Inland from Galle
Sri Lanka, Galle
Info : Ivory House
Located just a short distance from the historic Galle Fort, this colonial villa is the perfect place for families or groups to relax and experience Sri Lanka’s lush nature and cultural heritage. With views over the rice paddy fields, Ivory House has a unique setting and takes inspiration from the Dutch colonial period.
There is plenty of opportunity to walk along the surrounding paddy fields and for those who are interested in a bit of history, take a tuk tuk to the historic and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle. There is also a 20m swimming pool perfect for guests who like nothing more than to relax by the pool and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Ivory House has four beautifully appointed rooms, with two king ensuite bedrooms and two queen ensuite bedrooms. All the rooms have air con and over head fans. While all the rooms have good views, the two master ensuite bedrooms have views overlooking the rice paddy fields. There is both outside and indoor space for dining and the villa also has a large living area.
Ivory House is great if you like to have a bit of privacy but not be too far off from a main city; nature and culture combined.
