Info : Galle Fort Hotel
The Galle Fort Hotel is one of the finest hotels to be built in Sri Lanka in recent times. With nine suites, four garden rooms, wellness spa and a world-class restaurant; Galle Fort Hotel will indulge your every need.
Located right in the centre of the historic Dutch Fort, the hotel is the ideal place to base yourself for a trip to Galle. Set inside a beautifully restored seventeenth-century villa, the hotel was designed by Channa Daswatte, protege of the celebrated Geoffrey Bawa.
Stroll out of the door and almost at once you will find yourself on the famous ramparts and criss-crossing 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 coffee bar which overlooks the bustling streets of the fort.
From Galle you can explore the south coast ands its many interesting towns & beaches. The hotel and fort in general were not damaged in the tsunami. In 2005, Galle Fort Hotel was voted 'best new hotel in the world' by Conde Naste Traveller.

Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
Thanks for Harriet for arranging the candlelit dinner.
