagel is less than an hour drive from Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport.
