Information

Floors:1, Rooms:7, Check-in time:12:00, Check-out time:11:00

The year was 1892 and what was known as “Ceylon” was under British rule. Governor Havelock transferred the title to the land (on which the bungalows are built), by a hand-written deed to the Havelock Building Company on the payment of Rs. 1307/- and a Peppercorn. The present owners purchased the properties in the mid 1980’s and lived there. The Havelock Place Bungalow was first opened to guests in December 1999.

In the city, yet miles away…

If you’ve ever visited the Bungalow, you would have noticed how discreet we have been about our presence. To the casual passer-by, the Bungalow appears to be nothing more than an old colonial home. Only a plaque with the name ‘Havelock Place Bungalow’ engraved on it, indicates that we are open to guests. No wonder the Bungalow continues to be Colombo’s best kept secret!

We are conveniently located so if you are in the mood for a visit to the Museum, Independence Square, or Temples, or would like to go on a shopping spree, you can get to your destination in a matter of minutes.

It’s a jungle. But definitely not the concrete type…

When you enter our gates and walk along the paved pathways, you realize you are in an oasis, away from the bustle of the city.

Trees are an intrinsic part of the Havelock Place Bungalow experience. You can enjoy your breakfast while watching our garden come alive with a variety of birds and butterflies, or relax on a bench and gaze at the stars as night approaches. The surrounding foliage lends a quiet charm to every part of the Bungalow.

Welcome to the Bungalow!

Location

Area Info: Havelock Place, Havelock Road, Havelock Town, Colombo, Sri Lanka, agoda

Address: Havelock Place, Havelock Road, Havelock Town

Area Info

Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, has a long history as a port on ancient east-west trade routes, ruled successively by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. That heritage is reflected in its its architecture, mixing colonial buildings with high-rises and shopping malls. The imposing Colombo National Museum, dedicated to Sri Lankan history, borders sprawling Viharamahadevi Park and its giant Buddha.

Colombo remains both the commercial and financial capital of Sri Lanka even after the administrative capital has been moved to Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte, a suburb east of the city.

Colombo is a huge, sprawling city, which can be visited any time of year due to its tropical climate. The heat is often excruciating, and traffic and pollution intense. These combined and without careful planning Colombo can easily become a nightmarish experience for an average traveler. To avoid this, do not carry heavy luggage, do not plan to walk any significant distances and take measures to deal with the heat and/or rain, such as bringing ice water, sunglasses, plastic slippers, sunblock, umbrella etc.

Restaurants (Eat and Drink)

If the owner is missing, she’s probably cooking for you!

Perhaps you’ve heard of chefs being meticulous in their work and choosy about the quality of the ingredients they use. The Chefs at the Havelock Place Bungalow take this to a new level! It may mean more work but if that’s what it takes to make the perfect Caesar Salad and Lemon Tart, then that’s what they are prepared to do. And they don’t have to look very far for inspiration. It comes from the lady of the house who leads by example, as she beats up her own sorbets and cooks up new ideas for the dessert menu every day.

So when we tell you that you are being served “home-cooked meals”, we mean it literally. Our menu is la carte – Sri Lankan ingredients are adapted to produce ‘fusion’, Italian and Asian cuisine, Our dishes are as varied as your moods, but we try to keep the favorites coming. We strive to keep our restaurant as intimate as possible to make your meal that much more special.

Additional information

Ever heard of the expression, “less is more”? It’s true. We offer you only seven tastefully decorated bedrooms where you will spend some memorable moments and be treated to every luxury. The last thing you hear before you slip under the crisp, white covers will be the sound of crickets outside your window and you will awake the next morning to the chirping of birds.

Each of our bedrooms opens to its own private patio or the garden. If you feel like starting your day with a swim, the pool is only a few feet away from each room.

The rooms are furnished with genuine antique furniture, specially selected for our Bungalow. All our bedrooms are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms where you can enjoy hot water at any time of the day. If you need to use the Internet, wi-fi facilities are available throughout the Bungalow.

Only few people can enjoy the Havelock Place Bungalow experience at a time. You could be one of them.
