ONYX Hospitality Group will launch a brand-new Amari hotel in the Sri Lankan capital city of Colombo.

Upon completion in mid-2019, the 24-storey property will offer 180 rooms and suites along with features including the street food, market-style Ahara Gourmet Gallery, Breeze Spa and Voyager Lounge.

Amari Colombo will be built in the Kollupitiya commercial district of the capital, close to the official residence of the Prime Minister, the US Embassy and the Kollupitiya bus and train stations.

Other nearby attractions include the National Museum of Colombo, Gangaramaya Temple and Park, a wide range of shops and restaurants, and Kollupitiya Market, one of the city’s most vibrant trading hubs. 

It has been a year of expansion for Amari, with the brand being launched in new locations including Sri Lanka, Malaysia and China. Amari Colombo will be the second Amari-branded hotel in Sri Lanka, and will complement the recently launched Amari Galle, located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka near the historic Galle Fort.
