The Galle Fort Hotel
Originally built as a Dutch merchant's villa in the 18th century, the Galle Fort Hotel is located within the historic old fort and offers 12 elegant air-conditioned rooms and suites, each with a
unique interior and doors opening out to the central courtyard and swimming pool.
World Discovery prices are based on the Garden Rooms (of which there are 3). These have a small private garden, wall fountain, verandah and attached bathroom with shower. The rooms are elegantly furnished with a modern king-sized four-poster bed. Because of the limited availability early booking is recommended. Upgrades are available at a supplement to Loft Suites, or to one of the larger exclusive suites or pavilions (details on request).
The inner courtyard contains a small garden and the 10-metre swimming pool. There is a charming bar-cum-cafe and an exciting restaurant offering classic Asian-West dishes, freshly and locally bought, and overseen by the owner-chef Christopher Ong. Meals can be taken on the terrace, the bar or in a grand dining room.
