Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts has opened a new hotel in Colombo.

The 219-room Mövenpick Hotel Colombo is the first international five-star property to open in the city in 25 years, housed in a modern, diamond-shaped building featuring hanging gardens with more than 14,000 plants.

Located in the Sri Lankan capital’s business district, the hotel has seven dining outlets including Colombo’s first in-hotel French restaurant, a Japanese restaurant and an all-day dining option plus a number of lounges and bars.

The hotel’s rooms range in size from 33 sqm to 51 sqm, and in addition to three suite categories, boasts the largest executive lounge and rooms in the city. Features include floor-to-ceiling windows, a king-size bed, work desk, ironing facilities and a coffee/tea maker.

Event space includes five meeting rooms equipped with audio-visual technology, two banqueting venues for up to 180 people, a boardroom and an outdoor terrace. Located on the 23rd and 24th floors, the hotel has a gym, spa, nail salon and outdoor infinity pool.

The Swiss hotel group has recently moved into Bali, Indonesia, with plans to expand into Thailand with three new properties by 2017.
