Lake Lodge


Lake Lodge, Colombo, one of the city's first accredited hotels, was transformed into a stunning city break haven in 2009. Keen to respect the rich heritage of a building which had been in her family for four decades, Nayantara 'Taru' Fonseka embarked on a project which would crystallize into the gold standard for 'luxury-for-less' hotels in Colombo, Sri Lanka. With her creative emphasis on lines, light, and space, Taru's brainchild is the template for contemporary elegance and excellence. It is testament to the tranquility of this accommodation in Colombo that you could easily forget just how close you are to all the amenities that any thriving city has to offer. With the capital's restaurants, business district and other attractions only moments away, this exquisite hideaway proves that having the best of both worlds is certainly possible.


Find ultimate relaxation when you return to this quiet retreat at the end of a busy day in the city. This Colombo budget hotel effortlessly blends style, elegance, and tradition with comfort, warmth and intimacy. It is the epitome of understated charm tucked away in the lively city centre.


There is no shortage of choice at this hotel in Colombo. The signature Taru Villa's breakfast spread is fuel for the day aplenty, where you can choose from a selection of traditional Sri Lankan dishes to a Continental breakfast and everything in between. The lunch and dinner á la carte options will offer you many of the usual suspects such as crisp salads, warm soups, light wraps and hearty burgers, as well as the more elaborate and adventurous menu highlights, such as the grilled fish of the day or the famous Sri Lankan rice and curry. In its design and execution, Taru Villas - Lake Lodge embodies the personal and intimate touch that is characteristic of a true boutique bed and breakfast. Always living up to its reputation for personalized service, the chef will only be too keen to adjust meals according to your preference and dietary requirements, with a little notice.

We also invite you to try one of our unique cocktails or healthy smoothies on the terrace while you watch the sun set over the lake. There are far tougher ways to end a busy day.
