If you’re looking for a fancy, hip way to spend your weekend, Colombo won’t disappoint. Anyone who has ever been to Colombo would agree that it’s one of the liveliest and most buzzing parts of Sri Lanka. With life in every corner, there’s a bunch of exciting ways to spend your time. What’s more, our hotel in Kotahena, is also a short distance away and a great place to crash for the night after some adventure.

So here’s a run down of how to spend a hip weekend in Colombo:

Enjoy a Fun Picnic in the Park

Independence Square is the perfect place to kick-start your weekend and bask in the Sri Lankan sun. Pack a picnic mat and put on your #OOTD for a fun afternoon in the scenic backdrop of this architectural marvel. As the evening sets in, walk around the area and stop for evening high tea at one of the upmarket delis or cafes nearby. You’re likely to find an interesting mix of high-end restaurants, cafes and shopping options.

Shop Till You Drop

Start your Sunday on an indulgent note at the Majestic City Mall in Bambalapitiya, along the Galle Road. This multi-storey mall is packed with a fancy movie theatre called ‘Majestic’ and an expansive food court offering the best of local and international cuisine. The buzzing centre is home to a whole lot of stores that will definitely be hard to resist. After you’re done splurging, stroll back to Yoho Westwood Residence, a cozy hotel in Colombo 04 to drop off your bags and get some rest.

Sip a Few Cocktails (and then some more)

What’s a weekend without a few cocktails? Dial up the fancy at Honey Beach Club in The Kingsbury Hotel. Located in the heart of Colombo, this beautiful property by the poolside gives off chill beach vibes, with a wide array of classy cocktails, delicious food, shisha and peppy music to tap your feet. Not to mention, the comfy beanbags and vibrant beach umbrellas. Don’t forget to enjoy the best of happy hours between 5:30 and 7:30pm. 

For other equally worthy Instagram photos, head to ON14 at Ozo Colombo, Mövenpick Colombo and Sky Lounge at the Kingsbury. Each of these should definitely be included on your list of must-visit places for a hip weekend in the city.

Happy Weekending!
