The Full Experience
An exceptional and unforgettable culinary and cultural evening among the manicured gardens of what was once a Jaffna family’s home for generations.
Now a superb boutique hotel, the manor is a sanctuary among the hustle and bustle of Colombo. Delight in tales and tastes drawn from the family tree from the moment you step inside. Your host will meet you with a local-style cocktail. The candlelit atmosphere prepares you for a unique dinner interwoven with northern charm. Await an array of pulse-based starters (wadeys) accompanied by coconut sambols. Cleanse your palate with Mulligatawny broth ahead of a smorgasbord of meat, fish and vegetable curries including the famous Jaffna Crab Curry, complemented with rice and pittu. Conclude with a contemporary take on traditional desserts.
Hosted by Raconteur
Born and bred in Colombo, your host began developing his walk in the city to share his passion for developing authentic and soulful experiences after working for a jungle eco resort in Yala. With a passion for giving back to the community and travel, when not curating experiences for visitors he volunteers at the National Institute of Mental Health conducting art therapy, or hops on his motorbike to a secluded spot to camp and read.
