Luxury boutique hotels could have been invented in Sri Lanka in colonial days when planters built bungalows with guest rooms and a retinue of servants to look after their visitors. Today many of those bungalows have been restored or converted as luxury boutique hotel properties devoted to a handful of guests seeking holiday exclusivity in unusual locations, with fine food and caring attention.
Sri Lanka’s boutique hotel properties are found in secluded places throughout the island, especially in the interior where they are havens of luxury in scenic surroundings. Walkers Tours is familiar with all the privately-run luxury boutique hotels, both small and large, available for tourists who want a personalised holiday where they are considered as welcome, discerning guests and not as a room number. There are boutique hotels in Colombo too, some in converted Edwardian buildings providing the ultimate in sophisticated comfort, fine dining and glamour.
