The Galle Face Hotel gives you the feeling of a time travel (it was build 1864) but with all modern facilities!
We stayed in the Regency Wing - as I reservated online, I got a V.I.P pass to enter the happy hour (a bar where only V.I.P guests get entry and free drinks from 5pm to 7pm).
After our arrival we got a plate of fresh fruits and chocolates in a box, served by a butler in our room.
The service was very friendly and helpfully - the laundry boy even made us a good price for our laundry!
The variety of the dinner buffet was AWESOME - from Sri Lankan over Mongolian to European food. And also the breakfast buffet leaves nothing to be desired (Fresh fruits, Sri Lankan breakfast, american/englisch breakfast and so on!)
The Hotel has a wide range of own restaurants such as the "Sea Spray" directly on the ocean - so you can also eat "á la carte".
The furniture and whole atmosphere of the Galle Face Hotel is one-of-a-kind, I never was as comfortable as in this hotel!
Also try the spa - we had an oriental massage and a face treatment deluxe!
Unfortunately the weather wasn't nice, so we couldn't go in the swimming pool, but it looked awesome (with view on the indian ocean)
I WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL - AND THE PRICE FOR THIS LUXURY IS AWESOME!
I think, I'll spend a part of my honeymoon there ;)
