About Prianga Pieris

My wife and I are singers - born in Sri Lanka and now living in New York City. We own this apartment and manage it as well. Our son, Dinuke, is based in Sri Lanka and takes care of all the day to day activities regarding the apartment as well as welcome the guest/s when they arrive. We both grew up in Sri Lanka, went to school, still have our respective families living there and we visit our homeland often. Eventually we hope to retire back home.

We first came over with our music and lived in London, England (where Dinuke was born). Having performed in various venues in England and Scotland we moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. There we met Harry Belafonte who invited us to come to New York City. Ever since we have been singing and acting here in the US and continue to do so.

Prianga Pieris purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Prianga Pieris chose Kollupitiya

We bought this property, or rather Dinuke, because of its central location. He had researched many locations and many apartment buildings and felt that the Crescat Residencies was unique - the location, the amenities, the proximity to Embassies, the Fort area, the Galle Face Green, beaches, markets, shops, malls, transport facilities, etc., and above all the solid structure of the building itself. The rooms are large and the ceilings high.

Very spacious and great view!

  • 5 of 5

We were met by the friendly and helpful custodian Pradeep who showed us around and helped us move in. The apartment was very clean and and well stocked. In addition to pots pans linen and cutlery we were pleasantly surprised to find tea, coffee and sugar etc. Its close proximity to the Coffee shop and other amenities at Cinnamon Grand is a huge plus! Will definitely revisit and recommend.

Best locationh

  • 4 of 5

First of all thanks to Mr. Prianga for all his efforts to make our stay enjoyable.

Most of all we liked that there was space and light also quiet enough. Combined with location, next to premium services starting from the lobby and friendly staff.

Though there was separate aironditioning in each room, we kept windows open all the day for fresh air. Somehow

the carpeted floors causes leeking nose and itching eyes.

Reading lights could have been brighter beside the bed an we considered electriccity quite expensive, more than 30 dollars for four nights, especially that we even didn't cook at all.

It is located within the Cinnamon Grand Hotel complex and all restaurants, bars and the Coffee Shop of the Cinnamon Grand are available. It is most centrally located with the US, UK and Indian Embassies within a 5-10 minute walk. The Fort area for shopping is 10 minutes by taxi or tuk tuk (and so is the Fort Railway Station). One cannot find a more central location for everything including Nightlife, Hotels and Clubs. An International Food Court , Keels Supermarket and many shops are located in the basement. The Galle Face Green , the Swimming Club, the Scots Kirk Church is only a 5 minute walk from Crescat Residencies.
