Galle Face Regency  Price rating for Galle Face RegencyPrice rating for Galle Face RegencyPrice rating for Galle Face Regency Colombo



The Galle Face Regency is a new extension to the City's famous Galle Face Hotel. As one of the great heritage landmarks of Sri Lanka and facing the Galle Face green, the hotel is a meeting place for many 'ladies who lunch', business men and tourists.  Whilst the Galle Face Hotel is much admired and the characteristic concierge in traditional dress never stops smiling, the rooms are tired and it is about to undergo a phased refurbishment. However, the Regency  provides the ideal escape for those in the know.

The Regency boasts its own entrance from Galle Road and has retained many of the features of the original Victorian architecture. Grand teak staircases and high ceilings create charm and with just 61 luxurious rooms, the Regency maintains a boutique atmosphere savoured by the discerning traveller wishing to escape the grandeur and bustling social climbers of the main hotel.

Recently refurbished to its former glory and set over 4 floors, the suites enjoy superb views across the Ocean. Each floor has its personal butler on 24hour call. The rooms have a contemporary and fresh atmosphere with decadent bathrooms and designer fittings throughout.

The facilitities of the Galle Face can be used but most prefer to enjoy the privacy of the Regency wing and indulge in the luxurious spa which opens January 2007. Exclusively for the use of Regency guests, the Spa has the country's finest therapists and a plethora of treatment styles.

Those fascinated by the Regency's history will enjoy the 1864 museum showing off a super collection of memorabilia from the 1800's.  The main show piece is a classic car once owned by Prince Philip during British reign. It was infact his first car whilst serving in the navy under Lord Mount Batton's charge. It is a magnificient piece of art and enginering worth considerably more than the 12 paid by Prince Philip (apparently in installments)!

Truely elegant, the Regency boutique is a rare discovery in Colombo's expanse of high rise hotel chains. Perfectly located for the City's cosmopolitan shops and restaurants and a pleasant walk from the World trade centre.
