The hotel in detail

Step beyond the amber-coloured walls of The Fortress Resort & Spa and you’ll think you’ve struck gold. Designed in the style of a historic fort, this exclusive beach retreat encircles lush gardens and luxurious features. Inside you’ll find a heavenly Ayurveda spa, Yoga pavilion, an inviting free-flowing pool and a selection of restaurants. With the glittering Indian Ocean just beyond, The The Fortress Resort & Spa feels like an undiscovered treasure.

Each room comes with a private terrace or balcony, while suites promise individual plunge pools and butler service. Expect enormous beds, crisp white fabrics and ultra-modern furnishings. Spend your days on a stylish lounger beside the pool, as the waves lap at the beach just below. Then experience utter bliss with a signature ‘water therapy in the exotic surrounds of the hotel spa. By night, feast on fresh seafood, Sri Lankan spiced dishes or Mediterranean menus – with chilled cocktails afterwards.

Speak to the dedicated Journeys Concierge who can help you plan trips and tours to discover the region. The Fortress Resort & Spa puts you close to Galle, where you can wander the town, admire Dutch colonial architecture and visit the renowned fort. Sinharaja Forest Reserve is within day trip distance too. This spectacular lowland rainforest is home to unique flora and fauna. Visit the wildlife sanctuaries of Yala or Uda Walawe to observe wild elephants and leopards. For a chance to relax in a beautiful setting, Koggala Beach, which fringes the hotel, boasts pristine sands and swaying palms.
