Since 1864, GaIle Face Hotel has stood proudly on the shoreline of Colombo.
Over the centuries, this magnificent heritage hotel has remained unchanged in grandeur, today it is a national icon that represents both Sri Lanka’s colonial past and its independent present. A full refurbishment in 2015 saw Galle Face Hotel restored to full splendour, offering superlatively modern amenities coupled with timeless service. For generations, guests have come back time after time, seduced by the nostalgic charm of the hotel.
Each of the 156 rooms and suites has been restored to reflect the Galle Face Hotel’s rich heritage. Many rooms offer spectacular sea views, some with private balconies, and all furnished in elegant décor. In-room amenities include Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, electronic safety deposit box, satellite LCD TV, complimentary minibar, and 24 hour inroom dining.
The Galle Face Hotel takes pleasure in presenting some of Colombo’s finest cuisine. Whether it be an elegant afternoon tea at The Verandah, an innovative modern menu at the 1864, a specially mixed Pimms cup on the Chequerboard, or a spectacular Cuban experience at King of the Mambo, the Galle Face Hotel’s dining experiences are legendary.
The Galle Face Hotel swimming pool, the only salt water pool in Colombo, is the ideal place to relax with a cool drink or swim a few laps after a busy day in the office or exploring the city. The poolside area is a great place to sip on a cocktail and watch the sun go down.
The new Galle Face Hotel Spa by L’Occitane is a sanctuary of tranquillity for rejuvenating body and soul. L’OCCITANE celebrates and preserves traditions of the beautiful French region of Provence and has become the worldwide reference for Mediterranean wellbeing through its unique products.
