Colombo, Sri Lanka
Combining old world charm and elegance with modern amenities, the historic Galle Face Hotel enjoys a wonderful location, right on the beach and facing the Galle Face Green, an urban park along the seafront. If you're a swimmer, you can get your laps in at the 30-meter-long saltwater swimming pool. After, sip a cocktail in the garden and watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean. And don't miss the hotel's own collection of historical memorabilia and artifacts.
