A classically beautiful old hotel

Overlooking the Colombo Harbour is an impressive, stately foyer characterised with colonial design. The Grand Oriental Hotel was once an elegant mansion of a renowned British governor, which has now been converted to a city hotel. It’s imperial aura resonates with the colonial identity of Colombo Fort.

Stepping into the hotel, guests are transported to the bygone days of old Ceylon. Timber furnishings and ornate fittings are all reminiscent of a different era. The 80-roomed property is designed to ensure the guest has an unforgettable stay. Standard and Deluxe rooms have been furnished with comfort in mind, while the spacious suites have been designed with colonial-styled furniture.

The hotel strives to offer a multidimensional dining experience. The popular Harbour Room restaurant that faces the port, serves delicious dishes from across the island. Relish the traditional flavours at the Sri Lankan restaurant.

Enjoy the night away at the Tap Bar and Blue Leopard. For a quick snack or for delicious sweets, the Tiffin Hut will cater to your needs. The hotel also has five banquet halls, including the Lotus Ballroom ideal for weddings.

Over the years, the hotel has hosted many iconic figures such as authors Anton Chekhov and Jose Rizal who loved its old world charm. The Grand Oriental Hotel promises a memorable getaway in the heart of Colombo.
