    Nice room with great decor. Cafe downstairs is great. Location is in a nice part of town. Our flight arrived late and we had to self check in, which was easy and straight forward thanks to good communication from the host. Would stay here again.

    We had a lovely stay here! The room was very big and clean and the decor is gorgeous. The property is really cool and has a really nice cafe underneath (the food was very good). It was great for our 1 night stay in Colombo, would highly recommend.

Isuru & Shana
Srilax was created by husband and wife duo, Isuru and Shana - a couple who share a love for tasteful design, good vibes and easy living. The pair converted the upper floor of Café Kumbuk into Srilax, a family-friendly, 5-bedroom bed and breakfast with a modern, minimal aesthetic that is inspired by Sri Lankan heritage. Located in the heart of the city yet perfectly tucked away from the hustle and bustle, Srilax offers a stylish and convenient place to stay. Downstairs is Café Kumbuk, one of Colombo’s most loved cafes, with the same easy tropical vibe as Srilax. Co-owned by Shana and her mother, Dinali, Café Kumbuk offers a deliciously curated menu using locally sourced produce and spices, made fresh daily for you to enjoy.
Srilax is located in Colombo, Srilanka. Nestled in the heart of the city in a secluded and calming setting, the allure of Colombo beckons from just a few feet away. You are at once sheltered from the commotion but just within reach of the flurry of activity waiting to be discovered. Downstairs is Café Kumbuk, one of Colombo’s most loved cafes, with the same easy tropical vibe as Srilax. Café Kumbuk offers a deliciously curated menu using locally sourced produce and spices, made fresh daily for you to enjoy. There are plenty of restaurants, cafe's bar's and attractions including museums, art galleries shops, malls and boutiques within just 5- 15 mins walk or by taxi
