The Full Experience

An exceptional and unforgettable culinary and cultural evening among the manicured gardens of what was once a Jaffna family’s home for generations.

Now a superb boutique hotel, this heritage house is a sanctuary among the hustle and bustle of Colombo.  Delight in tales and tastes drawn from the family tree from the moment you step inside. Your host will meet you with a local-style cocktail. The candlelit atmosphere prepares you for a unique dinner interwoven with northern charm.  Await an array of pulse-based starters (wadeys) accompanied by coconut sambols. Cleanse your palate with Mulligatawny broth ahead of a smorgasbord of meat, fish and vegetable curries including the famous Jaffna Crab Curry, complemented with rice and pittu.  Conclude with a contemporary take on traditional desserts.
