The Grand Ballroom at the Galadari Hotel emerges as a stylish and appealing choice with a versatile menu to match.
Words Nadeera Jayasinghe
Exuding sophistication and an element of sentimentality, the Grand Ballroom at Galadari Hotel has reopened with brand new features. The extensive refurbishment has resulted in the transformation of everything from lighting systems and chandeliers to wallpaper, panelling and carpets. Step in to the newly revamped ballroom and a sensation of magnificence reaches out from every corner.
The Grand Ballroom prides itself in being one of the most spacious function areas in the Colombo city. It is an elegant and practical venue for wedding receptions, trade shows, concerts and conferences.
The floor area of 6,200 square feet, a ceiling height of around 20 feet and the absence of pillars give the Grand Ballroom a very spacious feel. An advantageous feature in the design of the ballroom is that the ante-rooms and foyer areas can be combined by opening all the panelled doors to accommodate up to a thousand persons, depending on the seating requirement.
In the same way that the ballroom could be expanded, it can also be partitioned into smaller function rooms. This is highly popular for workshops and seminars when plenary sessions and simultaneous parallel meetings are conducted. Due to this feature, the venue is also ideal for fashion shows as the main event with the catwalk can be held in the ballroom while the ante-rooms double up as changing areas.

The hotel has the additional convenience of being able to host meal and tea breaks in an adjacent function room or in one of the other banquet halls available at the same floor level.
Widely recognised as a memorable location for the celebration of marriages, the Grand Ballroom offers a range of wedding packages and menus to select from. Personalised services are extended over the course of the preparations through its expert banquet team. Galadari Hotel is able to cater for a range of weddings, including poruwa ceremonies and elaborate receptions, while the venue is much sought after for weddings of the Muslim community.
