The upstairs bedroom is fantastic with a wonderful terrace facing west for sunsets overlooking the ramparts (apparently the only villa in the fort with this). Everything works well - including a/c, mosquito netting, wifi (routers on both levels). We were actually relieved that the plunge...More

I am so sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. We have never received such negative comments before. I agree that the main bedroom with its unparalleled view of the Ramparts and the sea does put the other two smaller bedrooms in the shade...More

About the neighbourhood
Galle Fort is much more than a Unesco World Heritage site, it is a vibrant working community. Here you will find a unique mix of cultures, religions and architecture. Wander the streets to soak up the Fort’s history and enjoy browsing in the many shops. You will find gems and jewellery along with clothes, handicrafts and tea. You may chance upon a religious procession or a game of cricket as there is always something going on. Eat at one of the many restaurants or cafes or take a tuk tuk to a nearby sandy beach. Hire a bicycle and wend your way through stunning rice paddies or spend the day deep-sea fishing or whale watching. Of course, you could just lie on the terrace relax and watch the world of the Fort enfold before you.
Getting around
The easiest way to arrive from the airport is to hire a car and a driver but the Fort is also reachable from the airport by bus or train. Once you are staying in the Fort all the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. A tuk tuk can take you to the beach.
