Dutch Church Galle is 200 metres from The Galle Fort Hotel, while Galle Light house is 300 metres from the property.
The Galle Fort Hotel has 13 exquisite air-conditioned rooms and suites each with a unique interior and opening out to the central courtyard and the swimming pool. All the rooms are luxuriously furnished with king-sized beds dressed in canopied mosquito netting, crisp white linen and comfortable pillows. The en-suite bathrooms are stylish and have showers with hot and cold water.
In Galle, fresh produce and seafood are available in abundance all year round; famous for their delectable lobster and jumbo prawns, they also have the luxury of being able to select from the widest range of the freshest fruit and vegetables. No surprise then that freshness forms the foundation of their food philosophy. Their menu is quite literally a wonderful journey, since they draw inspiration from the famous Spice Route – the one merchants travelled from Europe to the mysterious lands of the East, in search of exotic spices.
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. But a sense of history does not mean that the Galle Fort’s guests will gather dust; far from it. The charming bar-cum-cafe is becoming a favored meeting point, with the Australian owners encouraging a genial atmosphere where intelligent opinions are to be shared, not hidden.
