Tsui Yan Ting Jennifer: is a Hongkong Chinese world renowned artist, a graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing and famous for her beguiling and luxurious flower paintings on traditional calligraphy paper. She is the only female Chinese artist to be given her own exhibition at the United Nations Headquarters, New York in September & October 2007.
A long held dream of Jennifer’s was to visit Sri Lanka to perform some charitable works. In 1996 she came to this ‘pearl’ of an island for the first time. She focused mainly on the Cultural Triangle and in four weeks was totally besotted with this magical isle. While working on her art back in China, she never forgot Sri Lanka & promised to return one day, which she eventually managed in May 2010, bringing her daughter Helen with her. Her idea was to find a suitable location to be able to paint and display her art while encouraging young local artists by conducting ‘Master classes’ and developing their techniques.
This concept soon changed to an even more challenging proposition when Helen suggested that they incorporate the original idea with running a small luxury hotel in Colombo, where she would oversee the running of it. After several months and visits, an exclusive property in Colombo 7 was decided upon and hence, 19 months after the seeds of an idea were sown, the Zylan Luxury Villa has come into fruition.
The cool, elegant property is decorated in charmingly understated soft hues of coffee and cream which accentuates the vibrancy and colours of Jennifer’s art which adorns the walls of the public rooms as well as the eight Deluxe bedrooms and the two luxuriously appointed Executive rooms.
For guests who visit or are fortunate enough to stay at this new ‘flower’ which opened its doors to the first guests on December 28nd 2011, you will find an establishment which reflects its name, Zylan means ‘blossoming’ or ‘blooming’ and this genteel hotel certainly does that. The creativity of the décor, the delicious ‘a la carte’ international menus, the dedicated friendly service and above all else, the comfort of the beautiful bedrooms make this the obvious choice of discerning travellers, both local and foreign, for business or leisure.
An open-air roof garden can be found on the 2nd floor where you can eat or just relax while those feeling a bit more energetic can take advantage of the well equipped gymnasium, maybe indulge in a dip in the swimming pool on the top floor. If you are really lucky you may even hear Helen playing soft classical music, at which she excels, on her grand piano in the main sitting room.
