Colombo, Colombo & the West Coast, Sri Lanka

Proof that the best hotels don’t always have to be the grandest, this 11-room boutique property at the quiet end of Park Street, near the Gangarama Temple,  is our current favourite bolthole in the Sri Lankan capital. Built around the townhouse of a wealthy 19th-century banker who loved to entertain the cream of Ceylonese society, it achieves the perfect balance between period charm and modern luxury. You enter via a splendid pillared portico. In front of it shimmers a garden pool that looks particularly alluring at night.

The suites are the largest in the city and come with their own private, high-walled courtyards, and the restaurant – Rare – among Colombo’s most acclaimed (try the slow-cooked, melt-in-the-mouth lamb shank with puréed peas).
