Each of the five suites at Clingendael is teeming with Dutch colonial charm. Every room is complete with antique furnishings, a walk in wardrobe, and terraces with views of the world class Victoria Golf course, the imposing Knuckles mountain range and the blossoming hotel gardens.

With Sri Lankan, Oriental and Western dishes available, pick and choose your meal and discuss your culinary preferences with the head chef. Then simply choose your location; larger groups may opt for the grand dining table for a proper banquet, while couples may choose a more secluded setting overlooking the Koi pond.
