We had a very nice holiday at this hotel. The views are terrific and the food was wonderful as well. The staff was very Friendly and did everything they could for us to enjoy our holiday.
As we are vegetarians they took extra efforts to prepare good food.
The spa is highly recommended as well.

The Fortress is a great place to stay. Ultimate relaxation, great facilities and hospitality from another planet. The staff during our stay was really helpful, really going the extra mile. During our stay we enjoyed the excellent spa treatments, had a great time snorkeling with a dedicated lifeguard spreading see weed to attract the biggest fishes. Overall really great! Breakfast and dinner buffet are more than one could ever need, very tasty and diverse.

Would definitely recommend and come again.

We stayed in an Ocean View room and wow what a view! The ocean was about 50/60 metres away and due to the time of year and monsoon the waves were sometimes quite high. The added bonus of being so close to the incoming tides was the sight of sea turtles, a first for us. The room had an enormous very comfortable bed facing the sea. The bathroom had two entrances and an amazing amount of room. The breakfast buffet included everything you’d expect from this class of hotel. We only dined in twice. I didn’t think the menu was particularly extensive, but themed nights were well worth the money. As has been mentioned before, the staff really made our stay most enjoyable. Thank you so much to everyone at The Fortress.

Room tip: Ocean view

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon and it is proved to a fantastic place to relax and unwind. The location is ideal as its close to Galle but right on the coast. The view and the pool are stunning and the staff throughout the day could not do more for you. The breakfast buffet is great, with eggs fresh and made to your liking and the themed nights in the evening are a nice touch alongside the a la carte dining option.

Room tip: Ocean View room is worth it.

We spent the second week of our Sri Lankan honeymoon in this beautiful setting. We had a wonderful experience and found the staff extremely welcoming and helpful at every turn. The food was generally excellent - Crab Fest night in particular was my favourite.
I even got to see sea turtles swimming in the sea by the pool. One of the wonderful staff pointed them out to me at high tide.
