The Galle Face Hotel is situated in the heart of the commercial capital of Sri Lanka . An oasis of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the city by the side of the Indian Ocean . A feature unique among the hotels in Colombo. Established in 1864, the Galle Face Hotel soon became and continues to be one of the most exquisite hotels East of the Suez.

It received the "Best Heritage Hotel" title two years running at the Presidential Awards for Travel and Tourism ( of Sri Lanka), held in June 2010 and June 2011.

TThe hotel was originally built by four British entrepreneurs in 1864. Its name derives from the stretch of lawn which it faces, known as the Gall Face Green. It began as a Dutch villa called Galle Face House. Land for the hotel's expansion was purchased between 1870 and 1894. In 1894, architect Thomas Skinner completed its current classic wing, its facade being largely intact until the present day, though with many refurbishments.

Now hotel has 77 Rooms categorised into Standard rooms, Deluxe rooms, Executive suite and Royal suite, furnished in elegant style with the addition of all modern international standard facilities.
