The Mövenpick Hotel Colombo, while primarily the city’s go-to for business travellers, offers holidaymakers to the Sri Lankan capital the world-class level of service – not to mention a selection of eateries – that are the talk of the town.
This five-star urban property – the Mövenpick Hotel Colombo – from the Accor family of hotels is located in right bang smack in the city centre, with some of the capital’s main sights just a short stroll away.
First and foremost, it’s very much a business-driven property and host to many conferences, you’re more likely to rub shoulders with the Sri Lankan business-folk rather than other travellers. But although it lacks the relaxed, local charm offered by the country’s out-of-city resorts or some other more intimate options in Colombo, the hotel provides visitors with an international standard of hospitality that is difficult to fault.
The towering landmark over 24 floors offers contemporary luxury, rooms are stereotypical to corporate hotels, but their floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views. In fact all parts of the hotel afford guests with the view, including the property’s well-equipped gym and private lounge for Mövenpick’s and Accor loyalty customers.
Food and beverage at the Mövenpick Hotel Colombo are renowned. There is a Japanese grill, a French history and an all-day dining option, where the buffet is a business-meeting staple, as is the extensive global menu with something for all tastes. We recommend sundowners at Vista, the hotel’s rooftop bar. Make sure to book ahead.

|For a slice of real Colombo, exit the hotel and street level and cross over to the Kollupitiya Market (often referred to as Colpetty Market). It’s a bustling food market that’s a world away from your lofty digs at the hotel and will delight the foodie in you.|
