Food, drink and entertainment

Sky Lounge

Sky Lounge

Sitting atop the royal splendour of The Kingsbury with its stately grandeur, is an unexpected jewel in its crown. The Sky Lounge, Colombos hippest bar. Its post-modern design only complements the eclectic entertainment that is an experience in itself.

The Kings - Lobby Bar

The Kings - Lobby Bar

The Kings lobby bar is located on the ground floor and is stylishly interwoven with the hotel's grand lobby.For sheer comfort, for conversations, for the most delicious impromptu nourishment of the pub grub kind, for diverse music and for lounging with or without an agenda, we do believe there a few spots more welcoming than this one.

The Score - Al Fresco Bar

The Score - Al Fresco Bar

The sports bar aptly named "The Score" is Colombo city's only Al Fresco bar which allows patrons to indulge in an atmospheric outdoor setting. The bar is located on the beautiful al fresco deck that overlooks the picturesque Indian Ocean - a popular venue amongst Sri Lankans and expatriates alike to immerse themselves in the beauty of the setting sun. But the view is not the only highlight at "The Score", instead look forward to fantastic mixes, artistic barmenship and cocktails that are cataclysmic.

Pool Cafe

Pool Cafe

Outdoor, casual and wonderfully atmospheric. That is the promise of the Pool Caf, set by the hotel's magnificent outdoor pool.

Not worth the money
Good- gym,pool and the bed Bad- everything else When a cup of tea cost 575 rs and nothing to show for it you know the place is bad. Everything is extremely expensive in this place so if you stay don't buy anything. Go outside and you can find everything you need for very good price. Buffet is a rip off. Don't fool by fresh oj, they don't have any. They use a local blend called darling as a substitute. No flavor at all. The only item is ok is the fish that they grill for u. Do your research and find a better place. There are so many hotels in walking distance

Amazing food and pool
Staff amazing here! I got an upgrade to 9th floor clubroom. Food great as well, massive buffee! The gym is alright, has most needed. The pool is great! The skybar amazing view in daytime and night. Everything was good but the elevator was broken for days. It took FOREVER to get anywhere. Not sure how it could break time after time? Soon new international hotels will open in Colombo and then I don't this this place will be so packed anymore.

Service needs Improvement.
The service offered by staff needs to be vastly improved. One gets the impression that the success the hotel enjoys at its outlets is compromising on its customer services. Tried the hotel for the first time and the overall experience was below expectations.
