Locations don’t get much better than this. A boutique hotel right in the heart of the historic Galle Fort.
Offering a stylish stay with Galle’s many delights right on its doorstep, this charming boutique hotel is a fantastic option for those looking to explore the best of Sri Lanka.
Dating back to 1825, this striking building was once a printing press and later a school, the hotel now houses a selection restored of rooms and two heritage villas with three suites each, so there’s plenty of choice for travellers of all kinds.
Interiors are stunning, with exposed beams and polished hardwood flooring in the spacious main building and sleek modern interiors in the villa’s suites.
Guests here enjoy personal and friendly service and a superb location within Galle Fort. The inner central courtyard is shaded by beautiful frangipanis and is the perfect place to relax in the sun or enjoy an al fresco meal. This is also where you’ll find the lap pool – ideal for a quick refreshing dip after a day of exploring.
There are also plenty of cosy spots inside for unwinding – perhaps you’ll curl up on one of the cushioned sofas in the Library, or find an alcove in the Drawing Room to settle into with a good book.
Historic and steeped in character, the hotel couldn’t be better placed for holidays to Galle, and is ideal as a stop on your luxury Sri Lanka holiday.
