Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic hotel that blends a contemporary deigner style with the charms of a magnificent 200 year old Moorish mansion. Built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, the mansion is adorned with acres of Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, molded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and is one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this hotel involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.

Stylish and spacious, the air-conditioned suites at Casa Colombo feature tall ceilings and an iPod filled with movies. Each comes with a Nakamitchi flat-screen TV, DVD player and a minibar.
