Info : The Fortress Resort & Spa
Experience luxury accommodation from a different angle at the Fortress Resort & Spa. Inspired by the nearby sixteenth century fort in Galle, a wooden gate opens to impeccably landscaped gardens and pool areas. The Fortress Resort & Spa is peaceful and spacious, with a secluded white sandy beach. Inside, the design is far from traditional: the interior is contemporary with an international flavour.
Multiple room types offer maximum comfort with subtle differences: the grand Fortress Residencies, Ocean Loft Suites, plus Fortress, Beach, Beach Splash, and Ocean rooms. The upper floor residences come with a private butler, as well as your very own infinity pool, and coastal views. All guests enjoy king size beds and spacious bathrooms with rain showers and generous bathtubs at The Fortress Resort & Spa.
The world class spa offers treatments and indulgent packages, and the business centre accommodates all professional requirements. International cuisine and well-paired wines are available in all of the six dining areas, and room service is available around the clock.
A word of caution though: whilst there are great beaches nearby, the beach outside the hotel itself is rocky and not great for swimming.
The Fortress Resort & Spa is a popular choice for anonymity, tranquility, and high level service. The grounds are lovingly maintained, and attention to detail demonstrates itself in all the available facilities.
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.
- Pool table
- Varied Local Excursions
- Wireless Internet
This was an excellently organised, tailor-made trip. We stayed in friendly hotels in a number of different locations, including a mud house in the jungle, beside a lake and in the hills among the tea plantations. We had a wonderful guide/driver and visited some amazing temples, spectacular world heritage sites, lovely villages and ate delicious, freshly harvested and cooked local food. It was a fabulous holiday!
