Romancing Colombo

Galle Face North Wing Exterior

It may be one of the oldest hotels east of the Suez, but the Galle Face Hotel in the heart of Colombo is ageing most gracefully by all counts. After a recent 30-month refurbishment of its North Wing, the 152-year-old property is now fully restored to its former glory. Take your pick from a host of room options including eight iconic suites that have housed the likes of Vivian Leigh, Arthur C Clarke, Roger Moore and royalty. If these walls could talk.
