One of the top hotels in Colombo, it's also a great place to sip a cocktail or enjoy the ocean views from Galle Face. Oozes charm and history - a must for luxury hotels fans.

Originally a Dutch villa, the Galle Face Hotel was once a meeting place for gentlemen of the colonial era. Situated in the heart of Colombo along the seafront and faces the famous Galle Face Green, this majestic hotel is recognised as a prestigious venue for fine dining and special events. No visit to Colombo is complete without stopping by at Galle Face Hotel for afternoon tea at the verandah or evening drinks at the hotel bar.

While I had no money to stay here, I did enjoy having a drink at the very colonial bar and having a swim in their pool that runs right along side the Indian Ocean.
This was a refuge from the heat and dust of the city.

Built in 1864, this grand old dame by the sea has had a facelift in 2005. With new rooms in a new wing. It's still nice to see the old elevators, the octogenarian doorman the quirky English sense of humour here and there - Upstairs, in the corridor of the old wing, a sign reads "Please don't smoke in bed because the ashes we find may be yours"

My husband proposed to me here and it couldn't have been more beautiful. We stayed in the Royal Thai Suite and it was amazing. The food is delicious and the entertainment was lovely. However, when we first checked in, we were given a regular standard room and it wasn't nice at all. The upgrade to the suite made up for it.
