The Kingsbury, one of the leading five-star luxury hotels in Colombo, recently announced its partnership with the award-winning CÉ LA VI lifestyle brand to launch its newest restaurant and lounge concept in Colombo, which will bring a new level of sophistication to Colombo dining and nightlife.

“Kingsbury is proud to launch CÉ LA VI Colombo as the city’s very first international luxury lifestyle, dining and entertainment brand, which will transform Colombo’s nightlife landscape. The growth of the tourism sector and the rapid expansion of the city’s high end infrastructure will see growing numbers of discerning leisure and business travelers to Colombo.

“Kingsbury has been routinely curating unique experiences for its guests. CÉ LA VI aims to stimulate the senses and fuel the spirit at their iconic rooftop locations around the world, and the stunning vistas from the Kingsbury rooftop will be the perfect location to embark on an experiential culinary and entertainment adventure. CÉ LA VI Colombo will enhance Colombo’s nightlife by offering world-class entertainment in Sri Lanka,” he said.

Colombo is perceived as a truly cosmopolitan tourist destination and this partnership will offer a sophisticated entertainment and culinary destination in itself. “We are thrilled to embark on CÉ LA VI’s latest destination in Colombo. With the exciting developments in the city, Colombo has positioned itself to be the next city to look out for among the emerging markets. We are delighted to be one of the first international brands to launch in Colombo,” Chief Operations Officer of CÉ LA VI, David Sarner said.

With its upcoming location on the rooftop of the Kingsbury Hotel, CÉ LA VI Colombo is expected to deliver an internationally recognised lifestyle brand to the Sri Lankan market for the first time upon its launch in later this month.

Globally, CÉ LA VI is known for its iconic rooftop locations that command breathtaking views, award-winning innovative Modern Asian cuisine and mixology, and world-class music and entertainment helmed by veteran DJs. CÉ LA VI Colombo is poised to delight guests with a dynamic combination of offerings – CÉ LA VI Restaurant will feature Japanese cuisine along with the brand’s signature Modern Asian flair, and an indoor/outdoor Lounge that will take Colombo’s cuisine, mixology and entertainment to new heights.

“The Hayleys Leisure arm is expanding its footprint into niche categories and we believe this strategic partnership with the globally reputed CÉ LA VI will enhance Kingsbury’s position as the leading city hotel that offers its guests a diverse and delightful experience.

Much like the other international CÉ LA VI locations, Colombo will have its own unique localised persona, with the brand localizing its offering to suit the Sri Lankan market.” Managing Director of the Leisure Sector of Hayleys Group, Lalin Samarawickrama said.
