Galle Fort Hotel

The story of the Galle Fort Hotel is as long and colourful as the island’s beautiful coastline. Originally an 18th-century Dutch villa, it has been a merchant’s mansion, an RAF barracks, a post office, bakery and even a cricket ground. Today, following a painstaking restoration, this grand fort has been beautifully reinvented as a boutique hotel and cultural icon. Step beneath the grand ceremonial entrance and immerse yourself in history, while still enjoying every modern comfort you could imagine.

The interiors perfectly reflect the hotel’s philosophy; a fine balance of history and luxury, the authentic and the indulgent. Take a refreshing dip in the courtyard pool. Sample fresh seafood and wonderfully deep flavours at the hotel’s restaurant. Then drift away in an antique four-poster bed. With just 14 suites, each room has its own personality – and every guest has an experience like no other.

If you can tear yourself away from the poolside, Galle offers a treat for all the senses. Wander streets lined with classic, historic architecture. Breathe in the scent of spices and sea air. Delve into boutique shops and dazzling markets. Or visit a local eatery and explore regional food – a mouthwatering blend of Dutch, Portuguese, English, Arab, Indian and Malay influences.
