Afternoon Tea in the Edward Lear Drawing Room
One of our favourite places is in the Edward Lear Drawing Room. Ceylon Tea is not just a beverage. It’s a tradition and a ritual at OTP. That’s why we’ve introduced afternoon tea with a selection of the finest Ceylon teas accompanied by sweet and savoury nibbles. Named after the poet who wrote Owl and the Pussycat, the Edward Lear Drawing Room is the perfect place to relax, have a quiet conversation, or lounge with a book from our hand-picked collection.
Evening Antipasti at Botanik
Enjoy a complimentary glass of prosecco along with delicious canapés, against the canvas of the sky painted in vivid colours by the Sri Lankan sun setting over the Indian Ocean. The sound of the waves against the shore, a cool evening breeze and a drink in hand, sets the mood for an evening to remember.
Market Walks & Cooking Workshops With The Chefs At Botanik
Food is central to the OTP experience. Picking out local ingredients from the fresh markets in our neighbourhood is a very pleasurable experience. Grab a basket and head out on a shopping trip with our chefs! Sri Lankan ingredients are so unusual. From feathery winged beans to a local breed of pennywort, ocean-fresh grouper to king crabs, every season produces something special. Come home to OTP’s fantastic kitchen, Botanik, and learn how to whip up a hearty, yet healthy, Sri Lankan meal! Whether it’s a creamy cashew chicken or piquant Jaffna lamb, a nutritious coconut dhal curry or pol toffees, there’s a whole repertoire of dishes for you to feast on.
Our Colombo Residence
Guests who are resident at OTP, have the added advantage of our Colombo Residence. Whether you’re flying in or out in the evening and would rather enjoy a delicious meal and a rest en route to or from OTP, or if you simply want to explore the Sri Lankan capital for a day or two before or after your visit to OTP, our centrally located residence is the ideal base – a home away from home. Three beautifully appointed suites offer you everything you need, in a separate wing of a private home. Simple yet elegant, secure and serene, our Colombo Residence provides guests at OTP with an added advantage.
Complimentary Yoga overlooking the Indian Ocean
A place with an ambience like OTP’s inspires you to stretch yourself – mind, body and soul. That’s why so many of our guests opt for OTP’s morning yoga sessions on the open deck. Stretch gently with the sea breeze, as the Sri Lankan sun warms your face, and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore lulls you int a meditative mood. Our yoga sessions are guided by a certified local instructor, and leave you feeling revitalised, with an open mind and open heart.
Private Beach Picnics & Candle-lit Dinners
What could be more romantic than a picnic hamper packed with delicious nibbles, a bottle of vino, and a delightful day on a private beach – just the two of you? Layout underneath the fronds of a coconut tree, while the sea laps gently at your toes. Or how about a delightful dinner, artfully prepared with the finest ingredients by our chefs, customized to suit your tastes with a glass of bubbly, beneath the stars? The scent of frangipani and jasmine wafts through the air while the moon shines on the water… now that’s what we call island idyllic.
