‘Boutique Luxury, Surrounded By History

Built in the 17th century during the Dutch colonial period, this former gem merchant’s mansion is located inside the historical fort of Galle and features 12 luxury suites. This boutique hotel is adorned with unusual design features and distinct Chinese inspiration. Suites are generously sized, with four poster beds and a blend of modern-come-antique interiors that open up onto the frangipani scented garden or the resort’s pool. The residence also offers a café and restaurant that promises a mixture of masterful Chinese-Thai cuisine and tantalising cocktails. The inner courtyard acts as the nerve centre of the hotel – providing a space to relax and unwind from a day exploring this fascinating, history laden area.



In Our Opinion

‘Private, serene and doused in charm, the Galle Fort Hotel has served as an RAF barracks, a former gem merchants mansion and a bakery in its long lasting life – now it’s a luxury boutique hotel and an ideal base from which to explore this fascinating fort.’
