Thank you for coming down to Sri Lanka for your honeymoon. A beautiful Country, scenic and pleasing to the eye – you’re probably feeling like you’ve made a good choice in destination.
In all likelihood, you’ll be travelling around the country, staying at a few hotels, taking in the many different experiences our diverse country has to offer. Of course when touring Sri Lanka and taking in its culture, it’s important to note that our island is not limited to Kandyan dances, mask making and Sigiriya, but we also having a booming commercial Capital that plays host to a multitude of brands already established locally and internationally and, more than anything, a thriving service sector. Honeymooning is great by the beach and in the mountains, but how about that romantic dinner on a rooftop in the heart of a city? A little bit of vacation shopping and catching that new movie together? All this and more, available in Colombo.
You’ve looked around and chosen us, Colombo Courtyard, as your choice of hotel. Are we ecstatic to host you? Of course we are! And we’d like to tell you why we are the perfect choice for your stay in Colombo.
Let’s begin by stating that Colombo Courtyard is South Asia’s first CarbonNeutral® City Hotel, meaning we’re eco friendly, which in turn means that you’ve started your wedded life with no harm done to the environment! We’ve taken our eco friendly concept and used it across our interior design as well. Art enthusiasts will love our sculptures, made from upcycled material, while also noticing that even elements of our furniture are made using scrap metal. If you’d like to take a 15 minute break from your room, a tour can be arranged to show you all the nitty gritties of the Hotel.
Let’s get to that room mentioned. You’ve informed us that it’s your honeymoon and we’ve kept Suite 305 ready for you. 305 is our very special Honeymoon Suite. It features a king sized, four poster bed and all amenities needed, to ensure that you can spend your entire stay with us locked away, should you choose. Another detail that we’d like to point out (and you’d probably notice yourselves upon entering) is that we’ve strategically placed the bathtub in the room itself – meaning you can switch on that 42 inch Smart TV, get out that bottle of wine, and simmer in utmost relaxation. We also have two sinks in the bathroom (nobody wants to fight over how long the other person takes on their honeymoon – that’s for later), and a separate shower as well.
Should you chose to leave the comfort of your abode, the Hotel itself has three dining venues, ranging from fine dining at Scarlet Room, to live entertainment and Cafe food on our Rooftop. We also have Loft Lounge Bar, known for it’s unique cocktails and selection of single malts. Wines can also be chosen from our wine cellar at our Wine Lounge – Grape Expectations.
Nothing spells deep relaxation like S-P-A does, and our Balinese therapists will ensure that you and your partner in crime leave us feeling completely at ease. A dip in our pool, jacuzzi or plunge pool will also definitely help your body relax.
As much as our urban oasis has a lot to offer, so too does our City. Filled with a mix of past and present, Colombo offers historical sites such as the Gangarama Temple and the Old Dutch Hospital, now a shopping complex (two birds) and modern comforts such as malls with international brands like Charles and Keith and Nike. A romantic walk at Victoria Park in the evening is also recommended, while watching the sunset at Galle Face green is quite a sight in itself.
Overall, your stay in Colombo, while potentially short, has the ability to leave a lasting impression. Sri Lanka is a land of mixed culture and beauty. Beauty in its surroundings, beauty in its people. Sri Lankans are known to be very gracious to foreign guests – from Hotels in the city, to the folks in the village – all looking to help you have a great stay. We would like to thank you for choosing Sri Lanka as your honeymoon destination, and Colombo Courtyard as your abode – it’s not just us welcoming you, it’s our island.
