BEHOLD AN ISLAND OF BOUNTY – SUNDAY BUSINESS POST IRELAND
I spent two nights in the bustling capital of Colombo on arrival and checked into Maniumpathy, a stylish retreat of just eight rooms that are arranged around a tranquil courtyard and dipping pool. Passed down through generations of the same family, rooms are named after family matriarchs. Built over a century ago, the villa has been impeccably restored and is filled with colonial trappings such as four-poster beds and roll-top baths. It is located in the wealthy Cinnamon Gardens area of the city and is close to galleries, restaurants and popular tourist attractions. It is here, after arriving in off a long-haul flight, that I have my first taste of a fragrant and delicious Sri Lankan curry on the outdoor terrace.
