About Galle Fort Hotel

Situated in the very heart of one of Sri Lanka's most historic locations, and named after it, Galle Fort Hotel is a remarkable feat of restoration and preservation. This impressive 13-bedroom 18th Century ex-Dutch villa offers an unparalleled combination of colonial grandeur and modern luxury, retaining its historical value and authenticity while also boasting some more recent creature comforts. In recognition of the hotels tireless dedication UNESCO awarded the hotel the Asia Pacific Heritage Award of Distinction, calling it "a masterpiece of cultural heritage and conservation".

This boutique hotel has 12 charming air conditioned rooms and suites of individual design, opening out to the central courtyard and the swimming pool. All the rooms have king-sized beds dressed with canopied mosquito netting and crisp white linen. The inner courtyard, with a small garden and 10-metre swimming pool, one of the largest in the Fort, offers a tranquil and exclusive area for guests. The charming bar-cum-cafe is becoming a favoured meeting point in the town as well. Meals can be taken on the terrace, the bar or in a grand dining room.

Outside of the hotel there are also numerous sights and activities to explore. Of course right on your doorstep you have Galle Fort, whose treasure trove of colonial antiquities, shops and cafes are all easily explored on foot, either on your own or with an informative local guide provided by the hotel. There are also whale watching cruises, guided bike tours, jungle yoga classes and private walks through a lowland tea plantation to name a few.

Important Information

Due to the hotel's historic architecture and design there are steps at every entrance to the rooms as well as within some of them. This does make the hotel not particularly well suited for wheelchair users.
