Owner description: The remarkable seventy five year history of the Colombo Swimming Club (CSC) dates back to the colonial era in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon). During the mid 1930s there was a significant need within the expatriate community in the country to set up a club that would act as a ‘family’ meeting place.

You have to be a member or go with a member to the exclusive club. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and relax. Wonderful breeze and cool place. Good food, friendly service. Did not try out the rooms but heard it’s great too.

The atmosphere at the Colombo Swimming Club is so relaxing, cosy and comfortable that you'd want to come again and again. As most guests do,booking a year in advance esp. during the Christmas-NY break! In fact New Year's eve had the most scintillating DJ,music and food. The trains chugging along behind the Club bring exotic touch to the lawns & verandahs. Unfortunately their swimming pool was being relocated & unoperational but the gym made up for this. Buffets serving specialised menus, breakfast with herbal drink,"Kolakan" recommended, as well as Mincepies and Christmas pudding at their Patisserie.

Finally managed to checkout the place, thanks to our CEO being a member. This is one the most elite clubs in Sri Lanka, which will require you recommendation from club members and a hefty membership payment.
Meeting room was perfect and grand as expected, however, the pool was under renovations and the road constructions being happening on the seaside. I got to know that they even have rooms, if the members wants to stay. However, it was little disappointing to know that we couldn't even purchase a cookie or anything else, unless and otherwise you know the membership number :/ ( because of this, we walked all the way to cinnamon grand to get the cake for our colleague).
They had arrange breakfast, lunch & evening tea with cake for us, which were really good & i personally loved their apple tart and the cheese cake!
So if you know someone who got the CSC membership, make sure to ask them to take you there.. its a really nice place with a great view of indian ocean
