Sri Lanka, Galle
Info : Fort Bazaar
Fort Bazaar opened in 2016 following the success of its sister hotel The Wallawwa near Colombo (a property that’s always been popular with Experience Travel Group guests).
The location of The Fort Bazaar, right in the heart of atmospheric Galle Fort (a UNESCO world heritage site), allows you to immerse yourself in the heritage of the 17th century fortress easily. As an old merchant storehouse for spices, it is full of history and reminder of a bygone era of colonial wealth. After a day exploring, the hotel offers facilities such as a spa, cinema and gourmet restaurant to retreat to.
There are just 18 rooms and suites here, some connect to form family suites and 3 rooms offer balconies overlooking the rooftops of the fort.
*The swimming pool will open in early 2017, but please check with us for up to date details.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
The accommodation arranged for us was truly fantastic and we had to pinch ourselves sometimes - especially at the plantation, Villa Rosa and The Dutch House - WOW! The food and service everywhere were top quality.
