Boutique hotel in a former family home
- Eight suites
- Terrace restaurant
- Outdoor swimming pool
Maniumpathy is a gorgeous boutique property in the heart of Colombo, a former family home that has been passed down through five generations.
The name Maniumpathy is a tribute to the town of Manipay, the origins of the first owners. The property was purchased by Dr Savaranamuttu Hallock on what was then the Harley Street of Colombo, and where many of the capital’s eminent physicians lived. In fact, one of the hotel’s eight suites is the former surgery of Dr Hallock.
Each suite is named after a woman from the different generations of the family. The largest, Annapuranie, is named in honour of Dr Hallock’s wife and features a lounge and private garden sit-out, while others have balconies that overlook the courtyard and pool.
The history of the property spans over a century and while it offers everything you would expect from a modern luxury hotel, it has lost none of its original charm. The Nandi Terrace Restaurant serves delicious local and international cuisine and there is a swimming pool nestled in the garden as well as wicker chairs to sink into with a drink at the end of the day.
