A Home-away Home”
a really enthralling experience. we stayed for one night and enjoyed all moments out there. got a good deal from agoda. 1) villa : the ambiance was amazing. it was bit difficult to find out the hotel. it is opposite to south african embassy. but, once you are there, you will never feel any hassles of a busy town. a peaceful interlude can be found at zylan from the cacophony of town. 2) staff : though being to many *hotels, i haven't seen so dedicated, sincere and friendly folks.. all were very attendive, cooperative and helpful, by all means. the front office lead by mr. kapil, gave out an outstanding performance. as we were first to colombo, they were helping out to cut the unnecessary costs on transportantion, tour packages and getting the right vegetarian food. they took all efforts to make our stay a memorable one. 3) bedroom : large rooms with high roof. curtains were not heavy enough to block sun rays. 4) bathroom : bathroom is spacious and clean with separate private jacuzzi and bathing area. exhaust system (other than opening the windows) and the water outflow from the bathing area to be rectified. 5) mini swimming pool on roof top : luckily, not many guests were checked in during our stay and we had a good swimming session in a private mood. the staff did their best to maintain our privacy. nicely relaxed. 6)food : the ala-carte breakfast was also good. the food was served to the room, nicely decorated/dressed.. 7)shopping : odel mall is nearby. overall, it was a wonderful luxurious stay at zylan luxury villa.
Lovely villa with Sri Lankan decor, good food & friendly staff”
As a single women travelling alone, when Zylan luxury villa had a vacancy, I swiftly cancelled my high rise hotel at the beach! I was welcomed by friendly, happy staff and the villa didn’t disappoint! The decor was artistic & interesting with many courtyards & nooks to relax in to read a book. There was a small pool on the roof! The room was an average size but very functional and the en-suite very clean & new! It was located in the embassy region and was still with in a 2 km walking distance to tourist places, but easy to catch a tuk tuk or Uber to the city! The villa has a cafe by day and the Zen Japanese restaurant on the roof top with a bar was a bonus with delicious food and there were other restaurants close by. I would recommend this villa highly for tourists, single travellers or the business executive on a work trip!
Very attentive staff”
We had a lovely stay at the Zylan Luxury Villa. I feel like we were a bit out from the shopping we wanted to do (Dutch Hospital in Colombo 1 and Barefoot in Colombo 3), but the tuk-tuk one way to both places were around 200-250LKR. Nothing to do around the hotel, but we liked it because we felt like we were in a safe neighborhood and it was quiet. We had a nice balcony attached to our room and the bed was very comfy. I think the best thing about the hotel was the staff. They were so attentive and helpful.
Beautiful boutique gem in the heart of Colombo”
Chose Zylan as our base for the first part of our Colombo stay. Set in the quiet residential area of Cinnamon Gdns, this villa is well designed to be airy and spacious. When inside, you forget you are in Colombo!! Our room was the executive with jacuzzi. It was very large with a seating area with widescreen tv, kingsize bed, changing area with plenty of space for shoes/clothes and a vast bathroom (twin washbasin, stonewalled shower with rain effect shower head, oh and the jacuzzi). Free wifi was very useful to catch up with goings on at home. We sampled the Sri Lankan breakfast on our first morning. It was nice, but very very spicy. Couldn't feel our mouths for some time. European style breakfasts sufficed for the rest of our stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Colombo.
Awesome stay - best spot in Colombo!”
My wife and I stayed in a horrible hotel in Colombo 1 Hotel Grand Oriental, thinking that it would be a nice historical hotel near the main shopping sites, we were wrong. We moved to Zylan Villas and discovered a world of difference. It's easy to see why every guest at Zylan feels compelled to write gushing notes of praises in the hotel guest book, it's full of highly positive comments. The Villa is a beautifully designed boutique hotel with only 10 rooms but the decor and room with its quality amenities make our stay a comfortable, happy respite. The staff are obviously very well trained and ever so attentive and helpful. Plenty of initiative, and the best service you'll have in Colombo. Perfect stay. We will return!
Zylan Villa is located in the Cinnamon Gardens area of Colombo. Its not right in the heart of the action but a pretty suburb all the same and only a very short tuk tuk ride (its certainly do-able on foot too). Its stylishly decorated with lovely spacious rooms. It has a rooftop bar and pool. Although the pool probably isn't the prettiest pool you'll ever likely to swim in, its most welcome after a day trudging around the city.The breakfast was adequate and the staff were great. The boys on the desk were really friendly and helpful (they organised a train for us to Kandy). Would definitely stay here again!
Comfortable And Well Appointed Room”
I found Zylan well located to walk to Independance Square, Odels and that part of Colombo. Normally we stay close to Galle Face Green, so as a change of location this was perfect. The room was quiet, had everything we needed and the Sri Lankan breakfast delicious. The decor was modern with polished cement floors and decorated with timber features and antiques. The roof pool is not big, but perfect to cool off and sun bake. The staff were all polite, friendly and helpful. The hotel had no liquor licence, which is unfortunate as a cool drink on the roof terrace would have been nice, however the staff did offer to go out and buy drinks for us. If you do take advantage of the Spa Service, I had a fantastic massage, very well qualified and professional massage, just check your account I booked a 60min massage but was charged a 90min massage. Otherwise our stay was perfect and I would recommend Zylan Villas to stay in.
Gorgeous boutique hotel”
Zylan Luxury Villas are amazing - I stayed there for one night in early December. I was talking to the breakfast staff about the gorgeous design of the hotel and they said that the architect who designed the Sri Lankan Parliament House had designed Zylan. It is super-quiet but only a $5 cab fare to the beach and beach night-markets. Absolutely gorgeous boutique, Asian-style hotel, lovely staff and awesome location.
Great spot to stay”
A lovely boutique hotel with a perfect service. It's located in a quiet and beuatiful area of Colombo. The place to stay in Colombo: the Zylan Luxury Villa! I've booked already twice and be sure: my next booking is this hotel again.
A peaceful spot in hectic Colombo”
Zylan Luxury Villa is a quiet, stylish spot in Colombo - it's in the Embassy district of Colombo. You do need to get a tuk tuk to the main attractions in the city but it's not far and the villa offered a calming spot away from the traffic. The staff were very attentive and helpful - always happy to ring a tuk tuk for us etc. To be recommended.
Luxury Villa in tranquil garden setting”
Very comfortable stay in room 202 in January 2016. Had the feel of staying in a luxury villa surrounded by tranquil garden setting. Room is very large with separate sitting area, walk in wardrobe, separate shower and bath. Staff are most helpful. good breakfast, in house Japanese restaurant food on roof top is very good. Walking distance to a very good shopping mall as well. Local friends told us this villa is situated in an exclusive street of Colombo. We were impressed and it lived up to our expectation of a luxury boutique hotel.
3rd stay at Zylan”
This was our 3rd stay at Zylan and will not be our last! We enjoy the comfort and luxury of this lovely, beautifully decorated small hotel(10 good sized rooms) with it's helpful friendly staff. Zylan is situated in the quiet Colombo 7 district, close to the golf club and well situated for most places of interested. ZEN a super Japanese restaurant is on the roof open to all. There is no alcohol due to hotel's situation close to a school (local law) but no objections to you bringing in your own. WE always enjoy staying in Zylan and we will be back again next year.
Excellent Boutique Hotel”
I stayed 3nights at Zylan Luxury Villa. It was an excellent choice... a little oasis of quietness in the busy Colombo. It is located in the street with 3 embassies, so you feel safe here. It is about 400 rupies to go to the old Dutch Hospital. There is also Odel - a nice shopping mall and White Spa Ceylon nearby- superb place to relax with a massage after a busy day of walking. :-)
Beautiful choice in Colombo”
Zylan is a great choice in Colombo... well located, and very well designed. This is a luxury hotel that has retained the feel of a private villa. The service has been excellent during each of my last stays. The breakfasts are some of the best that you will find in any Colombo hotel.
Good hotel, excellent internet, a little expensive”
All hotels in Sri Lanka seem to be unreasonably expensive. I would therefore normally expect a room of the quality at Zylan to be about 2/3 of the price. But that being said, Sri Lanka is unreasonably expensive, so I can't really hold that against Zylan alone. The hotel is really well designed, has excellent staff and good service. The rooms are big, comfortable, with good beds and a desk if you need to work. The television has lots of international channels, and the wifi is the best and fastest I've experienced in Sri Lanka. The showers are also good, as is the room service. The food in general is good, if a little on the expensive side. The breakfast included in my room price was excellent. All in all, if you want to stay comfortably near the center of Colombo, Zylan is an excellent choice.
We had a great stay at the Zylan Luxury Villa. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and staff were very helpful and friendly and also accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was great and the location was fantastic. Will be visiting again.
Very good hotell”
If you are in Colombo, Zylan is a very good hotel i a quiet area (Cinnamon gardens). Stylish, clean, friendly staff. We can definitely recommend this hotel.
Intimate ambience and attentive service. ”
After an 8 night stay at Zylan I must say that the HOtel is well located and Positioned within a salubrious area of Colombo. The limited number of 10 rooms allow an intimate ambience and guests can truly have a quiet and restful holiday . The members of the hotel staff are polite engaging and attentive. The breakfast spread is wide and varied and the beverages fruit juices and other breakfast food are well prepared and served hot. The range from the bakery is also good. There is also a sense of safety and security even though there are no security guards in sight. Overall a pleasant stay and money for value.
Beautiful colonial oasis”
We had a few nights at Zylan with family and had the loveliest most relaxing time. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. The communal spaces like the lounge and dining room are so relaxing and beautifully decorated - you feel like you are in your own home! The rooms are great - although the lowest priced room was quite small, I would recommend upgrading. The location is on a very quiet street within walking distance to restaurants etc. The breakfast was one of the BEST we had in colombo.
Nice spacious clean villa”
Cozy, comfortable and spacious accommodation in this 10-room villa at Colombo 7 residential district, Zylan is one to be staying at. Simple, beautiful, and peaceful. I took the 60 m2 Executive Room with Jacuzzi and it was so comfortable. Japanese restaurant Zen on top is decent. The only downside is the breakfast choice; it only serves English breakfast which gets really boring especially when staying long. Sri Lankan breakfast is a possibility but has to be requested in advance. Overall, Zylan is one of good boutique hotels pick while in Colombo. Recommended.
