This home will offer you and your guests a haven in the center of Colombo. Enjoy the peace, tranquillity, and privacy of this home, as well as the luxury and comfort it provides. Get ready to relax in the lap of luxury at Ishq Colombo.

Ishq Colombo was originally the home of Mr. Hanif Yusoof and his family and was created out of passion. The home was designed by Channa Daswette - a renowned architect in the region, protégé of the late and legendary Geoffrey Bawa, and chairperson of the Bawa Trust. This contemporary yet rustic Sri Lankan-style home is the epitome of luxury and offers a welcoming environment for you and your guests. Sleeping up to eight guests, this villa is ideal for a family vacation or a group of friends looking to experience an authentic Sri Lankan experience.

The name, ‘Ishq’ stems from the Arabic term for divine love. This serves as our inspiration to continually bring you experiences that leave lasting impressions. Spend your days lounging around your home in pure serenity.

Ishq Colombo offers four beautiful bedrooms to its guests. Each room has been designed to the highest standard and will be a haven for its guests to which they can return after a day of exploring the town. The rooms at Ishq Colombo are all spacious and offer comfortable king-size beds.

This incredible home pays homage to Sri Lanka’s rich history with the balanced auras of Dutch and English heritage lingering about at every nook and cranny. From the luxurious brushed brass fittings to the elegantly landscaped garden, the fantastic attention to detail is evident in the design of the villa. This is guaranteed to take you back to the old-world charm of the colonial era while our delightfully intricate details offer the most unique and luxurious experience in all of Colombo.

Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka, offers a great, high-energy contrast to Ishq’s serene setting and manicured gardens. Colombo’s origins date back to the 16th century, and its port serves as an important harbor in Asia due to its strategic location in the Indian Ocean. The city’s aging colonial-era buildings combine wonderfully with the rapidly increasing shiny-new high rises.

The villa is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood, offering easy access to the city’s upscale restaurants, lively bars, healthy food cafes, excellent contemporary art galleries, and shopping centers. Within a 5-kilometer radius of the villa are ancient temples, museums, a golf course, the bustling fort, and the vibrant Pettah bazaar.

One of the most enjoyable ways to discover this city is on foot, either by yourself or with a knowledgeable guide. Ishq Colombo is a 40-minute drive (35km) from the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) and a 2-hour drive (120km) from the historic port city of Galle.
