Super-luxury hotel ‘ITC Ratnadipa Colombo’ declared open

President Ranil Wickremesinghe declared open the super-luxury hotel ‘ITC Ratnadipa Colombo’ which boasts Sri Lanka’s first ever sky bridge ‘AHASA ONE’ connecting two towers at a height of 100m above the ground.

ITC’s Hotel Group, one of India’s leading luxury hotel chains, is reported to have invested close to INR 3,000 crore in the luxury Sri Lankan property, which is being set up under a subsidiary WelcomHotels Lanka. The luxury hotel — ITC Ratnadipa in Colombo — reportedly features about 352 rooms.

The USD 500 million + ITC development, comprising the Sapphire Residences and super-luxury hotel ITC Ratnadipa, occupies pride of place at the centre of Colombo’s most prestigious ocean front location.

Overlooking the Galle Face and the Indian Ocean on one side and the Beira Lake on the other, this landmark is already redefining the city’s skyline.

With its distinctive architecture and the eye-catching engineering marvel, the AHASA ONE Sky Bridge, a one-of-a-kind structure in South Asia, installed approximately 100 meters in the air to connect the two towers, this development is poised to become a globally recognized landmark for the city, if not the entire country.

Sapphire Residences comprises interiors exquisitely curated in four distinctive styles by YOO Inspired by Starck. Aptly named ‘Sky Mansions’, at over double the size of other luxury apartments in Colombo, these expansive lateral homes average around 5,500 sq. ft., providing ample space for a whole family – including staff – to enjoy spacious and unhindered comfort.  In addition, there are four penthouses, each covering over 9,300 sq. ft. each and two palatial Master Penthouses spanning a remarkable 19,000 sq. ft each across a single floor.

Every Sky Mansion incorporates a state-of-the-art home automation solution that includes hands-free voice control and mobile devices, empowering residents with complete control of their environment and the ability to avail services on demand from the adjacent Luxury hotel ITC Ratnadipa as well.

Complementing the luxury lifestyle, the over 40,000 sq. ft. of premium amenities including the exclusive private Residents’ Club, swimming pools, private cinema, outdoor amphitheatre, full-service spa (with steam, sauna and treatment rooms), gymnasium and fitness centre, yoga room, indoor squash court and multi-purpose sports court etc. These have been carefully designed to appeal to an elite group of like-minded individuals who appreciate the finest things in life.
