Overview

Tintagel is a private hotel in central Colombo that offers both seclusion and tranquility, not to mention convenient access to the city and its many attractions. This former colonial residence offers boutique accommodation and is well presented and pleasantly decorated throughout. Of interest is the hotel’s important role in historic national politics: Tintagel was the site of the assassination of S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike, Sri Lanka’s fourth Prime Minister. His death paved the way for his wife, Sirimavo Bandaranaike, to become the world’s first female Prime Minister. The hotel, one of two belonging to the Paradise Road chain, today welcomes travellers keen to discover Colombo.

Colombo, a veritable cultural melting pot, is right on the doorstep, but it’s worth spending time enjoying the hotel’s many facilities. There’s a fully equipped gym, and yoga classes held in studios nearby can be booked at reception. Guests can swim or sunbathe at the lap pool and relax at the spa, where indulgent massages are available. There’s a lovely library, home to a collection of coffee table books to browse and bound books to delve into. There’s a bar and two restaurants offering international cuisine, one al fresco, and the other indoors. There’s also a private dining room for use if booked in advance.

Tintagel has a total of 10 suites, all of which are stylishly decorated and handsomely furnished, with plenty of amenities to make for a comfortable stay. There are three classes of accommodation available: Royal Suites, the Superior Suite and Executive Suites. All of the suites are individually designed and have plenty of space, with bedrooms, living spaces and bathrooms all of a very comfortable size; amenities common to all suites include an LCD TV with a DVD library available on request, complimentary bespoke toiletries, high-quality bedding and a minibar. The Royal Suites all have balcony access, whilst the ground-floor Executive Suite has its own outdoor lounge area complete with private plunge pool. Children are very welcome to stay here, though there are no facilities or services specifically for children available.

The hotel is very well placed for exploring Colombo. The Odel Shopping Mall is a convenient five minute walk away, and there are plenty more within easy reach. The town hall is a short distance away, as are several religious sites and the Viharamahadevi Park, which is the largest public park in the Port of Colombo area. When guests can tear themselves away from the hotel, they will easily fill their days exploring the city, seeing its many historical and cultural sites, sampling its rich cuisine and indulging in retail therapy.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
