Tintagel
Colombo

Top 10s logo 

Tintagel is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Lux City Hotels and our Top 10 Boutique Hotels.

This historical house was home to two prime ministers and a president of Sri Lanka and is located in the leafy and most desirable residential area of Colombo 7. It has been converted to a luxury private hotel by the hugely talented Shanth Fernando, Sri Lanka's equivalent of Terrance Conran who also owns Colombo's most enduringly popular restaurant, The Gallery and the highly influential lifestyle store, Paradise Road.

All 10 suites are indiviually designed and have every modern amenity whilst some have their own private terrace or balcony. The public areas are all immaculately designed and comfortable yet succeeded in retaining a cosy and intimate feel, like a home rather than a hotel.

Carefully restored, the Tintagel is a blinding-white Colonial house once home to the prime minister. The only sounds to break the silence are the surreal whoops of tropical birds and the peaceful putter of tuk-tuks in the surrounding lanes of the smart Cinnamon Gardens district. Taken over by the ‘Conran of Colombo’, Shanth Fernando, the Tintagel’s stamped with his taste, from the framed antique rice sacks upholstery and soft furnishings. There are 10 sophisticated suites, all with high ceilings, airy bathrooms and four-poster beds. Breakfast is taken in the tranquil garden surrounded by living green walls of immense tropical plants, giving you a peaceful start before you head out to explore Colombo.
David Rice, who travelled with Ampersand for the Sunday Times Travel Magazine

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
