Recognised as a top performing boutique hotel as reviewed by travellers on the world’s largest travel site



Colombo Courtyard has received a 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honourees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

Colombo Courtyard, nestled in the heart of the city is an urban boutique hotel which perfectly captures a fusion of contemporary style with the essence of environmental design. Art and elements with the extensive use of recycled material, dashes of vivid colour and a sense of space are all thrown together to create a striking impact. With open courtyards and water bodies, the hotel boasts 32 rooms including 15 suites each uniquely designed, Scarlet Room (Italian Restaurant) an all-day restaurant, Cloud Café a rooftop restaurant to dine in the sky, an industrial themed Loft Lounge Bar, a wine cellar, a library and meeting room, Jacuzzi, plunge pool, Amber Spa and Gymnasium. It is still the artistic rustic elements that are most attention grabbing from many other aspects of this hotel.

Moreover Colombo Courtyard was recertified still as the first CarbonNeutral city hotel in South Asia after measuring its Carbon Footprint for the second time in accordance with the internationally recognised GHG protocol published by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. 

 “TripAdvisor is pleased to honour exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said TripAdvisor for Business President Marc Charron. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers. We want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
