Located right in the centre of the historic Dutch Fort, the hotel is the ideal place to base yourself for a trip to Galle. The Galle Fort Hotel is set inside a beautifully restored seventeenth-century villa, designed by Channa Daswatte, a protege of the celebrated Geoffrey Bawa.
Stroll out of the door, and almost at once you will find yourself on the famous ramparts and crisscrossing streets of the fort. The sparkling swimming pool that crosses the open courtyard is irresistible. The restaurant is highly rated and attracts guests from outside the hotel, as does the speciality arrack bar and the coffee bar which overlooks the bustling streets of the fort.
From Galle, you can explore the south coast and its many quaint towns & beautiful beaches.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
