'Lavish and Historical meets Contemporary'

Adjacent to the stunning beaches of Koggla, The Fortress is an all-inclusive boutique resort with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. A range of rooms are outfitted with modern amenities and the latest technologies, yet there’s still a strong castaway vibe thanks to prominent wood features and a choice of direct beach access or a garden location. Fun filled leisure opportunities are plentiful with a selection of land and water sports and a relaxed spa. A choice of four restaurants offer a vast selection of Sri Lankan and Asian cuisine – as well as perfect romantic dining opportunities.
