Galle Fort Hotel

Galle

BackBack

For those seeking an evocative base from which to explore Galle’s beaches, temples and tea plantations this fascinating 17th century property is the perfect colonial meets Ceylon chic bolt-hole.  Set on a narrow street in Galle Fort where auto rickshaws and cycles vie with the occasional linen upholstered ambassador, the Galle Fort Hotel conjures up a lost era when Somerset Maugham blazed the traveler’s trail. Think whirring fans and cocktails on the terrace served by serene sarong clad staff.

Celebrated in acres of press, this award-winning hotel is loved most for its simplicity and evocative charm. It is impressive without trying to impress. Galle Fort Hotel offers accommodation in 12 impressive rooms.
