The shopping scene is developing at a rapid pace with the addition of many shopping complexes. This is mainly due to an increasing number of consumers in Colombo, which is mirrored in the prevalence of many new luxury apartments in Sri Lanka.

Colombo City Centre (CCC)

This is the newest addition and is also a one-of-a-kind mall that the city has been lacking all these years. It is conveniently located in the lifestyle hub of Slave Island, with Cinnamon Life Colombo, only a couple of kilometres away. The building has 47 storeys out of which 5 are dedicated to retail space and the rest dedicated to hotel rooms and residential apartments.


With many premium and international brands like the Body Shop, MAC Cosmetics and upcoming local designers under one roof, this is the first international shopping mall that has graced the city and has set a standard and trend that will inspire other companies.


This is what really takes the whole experience to another level. With restaurants featuring international cuisine conveniently divided into zones and a sophisticated dessert bar that serves up Master Chef level dishes, it is sure to take your taste buds on a gastronomic adventure.


A mall isn’t complete without a cinema and CCC offers 6 state-of-the-art screens that will be dedicated to screening blockbusters from the world.
