An urban oasis founded by friends, Hotel Brummel is a mishmash of inspiration. Its aesthetic is dominated by references to the founders' numerous travels to Sri Lanka and their passion for Geoffrey Bawa's tropical modernism (think wide-open spaces and a focus on local resources). Once here, enjoy a leisurely meal, a swim, a drink and a sauna or just retreat to your room.
