Certificate of Excellence
Grand Hotel, an Iconic Landmark of Sri Lanka situated in the high elms of Nuwara Eliya (known as "Little England" or "Switzerland of the East"), counts on a heritage exceeding 127 years. Enchanted with the tranquility and beauty of the salubrious climes of Nuwara Eliya, Sir Edward Barnes, Governor of Ceylon during the era from 1830 to 1850 built the Barnes Hall at his own expense, which now stands as the legendary "Grand Hotel" Whilst maintaining the British Colonial architecture, the Hotel has evolved to resonate palatial grandeur blended with exceptional hospitality that has surpassed the expectations of many a visitor.
