The Ocean Colombo is located along the Marine Drive off Melbourne Avenue in Bambalapitiya. The Hotel stands tall and is regarded as the tallest in the city. No doubt it is as modern as hotels come, and afford one the Luxury of looking over the Indian Ocean.
The Ocean Colombo comprises 43 smartly appointed rooms, stylishly and tastefully designed. In unique style and decor. Also unique about this amazing hotel is the splendid view of Mount Lavinia and the Colombo harbor. The North West Breakwater is clearly visible and is of special significance to me as it was engineered by my late Grandfather Percival Steyn. The rooms are very comfortable, air-conditioned with ensuite areas for relaxation and comfort. The bathrooms have Laundry facilities hair dryer and even toiletries.
Hotel restaurants, bar, coffee shops, café and lounge complete the picture of ease and elegance.
I thought it rather striking that the Ocean Colombo served mainly Sri Lankan food. 24 hour service is also available to casual guests. They appear to be most flexible as a number of services are available on request.
However it must be mentioned that there are restrictions on smoking.
