One of Sri Lanka’s landmark city hotels The Kingsbury, is home to exquisite cuisine, luxurious rooms and unparalleled service standards. The hotel reintroduced their services in December 2019 with an exciting new transformation with the refurbishment and rebranding of five restaurants, each of which takes guests on gastronomic journeys with innovative dining propositions and indulgent gourmet experiences. Complimenting this transformation, service benchmarks have been set, as The Kingsbury continually aspires to raise the bar in service excellence.
The property is a haven for business travelers due to its convenient location, plentiful rooms for business meetings and conferences and ease of access to business lunches to facilitate quick meetings. Leisure travelers prefer the hotel due to its distance from the airport (approx. 33km) and proximity to popular tourist attractions such as the Dutch Hospital Precinct, the bustling World Trade Centre, the upcoming Colombo Harbour and the iconic Galle face promenade.
The Kingsbury offers an extensive range of cuisine which will cater to even the most discerning palate.
