Hotel Review

“Once reputedly the best hotel East of the Suez, the landmark Galle Face Hotel — founded in 1864 — is the grand dame of Colombo, a striking colonnaded edifice set right on the edge of the sea. Opulent rooms and suites brim with the charm of a bygone era, whilst the ballroom frequently plays host to stunning society weddings and The Traveller’s Bar boasts an impressive list of celebrity guests. Relax with afternoon tea on the verandah, explore nearby Fort and Pettah, districts full of culture and history, and nibble spicy prawn wade on nearby Galle Face Green, where families amble and impromptu cricket matches begin under the kites which fill the sky. Savour delicious dishes at the 1864 Restaurant or get your toes tapping at trendy King of Mambo. Don’t miss the lowering of the national flag at sunset, accompanied by a kilt-clad bagpiper.”
