    Beautiful room with period detailing, fabulous setting within the Galle Fort, attentive service and great food - we couldn’t fault the Galle Fort Hotel. The swimming pool, shaded by frangipani trees, was particularly attractive.

    This hotel is not sea-facing but is within the historic precincts of the Galle Fort. It is one of the finest heritage boutique hotels that one can stay in.

    If you head to the end of Church Street and turn left into Rampart street you will see the Lighthouse. Either side of the Lighthouse are beaches. They are approximately 10minute walk from the hotel.
