Maniumpathy

Colombo

The name ”Maniumpathy” is a tribute to the town of Manipay, which is the origins of the first owners in the Jaffna family. Maniumpathy is a stunning stately home with a history spanning over a century. It has been renovated and transformed into a boutique hotel with the intention of immersing its guests in an atmosphere reminiscent of the pursuits of the house’s previous inhabitants. As such, it is the perfect opportunity for guests to exploit their curiosity about and also enjoy a unique perspective of past Sri Lankan culture. The colonial structure that existed has been built up over many generations and it gives the hotel a completely unique character. A rather intriguing and personal touch is that each of the rooms is named after a woman from a different generation of the Jaffna family. Maniumpathy strives to offer an array of facilities that make a guest’s stay not only pleasant but unique and memorable. Guests have the opportunity to simply relax and bask in the tropical sun by the pool, then enjoy casual dining at The Nandi terrace restaurant set in the courtyard and overlooking the pool area. For a finer dining experience, guests have the option to treat themselves and take full advantage of The Grand Ebony Room. With the grandeur of a 16-seat dining table, crystal candelabra and dining under the dim light of antique chandeliers, guests truly experience a remarkable and memorable evening within these historic walls.
