Galle Face Hotel veranda lounge

Very old, very posh, great Colombo spot for a cold glass of whatever takes your fancy. Or a pot of tea if that's your preference.

So elegant. And the lines are so clean and clear.

A very nice looking place to relax.

@kwind @taffy @dide It was a truly lovely spot to just relax and enjoy. Beautifully maintained and/or restored it's a true colonial-era gem with lots of lovely polished old wood and very comfy chairs and lounges. Our group just had afternoon drinks there which was most enjoyable, but I imagine to stay there would be pretty expensive. Great views over the Galle Face seaside parklands from that veranda too.

Very posh and for those who is privileged.

Lovely shot. It looks like it has been scrubbed up a bit since I sat there in 1992

Ooh this looks so colonial and private club! Absolutely love the architcture and those fans.

It looks exactly like my house Marnie!!! HAHA fav

love it - and love to be there:)

What a perfect old colonial feel this shot has. I love how you have captured the movement in the fans too.

Very posh :)

Nice place. Lovely repetition.
February 11th, 2019  
Such a beautifully well defined, clear shot. Love the place too - and the way those fans are lazily rotating. :)

@yaorenliu Oh yes, very much so Yao. We were just having a drink and moving on. Certainly a place worth seeing.

@jeneurell I've never been there before, but it's very swish now.

@casablanca Oh yes, oh so colonial. All that's missing are the punkah-wallahs. Fabulous place to see, and the drinks were affordable. I doubt the same could be said of the cost of rooms!
February 12th, 2019  
You really do go to some extremely nice places!!
February 12th, 2019  
@gigiflower Funny you should say that Sam, ours is pretty similar too. NOT!
February 12th, 2019  
@onewing Oh so colonial Babs, just missing the punkah-wallahs and the memsahibs having afternoon tea.
February 12th, 2019  
@merrelyn Not wrong. And here we all were in our grotty travelling gear, shorts, tee-shirts etc.
February 12th, 2019  
@haskar I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
February 12th, 2019  
@robz Oh yes, very Raj.
February 12th, 2019  
The white of the walls and the high ceiling really exudes elegance. I like the motion you caught in the ceiling fans too. Lovely!
February 12th, 2019  
Looks heavenly
