The Banquet of the Galle Face Hotel has been Colombo’s most popular venue for Weddings and prestigious functions for over a Century.
The Hotel, having been established in 1864 is the oldest purpose built Hotel in the City of Colombo.
Its banquet facility rooms have been patronised by royalty, heads of state, diplomats and the elite of Sri Lankan visiting dignitaries. From the Colonial period to date the most prestigious functions had been held at the function rooms of the Galle Face Hotel and have received accolades.
The Colonial architecture and the sea front, City Centre location of the Hotel itself adds to the grandeur of the functions hosted in this Hotel. Hence, the Grand Ballroom which accommodates 350 in dinning and the Jubilee Room which accommodates 250 in dinning has been the most popular.
Another unique feature in the Galle Face Hotel is having the availability of an open air ‘Patio’ by the sea, which has been the perennial favourite for outdoor weddings as a backdrop, the setting sun over the Indian Ocean is an unmatched visual of immense photographic value. The photographic value of the ballroom with its Colonial architecture is another reason for the big demand. Very few heritage Hotels in the world could boast of such a magnificent Ballroom.
The Galle Face Hotel offers with this uniqueness and grandeur a reputation for food quality and service that has become part of its Heritage whether it is Western, Sri Lankan, or Continental Cuisine. The Galle Face Hotel food service and quality has continued to receive high praise over the years.
Presently the Banqueting Team is headed by Banquet Manager Prashantha De Silva, who along with his team of professionals goes that extra mile to satisfy their customers with attention to detail and sophistication.
The Galle Face Hotel therefore, is one of the unique places you could have a wedding or elite function.
