Hotel Description
The Grand Hotel in the hill station Nuwara Eliya has a heritage exceeding a 100 years. The former residence of Sir Edward Barnes, Governor of Sri Lanka from 1830 to 1850, the Grand Hotel is an excellent example of a mansion from the Elizabethan era. It retains the stateliness and grandeur of a Colonial Mansion and rightfully claims its place as one of the best hill country hotels in Asia. Like a misplaced bit of Europe set in the centre of a tropical island, the hill country resort town of Nuwara Eliya nestles in a cradle formed by three mountains at an elevation of 6,182 feet (1,884 meters) above sea level. Known as “Little England” or “Switzerland of the East,” it is situated 170 km. east of Colombo in the Central Province. Carpets of fragrant green velvet tea cover the hills, while majestic waterfalls tumble down from their source high in the mist-shrouded mountains.

156 Elegantly furnished rooms including 3 Presidential Suites and 3 Deluxe Suites overlook the magnificent, award-winning gardens of the Grand Hotel filled with beautifully laid out beds of flowers. Rooms in the new wing of the hotel overlook the golf course and present a soothing view of the rolling greens to relax your eyes and calm your soul. The Deluxe and Standard rooms are equipped with piped music, heaters and well appointed bathrooms with bath and shower. Additional features in the 65 Deluxe rooms include TV with national channels, Mini Bar and a range of guest amenities.
