Is a legacy of Sri-Lanka’s Colonial Heritage.  It stands as a monument to the forbidden love of Governor General and the local mastizo dancing girl who cast a spell on his heart.  Time stands still in the corridors of this grand old building that whispers legends of love and adventure.  Step back in time to experience old Ceylon and enjoy her grandeur and mystery, her intoxicating beaches and most of all the enchantment of her people at his premier heritage hotel.  Set foot inside the hotel and be engulfed in the breath taking beauty of the premises.  All 275 rooms have an individual personality where colonial architecture and modern amenities blend to the lull of the ocean.
