ZMAX Fairway brings smart luxury to Colombo


Nestled in Colombo Fort, the brand new ZMAX Fairway Colombo hotel lies between the old world charm of the Fort’s colonial past and the vibrant modern business and entertainment hub that surrounds it.

Located close to that icon of colonial architecture turned uber-cool hangout spot, the Dutch Hospital, the ZMAX Fairway Colombo is a hip city hotel for the minimalist, millennial traveller. It offers a seamless and smooth sleep and shower experience in the heart of Colombo. The hotel blends chic design with state-of-the-art technology and seeks to put the guest in charge of the services offered.

Business or leisure travellers visiting Colombo on short stays will find the ZMAX Fairway Colombo to be ideally located for all city-based activities during the daytime. Then, at the end of a sweltering tropical day, the tired traveller has the happy choice of a range of great restaurants and entertainment options such as bars and night clubs, all within walking distance, to relax and recharge in.

The ZMAX Fairway Colombo offers 181 rooms, meeting rooms, high-speed Wi-Fi, a gym, a 24-hour coffee shop and a food court with diverse cuisine and a rooftop bar.

The ZMAX chain has refined its concept of comfort for short stay guests through superb ergonomic features designed to revitalise and invigorate. A warm and welcoming concierge service combines with the best of hi-tech convenience and the latest advances in intelligent building design to offer affordable smart luxury.

The hotel’s IPTV platform for instance, in addition to offering satellite TV preferences based on guest nationality (comprising 22 local and international channels) and video-on-demand, also offers live video streaming of events.

A state-of-the-art energy management system, which includes motion sensor driven temperature controls, not only adds comfort but promises to deliver a major saving by optimising energy usage.

Opening on 15 September 2016, the ZMAX Fairway Colombo is managed by the Plateno Group. With over 20 hotel brands in its global portfolio, the Plateno Group is the seventh largest hotel management company in the world.

“We are very proud to be working with one of Sri Lanka’s premier developers to manage this landmark hotel in the center of Colombo which fills in a key place in our growing domestic network in Sri Lanka and our presence in key capital cities in Asia,” says Plateno International Managing Director Bill Lin.

The ZMAX Fairway Colombo hotel is owned by Fairway Holdings. Chairman of Fairway Holdings, Hemaka de Alwis, stated: “We are pleased to offer high-tech innovation and smart luxury to short stay travellers, all at a very affordable price. We are committed to strengthening Sri Lanka’s position as a business and tourist hub and this city hotel is part of that effort. We are also very happy to have the world-renowned Plateno Group as our partners.”
