Colombo holidays

Welcome to Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. This historic city on the western edge of the island became a busy port thanks to its location on the trade routes between East and West.

In recent years, many travellers saw Colombo as a means to an end – somewhere you had to pass through to access the island’s more idyllic delights. But today, it’s a thriving destination in its own right, exploding with things to see and do – a buzzing Asian metropolis with stunning coastal and rural scenery not too far away.

From bungalows in the quieter suburbs to penthouse apartments in the heart of the action, a Holiday Lettings rental is a great way to experience this vibrant and exciting destination.

History

For centuries, the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka off India’s southern tip was a strategic stronghold. It was ruled successively by the Portuguese, Dutch and British, and its architectural patchwork reflects this changing cultural heritage. The city’s skyline today is a fascinating jumble of highrise apartment buildings standing alongside ancient temples, mosques and churches.

Things to see and do

There are landmarks and sights aplenty to admire in Colombo. The perfect place to start is the Colombo National Museum, where extensive collections showcase the city’s history. National treasures including the crown jewels and throne of the Kandyan kings are housed here. The museum is located next to Viharamahadevi Park--with its glinting golden Buddha statue, a stroll around the gardens and water features make for a peaceful afternoon.

Other must-sees in the heart of the city include the decorative red and white Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque and the incredibly detailed Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil temple.

Next on your list should undoubtedly be the striking white dome of the Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara. This Buddhist temple is a tuk-tuk ride out of the city centre and offers dramatic architecture and even more fascinating history.

An escape from the city

If you’re ready for a break from the hectic city streets, then be sure to visit the Talangama wetland reserve. Described as an “urban oasis”, 100 species of birds have made this complex of ponds and wetlands home, along with beautiful butterflies and dragonflies. Another beautiful escape from the hustle of the capital is Mount Lavinia Beach. Located just a few miles up the coast, take a sedate train ride for the best views on the journey.

Book a lodge rental on the beach and you’ll be right next to Sri Lanka’s famously stunning shores, but not too far away from vibrant Colombo, either. The perfect balance.

Getting around

Sri Lanka’s roads are congested and getting around can be time-consuming. For that reason, when in Colombo the best approach is to walk if you possibly can! For short journeys across the city, a tuk-tuk ride is the standard (and in some cases exhilarating!) option.

For journeys further afield, buses are generally to be avoided due to the state of the roads. Trains offer a more gentle experience, but be prepared for longer journey times. If you’re planning to explore the whole island, hiring a car and driver can be relatively affordable.

But one thing’s for sure – however you choose to explore Colombo, you’ll be bowled over by Sri Lanka’s beauty.

Emperor residence, next to Cinnamon Grand hotel ,Sea view over Galle Face green
We loved this appartment

We stayed a week in this appartment and loved it. It is light and airy , well furnished and is exactly as the owners described it. Views were fantastic and there was a real buzz of Colombo. The position is ideal, next to Cinnamon Grand facilities and Mall where there was a very handy Keells supermarket, money exchange etc. You only had to walk to the road to hail a 3 wheeler tuk tuk. The furnishings were comfortable as were the beds.It was great to have outside space. Our friend in the small room would have appreciated the key to the bedroom balcony, this did arrive on the Friday. The pool was great after a hot day and the small gym had good equipment. Security staff were friendly and helpful. The maid was helpful.Wifi very good.see more
Self-catering Tranquility...
excellent in every respect

It is impossible to speak too highly of my stay in this excellent accommodation. The owner provides a great choice of kitchen equipment, a very comfortable double bed, a good tv, an outdoor area that catches the sun but includes areas of shade, double sliding full length windows open onto a rear garden, and all within a quiet quarter of Colombo that is a 200-250 rupee taxi drive from the very centre of the city (ie less than a couple of pounds sterling).see more
Relax in Colombo
Well worth it!

Very nice property, located in a quiet neighbourhood with good connectivity to the City. The traffic to the city is a killer but the beach is just a short Tuk Tuk ride away. Supermarkets are walking distance away and well equipped. The rental is safe and secure. Nothing for kids to do though. Great place to set up base for day trips around Sri Lanka. Nice kitchen with most kitchen equipment for a quick home cooked meal. Not many restaurants though.see more
Aranga-la family bungalow in Colombo Sri Lanka
Unforgettable memories !!!

The service was excellent from the beginning until the end. When we arrived we were welcomed with coconuts by the manager "Raja" and the gardener "Nihal". During our stay, we shared with them and their family unforgettable moments. We miss them! The house is large and spacious, able to accommodate a large families (there are three bedrooms), comfortable and very nicely decorated. There is a large garden which is a paradise for the animals. Every mornings we had breakfast with monkeys, it was fabulous! The accommodation is well served by public transport : you can reach Colombo, Galle, the beaches very easily. Raja and Nihal are at your disposal to make your nicest stay possible! It is definitely the best place to discover the Sri Lankans people's way of life!see more
Lavnia Lodge @ 27Deseram Rd
Spacious apartment with excellent service.

Our first stay in Sri Lanka and after traveling around for 2 months this apartment was certainly among the top experiences seeing a lot of different standards in this price range. The landlord was always taking care of us and made sure we had a good stay. … see more
