आत्मन् : The substance of everything
The Aathma Colombo House is a family home transformed into an eclectic boutique hotel with 5 rooms & suites, tropical garden and a 20m swimming pool.
The House rests on a private peninsula by the banks of the historic Diyawanna Lake in Colombo’s thriving municipal capital, and it’s location enables fast access to both the International Airport and Southern Expressway.
The 1000m2 property is a stone’s throw from the Beddagana bird sanctuary and the surrounding areas are well-populated with aquatic birds such as the Spot-billed Pelican and the White-throated Kingfisher.
The garden itself is home to other local wildlife such us Humming Birds, Parrots and Squirrels; while Monkeys can be seen playing from across the lake. On occasion you can glimpse wandering Tortoises or Hawk-Eagles circling the treetops above.
Dushy Kumar, the colourful matriarch of our family, carefully designed the architecture and furniture you see today. Each piece is created by local artists and tradesman; fusing antique heirlooms with modern techniques. The result is a host of authentic, eclectic pieces true to her vibrant spirit and mixed heritage. The cartwheels and mandalas are a recurrent theme around the house and pay homage to our Equestrian Nobleman ancestors in pre-colonial South India.
We’d be delighted to host you at Aathma Colombo House and help make your stay in Sri Lanka the trip of a lifetime!
