Arguably Colombo’s most iconic and historic hotel, Galle Face Hotel has stood the test of time and reflects the grandeur of its colonial days. The property, built in 1864, overlooks the Indian Ocean and boasts a spacious pool, gym, spa, and several restaurants. Despite its grand appearance, Galle Face Hotel is a friendly and welcoming option, and we feel it’s a good choice due to its location and sea views.
The hotel is divided into two wings: the Regency Wing and the Classic Wing. The Regency Wing (currently in operation) is sympathetic to it colonial design and offers 81 rooms, including 12 suites, all with ocean views. The rooms are divided into Standard, Superior, and Deluxe Rooms. All rooms are classic in design with hardwood furniture, with comfortable beds and modern en-suite bathrooms.
