Description - Apartment

Zak Residences are studio apartments in the popular Colombo 2 area offering convenience with the comforts of a second home at a very reasonable rate. This is the ideal place for people on a budget since the apartment is within walking distance to most of Colombo's tourist attractions.

Furnished with your needs in mind, the apartments offer a range of modern amenities and services designed to provide comfort and convenience. The interior is spacious and each apartment can accommodate a group of up to 4 people.

Since I have been a traveler from the age of 18 I have used all my experience and made the apartments to feel like your second home. I am always available to help my guests and to guide them if needed. All information is provided free.

I am at the apartment premises from 9 am to 8 pm from Monday to Saturday. However, if guests' flights are scheduled to arrive outside these times I ensure that I am personally present to hand over the keys. No extra fees are charged but I need to be informed about the likely time of arrival at the time of booking. Guests can also contact me 24/7 via the 'phone.

The Beira Lake is just a five minutes walk from the apartments and is a great place to relax in the evening. At the center of the Beira Lake is a Buddhist shrine belonging to the famous Gangaramaya Temple. The main temple is situated just across the lake, on the opposite side of the road. There is also another island on the lake designed for relaxation which is accessible by a bridge. If you wish, you can even take a trip around the lake in a paddle boat.
