Galle Fort Hotel

Galle, Sri Lanka


Stay at Galle Fort Hotel

Situated in the very heart of one of Sri Lanka’s most historic locations, and named after it, Galle Fort Hotel is a remarkable feat of restoration and preservation. This impressive 13-bedroom 18th Century ex-Dutch villa offers an unparalleled combination of colonial grandeur and modern luxury, retaining its historical value and authenticity while also boasting some more recent creature comforts. In recognition of the hotels tireless dedication UNESCO awarded the hotel the Asia Pacific Heritage Award of Distinction, calling it “a masterpiece of cultural heritage and conservation”.

This boutique hotel has 12 charming air conditioned rooms and suites of individual design, opening out to the central courtyard and the swimming pool. All the rooms have king-sized beds dressed with canopied mosquito netting and crisp white linen. The inner courtyard, with a small garden and 10-

metre swimming pool, one of the largest in the Fort, offers a tranquil and exclusive area for guests. The charming bar-cum-cafe is becoming a favoured meeting point in the town as well. Meals can be taken on the terrace, the bar or in a grand dining room.

Outside of the hotel there are also numerous sights and activities to explore. Of course right on your doorstep you have Galle Fort, whose treasure trove of colonial antiquities, shops and cafes are all easily explored on foot, either on your own or with an informative local guide provided by the hotel. There are also whale watching cruises, guided bike tours, jungle yoga classes and private walks through a lowland tea plantation to name a few.

Judy & Chris

We had an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. All the hotels, transfers, trips and experiences arranged by True Travel were perfect and all the arrangements went seamlessly according to plan. Our guide and driver, Thusita, was a really nice man and so knowledgeable, going out of his way to make sure that we experienced many of the Sri Lankan foods and traditions as possible. I would recommend True Travel to anyone especially if you have not visited the country before.

Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.


These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
