The Fortress Resort & Spa

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.
