    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.
