Sun House, Galle Town Sri Lanka, Galle
High above Galle, with views of the harbour and the sea, this unique boutique hotel offers the chance to truly recuperate amidst wonderfully serene surroundings.
The pioneer in boutique hotels in Sri Lanka, the Sun House continues to set standards while its sister hotel, The Dutch House has taken them to a whole new level. Wide verandas, lush gardens, cocktails at sunset and world-class food make The Sun House an enduring success. With superb management, The Sun House is an entertaining and relaxing place to stay.
All the rooms are decorated beautifully with crisp whites and subtle shades and the furniture is polished wood and a range of antiques. The service is discreet and efficient and the whole feel, a world away from the manufactured surroundings of the large resorts further up the coast.
The intimate and fun 'Dick's Bar' is a great place to enjoy fine drinks and company from around Galle's social scene.
Galle is a wonderful old historical town, with the World Heritage listed Galle Fort, of particular interest. There are also some great excursions such as river boat trips, cultural sites and nature trails. The range of crafts in the area is also outstanding, with several nearby villages dedicated to different crafts.
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.
