This was a really great stay. The villa was in a secluded area where not to much traffic comes thru. Awesome spot with great staff members.

Even better in person! Recommended
Found this place last minute online. Exceeded our expectations!! We were greeted with popsicles and friendly staff! They accommodated our breakfast and early departure plans for the next morning. The rooms were clean and comfortable. LOVED the sleek design and furnishings. Located walking distance to several attractions.

Great small hotel in Colombo
The Lake Lodge by Taru is a great place to stay in colombo. It is a small-ish boutique hotel sort of centrally located in Colombo. We found this to be a lovely oasis in the middle of hot and chaotic Colombo. The breakfast (especially the Sri Lankan offer) is amazing! We liked it so much that we decided to stay in one night and order from the restaurant. Dinner was also really enjoyable and has been one of our favorite meals while staying in Colombo. The room was very comfortable and my husband and I both had good night's sleep while staying here. The one thing to consider is there is no air conditioning in the common spaces though ceiling fans do help circulate the air. Our room also had a bench to sit on which was really nice, but the lack of air in the common spaces may prevent you from wanting to venture out. Also, the hotel is beautifully decorated and very simple.

Perfect Place to Stay in Colombo
After two weeks of traveling around Sri Lanka, we wrapped up our holiday with three nights at the Lake Lodge and it was the perfect spot to end our trip. The location is very convenient to shopping, good restaurants, the National Museum and other points of interest. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet with a lovely contemporary design. It’s a small hotel that has a very relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts were good and they worked with us to accommodate our dietary restrictions. While we didn’t eat any other meals there, we did order a couple of desserts (the coconut ice cream and the buffalo curd) and both were delicious! We also especially loved the welcome popsicles which were so tasty and a terrific alternative to the typical welcome drink we were served at other places. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Special thanks to Prasad and Sathivel for all their help and recommendations while we were there! We highly recommend this property! It’s a perfect place to stay in Colombo!
