I absolutely loved this place. Tasteful, peaceful, elegant with extraordinary service with a smile everytime. Bunny rabbits on the grass and fat turtles in the pond. Great internet. Finally, Asante was who really made my stay special. He is the best. I will definitely return. Be aware it's not on the beach. But that's actually what makes it so quiet.

We had a fabulous time in a tastefully designed suite, overlooking lush greenery! Service staff were ever so attentive. The Chef is on hand to talk you through the menu or even...

This is a wonderful old colonial building turned into a beautiful luxury hotel. It is small and secluded yet only a few minutes away from the old town of Galle. The staff are excellent being very friendly and attentive and the breakfast is top-notch. A great romantic getaway.

Just a lovely place to rest. The colonial house has its own sense of peace and calmness. It was a pleasure to be a little out of town after a big day at the Fort. Lovely pool, attentive staff and just the majestic space to relax in ancient lounges and courtyards. Rooms are beautiful with high ceilings A/c and fan...
