    Hotel description

    Tintagel is a unique and private boutique hotel, situated in the heart of Colombo’s most elite neighbourhood. The first of Paradise Road’s hotels offers 10 individually designed suites with all the modern amenities and services, housed in a wonderful heritage mansion of national importance. This previous home to three of Sri Lanka’s political leaders has been beautifully restored by Shanth Fernando, who is also the proprietor of the famous Paradise Road designer shops and Gallery Café. Set in a walled garden off the street, the 1930s building houses a large lounge resplendent with grand piano, the elaborate Red Bar and an air-conditioned restaurant with an outdoor dining patio that looks onto a small but lush, tropical garden. A swimming pool with small terrace occupies the back courtyard and spa treatments are also available. Paradise Road Tintagel’s ten suite bedrooms are situated on the ground and first floor, the three superior suites offering more space with a lounge area. Each suite has its own individual character, so you may find tiny hand-made mosaic tiles or a statue in the bathroom, Burmese pots next to ornate Chinese cupboards, a balcony or even a plunge pool. Tintagel’s restaurant has Gallery Café pedigree, serving international, Sri Lankan and ‘fusion’ dishes and simple favourites such as the Paradise Club Sandwich and home-made ginger beer.
    NOTE: The hotel does not yet possess a liquor licence. However, this does not put people off as you can bring your own alcohol; the staff will store it at the bar, chill your wine bottles in the coolers and they will mix cocktails and serve your drinks as you require at no corkage charge.
    Colombo’s main attractions are a short drive away and Paradise Road Tintagel offers a complimentary 3-wheeler service from the hotel to Colombo’s Paradise Road shops and Gallery Café.
